A former Vallejo man convicted of child killings just may be a serial killer.

Only the public can figure it out.

The FBI is asking the public to help identify more possible victims of Curtis Dean Anderson, who died in prison in 2007, according to the Vallejo Times-Herald.

Two of his known victims were children from Vallejo, but Anderson may have killed more, authorities said. He claimed to have done so, during a five-and-a-half hour interview given shortly before his death, the newspaper reported.

Anderson was convicted of killing Xiana Fairchild, 7, in 1999, and Midsi Sanchez, 8, eight months later, the newspaper reportd.

He may also have killed "at least six more victims," the newspaper reported, including Pinole resident Amber Swartz-Garcia, 7.

The FBI is hoping to validate the veracity of Anderson's claims and give "closure" to families of victims.

The FBI has only descriptions to work off of, the newspaper reported: one victim Anderson described as a "black Latina" named Rosie, who was killed in 1997.

"The FBI urges anyone with information on the identities of any of the alleged victims to call the FBI tip line, at 800-225-5324," the newspaper reported.
