Members of the Texas Board of Parole Hearings:
Re: Parole Hearing Planned for Elmer Wayne Henley, TDCJ #241618

Please DO NOT grant parole to Elmer Wayne Henley, TDCJ #241618. As a concerned citizen, I am writing to protest the projected parole of this convicted multiple murderer.

Between 1970 – 1973, Elmer Wayne Henley, along with Dean Corll and David Owen Brooks, abducted, raped, tortured and killed at least 29 known victims, with a great chance that there are more victims not found still to this day.

The heinous nature of the murders of these murders, along with the abductions, rapes and torture show that this killer should never be released from prison. His actions have shown that he is extremely volatile and that he has no regard for human life. For these heinous crimes, Henley was sentenced to 6 consecutive life sentences in prison, but he sentenced the families and friends to a lifetime of grief and sorrow for all of the victims. These loved ones are reminded of their horrible death of their loved one each and every time Elmer Wayne Henley comes up for parole. The victims should be the ones that you are concerned with the most. Think about them and their lives cut short, and the pain their loved ones go through every day, thinking and remembering them.

In the interests of justice, public safety, and to lessen the emotional trauma for the victim’s family, please consider giving Henley many years before any future parole reviews if not natural life. The time he has already spent does not cover the lives of all of the victims of these three monsters

Thank you for your consideration,

  1. I emphatically agree with your petition and will send it in. I find the parole hearing already an insult and mockery of the court that sentenced this vicious psychopath to 6 life terms for good reasons. It is for this reason that I support the death penalty in cases like this one.


  2. as a family member, you only need to write a short sentence if you do not want this kind of person in the community, and protest any parole. If your letter is too long they will not read it and it should be from your heart so what I’m saying is only an example. thank you for your support!


  3. The fact that Elmer is alive at all is an abomination. He, along with Brooks, should’ve been executed 40 years ago.


  4. There is a movie being made about this case! I was a kid in Galveston when this happened, I remember his name, from the new broadcast.


    • I see that there is a documentary being made called “In A Madman’s World” which is supposedly to show how Elmer Wayne Henley is a victim. I will not see that. It is an offense to the real victims, the ones that were murdered, which he helped with. In fact, Josh Vargas said that Rhonda Williams was writing a book on the incident. Incident? That is how he sees it? An incident could be considered one murder, but not 30+. They were serial killers. Period. It was not an incident. If Josh Vargas really wants to help the victims, it should be from the point of view of the victims, not centered around one of the killers, regardless of his age. He made choices and those choices killed other children.
