I never really learned much about this famous killer who was finally apprehended in recent years, so this episode of "Cold Case Files" (aired sometime after 2005) was very informative.
Heck, I didn't even know "BTK" stood for "bound, tortured and killed." Geesh, it's frightening how many sickos are out there in the world. It's also a sad comment how many killers would never have been caught, had they not want to have been.
If "BTK" had kept silent, he'd be a free man today, as we learn in this "Cold Case" episode. He practically turned himself in! Certainly, the people in Wichita, Kansas, knew all about this guy.....and for 30 years! I find it utterly amazing that a serial killer can "re-surface," so to speak, after an absence of 25 years, which is what Dennis Rader did in Wichita, although this guy who really wanted publicity for himself, apparently committed some murders and kept quiet about it at the time.
Eventually, Rader couldn't stand it any longer and wrote letters to the media demanding publicity. When the crimes in the '70s had gone unsolved and case was long "cold," everyone was stunned to hear from this guy again in 2004.
No sense going into his history; you can read it on the Internet. This episode shows the beginnings, some grisly photographs of victims (although the faces were all covered) and the end for this wacko.
