FBI: Israel Keyes a 'force of pure evil working at random' .
Posted on December 2, 2012 at 4:46 PM

So far, "there's no indication that he was lying," FBI spokesman Eric Gonzalez said, adding that Keyes' DNA has been put in an FBI database available for other law enforcement agencies to use in their own investigations.

Officials believe there are more victims in other states, but acknowledge that they may never know who they were.

"We're going to continue to run down leads and continue our efforts to identify his victims so we can bring some closure to the families," said Mary Rook, the FBI supervisor in Alaska.

 ::snipping2::

Keyes previously lived in Washington state before moving to Alaska in 2007 to start a construction business. He also owned property in upstate New York, near the Canadian border.

Ayn Dietrich, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Seattle, said agents are reviewing unsolved murders across the state to determine whether Keyes might have been responsible for any of them.

The FBI has consulted with behavior specialists to develop insight into Keyes' personality. Their analysis is incomplete.

But they know he was a loner who didn't have a clear pattern in selecting victims. They varied in gender and age, from Koenig to the Curriers. Money didn't seem to be a driving concern.

The Currier case: A study in secrecy
 Currier case investigation collided with public's right to know
 10:39 PM, Dec 4, 2012

 ::snipping2::

He noted to the authorities that his killings had received little attention from the media and from law enforcement, including one instance in which a death he claimed responsibility for had been officially ruled an accident, not a murder, according to the FBI. He became a voracious consumer of news about the Currier and Koenig murders, yet also demanded that investigators release no information connecting him to the Vermont slayings. Otherwise, he threatened, he would stop cooperating in the unsolved homicides.

Alaska Serial Killer Committed Suicide With Hidden Razor and Bedding
December 5, 2012
(2 pages)

Serial killer Israel Keyes committed suicide in his Alaska jail cell by embedding a disposable razor blade into a pencil and slitting his wrist and using bedding material to strangle himself, the FBI said today.

Keyes, 34, left behind "crumpled, blood soaked paper" with writing on the pages.

Keyes' death came as he was slowly confessing to a string of methodically planned murders that spanned the country. He had admitted to eight murders at the time of his suicide, but had yet to tell investigators the identities of all his victims and left police wondering how many more victims there may have been.

The suicide occurred while Keyes was locked alone in a cell after 9:30 p.m. on Dec. 1. His body was discovered the next morning at 5:57 a.m., the FBI said.

He used a weapon he had apparently constructed by embedding a blade from a disposable razor into a pencil. He slashed his left wrist with the razor, and then used a strip of bedding to strangle himself.

"There is no indication of any criminal involvement from other persons," according to the FBI in Anchorage. "Pages of crumpled, blood soaked paper that appeared to have writing on them were recovered from the cell."

The papers have been handed over to the FBI for laboratory processing.

Israel Keyes stashed 'kill kit' in Woodside Natural Area in Essex in 2009
 
Serial killer dug up weapons cache in 2011 and used items in Currier slayings, FBI says
 9:10 PM, Dec 6, 2012   |
 ::snipping2::

 ::snipping2::
In Essex, Keyes buried a five-gallon orange bucket filled with weapons parts, ammunition, fasteners, wires and a flashlight, among other supplies. Keyes hid the cache in a remote corner of the Woodside Natural Area, south and down a steep embankment from the intersection of Susie Wilson Road and Vermont 15.
 ::snipping2::
Police said Keyes returned briefly to that site after murdering the Curriers, a couple in their 50s, in the early morning of June 9, 2011. He disposed of a shovel that he used to dig up the murder kit, but kept the bucket and its contents with him. The flooding two months later helped conceal the hole, and the shovel has never been found, police said.

The bodies of Bill and Lorraine Currier were left in the basement of an abandoned farmhouse at 32 Upper Main St. in Essex that was torn down in October 2011. The debris was trucked to the large landfill in Coventry, where an 11-week search took place this spring and summer, but their bodies have not been recovered.

