While in jail, Little confessed to murdering 93 people through 19 states within 35 years. He kept homemade drawings of multiple victims.
He openly confessed to a Texas Ranger by giving detailed descriptions of the victims and the murders. He has not been clear about exact dates of the murders.
Out of the 93 confessed murders, 50 have been verified by the FBI. They are now seeking the public's help with identifying the rest of his victims that he had strangled between 1970 and 2005. They believe all of his confessions to be credible.
