Keyes, a construction contractor, told investigators that they knew him better than anyone, and that this was the first time he'd ever spoken about what he called his double life.
‘‘A couple of times, he would kind of chuckle, tell us how weird it was to be talking about this,’’ Bell said.
Even though he was talking to investigators, Keyes didn’t want his name made public in any of the other investigations, especially the Curriers, because of the fallout of publicity. He threatened to withhold information if his name got out
‘‘If there was nobody else that he was concerned about, I think he wanted his story out there. He wanted people to know what he did,’’ Goeden said. ‘‘What he was worried about is the impact that was going to have on the people that cared about him and were close to him.’’
Keyes will be buried Sunday in Washington state. His mother and four of his nine siblings were traveling to the funeral, his mother’s pastor, Jacob Gardner, told the Anchorage Daily News.
