Israel Keyes, who was awaiting trial for the murder of an Anchorage barista, Samantha Koenig, committed suicide in jail in Anchorage last weekend. But before he died Keyes told FBI agents that he killed four people in Washington and had assaulted his first victim in Oregon but did not kill her, according to a news release from the Portland Bureau of the FBI.
Now the FBI is searching for the woman Keyes assaulted in Oregon to help understand who else he may have hurt in the last 15 years. FBI agents have been unable to find a report of the rape, according to the release.
According to authorities, Keyes likely robbed banks across the country and may have sexually assaulted and murdered other people in many other states.
Full disclaimer: The Anchorage barista killed by Keyes is related to a family member of a Source staff person.
Anyone who has information about the rape case is asked to call the FBI in Portland at (503) 224-4181, in Bend at (541) 389-1202 or the national hotline at 1-800-CALL FBI.
