AMERICA’S MOST PROLIFIC SERIAL KILLER MAY BE SITTING IN A TEXAS CELL. HERE’S WHAT THE FBI KNOWS ABOUT HIS CONFESSED MURDERS


  • Samuel Little, 78, told authorities about a multitude of murders that could rank him among the deadliest serial killers in U.S. history.
  • Little claims to have killed roughly 90 women across the U.S.
  • Many of the victims’ cases languished because they were allegedly prostitutes or drug addicts whose deaths were not always ruled a homicide.

A 78-year-old prisoner already serving out three consecutive life sentences for three killings confessed to 90 additional murders, a Texas prosecutor revealed earlier in November.

Lifelong drifter Samuel Little confessed a multitude of murders to authorities that could rank him among the deadliest serial killers in U.S. history. He confessed after the FBI connected him to an Odessa, Texas, cold case that’s been unsolved since 1994, reported NBC News.

The California prisoner confessed to the murders, many of which had remained uncorroborated, as part of a deal to let him move prisons. Little is in “poor health” and has been in prison since 2014, according to the FBI.

The FBI matched 34 of Little’s confessions with cold cases. Perhaps the details of cases from Mississippi to Georgia in which victims are known only as “Jane Doe” will finally come to light.

Many of the victims’ cases languished because they were on the outskirts of society — prostitutes and drug addicts whose deaths were not always ruled a homicide, according to the FBI. Virtually all of the alleged victims were women, and most of them were black.

Why Is Little In Texas?

Little was in a Texas court Monday for a pretrial hearing related to the murder of Denise Christie Brothers in Odessa, Texas, reported NBC News. The hearing reportedly lasted less than 10 minutes, and both parties will appear in court again in a few weeks as the prosecution team is still collecting evidence regarding the murder Little has already confessed to, according to CBS 7.

Brothers was 38 when she was strangled. Her body wasn’t found for a month after her disappearance, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Four Decades Of Murders?

Little confessed to murders he says go back to 1970. The breakthrough came when the FBI tied him to Brothers’s murder, and Texas Ranger James Holland traveled to California to interview Little. Representatives from the FBI’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (ViCAP), which connected Little to the Texas case, assisted Holland.

“Over the course of that interview in May,” ViCAP analyst Christina Palazzolo said according to the FBI. “[Little] went through city and state and gave Ranger Holland the number of people he killed in each place. Jackson, Mississippi — one; Cincinnati, Ohio — one; Phoenix, Arizona — three; Las Vegas, Nevada — one.”

The FBI published an online map with details of all of the murders Little claims to be responsible for, from southern California to...
