This week the FBI named a 79-year-old man the most prolific serial killer in US history.
So far Samuel Little has confessed 93 murders, which lasted for decades and in numerous states.
It has been almost 18 months since Little began to confess the murders inside a California prison, describing each victim and killing in great detail.
He also designed colorful portraits of dozens of women he killed.
Investigators believe that all his confessions are credible and have so far been able to verify over 50 of the murders.

However, some are still unconfirmed because many of Little's victims were originally ruled by overdoses or bodies were never found.
The FBI published a series of interviews with the 79-year-old in which he describes his crimes in the hope that someone will recognize the victim.
The murders took place between 1970 and 2005, with Little saying he strangled all the victims except a woman.
Dressed in his blue prison clothes and a gray cap, Little described a woman he met in Louisiana in 1982 with Texas ranger James Holland.
"She was pretty. Light skin, brown, honey-colored. And it was high for a woman. About 5'8," 5'9 ". And beautiful shape. And uh, friendly," he said in the confession video.
"He had a beautiful body on her, a beautiful 150. Well put together."
He said the woman was about 30 years old and remembers that she was wearing a nice dress with buttons on the front.
He met at a New Orleans nightclub while he was out celebrating his younger sister's birthday.
"His sister was dancing with this boy on the floor. And when I enter, the girl I offered to offer to dance with me, "said Little.
"And while we dance, she says," Do you want to ride after this, you know, after this party is over? "We came out and she looked and saw my car, that Lincoln. She said," Woo, this is also a beautiful car. "
The couple got into the car and led the woman towards an exit from the highway called Little Woods which led them along a dirt road near a canal that was being dredged.
Little parked the car and it was then that he attacked.
"I grabbed her by the legs and pulled her into the water. It's the only one I've ever drowned, "he said.
"I left my head still there in the water. Half of his body water and thighs and legs on the shore. "
This woman is just one of many victims yet to be identified, with Little believed to be responsible for more murders of Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy and Jeffrey Dahmer put together.
THINKING THAT IT WOULD NEVER CAUSE
He often preyed on prostitutes and drug addicts, with many of his black victims like him, and for decades he believed he would never be captured.
His killing method combined with his choice of victims made it difficult to connect Little to the crimes.
The former boxer often threw a knockout punch to women and then strangled them while he masturbated.
He would then unload their bodies and leave the city soon after.
In 2012 he was arrested and extradited to California with the narcotics charge. The Los Angeles police department obtained the DNA that linked Little to three unsolved murders in 1987 and 1989.
In 2014 he was charged with three counts of murder and sentenced to three consecutive sentences without parole.
After being linked to the three murders, a full background survey found an alarming model that linked him to dozens more.
But it wasn't until May 2018 when Ranger Holland traveled from Texas to interview Little California who started confessing.
At the time Little was trying to be transferred to another prison, so in exchange for his conversation he was transferred to a prison in Texas, where Holland continued to conduct almost daily interviews.
He claimed to have killed in 19 states. The largest concentrations of homicides took place in Florida and California, he said, with about twenty people in Los Angeles alone.
The small case was recently published in the United States 60 minutes, where he was shown laughing as he described one of his killings in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
"(She) had deer teeth. He had a gap between his teeth, that's how it was, "said Little, smiling and chuckling.
"You know he's fighting for his life and I'm fighting for my pleasure."
He also claimed that the woman was laughing as he strangled her.
It was not the only time Little broke into a smile when he talked about his victims, in another interview he seemed to smile when Mr. Holland asked him about a woman named Marianne.
"It was what you call transgender today," said Little.
He said he met Marianne in a bar in Florida and offered to take her to the store before driving her along a highway and strangling her in someone's driveway.
Some of his other confessions included the collection of a 25-year-old "hippie type" girl outside a Kentucky strip club in 1984.
He described driving her on a dirt road to a hill where he strangled her in the back of his car.
And in a case from Florida in the 70s, Little remembered the sundresses and the flowered necklace worn by the victim, and the way he played there before choking her to death.
In the 60-minute interview, Holland said he could tell when Little was viewing a particular crime.
"With Sammy, there are indications of visualization, when he is thinking about a crime scene," said Holland.
"He will start caressing his face. And while he is starting to imagine a victim, you will see him looking out and up.
"And you can say he has this rotating carousel of victims, and he's just turning, and he's waiting for him to stop on what he wants to talk about."
Little is now in a wheelchair and suffers from diabetes and heart disease and spends his days telling his crimes.
