Authorities in New Hampshire who are investigating the homicide of
Celina Cass are taking an interest in Israel Keyes. Keyes is a
suspect in the murders of Bill and Lorraine Currier.
Assistant N.H. Attorney General Jane Young said Sunday, "State Police are aware of Mr. Keyes and they are being provided information through the FBI. Everybody is looked at in these cases. We would be remiss in our duty if we didn't follow up on any new information that came to light. State police are aware and have been in communication with the FBI, who certainly would share any information if there was any possible link to any homicides in New Hampshire."
This is the first time a law enforcement official has connected Keyes publicly in our region. Young was clear she wasn't saying there is a link between Keyes and Celina Cass, but said police must look at all new information, even if it only means ruling him out as a suspect.
Vermont authorities in charge of the Currier case told to media nine days ago that Bill and Lorraine were randomly targeted, abducted from their home then murdered shortly thereafter. They revealed that the suspect was in custody out of state on another charge -- but they would not say who. Channel 3 confirmed that suspect is 34-year-old Keyes who's in a federal prison in Alaska for allegedly kidnapping and killing an 18-year-old there. He checked into an Essex hotel the day before the couple disappeared and checked out the day after they went missing. Sources say while Keyes was being questioned about the Alaska murdered he told investigators where they could find the bodies of a missing Vermont couple. That ultimately lead to an 11 week search of a Coventry landfill. But the Curriers' bodies have never been recovered.
