In 1982, Henry Lee Lucas, confessed to picking up a woman in Oklahoma, and it’s killing her on the highway, in the ditch of it in Williamson County. Lucas was eventually tried for murder, convicted, and sentenced to death, but later recanted his confession.

Former Williamson County District Attorney Ed Walsh and told FOX7, last May, that Luke was “recanted almost all of his confessions after the trial.”

“No one knows how many people he has killed,” Walsh said at the time. “He doesn’t necessarily have to kill everybody, which he was alleged to have been killed.”

Lucas had confessed to committing 600 murders in more than 20 states in the 1980’s, but was only convicted and sentenced to death for the Orange Socks killing. He was all of six life terms for nine of the murders, the New York Times reported at the time.

His case was investigated by then-Texas Gov. The George W. Bush administration, in 1998, that made the decision to commute his sentence to life in prison, as it was, Lucas was in Florida at the time of the murder, in addition to his recanted confession, that it was the only thing to link him to the murder. Luke ended up dying in a Texas prison in 2001.

The department’s cold case unit is hoping the new sketch of the “Orange Socks,” it is done by a forensic artist, will generate new leads in the case.

“We’re going to continue to do what we can to help bring a voice to her, identify her, and in the end, the people responsible to justice,” Pokorny told FOX7.

In January, the Sheriff, to Robert Chody said that the preliminary forensic proof-testing on the DNA found on the victim’s socks, and showed that there are two or more male staff members. The DNA was further processed to separate it from the staff, and the generation of the potential profiles, FOX7 reported at the time.

The authorities are of the opinion that, with the advances in DNA testing will finally reveal who the suspects are and who the victim is, and reminding the public this week that the public’s attention, databases are the key to helping law enforcement solve these cases.

Pokorny told FOX7 that, in the genealogy database sites that allow users to “opt-in” or “out of service” so that the enforcement of the law, to the use of our website and can end up making the job a lot more difficult for researchers in the field.

“The only way we’ll be able to go by means of the study and a non-identified person, in order to help you identify, is using the databases, other law enforcement databases, we can research, but they are more of a suspect-driven,” he said.

Pokorny added that the sites for which the analysis of DNA data from any other consideration, on the basis of the genetic genealogy testing companies which can help them to finally resolve the almost 40-year-old mystery in dallas, Texas.
