Man charged in Alaska barista's death kills self in cell; authorities link him to 7 other murders

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- A man charged in the death of an Alaska barista has killed himself, and authorities said Sunday he had been linked to at least seven other possible slayings in three other states.

Israel Keyes was found dead in his Anchorage jail cell Sunday morning. U.S. Attorney Karen Loeffler said at a news conference that Keyes killed himself.

Keyes was facing a March trial in federal court for the murder of 18-year-old Samantha Koenig, who was abducted from an Anchorage coffee kiosk last February. He was later arrested in Texas after using the victim's debit card.

Authorities said Keyes confessed to killing Bill and Lorraine Currier of Essex, Vt. The couple was reported missing in June 2011.

Keyes also indicated he killed four others in Washington state and one person in New York state, but did not give the victims' names, authorities said.

1. Mixed feelings about this.

It was nice he offed himself and saved a LOT of tax money going thru varius trials and appeals
but
he could have left more info. about his victims, so their families could have some peace.
