Days after a fresh search at the Anchorage home of slain barista Samantha Koenig’s accused killer, Israel Keyes, a simultaneous search of his land in New York is raising interest in both the Koenig case and that of a Vermont couple abducted and killed last year.
According to Burlington, Vt. station WCAX-TV, FBI investigators and state police converged Tuesday morning on a 10-acre plot belonging to Keyes in Constable, N.Y. A neighbor told the station that he’d led state police two months ago to what appeared to be a shallow grave on the property -- the same spot he led an FBI agent to Tuesday.
WCAX says Keyes, who faces federal charges of kidnapping resulting in death in the Koenig case, is also the prime suspect in the deaths of Bill and Lorraine Currier, who were abducted from their home in June 2011.
Investigators with the Anchorage Police Department and the FBI visited Keyes’ Turnagain home on the 2400 block of Spurr Lane Tuesday, using metal detectors to search areas outside the structure.
