HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — A man serving six life sentences in connection with Houston’s infamous Candyman murders will not be considered for parole after pleading for parole on medical paroles.

Elmer Wayne Henley made global headlines in 1973 when he killed Dean Corll and led police to the bodies of nearly 30 young men and boys.

Henley admitted to participating in only six of the murders between 1970 and 1973, but was implicated in many more, along with a young man named David Brooks.

Henley requested a compassionate release last week and was told he is currently ineligible for release on medical grounds.

For privacy reasons, the state won’t say what Henley’s medical condition is. He was checked for parole more than 20 times, all of which were denied.

The Candyman murders are one of the most notorious crimes in Houston history, and our Jessica Willey has spent months dealing with the case.

At least 28 victims and countless grieving loved ones, a dedicated anthropologist who has spent years bringing the victims home, and almost 50 years later the big question – are there more bodies out there? You can watch The Candyman Murders anytime on the ABC13 app on your Firestick or Roku.
