The FBI has verified at least 50 murders connected to Samuel Little, outnumbering the crimes of the Green River Killer, Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy.
Little has confessed to 93 murders and after the FBI verified that 50 of those confessions were true, they believe that Little is telling the truth about all 93 murders. The 93 murders are said to have taken place over a 35-year span and the FBI is looking for information on identifying the missing 43 victims.
The 79-year-old inmate was already serving three consecutive life sentences in California when he confessed to another 90 killings last year.
Gary Ridgway, dubbed the Green River Killer, was convicted of 49 murders and confessed to about 20 more. Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy each murdered upwards of 30 people, but Bundy was suspected of more.
For many years, Samuel Little believed he would not be caught because he thought no one was accounting for his victims,” Christie Palazzolo, a ViCAP (FBI’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Program) analyst, said. “Even though he is already in prison, the FBI believes it is important to seek justice for each victim — to close every case possible.
Little has drawn various portraits (like the one below) of the women in which have not been identified as victims. The FBI has shared those images on the government website, along with the detailed confession of each by Little. The confessions are very detailed and explain what year, when and where the murders took place. The FBI is hoping that this will bring in leads and help garner closure for many families out there.
