Bad Henry

Henry Louis Wallace terrorized Charlotte, North Carolina, from May 1992 to March 1994. Wallace preyed on lower economic class Black women between 17 and 35 years old. He knew most of his victims, some through his job at Taco Bell, and gained their trust with his friendly demeanor and gentle nature-concealing a monster fueled by drug abuse and rage against women.

Read an Excerpt

Aubrey Spain Murder

Wallace needed money and knew Spain was a shift manager at the Taco Bell with access to the store’s safe. He was angry with her because he believed she had helped get him fired from his job. He found out Spain was on vacation and waited for her return.

Upon her return, Wallace went over to her apartment. Without a thought, she let her friend, Wallace, into the apartment. Wallace asked her if she wanted to smoke a joint. She said yes and Wallace went home to get a joint.

He came back. They smoked a joint, drank some beer, chatted, and were having a good time. Spain relaxed. Her guard was down. She was enjoying her time with her friend. They both continued to smoke marijuana and get high.

When Spain turned her back, Wallace made his move. He sprang and put Spain in his Boston chokehold. Then he threw her to the ground. She was terrified. Wallace demanded to know the combination. Spain said she did not know the combination. “What about the money in your personal bank account?” Wallace demanded.

Spain said she had just returned from a vacation and had none. Wallace dragged her into the bedroom and raped her. She screamed in terror and begged Wallace not to hurt her. He raped her again.
