Samuel Little died Wednesday at the age of 80 in a prison in California.
The former boxer was sentenced to life in prison in 2014 for the murders of three women in Los Angeles, between 1987 and 1989, who were beaten and strangled to death.
In 2019, the man who is considered “the worst serial killer in history” confessed to having murdered 93 people, mostly women.
He had hand-drawn his victims whom he had killed between 1970 and 2005 in fifteen American states. Most of these deaths had gone unnoticed.
These deaths were classified as overdose, accident or without a specific cause. Some bodies have never been found. The filmed confessions of the killer who recounted the facts in detail had been broadcast on the internet.
An autopsy will be performed in the coming days to find out the causes of Samuel Little’s death.
