Who was Israel Kayes?
Keyes was born on January 7th, 1978. He was the second born of nine children, all of whom were homeschooled by their parents. They lived in a cabin in rural Stevens County, Washington when Keyes was young, which is where the Keyes family became friendly with the family Chevie Kehoe, according to Maureen Callahan’s biography of Keyes titled “American Predator: The Hunt for the Most Meticulous Serial Killer of the 21st Century.” Kehoe went on to murder William Mueller and his wife and stepdaughter. He is currently serving three consecutive life sentences in prison for those murders.

Israel Kayes 48 Hours
CBS’ 48 Hours, titled “Tracking the Murders of Israel Keyes” features never-before-seen evidence that the FBI is using to try to track Keyes’ victims, which are thought to be buried across the country.
Katherine Nelson an FBI Special Agent, tells 48 Hours correspondent Peter Van Sant that they believe skulls drawn in Keyes’ blood that were seized from his cell represent 11 victims.
“We believe that 11 is the total number of victims,” she says. “I don’t think anybody in his family, his friends, his relationships, his spouses, had any idea what he was doing. With Keyes, it wasn’t about a particular victim, it was about a location.”
“That’s where I got my kicks, I guess, was being able to live two different lives and have no one have a clue,” says Keyes in an interrogation video, adding, “Every time I’d drive, I’d be looking for places. Good places to do stuff.”
“He loved to travel. He would rent cars, he would drive thousands of miles, he would take people from one state and he would bury them in other states,” says another FBI agent. “There are potential victims wherever Israel Keyes traveled.
“We know there are families out there whose loved ones died at the hands of Israel Keyes. Right now we’re just trying to find them,” says Nelson. 48 Hours airs Saturdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
