Cliffie, you are absolutely correct - it appears that there are many that he killed and some have not been found; and others that they have found, they do not know if he did it or not.

And Phil, you are right too -- just recently members of the community, employees Mrs. Currier worked with spoke about her, with fondness, emotion, humor and the like - all good things to be able to do.

I don't understand why this isn't on every news station for the last 3 days. I only heard about it because he supposedly killed himself.

I daresay because people are getting a little burned out on serial-killer stories.

More often than not, TV / reporters / journalists, I think, write/prepare stories which are far too filled with sensationalistic [is that a word?] reporting which I think too often negates the compassion/anger that is associated with a crime, especially a horrendous crime, let alone affect the 'facts' of the case == I think, in this case certainly, WCAX [local television station] handled this reporting very well, compassionately, factual wise and sensitively. Even their interviews with friends/colleagues and co-workers was well done - that part especially I think was so important because it gave the community the ability to help each other as well as themselves.

I certainly hope the authorities are going to be able to find all of the missing victims soon - and find answers for the ones they have found and do not/did not know who committed the crime.

What causes someone to kill like this? I wonder what's become of his daughter.

"He would tell me about his days in the armed services and the parties they had. He would lovingly talk about his daughter, or tell me when he'd been up late because she was sick," said Jim Thompson, a volunteer who sometimes helped Keyes clean up community areas around Neah Bay.

Keyes was perhaps 18 years old when he committed his first sexual crime, which he described as a violent assault on a teenage girl he encountered on the Deschutes River in Oregon. The attack was apparently never reported. "He intended to kill her, but decided to let her go," said Agent Jolene Goeden..." Serial killer 'enjoyed telling us details' - latimes.com

Although I feel deeply for the families of this killer's possible victims who may forever go without answers about their loved ones, I have to say I am always thankful when a known criminal decides to off themselves and rid society of their presence. I like knowing that no more money will be spent on them sitting in prison for decades, going through appeals, etc.

And I think that for the known victim's family members, once they get past the initial anger over the suicide, knowing that this person is dead will ultimately allow them a deeper form of peace.

I wonder, could you make a career out of killing serial killers? Or does that make you a serial killer yourself?

It's interesting that his death was described as "not a hanging." He apparently acquired a razor blade to slash his wrist and also managed to "strangle himself." How does one do that, exactly? I'm not saying he didn't kill himself, because frankly, I don't care if he received a little old style prison justice, but it seems a bit odd.
