In 2018, after Texas authorities began tying Samuel Little to murders around the country, Marion County, Fla., Sheriff’s Detective Sgt. Michael Mongeluzzo joined police from several states who flew to a Texas prison, where Little was temporarily being held, in efforts to bring closure for their cold cases.

Mongeluzzo that he killed Rosie because God put him on this earth to do it.” (AP Photo/Adrian Sainz)
