Serial Killer's claims prompt new look at 70's cases
Chilling confessions from his locked prison cell
Houston — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; Guns, a bra, a bullet, fingernail scrapings and a missing confession letter.
Police investigators and prosecutors in three counties said Tuesday they will attempt to unearth these and other long forgotten evidence as they review claims reported by the Houston Chronicle from convicted murderer Edward Harold Bell who says he stalked and killed as many as 11 young girls in the 1970s.
In a story published Sunday, Bell described a string of mostly unsolved murders in Galveston, Webster, Houston, Alvin and Dickinson from 1971 to 1976. Bell named four victims and blamed the crimes on a persuasive brainwashing "program."
