'Blood, Lies & Alibis': 1970s Serial Killer 'Candy Man' Dean Corll Had Two Teen Accomplices

"Blood, Lies & Alibis" (Mon., 9 p.m. ET on ID) looked all the way back to the early 1970s at one of the earliest and most disturbing serial killer cases. Dean Corll was thought to be just a friendly electrician, but he was actually the "Candy Man," with a death count of at least 27 people.

Corll had molested and killed young teen boys from 1970 until his death in 1973. At the time, they thought one of his victims had managed to turn the tables on his attacker, but the truth was far more terrifying.

Corll had two teen accomplices, and it was one of them who killed him. Wayne Henley was 17-years old when he killed Corll. This after he and fellow 17-year old David Brooks had lured Corll's victims in, and later helped him dispose of the bodies.

Henley received six 99-year sentences for his part in the killings, while Brooks got one 99-year sentence. But both men are currently up for parole. According to Houston's KDOG, the victims' families are trying to ensure both men are denied.

Even after all these years, some families are still looking for closure. Due to the technological limitations at the time, six of the recovered bodies were never identified. Police are using modern technology, and re-interviewing both men in prison, in hopes of identifying them.
