25 - SERIAL: Daughter of the BTK Serial Killer

Kerri Rawson, the daughter of the BTK Serial Killer opens up about her father Dennis Rader. What family life was like before he was arrested, how she learned he was the BTK Serial Killer and her relationship with him now.

Rawson is the author of the "tell all" book titled: "A Serial Killers Daughter, my story of faith, love and overcoming". Rawson describes herself as a crime victim and says she lives with P-T-S-D and depression.

It was her DNA that led to his arrest using the same method of forensic genealogy that detectives used in the Golden State Killer case.

Like the Golden State Killer, Rader terrorized the community for decades. He killed at least ten people including innocent children between January 15, 1974 - January 19, 1991. Rader tortured his victims and taunted police going by the moniker B-T-K, an acronym he gave himself which stood for BIND, TORTURE, KILL.

His modus operandi (M.O.) was stalking, bandage and suffocation, he would dress in women's clothing and a female face mask and pleasure himself pretending to be his victims. His cover was the persona of a family man, city employee and church president.

He is currently serving life in prison at El Dorado Correctional Facility in Kansas.
