FBI: Alaska barista assaulted, dismembered

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The FBI says an Alaska barista was sexually assaulted and killed the day after she was abducted last February.

Suspect Israel Keyes, who died in an apparent suicide this week, told authorities he left the barista's body in a tool shed for two weeks while he went on a cruise.

The FBI says Keyes told authorities he dismembered the body of 18-year-old Samantha Koenig after he returned from the cruise, and disposed of it in a frozen lake north of Anchorage.

Keyes was arrested in the killing in March in Texas, and is suspected in other killings across the country. His body was found in his Anchorage jail cell Sunday after he apparently killed himself.
