Confessed serial killer Israel Keyes was mistakenly issued a razor before he committed suicide, according to a report released today by the Alaska Department of Corrections. The report also says “it appears that razor was not retrieved.”
Keyes’ body was found in his jail cell on December 2nd, months before he was to have gone on trial for the 2012 slaying of Samantha Koenig.
Though Keyes’ death was classified a suicide, the exact cause is unknown pending autopsy results, the report says.
Before he died, Keyes told investigators he had killed Koenig and at least seven other people across the country.
Keyes was in state custody in Anchorage because there are no federal prisons in Alaska.
