Samuel Little Los Angeles police officials said they plan to comb through scores of old unsolved murders to see if a reputed 72-year-old serial killer carried out slayings in the city beyond the three women he is suspected of killing in the 1980s.

Samuel Little, who authorities allege also killed women inĀ Florida and Mississippi, currently is being held at California’s Wasco state prison. He was charged Monday and is expected to return to Los Angeles for arraignment this week on the counts of murder with special circumstances.

LAPD’s cold case homicide detectives now plan to take a methodical look at evidence from scores of unsolved murder and death cases dating back to the 1980s and early 1990s to determine whether Little may have been involved.
