America's deadliest serial killer who confessed to killing over 90 women reveals chilling details in new documentary

The confessions of a man believed to be America's deadliest serial killer, who claimed to have killed as many as 90 people, are set to be aired in an upcoming documentary.

According to The Mirror, Samuel Little will be detailing some of his horrific crimes and his motivations behind them in 'Confessions of a Serial Killer,' which will air on Channel 4 on Monday, May 27, at 9 pm.

Little was convicted in Los Angeles County in 2014 of the murders of three women — Carol Alford, 41, Audrey Nelson, 35, and Apodaca, 46 — between 1987 and 1989 and was sentenced to three life sentences without the possibility of parole. 

But beginning November 2018, Little began confessing to murdering several other women, with the FBI soon announcing that a Violent Criminal Apprehension Program had confirmed 34 of Little's confessions and was working to match the remaining confessions to known murders or suspicious deaths.

He is believed to have provided investigators details in more than 90 murders he committed between 1970 and 2005, which, if proven to be true, would make him one of the most prolific serial killers in US history. The 34 confirmed murders proves he has already surpassed Ted Bundy, who confessed to the homicides of 30 women.

Now 78 years old, Little can be heard explaining his intentions behind the murders in a disturbing taped police confession played on 'Confessions of a Serial Killer'. "I try to trace back to when I became attracted to a woman's throat," he says.

He then laughs and adds, "A lot of these women have a death wish. Yeah, they want to die. I love all of them. I can't pick a favorite, when they die, they're all favorites. They all belong to you. I'll see you in hell."


We previously reported that Little's target demographic consisted mainly of drug addicts and prostitutes, with detectives saying his modus operandi included delivering a knockout punch to his victims before strangling them while masturbating on them. He would then dump their bodies and flee town.

"I didn't take chances," he says, giving investigators hints on how he escaped capture for so long. "I didn’t have nobody with me and I pick on mother****ers that wouldn't be missed. That's why I didn’t get busted a long time ago. I didn't waste no time digging bodies. I got so crazy I wanted more. That's the curse I have got."

But even before he was convicted of the murders, Little had an extensive criminal record that saw him arrested 26 times in 11 states for crimes including theft, assault, attempted rape, fraud and attacks on government officials by 1975. 


In an attempt to get to the bottom of his confessions, the FBI released the portraits he has drawn of his victims in the hope that they can be identified and their families notified. One of those drawings, shown on 'Confessions of a Serial Killer', has a note written by Little which reads, "she is mine."
