Samuel Little: Most Prolific Serial Killer in US History Is Now Dead

The most prolific serial killer in US history, Samuel Little, died in prison Wednesday at age 80. LA County medical examiner’s office will determine the cause of death.

In 2018, Little confessed to killing 93 women across the nation from the 1970s through 2005. The FBI considers him credible as he knew details only the killer could know. That said, Samuel Little may have murdered more than those 93. Law officials across the nation were trying to connect him to other unsolved cases. As of last year, they had confirmed at least 50 of his murder confessions.
