MP of the week: Darren Hillis

This week’s featured missing person is Darren Bruce Hills, a 14-year-old boy who disappeared while walking to school in Norfolk, Virginia in 1973.  If still alive, he’d be 59 today.

I don’t know anything much about the case, unfortunately. He has a Facebook page but it doesn’t really say much. This article suggests he was a victim of the serial killer Dean Corll, but I don’t know if anything came of that suggestion.

    I wonder if anyone in his family, was serving in the military at the time. There is a major military bases and shipyard there. Also, I seem to remember Dean, with Texas for some reason. But, don’t the full story on him. There was a U.S. Navy guy who was involved in several murders, but most of them were females.

    When, I read up on Dean Corll, all his known victims were all from the Houston, Texas area. So, it would seem out of character for him to travel all the way to Virginia, to grab someone, just one victim. Also, he was comfortable in his neck of the woods. It also seems that his two buddies sort of recruited a number of his victims, and it seems that they recruited two at a time.

    The theory that Darren is one of Dean Corll’s victims comes from him resembling a picture of a unknown boy that was found in Corll’s possession. And the distance thing seems far fetched but this year Andrew Greer was identified as a vehicle-pedestrian victim. He left his school in Michigan in 1979 and never went home. Turns out he had hitchhiked all the way to Georgia in a few days.
