Crimes That Shook the World

Series 1 - 2. BTK

About this programme

2/6. Profile of serial killer Dennis Rader, who preyed on families in Kansas for nearly 30 years, and called himself BTK to draw attention to his preferred murder method - bind, torture and kill. Rader's narcissistic nature proved to be his downfall when, after years of mocking police attempts to find him, a careless mistake exposed his identity.
