Dennis Rader, the BTK killer was an American serial killer who murdered 10 people between 1974 and 1991. Motivated by sexual sadism and in search of notoriety, he toyed with the police and press sending them letters, packages and photographs of his victims. This was his eventual downfall.

We’d love to hear from you!Just follow the link below:https://stereo.com/unforgivablesAfter brutally murdering the Otero’s, BTK waited only a few months before he would ‘put down’ Kathryn Bright - but then waited three years until 1977 before striking again when he murdered both Shirley Vian and Nancy Fox that year.Almost a decade, 8 years to be exact, would pass before Rader targeted his neighbor, Marine Hedge in 1985. Vickie Wegerle would be strangeled in her home the following year, yet BTK waited nearly five more years before invading the home of his final victim, Dolores Davis, in 1991.
It was the year of 1974 and Dennis Rader was living a double life. And While the family man was hanging porch swings, building treehouses, watching his daughter crawl up her favorite climbing tree and planting flowers along the driveway, BTK was having, what he called, ‘motel parties.’ But - his own personal motel parties weren’t enough. With the memory of the Otero murders still fresh in his mind, Rader’s desires grew, and soon enough they would be too much for him to control.
To satisfy the deviancy that fuelled his sexual fantasies, the deeply visceral urge to troll, stalk and brutally victimize lasted for three decades, leaving 10 dead and the citizens of the largest city in Kansas afraid of what could be waiting inside their own homes in the light of day – or of what may be lurking outside of them at night….This is the story of Dennis Rader, otherwise known as BTK.
