Wichita BTK Strangler

The Wichita BTK (Bind-Torture-Kill) Strangler story had a few new wrinkles recently.

• Pat Brown, a noted "Investigative Criminal Profiler," wrote a new profile of the serial killer on September 26th, 2004. She posted it at The Sexual Homicide Exchange, Inc.

• KAKE-TV in Wichita reported that a British psychic, Dennis McKenzie, who had a hand in solving other murders, recently was in Wichita for two weeks with a film crew:

A British crew is heading home, but they left behind information from an expert who has helped catch killers in the past. This international intrigue could shed new light on the case.

• From the Wichita Eagle:
It was a motley crew that gathered in front of the house in southwest Wichita: Retired Wichita police Captain Bernie Drowatzky. Dennis McKenzie, a clairvoyant from Cambridge, England who said he was working on the most challenging criminal case in his career. And a London film crew that was working on a documentary about Wichita's BTK strangler.

• Robert Beattie who is writing a book whose working title is "THE HUNT FOR THE BTK STRANGLER" commented on the case in a recent letter:
This is a story of the efforts, conflicts, and frustration of those in law enforcement, of the suffering of the victims and their families and friends, of the forgotten grievers including the journalists, psychologists, and prosecutors, as well as many others in our community who have been traumatized.

My book will be completed soon. When it will see print depends on decisions by the publisher.
