dc.description.abstract From 1974 until 2004 the citizens of Wichita, Kansas were plagued by a serial killer nightmare. A man by the name of Dennis Rader was caught and convicted of the murders of ten people during that period. This may seem like a tightly wrapped mystery, but the truth is that the case of the BTK serial killer is far from closed. This paper is meant to investigate the ways in which Dennis Rader deviated from the standard serial killer profile. The facts of the case, empirical evidence, notes from an expert, and Rader's own confession will be used to frame the portrait of an entirely new breed of serial killer.
