On this episode comedian Tom O’Mahony joins me to talk about one of the best kept secrets in modern True Crime; the man with a thousand murder buckets and an unpredictable and seemingly uncontainable serial scourge on the entirety of the US; Israel Keyes.
Growing up as a Mormon in a massive family can mess with the best of us but Israel took it that step further and his cultish childhood led to a deeply troubled adolescence with gangs of killer criminals as close friends and ideation of terrorist and brutal racist crimes all through his teenage years.
Israel was most famous for his ‘Murder Kits’ which were buried boxes or buckets filled with lethal paraphernalia to commit his crimes. He travelled too; like, a lot! Originally from Alaska he flew into US cities for work and would drive thousands of miles in short periods of time to throw law enforcement off the scent.
His final sloppy crimes and his interviews, dripping with yearning for infamy, have made him a wee bit famous but, as I see it, not as famous as he should be for a serial killer who has been in operation in just the last 20 years!
