Convicted murderer says he killed 90 people, claims 1975 Knoxville murder


A serial killer’s string of murders may have touched Knoxville.

This after a stunning confession revealed by the FBI by a man in prison who says he has committed at least 90 murders.

The FBI looking into Samuel Little after DNA matched him to three unsolved murders from the 1980s. He is currently serving a life sentence for strangling three women in California.

During an interview in May, the FBI says Little confessed to murder after murder and listed a string of cities. Investigators are now trying to match little’s confessions with crimes.

One of the crimes described by Little that still hasn’t been corroborated is a 1975 murder case of a 25-year-old woman here in Knoxville.

We’ll keep you posted on this investigation.
