Dennis Rader "the BTK Killer"

Wow it's been ages since i posted anything in the DTB SATURDAY DIGEST section of this blog as i have been so busy, I am so sorry guys, but today a serial killer known as BTK joins the longlist of World's Most Infamous Murderer at number 13.

Dennis Lynn Rader (born March 9, 1945) is an American serial killer who murdered ten people in Sedgwick County, Kansas, between 1974 and 1991.

He is also known as the BTK Killer or the BTK Strangler. "BTK" stands for "Bind, Torture, Kill", which was his infamous signature.

All of Rader's known crimes occurred in Kansas. He killed ten people in total and collected items from each murder scene. He also intended to kill others, notably Anna Williams, 63, who in 1979 escaped death by returning home much later than he expected. Rader explained during his confession that he became obsessed with Williams and was "absolutely livid" when she evaded him. Rader spent hours waiting in her home but became impatient and left when she did not return home from visiting friends.

He sent letters describing the details of the killings to police and local news outlets during the interval when the murders happened.

After a hiatus in the 1990s to the early 2000s, Rader resumed sending letters in 2004, he sent a floppy disc to the press which was to be his downfall, he was arrested in 2005 and subsequent guilty plea. He is currently serving 10 consecutive life sentences at El Dorado Correctional Facility in Kansas. His earliest possible release date is February 26, 2180.
