ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An upcoming special episode of Investigation Discovery's "Dark Minds" TV series says it has new information about confessed Alaska serial killer Israel Keyes.
Keyes was believed to have killed at least 11 people before committing suicide in his Anchorage jail cell 15 months ago while awaiting a federal trial in the 2012 rape and strangulation murder of his last known victim, 18-year-old Samantha Koenig of Anchorage.
Keyes was arrested in Lufkin, Texas, about six weeks later after using Koenig's debit card. Three weeks later, her dismembered body was found in a frozen lake north of Anchorage.
The two-hour, season-opening "Dark Minds" episode is scheduled to air April 2. The episode suggests a man who disappeared from Washington's Olympia National Park in 2004 was a victim of Keyes.
