Samuel Little is an American serial killer, currently detained in Los Angeles County prison. He has been cooperating with authorities in determining the identities of his victims, but now the FBI is asking for help.
Little has drawn portraits of 16 of his unidentified victims. The portraits have been recreated from memory and depict the women he murdered.
On Tuesday, the FBI released the images to the public, hoping to attain clues that can lead to their identification.
People were creeped out at how well he remembered each of these faces.

Little has been linked to over 30 murder cases so far, though he claims the total might be as high as 90. The discrepancy is due to several factors.
As the portraits show, Little remembers the faces of these women in detail. However, the date and times of his murders can be off by years.
Additionally, these were women society did not treat very well. They were prostitutes, drug addicts, or trans women, all shunned by society. Because people didn’t care about them, they drew little notice when they disappeared.
The portraits have been described as haunting.
So strange and awful, these beautiful sketches of women he murdered https://t.co/GqL5V6OrRT
