America's Deadliest Serial Killer Samuel Little Has Died Aged 80

America's Deadliest Serial Killer Samuel Little Has Died Aged 80

A man the FBI believe to be the deadliest serial killer in US history has died in hospital in California aged 80.

Samuel Little had been serving three consecutive life sentences for the murders of three women in Los Angeles County in the 1980s.

However, while inside he confessed to killing 93 people.

Little was jailed in September 2014 after DNA evidence tied him to the murders.

In 2018, he was interviewed from his cell by Texas Ranger James Holland and it was then he began to confess to more murders.

Across hours of interviews, Little went on to say he had strangled dozens of people right across America from 1970 and 2005 - he also claimed to have drown one of his victims.

He even provided paintings and sketches of his victims, including their names when he could remember them as well as giving details such as the year and location.

The FBI have since verified more than 50 of his 93 confessions and say he is most prolific serial killer on US records.

Others are still being investigated to confirm their validity.

Speaking on 60 Minutes in 2019, Holland said: "Nothing he's ever said has been proven to be wrong or false."

Little mainly targeted vulnerable women, such as drug addicts and prostitutes, meaning his vile crimes often went unreported in the media and in some cases were not even ruled to be murders.

According to Little he chose these people as he believed they wouldn't have many family or friends left behind looking for them.

Holland has previously said Little is a 'sociopath' and a 'genius', and says the killer never gave a reason for why he did what he did.

He once told Holland: "It was like drugs. I came to like it."

Little told 60 Minutes he had decided to open up about his crimes to try and exonerate people who had been wrongly convicted for something he did.

He said: "I say if I can help get somebody out of jail, you know, then God might smile a little bit more on me."

Little said his last killing was in 2005.

In the chilling interview he said: "I don't think there was another person who did what I liked to do.

"I think I'm the only one in the world. And that's not an honour, that is a curse."

He managed to evade cops - although had served sentences for unrelated crimes - until he was arrested on drug charges in 2012.

After his arrest his DNA linked him to three murders in California and his eventual incarceration.

In a statement the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said he had been jailed at Lancaster, California, north of Los Angeles, but died early yesterday morning at a hospital outside the prison.

An official cause of death has not yet been announced.
