The BTK serial killer says Bryan Kohberger shares a few of his traits, and that one among his personal assaults — a quadruple murder — is eerily just like the Idaho scholar slayings.
Dennis Rader — who gave himself the moniker, “Bind, Torture, Kill,” tells TMZ in a brand new electronic mail he believes Kohberger would lie in look forward to his victims, stalking them and casing their residence. All of this, BTK says, was “very like I did,” referencing Kohberger’s “darkish thoughts,” which he can relate to.
BTK additionally identified chilling parallels between his brutal 1974 murders of the Otero household in Kansas and the 4 slain University of Idaho college students, whom Kohberger has been charged with fatally stabbing in an off-campus residence.
“Murder 4, very like the Oteros, up shut and private stabbed,” BTK wrote, though he asphyxiated 4 Otero members of the family after tying them up of their Wichita home.
He went on to say that Kohberger left DNA on the crime scene similar to he did on the Otero home, leaving his semen on one sufferer’s physique. It took police years to hyperlink BTK to the crimes after developments in DNA know-how. However, Kohberger was quickly linked to the Idaho homicides after his DNA was discovered on a knife sheath, cops mentioned.
Lastly, BTK tells us Kohberger “might have killed by Fantasy Homicide. Which I did!” Of course, BTK was referring to his police confession that he murdered 10 folks due to his sexual fantasies. Idaho detectives haven’t disclosed Kohberger’s motive and he denies any wrongdoing.
