Based upon investigation conducted following his arrest in Texas during March 2012, Israel Keyes is believed to have committed multiple kidnappings and murders across the United States between 2001 and March 2012. Keyes is suspected to have specifically traveled through various cities in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and the Glenrose, Texas areas during February 2012. In December 2012, Keyes committed suicide while in custody after being returned to Anchorage, Alaska. The FBI is now attempting to identify the extent of Keyes’ travels and activities and is seeking the public’s assistance specifically as it pertains to the following locations during the time period of February 12 through February 16, 2012:
Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex
Prior to his suicide, while in custody, Keyes admitted traveling through the cities of Azle, Aledo, and Cleburne, Texas, during February 2012. Investigators suspect Keyes’ rental vehicle became stuck in a muddy, rural area, possibly near Cleburne, Texas, between February 12 and 16, 2012. Investigators are seeking the identification of any person from whom Keyes may have obtained assistance or anyone having contact with Keyes or his vehicle during that time.
Glen Rose, Texas Area
Keyes is also suspected of visiting the Post Oak Cemetery in the Glen Rose, Texas area between February 12 and 16, 2012. Investigators are seeking the identification of any person having contact with Keyes or his vehicle during that time frame.
