78-year-old man may be most prolific serial killer in US history
Chris Lefkow, AFP•November 28, 2018
www.yahoo.com



Washington (AFP) - A 78-year-old drifter in prison in Texas has confessed to 90 murders and is being investigated as possibly the most prolific serial killer in US history.

Samuel Little preyed mainly on drug addicts and prostitutes during a decades-long murder spree that stretched from coast to coast, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said in a report.

Little, a 6ft 3in (1.9m) former boxer also known as Samuel McDowell, was arrested at a homeless shelter in Kentucky in 2012 and extradited to California to face drug charges.

Once there, DNA evidence linked him to three cold cases and Little was convicted in 2014 of murdering three women in Los Angeles between 1987 and 1989.

All three had been beaten and strangled.

Sentenced to life in prison, Little was transferred to Texas in connection with the investigation into another murder.

Bobby Bland, district attorney of Ector County where Little is being held, said he eventually confessed to the 1994 murder of Denise Christie Brothers in Odessa, Texas.

And after a Texas Ranger named James Holland gained his trust, Little began confessing to dozens of other murders committed between 1970 and 2005, Bland said.

FBI crime analyst Christina Palazzolo said during the course of an interview in May 2018, 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...?Palazzolo said.

A total of 90 murders in all, of which law enforcement has so far verified 34 killings.

"Little will be confirmed as one of, if not the most, prolific serial killers in US history," Bland said in a statement.

The deadliest known US serial killer is believed to be Gary Ridgway, the so-called "Green River Killer" convicted of 49 murders who is serving a life sentence in Washington state.

Imagine that. The most prolific serial killer in US history is a black guy. Who'd a thunk it?

I read the article and I'm going to not come to any conclusions. Any "journalist" who works for yahoo is suspect in my opinion.

I also know that often prisoners will give "false confessions."

They say they’ve “verified?34 of true murders, so far, and if he’s only been in jail four years it’s not like he’s had the chance to hear that many stories about killings from cell mates that he could be repeating and taking the credit for? :shrug:

This is a legitimate story. The FBI have confirmed at least 34 of the cases.

So, it is as valid as that makes it. :coolshades:

I remember when someone here said they couldn't figure out the difference between what Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump stood for.

They sure didn't hold back on that silly "conclusion".

Thanks. (I guess I should have read better. I should also stop watching so much ID (Investigation Discovery) TV.)

So is law enforcement.

So is trucking.
Or racing.
Or a motorcycle courier.
Or a Clinton informant.

So what's your point?

No, that record might belong to Kermit Gosnell, one of our_poster’s hero’s.

As soon as the criminal is a black guy, you turn on the victims.

It’s a tribal thang. Unless the black is conservative; then they have no color.

How is stating the obvious "turning on the victims"? I said absolutely nothing about them deserving their fateful encounter with this maniac. I have nothing but sympathy for them.


Get real.

I was shocked to learn that he was a black guy, though color isn't important.

What is important is that he is a total POS who may have been responsible for maybe even more than 90 deaths.
