THE KANSAS KILLER DENNIS RADAR GETS LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE

Between 1974 and 1991, Dennis Rader killed at least ten people in the Wichita, Kansas area. Rader was known as the BTK Killer, which stands for “bind, torture, kill.” Rader also sent notes to local authorities and media outlets describing the killing process, taunting them for not catching him. It was these letters that lead to his eventual capture in 2005.

After Rader kidnapped his victims he would bind them and strangle them until they passed out. Then he’d let them wake up and do it again, repeating the near-death experience and getting sexual gratification from it. He would eventually strangle the victim to death and masturbate into an article of their clothing.

Rader was caught because police were able to extract a deleted file from a floppy disk the killer had sent them. On the disk was information about Rader’s church, an organization of which he was an active member. It was DNA evidence that eventually busted Rader, and he later confessed to the crimes. He was convicted of 10 counts of murder in 2005. He is still in jail serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole
