FBI: Alaska killer likely not tied to missing man in Washington

The Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — The FBI says it’s highly unlikely confessed Alaska serial killer Israel Keyes was connected to the unsolved disappearance of a man in Washington state.

A special episode of Investigation Discovery’s “Dark Minds” TV series airing April 2 says Gilbert Gilman was a potential victim of Keyes, who had been in the region. Gilman disappeared from Olympic National Park in 2006.

Keyes was believed to have killed at least 11 people around the country before committing suicide in his Anchorage jail cell 15 months ago. He was awaiting a federal trial in the 2012 strangulation murder of his last known victim, 18-year-old Samantha Koenig of Anchorage.

Anchorage-based FBI Special Agent Kevin Donovan says Keyes likely was not involved in Gilman’s disappearance, based on evidence and reviews of unsolved homicides and missing-persons cases.

Gilman, 47, of Olympia, deputy director of state Department of Retirement Systems, went missing after heading out for a hike in Olympic National Park. His silver 2005 Ford Thunderbird convertible was found a few days later at a ranger station.

Gilman, who recently moved to the Northwest from New York, was described as being in good health, but with limited overnight wilderness skills.
