Elmer Wayne Henley up for Paroleon June 24, 2012 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
Elmer Wayne Henley, who assisted Dean Corll in a crime spree that resulted in the abduction, rape and murder of at least 28 teenage boys, is coming up for parole. From 1970 to 1973, Henley would lure the boys to Corll’s home where they were killed by Corll.
On August 8, 1973, then 17-year-old Henley shot and killed Corll. After killing Corll, Henley released the two victims they had, and turned himself into the Pasadena, Texas police.
Henley received six life sentences, but given the statutes at the time, has to be brought up for parole at regular intervals. He has gone before the parole board 19 times, and been rejected just as many.
The parole hearing will be held in August. Family members of several of his victims hope to be able to address the panel.
