The FBI has ruled out serial killer Israel Keyes in the disappearance of teenager Brianna Maitland of Sheldon in 2004. Keyes, who committed suicide in jail on charges of killing an Alaska woman, confessed to the 2011 slayings of Bill and Lorraine Currier of Essex and as many as five unnamed victims, four in Washington state and one on the East Coast. Keyes often traveled to the East Coast to visit family in Maine and property he owed in Constable, N.Y. FBI special Agent Jolene Goeden told the Burlington Free Press that financial records show Keyes was elsewhere on March 19, 2004, when Maitland, 17, disappeared.
