Profiler John Douglas Discusses BTK Case

Profiler John Douglas has a website. During a radio show he made some comments regarding the Wichita BTK Strangler case. Here are some notes summarizing that discussion taken by a listener:

Mr. Douglas gave a recap of the case. He told how the killer was active back in the 1970's. The killer killed 4 members of the Otero Family, and told how the killer cut the phone wires, how he brought a gun and a knife to the scene, got the family members to tie eachother up, and how he was principally after the daughter. The killer took the daughter downstairs to the basement, tied her to a pole, and he'd masturbated on her. Mr. Douglas got the case back in 1980. The killer submitted a sketch of the crime scene, and Mr. Douglas knew the killer didn't do that from memory, he'd had to have taken photographs of the scene and the killings.

Mr. Douglas went on to say now, they have letters and artwork, they have sketches. He told about the one woman who never showed up at her home where the BTK was waiting, and he sketched what he was going to do to her: "She was over a bed, she was gagged, and something inserted in her vagina, looked like a police club, a billy club."

He says if the police would publish that information it might help catch BKT. A guy just doesn't start doing that kind of art, that graphic kind of stuff - that violent artwork. Someone might have been looking over his shoulders over the years, and seen some of his other work and recognize his style.

Mr. Douglas said there was no forced entry into any of the homes, and he went on to say this is not a crime at that time of someone who was about 25 years of age, it's way too sophisticated and the fantasy, it starts off as fantasy, highly sophisticated, delusional, and started as porn, and drawing nude women, then went to murder but even that's not satisfying, so he photographed the crime scenes, then went home and sketched them, and sent in the sketches. Mr. Douglas said so much time has gone by, we don't know if it's him, or some associate of his sending these in now.
