Israel Keyes showed no remorse when describing in lurid detail how he kidnapped and strangled an 18 year-old girl, and then demanded payment for her freedom, pretending that the victim was still alive. Prosecutors questioned him and were amazed at his attitude. He seemed enthusiastic, lively and eager to tell the story.
Keyes, after confessing that he murdered Samantha Koenig, told prosecutors that he used Google Maps to pinpoint the precise location of a lake in which he threw the mutilated remains of the body of the girl after he went fishing. He spoke of being "two different people at the same time" for 14 years.
Now the confessed serial killer is dead thanks to a razor that was issued to him, which he used to commit suicide. According to a Feb. 13 Washington Post report, Israel Keyes was mistakenly issued the razor he used to kill himself.
Furthermore, a report released on Wednesday by the Alaska Department of Corrections also said the razor has not been located.
The Washington Post reports that....
"The security lapse occurred when Keyes was the focus of heightened security after earlier being found with a makeshift handcuff key, the report states. He also was segregated from other inmates."
Keyes’ dead body was discovered in his jail cell on Dec. 2, which was just two months before he was scheduled to go to trial for the 2012 murder of 18-year-old Samantha Koenig.
The father of the murdered teenager, James Koenig, recently stated that he doesn't believe the killer was mistakenly issued the razor. He told media sources,
“I don’t think it was mistaken at all,” he said. “How do you mistakenly give someone in segregation a real razor blade?”
