The FBI has just posted videos of confessions of the 79-year-old killer who recounts his 93 murders. Glazing.
A murderous journey of more than thirty years and nearly 100 victims. The United States has probably found the worst serial killer in their history: Samuel Little, 79, confessed to murdering 93 people, with the Federal Police (FBI) confirming 50 of these murders.
Most of the victims of Samuel Little, who acted between the years 1970 and 2005 in about fifteen states, are women, especially prostitutes or drug users, rather black or Hispanic. Samuel Little has been serving a life sentence since 2014, when he was convicted and sentenced for three murders. But his record seems to be much more terrible.
“For years, Samuel Little thought he could not be caught because he thought no one cared about his victims,” said Christie Palazzolo, an FBI criminal analyst.“Even though he is already in jail, the FBI believes it is important to do justice to each of the victims, to close all possible cases. “
The police believe that all of Little’s confessions are credible and put on line a site on which we can see the killer’s filmed cold confessions that tell the murders for which the victims have not yet been identified.
“Many of these deaths were originally classified as overdoses or accidental or no-cause deaths. Some bodies have never been found, “ says the FBI on the website in question.
The former boxer, also known as Samuel McDowell, was arrested for the first time in 2012 at a homeless shelter in Kentucky. He had been extradited to California as part of a drug case.
Once there, traces of DNA allowed the authorities to make the connection with three unresolved cases, these famous cold cases , which led to the conviction in 2014 for the murders of three women in Los Angeles between 1987 and 1989.
Samuel Little killed his victims with heavy blows or strangled them, before abandoning their bodies on a roadside, below a cliff or in a dump.
The septuagenarian remembers, without emotion but with great precision of his victims, their name (Alice, Mary-Ann, Linda …), their age, places and circumstances of the crimes. But it is very vague on the dates, which complicates the checks.
“I can do what I want”
Michael Mongeluzzo, a Florida police officer who asked him about his confession about the death of a young woman in that state in 1982, told the New York Times last year. :“It’s scary how clear his memories are after all his years. He remembers names, faces. “
During their exchanges , the policeman asked him how he managed to escape for so long to justice. “I can go to my world and do what I want” said Samuel Little, referring to inner-city neighborhoods where there are many unresolved murders.
His macabre addition amounts to 93 deaths. Gary Ridgway hitherto held the sinister record of the serial killer sentenced for the largest number of murders in the United States with 90 victims. This man also killed prostitutes or runaways in the 1980s and 1990s in Washington State. He was convicted of 49 of these killings and confessed 71, but is linked to about 20 other disappearances.