The Talking Dead - Serial Killer Israel Keyes' Defense Team Still on the Case
January 8, 2013

ANCHORAGE - It has been more than a month since confessed serial killer Israel Keyes committed suicide in an Anchorage jail cell, yet Keyes' legal team is still fighting on his behalf.
 ::snipping2::
Although federal prosecutors went through the formality of dismissing charges against Keyes in the wake of his suicide, the defense lawyers are still active.
This comes to light because of a motion filed by the online newspaper Alaska Dispatch.
The Dispatch has moved in U.S. District Court to have all records in the Keyes case unsealed for public inspection.
In response, Keyes' lawyers -- a federal public defender based in Anchorage and a two-person team from a Seattle law firm -- have filed a motion asking for a delay in the release of any information.
 ::snipping2::
Frank Russo of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Anchorage said he does not know why Keyes' lawyers are still involved in the case, something the likes of which he said he's never seen before.
And Russo said by Thursday he expects to file a motion with the court asking for dismissal of their request on behalf of Keyes.
And of course one issue here is the federal tax dollars being expended on behalf of a dead man who confessed to killing at least 11 people.
 ::snipping2::
Meanwhile, the blood-soaked note that was found with Keyes' body has been analyzed by the FBI in Quantico, Virginia, and the message has been deciphered.
Local FBI spokesman Eric Gonzalez said the agency is likely to release the contents this week or next

Israel Keyes: In Plane Sight
Authorities didn't realize they had a jet-setting serial killer on their hands until an Anchorage inmate started talking.

Serial killer takes secrets to his grave, but search for his unknown victims goes on
January 26, 2013

 ::snipping2::
In 40 hours of interviews over eight months, Keyes talked of many killings; authorities believe there were nearly a dozen. He traveled from Vermont to Alaska hunting for victims. He said he buried "murder kits" around the country so they would be readily accessible. These caches containing guns, zip ties and other supplies used to dispose of bodies were found in Alaska and New York.
 ::snipping2::n December, he slashed his left wrist and strangled himself with a sheet in his jail cell. He left two pages of bloodstained writings. And many questions.

Investigators are now left searching for answers, but they face a daunting task: They're convinced the 34-year-old Keyes was a serial killer; they've verified many details he provided. But they have a puzzle that spans the U.S. and dips into Mexico and Canada and the one person who held the missing pieces is dead. FBI agents on opposite ends of the country, joined by others, are working the case, hoping a timeline will offer clues to his grisly odyssey.
 ::snipping2::
The FBI is seeking the public's help. On Jan. 16, a Dallas bureau press release stated Keyes was "believed to have committed multiple kidnappings and murders" across the country starting in 2001. It's looking for anyone who had contact with him on Feb. 12-16, 2012, when he was believed to be in various Texas cities.

More appeals are expected in other places.

FBI agents in Seattle and in Albany, N.Y., also are working with state and local authorities to try to verify tips from people who reported seeing Keyes. Unsolved homicides are being checked, too, to determine if Keyes was in the area at the time.

Confessed serial killer Israel Keyes mistakenly given razor before suicide, report says
February 13, 2013

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Confessed serial killer Israel Keyes was mistakenly issued a razor before he committed suicide, according to a report released Wednesday by the Alaska Department of Corrections that also said "it appears that razor was not retrieved."
Keyes' body was found in his jail cell on Dec. 2, months before he was to have gone on trial for the 2012 slaying of 18-year-old Anchorage barista Samantha Koenig.

Though Keyes' death was classified a suicide, the exact cause is unknown pending autopsy results, the report says.

Before he died, Keyes told investigators he had killed Koenig and at least seven other people across the country, including Bill and Lorraine Currier of Essex, Vt. Investigators believe there could be more victims in Washington, Oregon and Texas.

The state had previously denied an open records request from The Associated Press for details of events surrounding Keyes' death. Corrections officials didn't immediately return phone calls from the AP Wednesday.

Keyes was in state custody in Anchorage because there are no federal prisons in Alaska.
