These incidents are either linked to victims who have not yet been identified (Jane Does) or to murders described by Samuel Little that have not yet been definitively corroborated by law enforcement (unmatched confessions). The information depicted when selecting the pinpoints on the map (also available in text form below) is based on interviews with Samuel Little; they are his confessions and recollections, and dates are approximations.

October 1, 2019 Update: The continued investigation into the confessions of Samuel Little has resulted in several changes to this map. Five cases have been removed after being confirmed by law enforcement. Two new cases have been added—one in Willoughby Hills, Ohio, and an additional case in New Orleans, Louisiana. Two previously unmatched confessions have been linked to unidentified bodies or “Jane Does.” Eight new portraits have been added. Little draws the portraits based on his memories of the victims.

April 1, 2019 Update: Ten additional recent drawings by Samuel Little based on his memories of his victims have been added to the corresponding map pinpoints and in the text below. One of the original 16 images has been replaced.

February 12, 2019 Update: Since this information was first published on November 27, 2018, eight cases have been removed from this map after being confirmed or matched to open cases, and one formerly unmatched confession has been matched to a Jane Doe. Sixteen recentdrawings by Samuel Little based on his memories of his victims have also been added to the corresponding map pinpoints and in the text below.
