Worst Serial Killer:  An article by NBCNews, reports that the FBI has confirmed the confession of the reputed worst serial killer in U.S. history.  The agency has verified at least 50 victims murdered by Samuel Little, surpassing the body count of the Green River Killer, Ted Bundy, and John Wayne Gacy.  While serving three life terms in a California prison for three murders, Little admitted to killing 90 other women.  According to a supporting article, he confessed to the additional killings when he was requesting to be transferred to a different prison. These crimes all took place from the years 1970-2005 and they were spread out across the country. Little was able to get away with his killings for so long because he was constantly moving from state to state and targeting sex workers or drug addicts, women who could easily disappear without a trace. Christie Palazzolo, an analyst for the FBI's violent crime Apprehension Program, states that "Even though he is already in prison, the FBI believes it is important to seek justice for each victim- to close every case possible". Due to his health and current age of 79 years old, Samuel Little will most likely spend the rest of his life in prison, the FBI is currently still trying to find out if he was possibly connected even to more murders.
