Dennis Rader “Bind Torture Kill” T-Shirt
Dennis Lynn Rader, more well known as the BTK Strangler, is an American Serial Killer in and around Wichita, Kansas. He seemed by everyone who knew him to lead a very normal life. He worked a day job as a security alarm installer, went on to become a city compliance officer, while also acting as president of a local church council and Cub Scout leader. But little did they know that he was leading a dark and criminal double life. His serial killings began in 1974 with the murders of a husband and wife and two of their children, which he would later claim responsibility for in a 1978 letter to the Wichita news station. In this letter he also claimed responsibility for several other murders, as well as suggested his own nickname, “BTK” standing for “Bind, Torture, Kill.” In the years following, he went on to murder three other people, sometimes going years in between killings. During this time he maintained a correspondence with press as well as the police. Soon after his last killing in 1991, the BTK murders came to a stop, and all the murder cases went cold, until years later in 2004. He began to taunt police and press once again with crime scene photos of his own, evidence from the crime scenes, and letters that were dropped all over the city of Wichita. On February 16, 2005, police caught a break when Rader sent them a floppy disk with instructions for future communications. On that floppy disk they were able to pull the name “Dennis” and the name of the church he was a part of. Ten days later, Dennis Lynn Rader was arrested and charged with 10 counts of first degree murder, in which he plead guilty to and confessed in detail with no remorse. Rader is still alive today, serving his 10 life sentences in at the El Dorado Correctional Facility in Kansas.
