A serial killer who claims to have killed over 90 people across the country has been indicted again in connection to a 37-year-old cold case in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The cold case involves the murder of Linda Sue Boards from Smith Grove, whose body was discovered in May of 1981.

Kentucky State Police investigators traveled to Texas where Samuel Little is serving a life sentence for murders also committed in the Lone Star State.

Their interview with Little lead them to uncovering enough details and evidence to charge the 78-year-old man with murder.

The FBI says the Los Angeles Police Department has used DNA to link him to three murders there.

So far, the FBI has linked Little to other murders in Mississippi, Ohio, Arizona, and Nevada.

Samuel Little was a truck driver and is believed to have committed those murders between 1970 and 2005.

If convicted in all cases, Little would be one of the most prolific serial killers in U.S. history.
