An imprisoned accomplice of notorious Houston serial killer Dean Corll, who lured at least 28 boys to their death from 1970 to 1973 in what became known as the Houston Mass Murders, has died in custody from COVID-19, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice announced Tuesday.
Authorities have charged a Philadelphia man with four separate murders. They believe he was a hit man who could be responsible for many more deaths.
Murders are always disturbing, but some are even worse than that. These killings were brutal, almost unimaginable in their depravity. The crimes horrified communities and stumped police leaving questions that lingered for decades afterward, as years passed without an arrest or even a credible suspect.
The holiday season is usually a time of celebration and cheer — but for some, it has been marked by violence and horror.
