Man who claims to have killed 90 people, indicted in decades old Smiths Grove murder case
SMITHS GROVE, Ky.- An indictment has come down in a decades-old murder case out of Smiths Grove and the man accused of the murder is an individual who has claimed to have killed 90 people.
On Thursday, a Warren County grand jury indicted Samuel Little with one count of murder in the death of Linda Sue Boards, whose body was discovered in May 1981 on a farm in Smiths Grove.
Last September, Kentucky State Police Post Three in Bowling Green was contacted in reference to a lead received via the Violent Criminal Apprehension Program, or VICAP, regarding the Board murder case.
The VICAP database identified an individual who had committed crimes in California that matched the method in which Boards was murdered.
A month later, investigators interviewed Little in Texas regarding the Smiths Grove case. Information obtained during the interview led to the case being presented to the grand jury and the subsequent indictment.
Little, who is 78 years old, is currently lodged in the Wise County, Texas Detention Center.
