Investigators said 78-year-old Samuel Little, who is sitting in a Texas prison, confessed to 90 murders. When in custody, Los Angeles police detectives matched his DNA to three unsolved murders between 1987 and 1989.
The FBI released this information, but the GBI and Dade County haven't heard from them and they are hoping to find out more about what other evidence FBI has.
FBI investigators say Little, a former competitive boxer, typically beat and strangled women, many of whom were already vulnerable members of the community, involved in prostitution and addicted to drugs.
The FBI said in a statement Tuesday that Samuel Little offered the deal in exchange for being moved from California State Prison in Los Angeles County, but it didn't say why he requested the transfer, where he asked to go or whether his offer was accepted.
A Texas Ranger, James Holland, traveled to California earlier this year to interview Little about the 1994 Odessa killing.
During the May 2018 interview, Little listed cities and states and told officials the number of people he murdered in each, ViCAP Crime Analyst Christina Palazzolo said. "Jackson, Mississippi - one; Cincinnati, Ohio - one; Phoenix, Arizona - three; Las Vegas, Nevada-one.' Palazzolo said", AFP reports. Little said he met that second victim in Columbus, Ohio and disposed of her body somewhere in Northern Kentucky. Though he wasn't good at remembering dates, he offered other details such as the auto he was driving at the time and even sketched drawings of his victims.
"Little chose to kill marginalized and vulnerable women who were often involved in prostitution and addicted to drugs".
"With no stab marks or bullet wounds, many of these deaths were not classified as homicides but attributed to drug overdoses, accidents or natural causes", the statement said.
To compare Little's claim that he killed about 90 over a 35-year span to well known serial killers, Ted Bundy confessed to 30 homicides and Jeffrey Dahmer killed 17. Authorities have since confirmed 34 of the killings; many more still need to be corroborated.
Little said he picked up the victim at Washington bus station and told him she was recently divorced, from the MA area and may be a mother.
"We are going through his known MO and sharing that information through the Florida Cold Case Advisory Commission", Rhodenizer said.
One of the three murders a suspected serial killer may be responsible for in Tennessee happened in the Tennessee Valley. Almost six decades after he first started breaking the law, investigators are just now beginning to unravel the true extent of Little's crimes.
Little's method of killing didn't always leave obvious signs of a homicide, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
But the absence of data on many other cases still proves to be hard. Among them are a 1977 murder in Plant City and a 1984 murder in Tampa.
A large number of the murders were also committed in the 1970s and early 1980s, before DNA profiling was common practice. "The goal now is to identify his victims and provide closure and justice in unsolved cases".
"A Jane Doe who turned up dead in an alley in New Orleans may look like an isolated event", said Fitzsimmons. That is the value of ViCAP.
