Between 1970 and 1973 in Houston, Texas, at least 28 boys and young men were kidnapped, raped, tortured, and killed by serial killer Dean Corll and Elmer Wayne Henley.

David Owen Brooks, born on February 12, 1955, and died on May 28, 2020, was an American who was found guilty of murder. After Henley shot Corll to death, the crimes—which came to be known as the Houston Mass Murders—came to light.

Brooks and Henley had been friends with many of the victims. The Houston Mass Murders were thought to be the worst case of serial killing in American history at the time of their discovery.

Brooks was denied parole multiple times between his 1975 conviction and his death from COVID-19 in 2020 (the most recent denial occurring in 2018).
