ANCHORAGE, Alaska —

Authorities have released video footage of an Alaska barista being abducted by a man who died in an apparent suicide this week.

In the video caught by a surveillance camera, a man later identified as Israel Keyes wears a black mask with eye holes as he climbs through the window of an Anchorage coffee kiosk last February.

Police say he is suspected of killing at least 8 people across the country over the past decade, including 18-year-old barista Samantha Koenig.

In the video, Koenig is seen putting her hands up several times before Keyes leads her out. Police say she was killed hours later. Her body was recovered from an ice-cover lake in April north of Anchorage.

The 34-year-old Keyes faced a March trial in the killing. He was found dead Sunday morning in his jail cell.
