Samuel Little: US serial killer 'admits 90 murders'

The FBI has revealed that Samuel Little, 78, a former boxer-turned-drifter who was arrested on drug charges in 2012, has since confessed to 90 murders and is being investigated as potentially the deadliest serial killer in USA history, AFP reports.

During the trial, Prosecutor Beth Silverman described Little as a "remorseless, vicious serial killer", arguing that the evidence "established that he derived sexual gratification from the act of strangling and murdering his victims".

Little, who is serving time in a California prison for the murders of three women, began confessing to the slayings in September. He displayed a "dark, violent streak" in his many crimes, which included shoplifting, fraud, drug charges, solicitation, and breaking and entering, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.

The world's most prolific serial killers in modern history have been known to target marginalized groups, including women, children and sex workers. "The FBI is also encouraging law enforcement to re-visit their cold cases and contact ViCAP if they have any information", an FBI spokeswoman said in an e-mail. Investigators said Little would steal in one city or town to get money for alcohol and drugs, and then would move on. Little was convicted and sentenced to three consecutive life sentences without parole.

The case from 1981 is about a black female, who was reportedly killed her in Chattanooga and dumped on I-24. He was charged with assaulting or killing several women in different states in the 1980s, but there wasn't enough evidence for the juries to convict him.

Omaha Police are working with Texas Rangers to see if there's a connection between Little and an unsolved murder case here from the 1970s.

"A Jane Doe who turned up dead in an alley in New Orleans may look like an isolated event", said ViCAP supervisory crime analyst Kevin Fitzsimmons.

The FBI is now investigating a total of 90 murders to which he has confessed or been connected, 34 of which they have already verified.

Trump attacks Mueller day after Manafort accused of lying
Buzzfeed News adds : "Prosecutors said they were done working with Manafort, and asked the judge to set a date for sentencing". But things between the special counsel and Manafort have reportedly been rocky for a while.

The ViCap team said in a news release earlier this week they had so far established his ties to 34 deaths, with many others apparently pending confirmation.

During that interview with Texas Ranger James Holland, Little detailed the number of his alleged killings by city and state. Their bodies sometimes went unidentified and their deaths un-investigated. "Jackson, Mississippi - one; Cincinnati, Ohio - one; Phoenix, Arizona - three; Las Vegas, Nevada - one".

Little's method of killing did not always leave clear signs that the death was a homicide.

Texas Ranger James Holland has been conducting almost daily interviews with Little, while Palazzolo and Williamson are examining mortuary records, death certificates and cold case files, trying to gather as much detail as they can to see if other unsolved murder cases can finally be closed.

The former competitive boxer usually stunned or knocked out his victims with powerful punches and then strangled them.

Investigators are now looking to identify Little's victims and provide closure and justice in the cases.

A former boxer, Little would stun his victims with a powerful blow before strangling them, meaning numerous deaths were attributed to drug over doses or natural causes, the agency said.
