"Most Prolific" US Serial Killer Murdered 50, Thought He Would Get Away


Though investigators have exclusively confirmed his involvement in 50 of them, they consider all of Little's confessions are credible.

The FBI said it believes Little's confessions, though numerous victims' deaths were originally ruled as overdoses and several of the bodies were never found.

In a news release Sunday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said law enforcement were able to verify 50 of those confessions, with several more pending final confirmation. According to the FBI, Little targeted his victims across the country between 1970 and 2005.

"Even though he is already in prison, the Federal Bureau of Investigation believes it is important to seek justice for each victim - to close every case possible", Palazzolo says.

Little, who lived a nomadic lifestyle, claims to have killed 93 women as he crisscrossed the country over the years.

Although US serial killers tend to be white, there have been several black serial killers - including Alton Coleman, Maurey Travis and Lonnie Franklin, who was dubbed the Grim Sleeper because his crimes included a gap where he did not claim any victims. Little is now serving three life sentences on California convictions, and in 2019, received two additional sentences for 15 years to life for the murders of two women in Cincinnati.

Eventually, Little confessed to killing about 90 people. Numerous deaths weren't investigated.

As soon as there, DNA proof linked him to a few chilly circumstances, resulting in his 2014 conviction for the homicide of three ladies in Los Angeles between 1987 and 1989.

"The FBI is grateful for the Texas Rangers and state and local law enforcement partners who have worked diligently to confirm these cases", said John Selleck, assistant director of the FBI's Critical Incident Response Group, in a statement.

The FBI provided 30 drawings of some of his victims - color portraits that were drawn by Little himself in prison.
