    I have been rafting out in Maupin since the early 90s, so know the area well.

    I can't figure out where this could've took place, even when things were a little wilder and less regulated in the 90s, there are few places to intertube for long periods of time where someone could abduct and assault someone without getting discovered.

    Maupin is not easy to get to, ie not close to any major cities, definitely a destination spot.

    The other interesting thing is this has not received a lot of press locally. If they are truly interested in identifying this victim, you would think this would be all over the media.

    Being new to IK, maybe some of you sleuthstars can shed some more light, but I think this story is hinky.

    Interesting info and thoughts.

    This "confession" of IK's has been mentioned a few times here, I think, but it is good to have a thread devoted to it, IMO.

    (One thing -- can you still edit your thread title? If so, might be good to go back and insert something like "possible rape victim" in it, so folks can tell straight away what the thread is about.)

    First thoughts here: Maybe (if story is true) LE has located this victim -- also, maybe privacy concerns for her are coming into play.

    She may very well not have reported the incident at the time, if it occurred.

    They have said the incident was not reported, according to local Sherriff's office. I remember around that time there were a lot of groups of recent Russian immigrants who camped in the area, so I am wondering if there might have been a cultural/language barrier to reporting at that time.

    I first learned about IK in the McStay threads (Tulessa mentioned him) and my limited research has not yet located a lot of info. about him before the late 90s. I am interested in whether this incident in Maupin was his first violent assault, why he chose to live/be in that area, and what that may reveal about his evolution into murder. I find it hard to believe that he only had the one sexual assault without murder.

    Reading through the FBI transcripts, I also get the general sense that this guy is enjoying being in control and likes the mystery and mythology he is creating about himself.

    According to GGE's great "combo" timeline in the Timelines thread:


    Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - View Single Post - Israel Keyes Timelines *NO DISCUSSION*




    ...although there was a break from his parents/family around this time period, I believe.

    Have you read at the Acting at Random blog? I think it's a well-grounded source of info, good place to start, and it does discuss this time period:

    Hi, kpdx. Glad you made it over here. The story got heavy coverage in December 2012, and again in August last year. Below are links to some of the media reports from the region.
