The 78-year-old inmate, Samuel Little, had been sentenced to three consecutive life sentences for murders he had committed in Los Angeles County. While imprisoned, investigators uncovered something about his past that has spread across worldwide headlines like wildfire.
According to sources, Little’s name happened to appear in the FBI’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Program where he was connected to a number of unsolved murders. This immediately led investigators to pursue this new lead.
When they approached Little to question him about these connections, they got all they had hoped for and more. Little was not apprehensive to cooperate, making his confessions all the more eerie.
Sources state that crime analyst, Christina Palazzolo, elaborated on the meeting with Little: “Over the course of the interview, he went through the 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,” she noted.
After the interrogation was concluded, Little had confessed to around 90 murders total. This information, alone, led investigators to believe that he was one of the most deadly serial killers in U.S. history. As of now, they have confirmed 34 of the confessions and continue to work on the rest.
Because of his age, Little’s health is in a steady decline and he knows his time is drawing to an end. This could lend to his cooperation with the authorities. They are now conducting daily interviews with him to get as accurate of descriptions as possible in order to put some cold cases to rest once and for all.
While this isn’t news that anyone would be eager to hear, it likely brings a sense of peace to the families that have been longing for answers over missing loved ones for years on end. Please be in prayer that the investigators will continue to close the loose ends of these horrific cases.
