FILE - This undated handout photo provided by the Anchorage Police Department shows Israel Keyes. Keyes, charged in the death of an Alaska barista, has killed himself, and authorities say he was linked to at least seven other possible slayings in three other states. Keyes was found dead in his Anchorage jail cell Sunday, Dec. 2, 2012. Officials say it was a suicide.

Suspected serial killer Israel Keyes stashed weapons and other items in Eagle River for use in future criminal acts, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigations.

Keyes — who Anchorage Police said earlier this year kidnapped and killed Anchorage barista Samantha Koenig, 18 — died of an apparent suicide Sunday, Dec. 2 at the Anchorage Jail. Following his death, the FBI said Keyes had admitted to them he killed numerous people across the country, financing his killing spree with bank robberies.

The FBI said Monday, Dec. 3 it believes Keyes was a serial killer responsible for at least eight deaths nationwide, and the agency is seeking any information anyone might have about him or his extensive travels.
