The boat shed where Dean Corll buried 17 of his victims

This is the boat shed where Dean Corll and his two accomplices buried the bodies of 17 teenage boys.

Corll was a serial killer who tortured and murdered at least 28 teenagers between 1970 and 1973.

Of those 28 victims, 17 were buried underneath the floor of shed #11 at Player Street in southwest Houston.

His murder spree finally came to an end on August 8th, 1973, when his accomplice, Elmer Henley, shot him to death at his house on Lamar Drive.

After killing Corll, Henley confessed to the police and led them directly to this yard.
