ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The lead investigator in the February slaying of an Alaska barista by serial killer Israel Keyes says the Anchorage man also targeted the young woman's boyfriend before changing his mind.

Anchorage homicide Detective Monique Doll says Keyes abducted 18-year-old Samantha Koenig at the coffee stand where she worked and waited in the dark structure for the arrival of Koenig's boyfriend, who was picking her up.

Doll says Keyes changed his mind for some reason and left with Koenig.

Keyes, who confessed to killing at least eight people across the country, raped and strangled Koenig, whose dismembered body was found in April.

Keyes was arrested in Lufkin, Texas, in March, and killed himself earlier this month in his Anchorage jail cell, where he was awaiting trial next year in Koenig's death.
