BTK. Those three letters struck fear into the hearts of the residents of Wichita, Kansas for three decades. They stand for Bind, Torture, and Kill–the method used by the madman who claimed the lives of 10 men, women, and children starting in 1974. BTK remained one of the most elusive serial killers in American history until his arrest in 2005. When he was finally captured, the identity of the killer shocked the entire city.

BTK first struck in 1974 with the brutal slaying of four members of the Otero family. The mother, father, and two children, aged 11 and 9, were all found dead in their home. The children and father Joseph had been suffocated with plastic bags over their heads, and mother Josephine was found hanging from a drainpipe in the house. Horribly, it was the Otero’s third, teenage son, Charlie, who discovered the carnage when he came home from school on January 15, 1974.
