Softcover. "Mama...I killed Dean!" Millions of television viewers heard this anguished cry on August 8, 1973. It was blurted into a telephne by 17-yr. old Wayne Henley of Houston as cameras whirred and bright lights bathed him. Henley had told police he killed Dean Coril in self-defence. He had them to a remote shed where he said Coril, a sadistic homosexual, had buried 2 youths he had slain. But police unearthed 17 bodies in the shed - and suddenly Wayne Henley no longer was an innocent teenager who had killed to save himself. Before they were through police had disinterred the remains of 27 youths - some of them sexually mutilated - and had unraveled a horror tale of sex, sadism and wanton slaughter that shocked the world. It was the largest mass murder in the country's modern history. 160pp. trade size card covers. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly sunned o/w Vg+ with no creasing or tears.
