    Samuel Little is being called the most prolific serial killer in U.S. history after authorities verified more than half of the 93 murders he's confessed to during a 35-year span.

    The 79-year-old Texas inmate was already serving three consecutive life sentences when he confessed to another 90 killings last year, NBC News reported.
