Mindhunter: Who is serial killer Samuel Little? Will he be in Mindhunter season 3? | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


Mindhunter is the true-crime series based on the early days of FBI profiling. Both seasons so far are based on the true-crime book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit written by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker and follow fictional detectives Bill Tench (played by Holt McCallany) and Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) as they try to get to the bottom of America’s serial killers. Previous killers to feature int eh series include Charles Manson and Ed Kemper.

Who is serial killer Samuel Little?

Samuel Little is America’s most prolific serial killer, known as the “choke and stroke” killer.

Little has now admitted that he strangled 93 victims between 1970 and 2005 but police have only been able to verify 50 confessions.

Many of his victim’s deaths were originally ruled as overdoses, accidental or undetermined causes. Unfortunately, some victims bodies were never recovered.

In a press statement released today (Monday, October 7), the FBI has released sketches of 25 of his unnamed victims to try and get more information.

FBI’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (ViCAP) Crime Analyst Christie Palazzolo said her statement: “For many years, Samuel Little believed he would not be caught because he thought no one was accounting for his victims.

“Even though he is already in prison, the FBI believes it is important to seek justice for each victim — to close every case possible.”

More information about Samuel Little and the information appeal is available at FBI.gov.

Despite admitting to 93 killings, he has only been convicted of the murders of eight women in California between 1987 and 1989 and one woman in Texas in 1994.

His killings are believed to have taken place across 19 states over half a century.

In the 1980s he was arrested and charged with the murders of two women but the charges were dropped in 1984.

He then moved to California and later the year, he was arrested for kidnapping, beating and strangling 22-year-old Laurie Barros who survived.

In November that year, an unconscious woman was found beaten and strangled in his car. He served two and a half years for the assault on Barros and the unnamed woman.

He was released on February 1987 and moved to Los Angeles, committing more murders.

In September 2012, he was arrested at a homeless shelter in Louisville, Kentucky after authorities used DNA testing to see if he was involved in the murder’s of Carol Elford, killed on July 13, 1987; Guadalupe Apodaca, killed on September 3, 1987; and Audrey Nelson, killed on August 14, 1989.

His trial for the murders of Elford, Nelson and Apodaca began in September 2014 and he was found guilty on September 25 2014, sentenced to a life imprisoned without the possibility of parole.

A the end of last year, Little began confessing to other murders and continued to do so throughout early 2019.

On June 7, 2019, he was indicted in Hamilton County, Ohio for murdering two women killed in Cincinnati.

Will Samuel Little be in Mindhunter season 3?

At the moment, Mindhunter season three has not been given the green light by Netflix, which means it hard to predict whether Samuel Little will feature in the new series.

However, the third season of Mindhunter is looking highly possible after the show’s creator revealed plans for future runs.

Show writer Joe Penhall previously told the Metro he had a “five-season bible” for the show, so fingers crossed the plan goes ahead.

McCallany told PopCulture.com: “I don’t think anybody knows right now, in August of 2019, exactly what lies in store for Holden and Bill, and Wendy.

“We are hopeful that we will get to do the whole five seasons because the audience seems to have really responded to the show, people really like the show. And we’re very proud of the show and very excited to keep making the show.

Little may feature in the new series as he committed his crimes during the period Mindhunter is set in.

He began his murder spree in 1970, ending in 2005 and as America’s most prolific killer, he would be an interesting addition to Mindunter.

However, he was not convicted until 2014, so he may play a role like the BTK killer in the series, foreshadowing what is to come.

The BTK killer (real name Dennis Rader) was not captured by police until February 2005.

Mindhunter is streaming on Netflix now
