Norman told his mother he was going home, and he agreed to help her move the next day. He apparently never arrived home and has never been heard from again.
Henley shot Corll to death in August 1973, then called the police and confessed to his role in the abductions and murders. Ultimately, 28 bodies were recovered; one has never been identified. Brooks and Henley were both sentenced to six consecutive terms of 99 years in prison for their roles in the slayings. Brooks was never released, and died in custody in 2020, at the age of 65. Henley has been eligible for parole since 1983, but he has been repeatedly denied release and remains in prison. His next possible parole date is in 2025.
Norman lived in Houston with his father during the 1970-1971 school year, in the neighborhood where many of Corll's victims came from, and he attended Jackson Junior High School in Houston, which Henley also went to. After he moved to Dallas to be with his mother, he continued to visit Houston regularly on weekends.
It hasn't been proven that Norman was one of Corll's victims, and none of the recovered corpses turned out to be his. His case remains unsolved.
