MEXICO CITY.

#Samuel #Little, the most prolific serial killer in the #United #States according to the FBI, died in #California at age 80 on #Wednesday, prison officials reported.

#Little confessed to 93 murders, mostly women, committed between 1970 and 2005, but his crime wave went unnoticed for decades.

The former boxer’s victims were mostly drug addicts and prostitutes, and in many cases the women were never identified or their deaths were not investigated.

#After #Little began naming the victims behind bars, last year the FBI confirmed #Little’s involvement in at least 50 of the deaths and described all of his other claims as “credible.”

The criminal died in the hospital early #Wednesday morning, and #Los #Angeles medical examiners have yet to determine the cause of death, the #California #Department of #Corrections said in a statement.

#Little was serving three consecutive sentences of life in prison without parole, after being incarcerated in 2014.

#Also known as #Samuel #McDowell, #Little stood 1.9m tall and typically knocked out his victims with powerful punches before strangling them, leaving no obvious signs of homicide, such as stab wounds or gunshot wounds.

#That factor, combined with the victims’ backgrounds, led to many of the deaths being attributed to drug overdoses or accidents, as well as natural causes.

#Little grew up in #Ohio, dropped out of high school and lived a “nomadic life,” stealing to buy alcohol and drugs, the FBI said.

#His criminal history began in 1956 with arrests for theft, fraud, drugs, and burglary.

#He was charged with murdering women in #Mississippi and #Florida in the early 1980s, but was not convicted.

US media reports recently said that he suffered from heart disease and diabetes.
