Samuel Little: She was pretty. Light skinned, brown, honey-colored skin. And she was about 5…she was tall…she was tall for a woman. About 5’8,” 5’9.” And beautiful shape. And uh, friendly.
James Holland, Texas Ranger: And how much do you think she weighed?
Little: Uh, she had a beautiful body on her, a beautiful 150. Well put together.
Holland: And, uh, how old do you think she was?
Little: She was about 30.
Holland: OK, and she’s a black female?
Holland: And tell me where you met her.
Little: I met her in a nightclub in New Orleans. Her and her sister, two, she had two sisters. Her youngest sister was having a birthday party. Her sister was dancing with this guy on the floor. And when I come in, the girl that I was with offered to dance with me. And while were dancing, she says, “You want to go riding after this, you know, after this party’s over?” We walked outside and she looked and seen my car, that Lincoln. She said, “Woo, that’s a beautiful car, too.” So she had me arm in arm, walking to the car. We got in. We stopped at a gas station. We was on Highway 10, and uh, going toward Slidell. I seen the sign that said Little Woods. So I cut off. I took off the exit. And we went and that, sure enough, was a road leading me into the woods. And we went in and park. So we finally got to where we were going, and it was by a bayou, a river, a little water thing. The big, they had a machine out there in that little river.
Little: Dredging. I grabbed her by the legs and pulled her to the water. That’s the only one that I ever killed by drowning.
Holland: Describe the location where she’s left
Little: OK. I left her with her head still there in the water. Half her body under water, and the thighs and legs on the bank.
