Fact #84336


Short story:

In Tecumseh, Michigan, USA, Henry Lee Lucas commits his first known murder, killing his mother during an argument about how he should care for her in her old age. In 1978, Lucas and an acquaintance, Ottis Toole, will embark on a cross-country murder spree. Lucas will eventually be convicted of murder in eleven different cases. His life and grim crimes will inspire several songs including To Henry Lee Lucas [From Ottis] by Postmortem [1997], Murder Company by Church of Misery [1999], Serial Killer by Macabre and The Ballad of Henry Lee Lucas by Treason Van Arch.
