- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Authorities say they have confirmed that a man who apparently committed suicide in an Anchorage jail killed a Vermont couple missing since last year. Federal and state investigators said at a news conference in Vermont Monday afternoon that 34-year-old Israel Keyes provided details about the abduction of Bill and Lorraine Currier that authorities had not released to the public. The bodies of the Curriers have never been found, but Vermont investigators had said they found evidence to support the claims by Keyes that he killed them. Officials say he broke into the Currier's home, tied them up and forced them into their car. He then drove them to an abandoned house in Essex. Authorities say both the Curriers tried to escape. Keyes then shot Bill Currier with a gun he had stolen from the couple's home and sexually assaulted and strangled Lorraine Currier.
