FILE - In a Thursday, April 19, 2012 file photo, Samantha Koenig's grandmother Florence Milton, left, and mother Darlene Christiansen, right, paid their respects at an open house memorial for Koenig at Legacy Funeral Homes in Anchoragey. Israel Keyes, who prosecutors say abducted and killed 18-year-old Samantha Koenig, was found dead in his Anchorage jail cell of an apparent suicide Sunday, Dec. 2, 2012. Investigators say Israel Keyes was not only suspected of killing Koenig but may be linked to seven other possible slayings around the country, including Bill and Lorraine Currier of Essex, Vt. The bodies of the Curriers have never been found. They were last seen leaving their jobs on June 8, 2011. Anchorage police chief Mark Mew said Keyes confessed to killing Koenig, as well as killing Bill and Lorraine Currier of Essex, Vt. Keyes, 34, also indicated he killed four others in Washington state and one person in New York state, but didn't give the victims' names, authorities said.
