The youngest victims were 9 and 11-year-old youngsters, while the oldest was 62 years old. Four of his victims belonged to the same family. What exactly did he say on the confession tape? Rader will be the main focus of a new Oxygen series titled "Snapped: Notorious BTK Serial Killer." The show will follow police efforts to analyze his crimes against him.
Dennis Ray Rader was born on January 4, 1955, in Wichita, Kansas. He had an elder brother named Randy who was also a child murderer. His father was a traveling salesman who often worked long hours and thus left Dennis and his brother with their mother who was a high school graduate who wanted to go to nursing school but could not because she had no money for tuition. She worked several jobs including one as a housekeeper at a hospital to help support her family. It was here that she met her second husband who was also employed there. He was a surgeon who abused alcohol and prescription drugs and was away from home a large portion of the time. When he was not working or drinking, he would beat his wife and children.
When Dennis was 12 years old, his father died of a heart attack while playing golf. This probably caused him to feel inadequate and suffer from depression which led him to start killing families for pleasure. He would drive around looking for families who seemed happy and successful and then knock on their door pretending to be selling insurance or checking on their water heater.
Dolores E. Davis, his final victim, was discovered on February 1, 1991, along West 117th Street North and North Meridian Street in Park City. Rader murdered her on January 19, 1991. By 2004, the investigation into the BTK Killer had been declared closed. However, in May 2009, a former neighbor of Dolores E. Davis came forward with new information about the case. She claimed that there were several other victims that had not been reported by police, including one who was beaten to death.
After killing Dolores E. Davis, it is believed that Dennis Rader went home and cleaned out his house. When he returned, he poured gasoline around his house and set it on fire, but didn't burn it down. He then drove away from the scene.
Police believe that this was probably someone else's work, but they can't say for sure. No one has been charged with her murder yet.
After killing eight people and burning down his house, police believe that Dennis Rader stopped killing. He sent letters to newspapers confessing to all of his crimes and asking for forgiveness. In addition, he sent letters to crime magazines explaining why he killed each person. During these confessions, he said that he was born in 1944 and that his full name is Dennis Rader. He also said that he lived in Colorado during most of his life and that he had no permanent address after leaving Kansas.
