Late one night in October 1984, San Diego police on the lookout for a rapist came upon a horrifying scene: In an isolated lot, a man emerged from a Ford Thunderbird, zipping up his pants. In the back seat, a woman lay covered in blood, so badly beaten she appeared to be dead. Caught in the act, the man was arrested and charged with sexual assault, kidnapping and attempted murder. The woman survived and testified against him. Police and prosecutors thought he would be locked up for years. They were wrong. The man, Samuel Little, is now believed to be the deadliest serial killer in US history, having confessed to killing 93 people, virtually all of them women, over four decades in 19 states. So far, officials have positively identified more than 50 of them. Although he was arrested dozens of times and linked to at least eight sexual assaults, attempted murders or killings, Little repeatedly managed to slip through the cracks of the justice system, usually benefiting from the perceived unreliability of his victims.
