FBI says Samuel Little is the most prolific serial killer in US history
The man authorities believe to be the most prolific killer in the history of our country finally broke down and confirmed what authorities suspected.
Samuel Little has confessed to 93 murders, and authorities have already verified his role in 50 of them.
Over the course of 35 years, Little claims to have murdered 93 people. He preferred to kill women and conducted the crimes between the years 1970 and 2005.
Of the 93 confessions he has given to the FBI so far, the agency has already been able to confirm 50.
The FBI also stated its agents believe that all of Little’s confessions are credible, it is just a matter of confirming the details he has provided.
Little was already in custody when authorities realized they had a person likely to be one of the most notorious killers of our day already behind bars. The interviews started more than a year ago when a Texas Ranger started speaking with Little.
The killer was more than happy to share information about his crimes, telling the officer that he tried to murder women he thought nobody would ever miss, such as prostitutes.
Closure for Families
Police initially arrested Little on drug charges. He was removed from a homeless shelter during the arrest, and when DNA samples were taken, he was linked to several murders that had happened in the 1980s but had gone unsolved.
For those crimes, he received three life sentences without the possibility of parole.
Even though Little will never leave prison again, authorities want to bring closure in the remaining cases simply to give victims’ families some sense of justice.
Little has been very cooperative, actually drawing pictures of his victims for police to go with the backstories of how he killed them.
There seems to be no rhyme or reason to the murders, as they occurred throughout several states in the country over the course of 30 years, including Florida, Arkansas, and Nevada.
