"The Candy Man"
"The Candy Man"
Born on December 24, 1939 in Fort Wayne, Indiana
To Mary Robinson and Arnold Caroll
In 1964 they got a divorce and he relocated to a trailer in Memphis with his mother
In 1950, Corll's parents remarried and moved to Pasadena but in 1953, they once again divorced and he moved to Vidor, Texas.
Corll's mother and new stepfather started a small family candy company named 'Pecan Prince'.
Corll was working day and night in the candy shop while still attending school.
In 1958 his family moved to the northern outskirts of Houston for the family candy business
He attended Vidor High School from 1954 to 1958 in Vidor, Texas (Orange County).
Regarded as a well-behaved student who achieved satisfactory grades .
Was a loner, and his only major interest was in band, playing the trombone.
After graduation his family moved to the Houston Heights
He didn't go to college but in 1964 Corll was drafted into the military, but was released on a hardship discharge a year later so he could return home to help with the growing candy business.
Here he earned the name, The Candy Man,
because often he would treat children
to free candy.
His IQ was in normal the normal range and was 116
18-year-old college freshman, Jeffrey Konen, on September 25, 1970.
At the time of Konen's disappearance, Corll lived in an apartment on Yorktown Street, near the intersection of Westheimer Road.
Corll offered to drive Konen to his parents' home and Konen evidently accepted it.
David Brooks led police to the body on August 10, 1973.
It was buried at High Island Beach. Forensic scientists deduced that he had died of asphyxiation.
The body was found wrapped in plastic, naked, and bound hand and foot, insinuating he had also been violated.
Due to his unusual death,no psychological test were done and he was never able to say why he committed all those murders.
I would contribute his psychotic killings to his parents rocky relationship, and that be became anti social after being diagnosed with a heart murmur as a child
I also think he may have had some sort of personality disorder where consciously he was trying to relive a more positive childhood by interacting with little boys, and somewhere deep in his unconcious he was fighting this urge and so he then took it out on the boys he was attracted to, raping, torturing, and killing them.
There are 28 known victims but many investigators believe there to be more.

On August 7, 1973 Henley, he made Corll furious when he brought his girlfriend and another friend, Tim to his house. The group drank and did drugs and each fell asleep.
When Henley awoke, his feet were bound and Corll was handcuffing him to his "torture" board. His girlfriend and Tim were also bound.
Henley managed to convince Corll to free him by promising to participate in the torture and murder of his friends.
Once free, he went along with some of Corll's instructions, Corll meanwhile, was trying to rape Tim, but the he fought so much Corll left the room.
Henley immediately went for Corll's gun. When Corll returned, Henley shot him six times, killing him. And then he called 911.
In custody Henley admitted to the murder of Dean Corll and then began to astonish the police with the accounts of the other murders and the revealing of Corll's true identity.
Later Brooks was found guilty of one murder and sentenced to life in prison.
Henley was convicted of six of the murders and sentenced to six 99-year-terms. He was not convicted of killing Corll because it was judged as an act of self-defense.
A local killer
He had two accomplices 15 year old David Brooks and 14 year old Elmer Henley. He paid them $200 "per head" to lure young boys to his house.
And a sexual relationship gradually developed between Brooks and Corll
