  • Serial Killer Samuel Little has made portraits of 16 of his victims who remain unknown

Serial Killer Samuel Little has made portraits of 16 of his victims who remain unknown.

Details of the list - including the suspected gender, race, age of the victims, as well as the locations the suspected murders occurred - are based on interviews with the killer, with all but one of the unmatched victims being women. The FBI hopes that by releasing the images and details, local law enforcement agencies or the general public may be able to make a link between a woman who went missing at the time or a Jane Doe body that was found-and ultimately provide some closure for the families of the victims.

"We want to give these women their names back and their family some long-awaited answers. It's the least we can do", Buchwald added.

The strategy worked - both were identified.

Investigators are now said to be encouraging Little to continue with his twisted artistic endeavor in the hope of bringing retrospective justice to those whose brutal deaths were once drastically overlooked.

So, Texas Ranger James Holland along with two Federal Bureau of Investigation crime analysts traveled to California where Little was being held for beating and strangling three women and dumping their bodies in an alley, dumpster and a garage, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The Texas Rangers say Little to date has confessed to 90 homicides nationwide over the past four decades.

If all 90 confessions are confirmed, Little would be the most prolific known U.S. serial killer.

Little targeted marginalized and vulnerable women who were often involved in prostitution or addicted to drugs, Christina Palazzolo, a crime analyst for the FBI's Violent Criminal Apprehension Program wrote in a November FBI article.

The search was in connection with a series of unsolved murders across the country.

Then in 2014, Little was sentenced to three consecutive terms of life in prison without parole for the beating and strangulation murders of Carol Alford, 41, Audrey Nelson, 35, and 46-year-old Guadalupe Apodaca.

Holland was trained in cold cases and visited Little, gaining his trust over time, Bland said.

Samuel Little, who was indicted on charges that he murdered three women in Los Angeles in the 1980s, listens to opening statements.

Investigators have confirmed 34 of the confessed killings, authorities said in November.

In the other three cases - one from Prince George's County, Maryland, another from West Memphis, Arkansas, and the third from Pascagoula, Mississippi - police have matched one of Little's confessions to skeletal remains and corresponding case files.

CNN has reached out to EJ Leach, the attorney representing Little in the Texas case, and has not yet received a response.
