Jim Henderson

Jim Henderson, along with Hugh Aynesworth, was nominated for the 1986 Pulitzer Prize for their Investigative Reporting. While working for the Dallas Times Herald, they researched the confessions of Henry Lee Lucas who was thought to be a serial killer and Lucas boasted of murders in the hundreds. While he was convicted of committing more than one murder, Jim Henderson and Hugh Aynesworth discovered Lucas would not have been able to commit many of the murders because they uncovered evidence proving he was at a different location when many of the crimes took place. They exposed his many confessions as a hoax. Speaking at a Crimesolvers meeting (the Fort Worth Chapter of Sisters in Crime) he entertained us with many stories and anecdotes of his time as a reporter. Jim Henderson has many true crime books published. His most recent book is Bob Bullock - God Bless Texas
