An admitted serial killer who committed suicide as he was awaiting trial for murdering an Anchorage barista is believed to have killed at least 11 people across the country, law enforcement officials said on Monday.

Investigators believe Israel Keyes murdered his fist victim in 2001 and his last in 2012 when he kidnapped 18-year-old Samantha Koenig of Anchorage, strangled her and dumped her remains in an icy lake.

The FBI released a detailed timeline of Keyes' travels and confessed crimes, which also included cases of robbery, arson and rape.

"Right now, the best hope for solving these cases is going to come from information from the public," said Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin Feldis, who led the prosecution of Keyes.

Keyes was arrested on March 13, 2012, in Lufkin, Texas, in connection with Koenig's disappearance from the Anchorage coffee stand where she worked.
