ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Concurrent searches have taken place this week at murder suspect Israel Keyes' home in Anchorage and at property he owns in upstate New York.
Federal and local authorities have declined to discuss the nature of the searches. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin Feldis said the Anchorage search warrant was sealed and wouldn't discuss details, but FBI agents were seen with metal detectors, cameras and ladders at the home.
WCAX-TV in Burlington, Vt., reports numerous New York state police and FBI agents conducted a 2-day search at a cabin and 10-acre property Keyes owns near the Canadian border in Constable, N.Y.
New York police and federal officials didn't return calls Friday seeking comment.
Keyes is charged in the kidnapping and death of 18-year-old Samantha Koenig who worked as an Anchorage barista.
