BTK Breaks his Silence:
Communications 2004 - 2005
BTK was silent for many years and thought to be dead, incarcerated, or to have moved away. In 2004, he started sending communications again much to everyone’s surprise and chagrin. March 17, 2004, BTK sends his first communication to the Wichita Eagle - a letter with a photocopy of Vicki Wegerle's driver's license and three pictures of the crime scene. It has a bizarre return addressee: Bill Thomas Killman. Communication 2 is received May 5th by KAKE-TV; a letter, word search puzzle, list of chapters - "The BTK Story" copycatted from Crime Library’s chapters, photocopies of a badge and two ID cards from Southwestern Bell and the Wichita schools. The next communication is June 1; a letter about the Otero murders, not publicly released. Communication 4, July 17, is a letter left in the drop box at the Wichita Public Library - police have not revealed what was in this communication. Then, BTK left a manila envelope in a UPS drop box at the Omni Center in Wichita containing a letter, BTK's biography, pictures, and 'names’ on October 21st.
It appears he was frustrated that these were not becoming public. In December, BTK called a 7-11 giving directions to a package in Murdock Park, but police could not find it. It was found a week later by a man walking through the park. It contains a number of items but most bizarre was a PJ doll, circa 1969 –1985. The doll had a bag over its head & its hand and feet bound by panty hose. There were five communication in early 2005 starting January 8, most notably a Post Toasties box (weighted with a brick on top, leaning against a road sign in the country), requests to place ads in the local paper to communicate, and a postcard with the addressee ‘Happ Kakemann’ (referring to a character that was once on KAKE-TV in the 70’s). The February 16 communication contained the infamous computer disk that helped lead to Dennis Rader.
