The Texas Killing Fields location

This is the location of the Texas Killing Fields.

It is situated at the corner of Calder Drive and Ervin Street in League City, Texas.

An unidentified serial killer dumped the bodies of four women in this rural oil field between 1983 and 1991.

The victims were Heide Villarreal-Fye (23), Laura Miller (16), Audrey Cook (30), and Donna Prudhomme (34).

Cook and Prudhomme were known as Jane Doe and Janet Doe until 2019, when DNA testing finally uncovered their true identities.

Due to the location, the case is sometimes referred to as the Calder Road Killings.

Multiple serial killers

It is a misconception that the murders were the work of multiple killers.

The FBI believes that one person is responsible for the four victims found in this field, as the odds of two serial killers using the same dumping ground are extremely low.

To put it into perspective, there is currently no known precedent of two serial killers using the exact same spot.


Over the years, the case has become muddied by attempts to connect other victims to the four women whose bodies were discovered at this field in League City.

For example, the Wikipedia article about the subject lists 14-year-old Lynette Bibbs as a victim even though her body was found in Cleveland, Texas—a town that is 73 miles away.

All in all, it appears as though dozens of victims have been grouped under the umbrella term "the Texas Killing Fields" on the basis that they were all found within a very large radius of Interstate Highway 45.

This has created the impression that multiple serial killers used the same plot of land as a dumping ground.

However, the original location has always been this oil field in the 3000 block of Calder Drive.

It was here that the authorities found the remains of Villarreal-Fye, Miller, Cook, and Prudhomme.

It is likely that one person murdered these four women. It is also possible that he is responsible for some of the other killings that occurred along the interstate.

This is an aerial image of Calder Field in League City.

During the 1980s and early 1990s, this area was a lot more desolate than it is today. For example, the neighborhood on the eastern side of Calder Drive wasn't built until recent years.

The memorial site for the Texas Killing Fields victims is situated at the back of Magnolia Creek Baptist Church. However, all of the remains were discovered on the property that sits behind it.

Using old aerial photographs, we were able to figure out the approximate location where each victim was found.

It is likely that the killer chose this desolate oil field because he was somewhat familiar with it. When he picked the location, he knew that the odds of someone disturbing him there were very low.

These days, there is a gate at the entrance.

The disused oil field consists of multiple interconnected dirt tracks.

Although locals call it "Calder Field", both the main entrance (A) and the dirt road (B) are on Ervin Street.



The four victims went missing between 1983 and 1991.

Heide Villarreal-Fye was a 23-year-old cocktail waitress who vanished on October 10th, 1983. At the time, she was walking to a convenience store near the corner of West Main Street and Hobbs Road in League City. It is believed that she was beaten to death.

On September 10th, 1984, 16-year-old Laura Miller disappeared. She was last seen using a pay phone near the exact same store that Villarreal-Fye had walked to.

Audrey Cook (30) went missing at some point in December 1985. Cook was a mechanic by trade. However, by 1985, she had reportedly started using and selling cocaine.

Donna Prudhomme (34) was last seen in July 1991. Notably, her disappearance occurred roughly six years after the previous victim went missing. Prudhomme was a frequent patron of bars along NASA Road 1 in Seabrook, which is just 10 miles away. In 1991, she was living in a nearby town called Nassau Bay.

The bodies of Miller and Cook were both found in February 1986. The discovery of their remains may have convinced the killer that it was too risky to continue using the same site. This may explain the six-year gap between Cook and Prudhomme.

It is also possible that he was incarcerated, working elsewhere, or simply too busy with life commitments.

Convenience store

Convenience store

The first two victims were seemingly picked up (or abducted) near a convenience store on the corner of West Main Street and Hobbs Road.

The two locations are just three miles apart. Judging by Google Maps data, it would have taken the killer less than 10 minutes to drive from the store to Calder Field.

Donna Prudhomme

Donna Prudhomme

Prudhomme disappeared six years after Cook was murdered. She was also found further south than the rest of the victims.

In Prudhomme's case, it seems as though the killer used one of these entrances on Calder Road.

The entrance on the left runs beside a small stream. Tire marks on the northern bank suggest that it can be traversed by 4x4 trucks and other off-road vehicles.
