FBI: No Links to Wash. Cases in New Israel Keyes Tips

The FBI says it has received about 100 phone calls since asking the public for information about an Alaska serial killer.

Special Agent Jolene Goeden of Anchorage says none of those calls have connected Israel Keyes to missing persons on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state, where he lived for several years.

Goeden tells the Peninsula Daily News reports most of the calls since August were from people who knew him.

Keyes was believed to have killed 11 people across the country, including five while he lived in Neah Bay in northwest Washington.

Keyes killed himself in an Anchorage jail in 2012 while awaiting a federal trial in the rape and strangulation murder of his last known victim, 18-year-old Samantha Koenig. The teenager was abducted February 2012 from the Anchorage coffee shop where she worked.
