Little who has claimed responsibility for more than 90 murders throughout the United States over several years, confessed to committing the two, now Allen County Police Cold Case Homicides in late October of 1980 in which he strangled two women in separate incidents the same night.
Little stated he picked up both women near the area of Maumee and Division Streets in Fort Wayne, at different times on the same night in late October 1980.
Police say Little gave details of strangling both women while they were in his vehicle and then disposed of their bodies in separate areas of rural Allen County.
The victims Little confessed to killing were identified as 18-year-old Valeria Boyd, and 31-year-old Mary Ann Porter of Fort Wayne.
Both were reported missing by family members to the Fort Wayne Police in late October 1980.
On Nov. 4, 1980 a worker called Allen County Police saying he found a female body, who was identified as Valeria Boyd, in a field in the 14000 block of Conners Road in southern Allen County.
That person was later identified as victim Valeria Boyd.
The investigation by police was unable to identify any viable suspects regarding Boyd’s death and the investigation eventually turned into a cold case homicide.
On Dec. 13, 1980 another female body was reported to be found off of the roadway in the 4600 block of West Wallen Road in northern Allen County.
That person was later identified as Mary Ann Porter and subsequent investigation was also unable to identify any viable suspects for her death. Miss Porter’s investigation also eventually became a cold case homicide.
On Sept. 25, 2018, Texas Ranger James Holland interviewed Samuel Little and facts of numerous murders throughout the United States were brought forth by Little.
Detectives say Little provided details of several murders, which led to the Allen County Police being notified by the FBI about the killings of Boyd and Porter.
Detectives from Allen County Police interviewed Little in Texas where Little gave them information about both killings.
Both investigations were passed along to the Allen County Prosecutors Office for follow up.
Samuel Little is currently in a California state prison where he is serving several life sentences for his confessed murders throughout the country.
