A convicted murderer serving three life sentences has confessed to dozens of murders and, with more than 60 killings now linked to him, might be the most ghastly serial killer in U.S. history, according to The Washington Post.
Samuel Little, 79 and in failing health, has given a stream of confessions to a Texas Ranger, according to Ohio prosecutor, the Post reported.
"This is truly shocking," Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters told the Post. "Little is likely responsible for committing more murders than anyone else in the United States."
The number of murders might be as many as 93, according to Texas Ranger James Holland, who had gained the imprisoned Little's trust and confessions, the Post reported.
"At this point in his life, I think he's determined to make sure that his victims are found," Ector County, Texas, District Attorney Bobby Bland said, per the report. "Nothing has been proven to be false."
So far, investigators have connected more than 60 deaths to Little, according to Bland, who credited Holland for gaining Little’s trust during the investigation. Holland determined the number of victims could be as high as 93, Bland said.
Little targeted women who were drug addicts and prostitutes, punching them and strangling them, according to the FBI.
"He specifically looked for girls with a certain neck type that he liked . . . That's how twisted this guy is," Deters said, per the report.
"You know the old saying, only the good die young? This piece of garbage is 79 today."
