    Yes, it is definitely worth it to submit Norman for this case. However, I am not sure he was killed with Lyles, who was apparently killed by Dean alone around February 1 of that year. He would have been kept alive for at least 18 days or so for that to be the case. He might have been buried close to Joseph and just never found though.

    I still think that pic from Henley's trailer is Jay Joggerst.

    There are pictures on the special that they assume are the “swimsuit boy” when he was alive, found in the stash left behind. I don’t know why those were not included in NamUs as a just in case... he has a very... hollowed out look. Most of the boys were from Houston but he could have been from outside the area...

    I think it is SB because of the jacket and pants.

    Was it verified if that photo was taken inside of Corll's Pasadena home? I assume we're referring to the photo found in the abandoned bus that was left by Henley's mother decades ago.

    Hi All, I was noticing a lot of talk about Billy Ridinger. I didn't read every single post on here but scanned most of them. I did not see anyone mention that the Ridinger family knew the Corlls for many years going back to the early 1960s. They were family friends. In the Pasadena police reports Billy and his mother gave an interview to the police and told all about how they knew Dean. Billy of course lied and said he had not seen Dean in some time even though according to Henley he was at the Pasadena house before the final murders. I find it surprising that even after being raped by Dean (Brooks gives this info in his full statement) he continued to visit Dean. Though if Billy had been molested by Dean as a child or even early teen that would help explain his behavoir. The Houston PD have a report which states that Billy was asked to give another interview after they read Brook's statement that Billy had been raped by Dean. Unfortunately I have not found a copy of his second interview. I just have the HPD report stating he gave one. It says its attached but also not in the docs.

    Regarding Bobby French, has anyone found any information on who he is, family members, missing child report? I only see his name and a photo. Where did the photo come from? Was it at Dean's house? Was it given to the police?

    The only time I saw French's photo was from what I believe was a YouTube video that mentioned French's photo being in Corll's possession, but I am very skeptical that was true.

    The "Bobby French" photo is part of the Houston PD records.

    Hairstyle and color look similar, also cheekbones and shape of eyebrows and eyes. I think you're right.

    According to a poster, his aunt thinks so too.

    If he was hitchhiking from Missouri to California he could have run into Dean in East Texas when he was going to or from the Lake Sam Rayburn property. Could be buried out there. One of the many Henley and Brooks didn't know about. Poor guy.

    I find it really odd that Corll suddenly started killing in September 1970 and then at fairly regular intervals. Is there anything that gives credence to him doing this between him leaving the army in 1965 and September 1970?
    I’ve read that he was seen digging, burying ‘spoiled candy’ around 1967?

    it’s just odd to go from a supposed nothing to full on murdering like a flick of a switch.

    I think Corll’s dark history goes back much further.

    Its been a while since I read Jack Olsen's "The Man With the Candy" but I believe Olsen noted that Dean was around 27 when he was first observed digging in his "pouting room" behind the candy factory, in the areas he later covered with concrete. So around 67-68, two or three years before Brooks walked in on him. His cadence escalated over time, given his early activites, his documented history with Brooks and Henley, and "the ones he got on his own" after Brooks came into the picture and I would speculate his true death toll was in the low to mid forties.

    I've had this article for years. I finally found a version that has actual clear pictures of Susan McLemore, Rusty Branch, and Connie Cobble Shultz in it. I found McLemore's recollections creepy and disturbing. I had always wanted to hear more details about Dean's parties but found some of what she said hard to believe. For instance, is a group of teenage males going to be sitting nude under a table nude? And the teenagers attending his parties wouldn't be turned off by a thirty something host wandering around nude? And a kid turns blue, is picked up by Dean and taken to a back bedroom and no one says anything about it afterwards?
    Did you feel that Susan's descriptions of the parties were believable?

    Billy wore a paper bag over his head at all times while in court to conceal his identity.

    @Ontheriver Good find, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a photo of Billy.

    Has anyone read the rumors from a few of the players about other Dean “procurers?” In particular one who ended up dead and one who wasn’t killed?
