Ottis Toole

Ottis Toole killed at least three people, but it may have been many more. He was a companion of Henry Lee Lucas. Like Lucas, he admitted to countless crimes, including murder, rape and cannibalism, at least some of which likely weren’t true.

He is one of the main suspects in the murder of Adam Walsh, son of John Walsh.
