SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The FBI has released details about six young women a convicted murderer confessed to killing while serving prison time in California.

The agency hopes the information about Curtis Dean Anderson's victims leads to their identification.

He was convicted of the 1999 kidnapping and murder of 7-year-old Xiana Fairchild in Vallejo.

FBI officials say that while serving a 301-year prison sentence in 2007, Anderson confessed to killing seven other people in California before he died, including 7-year-old Amber Swartz-Garcia of Pinole. He said the others were in their late teens or early 20s and from Marysville, Clear Lake, Oakland, Benicia and San Jose.

Anderson described one of them as going by the name "Rosie" and another as a Navajo Indian he picked up at a Benicia bar.
