Eerie moment serial killer caught by Google Maps car weeks after murderous spree

A Google Maps user exploring the streets of America has spotted serial killer Israel Keyes in a snap taken only a few years before his arrest.

Keyes, who was arrested in 2012 for a streak of murders, bank robberies, rapes, arson and necrophilia, later killed himself in his Anchorage Correctional Facility cell.

The former US army specialist was spotted by a user on Google Maps, who uploaded the chilling footage to YouTube, which shows Keyes near a parked truck in 2009.

Footage of the killer shows him wearing work clothes and presiding over a selection of tools in Anchorage, Alaska, reportedly just one month after the Currier murders took place.

Discussion groups on Reddit were surprised at the finding and identified the truck as Keyes' as it had the business name on the back of it.

Just one month before the image was taken, Keyes had committed two murders by renting a car in Chicago and driving over 1,000 miles away to pick up a "kill kit" he had planted there two years before.

Reddit users discovered it was Keyes when positioning the Google Maps camera at the right angle showed that Keyes' name and at-the-time phone number was on the back of the truck.

The serial killer's "Keyes Construction" truck can be seen on Anchorage street, a business that Keyes started in 2007.

He had a spell of employment in the United States military from 1998 to 2001, where Keyes says he briefly paused his murderous streak.

FBI agents revealed they may never know how many victims Keyes claimed, but the evidence left by the serial killer in the wake of his suicide has led agents to believe there are a total of 11 victims.

The evidence showed a drawing of 11 skulls and a pentagram, with the phrase "WE ARE ONE" written at the bottom, which the FBI believes is the closest evidence suggesting the number of kills Keyes, a self-professed "admirer" of Ted Bundy, carried out.
