FBI: Phoenix slayings may be linked to killer in Texas jail

November 29, 2018

PHOENIX (AP) — The FBI says Samuel Little, a 78-year-old man being held in a Texas jail, has confessed to killing upward of 90 women, including three in Phoenix, because he wants to be moved from a Los Angeles County prison to a lockup elsewhere.

The Arizona Republic reports the FBI said Wednesday that one of the Phoenix victims may have been a Hispanic woman in her 40s whom Little may have killed in 1988 or 1996.

The other possible victim may have been killed in 1997 and is described as a white woman possibly called “Ann.”

The description of the third victim is not detailed in a map of the killings published by the FBI.

Little is awaiting trial after being convicted in 2014 of killing three people in California in the 1980s. He’s serving three consecutive life sentences for those crimes.
