Blue Beacon truck wash, was the least popular area among younger children. The Blue Beacon woods were frequented by transients and drug users, although older kids liked to ride bikes along the trails. The path leading from behind the truck wash separated into two directions. One path went toward the drainage ditch running north-south inside of the woods, flowing into the 10-Mile Bayou. The other path went to the pipe-bridge, leading into the southern portion of the woods.
The woods south of the pipe-bridge were sometimes referred to as "Robin Hood". Children of all ages spent time in this portion of the woods. Many of the kids were afraid to cross the pipe-bridge as it consisted of a narrow sewage pipe, supported by steel I-beams on both sides. To the east of the southern patch of woods was an area known as "Devil's Den". This part of the woods contained a rope swing that was used to get across another drainage ditch.
Younger children were cautioned not to go into the woods, but the temptation was great and many kids played their regardless.
For the trial, the prosecution prepared a skewed version of Robin Hood Hills, showing where many of the major landmarks were located in reference to the woods.
Christopher Byers, Stevie Branch, and Michael Moore were found nude and hogtied in the drainage ditch to the east of the Blue Beacon truckwash. Two bicycles belonging to the boys were found in the bayou.
