Prison Officials remain silent about information into death of serial killer

Alaska prison officials have refused to release information into the death of serial killer Israel Keyes.

Officials with the prisons have refused to comment on the particular question of how 34 year old Keyes obtained a razor prior to his jail cell suicide.

The state Department of Corrections denied a public records request from The Associated Press that seeks to determine whether Keyes was allowed to have a razor, which he used to cut hi wrist.

The state cites prisoner confidentiality and quote "anticipation of litigation."

Keyes, who along with cutting his wrist also strangled himself, was found dead in his cell on December 2nd, 2012 while awaiting a March trial in Federal Court in the 2012 killing of 18 year old Anchorage Barista, Samantha Koenig.
