Elmer Wayne Henley up for Parole

on June 24, 2012 in Serial Killers by

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.

    he should rot in the worst prison for the rest of his life for what he has done to those teenage kids. period.

  • ray eastwood says:

    He should be released, i mean that the boys that died had families and they would love to see him on the street. I lived right accross from them and lost a lot of friends, luckly, i was not one of them. he not only ruined his victims lives, but also his own family’s, his brothers were treated like shit, beat up all the time etc.. yeah, let him loose, he would have to register as a sex offender right.

  • I was an officer in Ramsey Unit 2 when Henley arrived. Butter wouldn't melt in his mouth. He made leather belts in the "piddling" shop. says:

    While I was working at the unit, now a sergeant, Wayne commited no offences. He behaved, in my opinion, as a young man enjoying his stay
    as if he was at home.
