Federal Bureau of Investigation releases serial killer's drawings in a bid to identify his victims

Ector County Texas Sheriff's Office shows confessed serial killer Samuel Little. 

Little confessed to the 90 further killings past year after FBI investigators set up an interview with the killer following discovery of a case in Texas which they suspected involved Little.

Now the agency has released 16 images, which were drawn from memory, in the hope that they can find out more information and notify families. The strategy worked - both were identified.

An FBI spokesman says authorities so far have confirmed Little's role in nearly three dozen cases.

The reason, they say, is because Little tended to prey on marginalized members of society who would leave the faintest trail in their wake when they disappeared. Because there were no gunshot or knife wounds on the victims, investigators blamed accidents, natural causes or drug overdoses for the slayings.

So far investigators have managed to link Little to 36 of his claims, spanning the width of the U.S., from LA to Washington DC.

Investigators are now said to be encouraging Little to continue with his twisted artistic endeavor in the hope of bringing retrospective justice to those whose brutal deaths were once drastically overlooked.

Confessed serial killer Samuel Little told authorities his drawings are the faces of the multiple women he killed during his crime sprees that occurred all across the country from 1970 to 2005.

The drawings include details such as the color of a victim's eyes or hair or the blue headscarf she was wearing when she was abducted. He'd already been behind bars at the time, serving three life sentences for the murders of three Los Angeles women.

Another is of a black woman between 23 and 25 years old with bright red lipstick and red earrings.

One of the victims was from Prince George County, Maryland, one in West Memphis, Arkansas, and the third was from Pascagoula, Missouri.

Police have yet to link 13 of the portraits to victims or crimes. But the grim tally rose after he recalled, while being driven in December from one Texas jail to another, killing three more victims, including two in Los Angeles, the Federal Bureau of Investigation disclosed.

They're now investigating other possible links to slayings in 36 different cities, across 16 different states.

DNA testing linked him to three murders in the Los Angeles area dating back as far as 1987.

Now in poor health, Little is in custody in California, according to Ector County DA Bland.
