A woman found 44 years ago may have been a notorious serial killer’s victim. Police say they now know her name.
After more than four decades, Clara Birdlong's remains have been identified. Officials believe she's one of the dozens of women Samuel Little confessed to killing.
The relative said Birdlong had last been seen in Mississippi’s Leflore County, and an investigator found a woman in the county who said she remembered Birdlong.“She said Clara left Leflore County in the 70’s with an African American man who claimed to be passing through Mississippi on his way to Florida,” the news release said. “Clara was never seen or heard from again.”
Little is the prime suspect in Birdlong’s death, according to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.Before Little’s death, Versiga said the serial killer told investigators that he met the woman now believed to be Birdlong at a Mississippi bar and took her to a restaurant for a meal before strangling her and dumping her into a hole.
Little said he thought the woman worked at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula because her hands were rough and worn, according to Versiga.AdvertisementStory continues below advertisementBut Versiga said Little got some of the details wrong.

Little recalled Birdlong’s wig, Versiga said, though he did not remember her gold tooth. The man was also known for the drawings he made of dozens of his victims, which the FBI posted to aalongside tapes of Little describing women he said he killedwho had not been identified.
