Memphis man believes serial killer’s sketch shows his mom


A Tennessee man says a confessed serial killer’s sketch solves the mystery as to who killed his mother more than two decades ago.

The last time Anthony Jones saw his mother was Christmas eve 1996, when he was 15 years old.

“She was like, `I love you son.` I was like, `yea.` She said, `I`m gonna see you for Christmas tomorrow.` I`m like, `yes ma`am, I`ll see you tomorrow.` Next day comes, nobody heard from my mama,” explained Anthony Jones. 

Nearly two weeks later Priscilla Baxter-Jones was found dead in the Mississippi River.

The 36-year-old prostitute had been raped, stabbed and strangled.

A sketch of a woman drawn by serial killer Samuel Little, who he says he murdered in Memphis during the same time frame is now a possible ending to this mystery. 

Memphis police say they are now investigating whether the woman in the sketch is, in fact, Anthony Jones’ mother.

However, investigators say, at this point, they have found no evidence that Samuel Little stabbed any of his victims.
