Notorious serial killer Dennis Rader, a.k.a. The BTK Killer, has said that he is planning to write and publish a book about his heinous crimes to help raise funds for his victims’ families.
Rader murdered 10 people, seven women, one man, an 11-year-old girl and a nine-year-old boy in Kansas, between 1974 and 1991. He enjoyed taunting the police, and managed to evade capture for more than 30 years. A deleted file in a floppy disk and a DNA sample taken from one of his victim’s fingernails proved his eventual downfall.
The “BTK” moniker refers to “Bind, torture, kill”.
Rader was a member of Christ Lutheran Church at the time of the murders and had been elected president of the church council. He was also a Cub Scout leader.
Now 69, Rader is currently serving 10 consecutive life sentences at El Dorado prison facility in Kansas.
