Before his case could be heard in court, Israel Keyes committed suicide while incarcerated. “Your face framed in dark locks like a painting, the sun gleamed through highlights of crimson,” began the poem “An Ode to Murder,” which was found among his papers next to his bed. I wonder what colour it will be and how straight it will become after being plastered back with your blood and sweat.
Keyes revealed details of his deeds during questioning that followed his arrest. He was slow to admit that he had committed a number of crimes. Additionally, he said that he had no regrets about the deeds he had done and that he was only acting on his own desires.
Keyes collected Koenig’s body, which had been frozen since he left, when he got back from his trip. The body was then groomed and set up to appear as though she were still alive. He held her upright after stitching her eyes open and snapped a photo of her holding a four-day-old edition of the Anchorage Daily Newspaper.
He then sent Koenig’s family this picture along with a request for $30,000 to be deposited into her account. Keyes had already obtained her debit card by that point. The family carried out the directive. This made it easier for the detectives to keep a watch on Keyes’ actions via the card, which resulted in his arrest. He had made purchases with the debit card all over the Southwest. In the Above section Samantha Koenig Ransom Photo.
