Samantha Koenig's killer, and admitted serial murderer, Israel Keyes reportedly slit his wrist and strangled himself. These details behind his suicide indicates that he was desperate to get out of the upcoming murder trial(s) against him. As reports state, however, it's unclear as to what exactly led to his suicide.
It's reported that he slit one of his wrists with the blade taken from a disposable razor and then tied a sheet around his neck. The confessed serial killer left behind more questions than answers -- after he confessed to killing several people. He confessed to killing "a lot more" than the ones known about, but refused to divulge names and details.
Over the course of about 11 years, Israel Keyes was a loner and a predator, and Samantha Koenig's death served as the harbinger of doom that put a stop to his activities. If anything, that is the one positive thing that came out of her case. She didn't die in vain; she helped put a stop to a dangerous individual. The wide attention given to her case led to him being caught -- along with his arrogance and sloppy behavior. But now, will police ever find out about his other victims?
