The seller of a Kansas house where BTK serial killer Dennis Rader took a woman’s life in 1985 says he is disclosing the murder to make sure any potential buyer doesn’t have a problem with the home’s past.
Real estate experts think the seller is doing the right thing by letting buyers know what happened there, even though state law doesn’t require such disclosure.
Rader told a judge in 2005 that he sneaked into the Park City residence and strangled 53-year-old Marine Hedge.
The former Park City compliance officer is serving a life prison sentence for 10 Wichita-area murders over three decades. He called himself BTK, which stood for “bind, torture, kill.”
Rader’s own Park City home was purchased by the city and torn down.
