Man Confesses To Some 100 Murders

Man Confesses To Some 100 Murders

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said that a 79-year-old man who confessed to murdering more than 90 women is the most prolific serial killer in U.S. history.

The FBI made the announcement on Sunday, adding that their crime analysts believe all 93 murders Little confessed to are "credible". Investigators have confirmed 50 of those murders and are seeking information to confirm the rest of Little's confessions.

Samuel Little confessed to 93 murders, according to the FBI, but investigators have only been able to verify about 50 of those reported.

Little, now 79, has provided information on more than 90 killings authorities say he committed across the country from 1970 to 2005, including 20-year-old Rosie Hill's 1982 slaying in Marion County. Some of his victims were originally believed to be ODs or accidental deaths and some bodies have never been found.

The FBI also asked the public for help determining the identities of five of Little's potential victims - one man and four women - in Florida, Arkansas, Kentucky, Nevada and Louisiana.

Law enforcement is still working to verify the remaining 43 cases he confessed to.

Little targeted vulnerable individuals, mostly black women, many of whom were sex workers or drug users, officials say. He has been extradited to Texas, where he will likely spend the rest of his life in prison.

Ridgway was convicted of 49 murders in 2004 and sentenced to life imprisonment in Washington State Penitentiary.

Social media critics have said many of Little's victims' deaths were not properly investigated because of apathetic and even racist attitudes of detectives, especially in southern states.

Little's confessions mean that he has overtaken Gary Ridgway, otherwise known as Green River Killer, in terms of number of people murdered in the US. Little said he strangled all of his victims bar one, whom he drowned.

In another video, he described a victim in New Orleans. In August, he pleaded guilty to murdering women in Ohio.

All told, he is believed responsible for more killings than Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy and Jeffrey Dahmer combined.

Undated sketches provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation shows drawings made by serial killer Samuel Little, based on his memories of some of his victims.

Little doesn't recall the identities or information about many of his victims, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said, so video footage of his confessions has been released in the hope citizens will come forward to corroborate his stories. But Samuel Little might top them all.
