15 - SERIAL: The Candy Man's Last Victim

In the 1970's Houston's coastal communities were victim to the 'Houston Mass Murders', the deadliest case of serial mass killings in the United States at the time.

The killer was local business man Dean Corll, nicknamed 'the candy man' because his family owned and operated several candy companies in the area.

Police say he and his two accomplices killed more than 29 young teenage boys in the 1970's, but investigators tell True Crime DEADLINE host Matt Johnson that they suspect there were at least ten more murders we may never know about.

Today a team of experts are working to identify the last known victim ML-73-3356, who is sometimes referred to as 'the swimsuit boy' because of the distinctive Catalina brand swim shorts he was wearing when he was murdered.

In this episode Matt speaks with forensic anthropologist Dr. Sharon M. Derrick, D-ABFA, Ph.D. who helped identify six of Corll's victims during her tenure at the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences. 

Anyone with any information in a possible identity of victim ML-73-3356, please call the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences at 713-796-6858 - or the National Center for Missing and exploited children at 1-800-843-5678.
