It is a case that gets more horrifying with every release from investigators. There are new details about serial killer Israel Keyes -- and how he murdered a teen in Alaska.
For the first time -- we see and hear Keyes talk about his crimes. The FBI released a clip of Keyes describing how he found his victims.
He's seen in the video, calm, and with a coffee and a baked good back in July.
"I would let them come to me," Israel Keyes explained to Alaska investigators about being a serial killer.
But at the same time he was talking to investigators -- special FBI search team was across the country and in its final days of an 11 week search at the Coventry landfill. It was the largest search in Vermont history. But the investigators did not find the remains of Bill and Lorraine Currier of Essex.
Keyes killed the couple in what he called a blitz attack a year before. He broke into their home while they slept, kidnapped them, and eventually shot Bill and sexually assaulted and strangled Lorraine.
Police began interviewing Keyes on and off starting in April this year -- when he was arrested for the kidnap and killing of 18-year-old Samantha Koenig. Police developed a rapport with him -- and he revealed a trove of details about 8 murders over a 10 year period. He told them of traveling the country -- and searching quiet areas like cemeteries, and parks -- for potential victims.
"Back when I was smart, I would do it, I would let them come to me. This remote area. Go to a remote area that's not anywhere near where you live, but that other people go to as well, you might not get exactly what you're..there's not as much to choose from, in a manner of speaking, but, there's also no witnesses really. There's nobody else is around, so," Keyes told investigators
Police say Samantha Koenig was alone back in February -- closing up the Anchorage coffee house where she worked -- when Keyes attacked her. Investigators released new details in her killing -- hoping they trigger someone's memory - and that could lead to clues in Keyes' other murders.
They say Keyes tied her hands with zip ties - as he had with the Curriers. He forced her to walk towards his truck -- but Samantha broke free and started to run -- as Lorraine Currier had. He tackled her -- dragged her into the truck -- and bound her. He stole her ATM card and cellphone -- took her to the shed at his home -- raped -- and asphyxiated her. Keyes then left Anchorage the next day -- on a pre-planned 2 week cruise.
When he got back to town -- he posed Samantha's body with a copy of the local paper to make it look like she was alive - and took a photo. He used it to demand ransom from her boyfriend. Then -- he dismembered her body -- cut a hole in the ice atop a nearby lake -- and dumped her remains.
