Friday the 13th and almost a full moon? What's the worst that can happen. 

To help put that statement in better context, let's take a moment to examine some of the most famous Serial Killers from Texas.

Everything is bigger in Texas. Unfortunately that includes its killers. Some have some names that make you think:

The Candy Man, The Broomstick Killer, The Eyeball Killer. Then there was the nutty nurse that liked to kill babies. See what kind crazy was let loose in the Great State of Texas.

One of these serial killers, who was sent to death row, released and then killed again is from a small town 25 minutes away from us. Can you guess where?

  • Genene Anne Jones

    Baby Killer!

    Genene Anne Jones was a pediatric nurse in San Antonio and Kerrville. Back in 1985 she was convicted in the death of a 15-month-old. They say she might have killed up to 46 infants under her care in the 70s & early 80s.

    Just so you know, she's scheduled to be released from prison in 2018.

    The Candy Man

    Dean Corll is suspected to have raped and killed 28 boys in the Houston area from 1970 to 1973. The reason it stopped in 1973 is because two of his accomplices killed him during an attempted murder and rape of two teens.
