Seemingly, Samuel Little is one of the most contemptible and despicable person on the planet. He is the serial killer who has confessed to killing 93 women across the United States has been indicted in Ohio for two decades-old cold case murders.
According to Ohio, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley the 78 year old Samuel Little who is currently serving a life sentence in California State Prison has confessed to killing five Ohio women.
Hitherto prosecutors have identified two of Little’s victims to be from the Cleveland area. He is being charged with four counts of aggravated murder and six counts of kidnapping.
On Friday June 7th, 2019 in a statement O’Malley said; “There are no words to describe the pure evil that exists within Samuel Little. His heinous disregard for human life is incomprehensible.”
Subsequently, sometime between May and June 1984, Little encountered 21 year old Mary Jo Peyton at a bar. They left together and he drove her to an abandoned factory where he strangled her. He disposed of her body in a basement stairwell. The following day two employees of a nearby business discovered her body.
Reportedly in August 1991, Little met 32 year old Rose Evans and offered her a ride. He strangled her and left her body in a vacant lot where she was discovered by a pedestrian.
Apparently, Little was raised in Lorain, Ohio, and subsequently was arrested in 2012 in a shelter in Kentucky, then extradited to California on a narcotics charge.
Pursuant to him being extradited to California Los Angeles police obtained a DNA match to Little on three unsolved murders in the area in 1987 and 1989 and was charged with three counts of murder. In 2014, he was sentenced to three consecutive life sentences without parole. This man is a monster. He is not worthy of life.
Robbery is the crime of taking or attempting to take anything of value by force, threat of force, or by putting the victim in fear. According to common law, robbery is defined as taking the property of another, with the intent to permanently deprive the person of that property, by means of force or fear; that is, it is a larceny or theft accomplished by an assault.
Robbery is always a felony in jurisdictions that distinguish between the two. Samuel Little has robbed these 93 women of their God Given Life. The life of any person is God’s gift and property to that individual. No man has the right to deny or take that person’s life. It is exceedingly wrong!
Moreover, as Little was awaiting trial in Los Angeles, authorities in at least nine other states began scouring cold case files to see if Little may be connected. Then in May, Little opened up about his other misdeeds in exchange for a prison transfer. He went through each city and state and told authorities the number of people he killed in each location.
Many of those Little claims to have killed in 16 states from 1970 to 2005 haven’t been identified or linked to the killer, making it hard for law enforcement to verify his claims or know whether they are cold cases or people whose bodies have never been found.
Reportedly, earlier this year, the FBI released 16 ominous and eerily detailed portraits that Little drew of people, suspected of being his victims, from prison in Texas. They hope the drawings will help identify his victims and solve more cold cases.
According to O’Malley, more than half of his alleged murders have been confirmed. Presently, investigators are working to identify a third woman he killed in the Cleveland area. Prosecutors say a warrant has been issued for his arrest and he faces another life sentence.
