BTK the dumb motherfucker

BTK killer terrorized Wichita residents for 17 long years from 1974 to 1991. You might be thinking. Wow. Must be a smart dude for not getting caught for so long.

Well… Yes and no. Let’s go back a little bit.

BTK’s real name is Dennis Rader and on paper this guy looks legit. Church going, ex-boy scout, AF vet, college grad, and is a family man with wife and kids. Typical all-American man.

Except that he murdered 10 people. BTK was a thirsty bitch. Constantly sending letters to the police and the press. BTK, which stands for “bind, torture, and kill” was a name that he gave himself in one of his letters. So Imma just call him Dennis.

In the end his thirst for attention is what got him caught. He stopped killing after 1991 but broke his silence 2005 because in 2004 Witchita Eagle, a local newspaper published a story that Dennis is probably dead.

Now. This dumb bitch asked the police on his letter if it is okay to communicate via a floppy disk. Why he didn’t choose AOL mail is beyond me. The cops of course said it was safe.

Ultimately Dennis was caught due to a DNA evidence but the floppy disk gave the detectives a huge break through because they were able to trace where the floppy disk came from.

Dennis is now serving 10 consecutive life sentences.

Some of you might be wondering why people started talking about Dennis all of a sudden. It’s because he was the center of a TV show called “Mindhunter,” which is a show based on the first FBI profiler team.
