Did Israel Keyes commit another murder in our region?

NEWARK -

He's linked to 11 killings across the country including the 2011 murders of Bill and Lorraine Currier of Essex, Vt. Now, the FBI is connecting serial killer Israel Keyes to another murder in the North Country.

Keyes killed himself last December in an Alaska jail cell. Since then, investigators have been tasked with clearing up the trail of unanswered questions and unidentified victims Keyes left behind. Now, the feds are looking to piece together his vague stories of murder to help families find closure.

The FBI says Keyes admitted to abducting a woman April 9, 2009, from a state on the East Coast before killing and burying her body near Tupper Lake, N.Y. Authorities believe that woman may be Debra Feldman, a New Jersey woman who disappeared around the same time. Like the Curriers, her body was never found.

Keyes owned property in Constable, N.Y., and authorities did search the property but say they do not believe Feldman's body is buried there.

Investigators want to hear from anyone who knew Debra Feldman and may have information about her activities around the time she vanished. You can call the Hackensack, N.J. police department or the FBI. Click here for more information.

There is no indication Keyes knew Feldman. Like the Curriers, federal authorities say Keyes did not know any of his victims prior to their abductions. He admitted to hunting for his victims in remote areas, like parks, campgrounds, trailheads and boating areas. He also admitted to picking up prostitutes. And before he killed himself in prison, Keyes told authorities none of his victims' disappearances got much media attention before the Currier case.
