Samuel Little: Confessions of a Killer

Samuel Little’s Confessions: Murder Locations and Victims 

Note: The below map, list of cases, and Samuel Little’s drawings of his victims were first published November 27, 2018 in a related story. The information has been moved in its entirety to this page for ease of reference.

These incidents are either linked to victims who have not yet been identified (Jane Does) or to murders described by Samuel Little that have not yet been definitively corroborated by law enforcement (unmatched confessions). The information depicted when selecting the pinpoints on the map (also available in text form below) is based on interviews with Samuel Little; they are his confessions and recollections, and dates are approximations.

October 1, 2019 Update: The continued investigation into the confessions of Samuel Little has resulted in several changes to this map. Five cases have been removed after being confirmed by law enforcement. Two new cases have been added—one in Willoughby Hills, Ohio, and an additional case in New Orleans, Louisiana. Two previously unmatched confessions have been linked to unidentified bodies or “Jane Does.” Eight new portraits have been added. Little draws the portraits based on his memories of the victims.
