Samuel Little, the man the FBI has called the most prolific serial killer in the history of the United States has died.

The 80-year-old convict's cause of death has not yet been determined.

In 2018, he confessed to 93 murders over more than three decades and has been in jail since 2014 for the murders of three women he strangled.

He confessed to the other murders under questioning by Ranger James Holland, the story of those confessions was told by '60 Minutes' in October 2019.

"Probably be numerous people who are- been convicted and sent to penitentiary on my behalf," Little told "60 Minutes" when asked why he confessed to the murders.

"I say, if I can help get somebody out of jail, you know, God might smile a little bit more on me."

He told authorities that he targeted prostitutes, drug addicts and other women on the fringes he believes cops wouldn't work too hard to investigate.
