American serial killer, rapist, arsonist, burglar, bank robber, sociopath, necrophiliac and sick fuck Isreal Keyes was arrested in March 2012 after he had committed a dozen murders and multiple rapes in the United States.
Born in Utah in ’78, he was homeschooled and brought up in a religious background. Later on in life, he became an Athiest and discovered the music of the Insane Clown Posse.
In 1998 he joined the military until he left in 2001. In 2007 he started up his own construction business in Alaska called Keyes Construction.
Keyes has killed 4 people in Washington, 1 person in New York, 1 person in New Jersey, a couple in Vermont, and an 18-year-old woman in Alaska.
He committed suicide in prison in December of 2012.
I’m not going to get into too many details about this asshole’s life but the fact that it was even mentioned that he was an ICP fan in the late ’90s is just odd to me.
A YouTube channel called That Chapter released a video a few months back called “The Chilling Case of Isreal Keyes.” In the almost 20-minute long video, the narrator Mike explains Isreal’s story from beginning to end.
Mike does a great job of telling the story (if you can handle his accent) but at around the 4-minute mark of the video, Mike states “He was known for his heavy drinking and his love of the Insane Clown Posse.” Normally this would be fine but in this case, when we’re talking about a prolific serial killer, do we really need to mention the music they were listening to in their late teens? To the video’s creators, this is just a throwaway line. To the Juggalo community though, this can be very damaging. We’ve been trying to show the country that we’re not violent and not a gang for the past 8 years. It’s pretty hard to get that light shining bright enough for the world to see but this ninja and his video have almost 300,000 views as I write this now.
People watching that are unfamiliar with ICP aren’t going to have a positive opinion of them after watching this video. Which is wack.
