FBI Releases Handwritten Notes From Israel Keyes


by Associated Press

ANCHORAGE - The FBI has released handwritten notes found beneath the body of confessed Alaska serial killer Israel Keyes, but says the writings offer no investigative clues or names of victims.
Keyes died Dec. 2 in an Anchorage jail cell after he slit his wrist with the blade of a disposable razor that was embedded in a pencil. He also strangled himself with a bedsheet.
He was awaiting trial in the 2012 slaying of an 18-year-old Anchorage barista. Keyes confessed to killings in Alaska and Vermont and alluded to other possible victims in other states.
FBI special agent Mary Rook says Keyes' notes were written on a yellow legal pad. They were too bloody to read immediately but were sent to the FBI laboratory in Virginia and restored.
The notes appear to include poetry and about violence and deception.
