Alaska serial killer tied to 11 deaths

Federal agents say they've now linked 11 killings to admitted serial killer Israel Keyes and are looking into possible ties to killings in other countries.

Keyes killed himself in December, about nine months after his arrest in the slaying of an Anchorage, Alaska, coffee barista. Police said he admitted to at least seven other slayings, from Vermont to Washington state, before his death.

In a statement issued Monday afternoon, the FBI office in Anchorage said agents have now added three more to that grim tally, based on his statements:

- a pale-skinned woman in an older car, "possibly having a wealthy grandmother"

- one in which the victim was posed to make it look like the death had been an accident

- one "in Texas or a surrounding state" that he had denied committing before his death.
