Plot Synopsis

From 1970 to 1991 serial killer Dennis Rader, know as the BTK Stranger (Bind, Torture, Kill), murdered ten people in Wichita, Kanas. Two determined detectives spend years trying to solve the murders. Evidence leads to Rader, a man who had different lives: cold-blooded killer; loving husband and devoted church leader; controlling Park City compliance officer; and aging man with evil thoughts, still on the prowl for new victims. He is eventually captured and in 2005 he is convicted and sentenced on ten counts of first-degree murder.
