The BTK Murders: Inside the "Bind Torture Kill" Case that Terrified America's Heartland

The BTK Murders: Inside the "Bind Torture Kill" Case that Terrified America's Heartland

From 1974 to 1991, someone in the midwestern city of Wichita was leaving behind slain tortured bodies and anonymously proclaiming himself to police and reporters as "BTK" for "Bind, Torture, Kill." Then, for the next 14 years, BTK was silent. But when he began sending letters again, investigators would not miss their chance...Stunningly, police arrested Dennis Rader, the president of his church board and the father of two. As a shocked community watched, evidence began to pile up. Then Rader coldly described how he went about "his projects" as the families of his victims relived the horrific scenes this supposed pillar of the community had unleashed on their loved ones.From the tricks he used to enter his victims' homes to the puzzles he sent the media and the key role his own daughter may have played in his arrest, this is the definitive story of the BTK killer. He was, as one victim's family member called him, "a black hole inside the shell of a human being"--and the worst American monster since Ted Bundy.

He made a mistake. When he was arrested, Rader’s family, friends, and coworkers were shocked to discover that B.T.K. had been among them, going to work, raising his children, and acting normal.This case stands out both for the brutal treatment of victims and for the ordinary public face that Rader, a church council president, had shown to the outside world.

Rader was her boss until his arrest in February 2005 as the BTK (Bind Torture Kill) serial killer, confessing ten brutal murders, over 17 years, 1974 to 1991.

Stalked and Strangled: Dennis Rader, the BTK Killer: A True Story of Bondage, Torture, and Murder

Stalked and Strangled: Dennis Rader, the BTK Killer: A True Story of Bondage, Torture, and Murder

At the end of the twentieth century, over the span of three decades, the story of the BTK Killer was almost the same as the boogey man. A tale told to frighten women and children about an unknown beast who murdered the innocent. The boogey man, however, remains a figment in the imagination of many, while the BTK Killer is real. Taunting the media and police, the BTK Killer stalked potentially dozens of women and killed 10 people before he was finally caught. Unlike most serial killers, he went through waiting periods between kills, including one period that lasted eight years before he struck again. “Bind them. Torture them. Kill them.” That was what the BTK Killer did, what he bragged about in his letters and poems to the media, and what he fantasized about. The BTK Killer gained fame and frightened the public through his taunting letters, using grammar so terrible authorities believed it was done on purpose or part of a code. Despite killing his last person in 1991, the BTK Killer wasn’t caught until 2005, nearly 15 years later, when his massive ego led to his arrest. One of his taunting letters was sent in on a floppy disk containing metadata that led the authorities to his front door. In truth, the BTK Killer was in actually a man named Dennis Rader, a church-going fam...

Why We Love Serial Killers: The Curious Appeal of the World's Most Savage Murderers

For decades now, serial killers have taken center stage in the news and entertainment media. The coverage of real-life murderers such as Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer has transformed them into ghoulish celebrities. Similarly, the popularity of fictional characters such as Hannibal “The Cannibal” Lecter or Dexter demonstrates just how eager the public is to be frightened by these human predators.But why is this so? Could it be that some of us have a gruesome fascination with serial killers for the same reasons we might morbidly stare at a catastrophic automobile accident? Or it is something more? In Why We Love Serial Killers, criminology professor Dr. Scott Bonn explores our powerful appetite for the macabre, while also providing new and unique insights into the world of the serial killer, including those he has gained from his correspondence with two of the world’s most notorious examples, David Berkowitz (“Son of Sam”) and Dennis Rader (“Bind, Torture, Kill”). In addition, Bonn examines the criminal profiling techniques used by law enforcement professionals to identify and apprehend serial predators, he discusses the various behaviors—such as the charisma of the sociopath— that manifest themselves in serial killers, and he explains how and why these killers often ...
