Rader's testimony (written transcript) [kansas.com, June 28, 2005]
So does Rader have any remorse over the killings?
"Yes, I do."
But with that admission, he changes the subject and says,
"Very compartmentalized. I can wear many hats; I can switch gears very rapidly. I can become emotionally involved. Be cold at it. Maybe that is something I will finally figure out, if I ever figure it out. It's history."
I asked what he would say to the victims families.
"I had mentioned earlier, I have a lot of remorse, I feel very sorry for them. I know that is something I wouldn't want to have happen to my family. I look in Mr. Fox's eyes, I saw him on TV once, and I see the tears in his eyes, I feel for him. I feel for them. I know they won't understand that, but I do."
In the Otero murders, four members of Joseph Otero's family died including two children: Josephine and Joseph Otero Jr. I asked, how he could kill children, especially when he had kids of his own.
"That's a very hard question. I think in the long run, it was a sexual fantasy, the children."
Then he said he committed that crime more towards the adults than the children. He says the children just happened to be there.
