Two years before he killed Bill and Lorraine Currier, Israel Keyes buried a so-called "kill kit," in Essex.
The FBI in Alaska tells Channel 3 News, the serial killer buried a five gallon bucket, filled with ammunition, a silencer, gun scope, wires, a flashlight and other supplies, in the Woodside Natural Area along the Winooski River. It's located in Essex near the intersection of Susie Wilson Road and Route 15. Keyes was staying at the Handy Suites nearby. He stayed there again June of last year -- dug up the bucket -- and used those supplies when he kidnapped and killed the Curriers.
The FBI says before Keyes committed suicide in jail he confessed to having caches of weapons and supplies buried in locations around the country -- items he planned to use to commit murder.
The bucket of supplies used to kill the Curriers was discovered in Parishville, New York -- where he had disposed of the evidence. It's also where he ditched two weapons including Lorraine Currier's gun.
Authorities say Keyes is responsible for killing at least eight people. He hinted to investigators -- that there may be more victims.
Before killing himself in his Anchorage jail cell, Keyes told authorities he planned to strike again. Police found a body disposal kit for a future target that included shovels and Drano to speed up decomposition.
