FBI agents in Oregon are looking for a woman they say is the first victim of confessed serial killer Israel Keyes.
Keyes committed suicide while in jail in Alaska last weekend as he was awaiting trial for the February murder of an Anchorage barista, Samantha Koenig.
Keyes told the FBI agents he raped - but did not kill - his first victim in Oregon between 1996 and 1998.
He said the girl was 14 to 18 years old, and that the sexual assault happened on the Deschutes River near Maupin.
FBI officials said the victim was with friends and Keyes was able to discretely separate her from the friends.
To date, authorities have not been able to find any relevant police reports that would fit this scenario, and it is possible that the victim never reported it.
If Keyes was being accurate about the time period and the girl's age, she would now be in her late 20s to early 30s. She may have lived in the area or simply been visiting the area on vacation.
Keyes told investigators he often traveled great distances and liked to find his victims along hiking trails, at campgrounds and in other remote areas.
Before his death, Israel told investigators he killed eight people, including at least four in Washington state. He's also believed to have robbed banks as he traveled across the country, but the FBI hasn't identified any robberies in Oregon for which he may have been responsible.
Anyone with information is asked to call 503-224-4181.
