A serial killer, who is a suspect in at least 90 unsolved murders across the U.S., may also be responsible for a 1994 Texas cold case homicide, according to authorities.
Samuel Little, 78, already serving three consecutive life sentences in California, was extradited to Texas and recently charged with the murder of Denise Christie Brothers, 38, of Odessa, the Dallas Morning News reported.
Brothers disappeared in January 1994 from a motel parking lot and was later found about a month later strangled in another lot, according to the newspaper.

During interviews with authorities related to cold cases across the U.S. between 1970 and 2005, Little reportedly indicated he had “intimate knowledge of the crime and about the victim that was never released to the public”, Odessa police said.
While being held in jail in Wise County, Texas, Little also reportedly provided details of more than “90 murders committed in multiple states,” the Wise County Sheriff’s Office told the newspaper.
He also been interrogated by the FBI and investigators from Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Illinois, Ohio, California, Indiana, Arizona, New Mexico and South Carolina, the Sheriff’s Office reportedly said.
Little, who also goes by the name Samuel McDowell, was convicted in 2014 of slaying three California women in the 1980’s and sentenced to three life terms without the possibility of parole, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The Times reported that when he was sentenced he hurled profanities at the families of victim and denied committing the murders.
