MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — A serial killer possibly linked to 90 murders nationwide has confessed to two here in Mobile.
This is a story you’ll see exclusively on News 5.
Reporter Mary Smith has been working on this story for several weeks and confirmed it with Mobile Police Wednesday.
Samuel Little is already serving time in California for several murders.
The case exploded earlier this month when investigators brought him to Texas, where he confessed to dozens of additional murders.
While he was in Texas, Mobile Police say they got an unexpected call from the FBI’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Program. “We sent a detective over to Texas in November to interview Samuel little. He gave information to our detective relating to two unsolved homicides in 1984 that would suggest he would be the one that committed the crimes due to the information he had was intimate to somebody that had been there that night,” said Major John Barber.
Little’s alleged crime spree spanned several states, including Alabama and Mississippi.
The murders he allegedly confessed to happened in 1984.
Those are the murders of Ida Mae Campell and Hannah Mae Bonner. Investigators say they knew each other.
News 5’s Mary Smith spoke exclusively to Bonner’s family Wednesday, who says the two victims were friends.
