A convicted serial killer in Texas may be linked to 90 other cases, according to investigators. 30 of those 90 cases have already been confirmed by law enforcement.

Samuel Little is serving a life sentence for three murders in California. He was extradited to Texas earlier this year to face charges of killing Denise Brothers in Odessa in 1994.

Little, 78, has provided investigators details on a “multitude” of murders he may have committed from 1970 to 2005 in Texas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Illinois, Ohio, California, Indiana, Arizona, New Mexico and South Carolina, according to the Wise County Sheriff’s Office. Little is currently incarcerated at the office’s jail.

One prosecutor says victims’ families may finally get some justice.

“I always feel like justice can be delayed but it doesn’t necessarily mean it can be denied,” Bobby Bland, Ector County District Attorney, said. “And in this case, there are people all over this country that haven’t had answers, haven’t had justice, but now they will. So even tough it was delayed, it will not be denied.”

If convicted in all cases, the 78-year-old would be one of the most prolific serial killers in US history.

Little has a court appearance on Nov. 26.
