Case

In 2018, Samuel Little confessed to killing a woman in Las Vegas in 1993. As he was driving through Las Vegas to get to Los Angeles, California, he met the victim at Owens Avenue or Jackson Street, the predominantly area of Las Vegas where blacks and African Americans lived. He believed she was a drug addict and a prostitute because otherwise "she wouldn't have been out there". He also remembered meeting her son, a black male of 19-23 years of age. They drove to a motel and he strangled her to death. He then placed her in his car, a 1978 yellow Cadillac Eldorado, and drove to the outskirts of Las Vegas on Highway 95 (the Veterans Memorial Highway) towards Searchlight, Nevada. He then pulled off a remote road and rolled the victim down the slope. He tossed her clothes further down the road.

Between 1970-2005, Little killed up to 90 women who were involved in drugs or prostitution. He has been convicted of eight murders in three states and linked to sixty-one additional murders. While this victim's body has not been recovered or confirmed, all of Little's confessions are considered credible. The investigation into Little's crimes are ongoing.
