FBI searches for serial killer’s 1st victim

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The FBI is searching for a woman they call the first victim of a confessed serial killer.

FBI agents in Oregon say Israel Keyes admitted to raping — but not killing — a young girl on the Deshutes River near Maupin, Ore., between 1996 and 1998 after separating her from a group of friends.

Keyes confessed to eight murders across the country before committing suicide in an Anchorage jail last weekend. Authorities know the identities of three victims but he didn’t provide names or details of the other five.

The FBI in a release says Keyes admitted to the Oregon rape. Agents say the woman would now be in her late 20s or 30s. There are no police records of the rape. Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI.
