In the United States, at the age of 80, Samuel Little died, who, according to authorities, was the most prolific assassin in the country’s history. This was reported by the Associated Press with reference to representatives of the Office for the Execution of Sentences.
According to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the inmate had diabetes. Little also had heart problems. Department spokesman Vicki Waters told the agency that there were no signs of violent death on the prisoner’s body.
Little was sentenced to life in prison in 2014. While he was in prison, law enforcement agencies managed to prove his involvement in 60 murders. The prisoner himself admitted that he had about 90 victims on his account. Most of those killed were women, many of whom were involved in prostitution, the Associated Press reports.
In 2019, the FBI named Samuel Little the “highest scoring” serial killer in US history.
