LUBBOCK, Texas — Samuel Little, America’s most prolific serial killer with nearly 60 confirmed victims, has died, The Associated Press reported. He was 80.
Among his victims was a woman in Lubbock – Bobbie Fields-Wilson, age 37 at the time, in 1993. Her body was found in a field near East 14th Street and Keel Avenue.
In Lubbock, Little also faced a 2006 charge of shoplifting. He was ordered to spend 14 days in jail for taking, according to a police report, a knife and a DVD from a Walmart location.
Little confessed to more than 90 murders nationwide. Not all them were confirmed by law enforcement.
Little, who had diabetes, heart trouble and other ailments, died Wednesday at a California hospital. He was serving a life sentence for multiple counts of murder.
California corrections department spokeswoman Vicky Waters said there was no sign of foul play, and his cause of death will be determined by a coroner.
