We also speak with SAKI (Sexual Assault Kit Initiative) Task Force member Amy Hutsell, who has been helping to connect Samuel Little’s Georgia confessions to the state’s cold cases. 

     

    A number of the Southeastern victims discussed in this series are either Jane Does or are currently considered “unmatched confessions,” and the public’s help is needed in resolving their cases.

    Trailer: The Victims of Samuel Little

    Trailer: The Victims of Samuel Little

    In 2012, a 72-year-old man named Samuel Little was charged with three Los Angeles murders, dating back to the 1980s.  Since then, it’s become clear: he is the most prolific serial killer the United States has ever seen.  

    Roughly half his victims were living in the Southeast at the time of their murders, and many of those cases still need closure--either because the victims are Jane Does, or the confessions haven’t been matched to cases. 

    From The Fall Line comes a special limited series: The Victims of Samuel Little.  

    We’ll cover both the solved and unresolved Southeastern cases, and how you can help the victims still waiting for justice. 

    The Fall Line is created by Laurah Norton and Brooke Hargrove/Engineered and produced by Maura Currie.
