Dennis Rader the BTK Killer
The No Show
On April 28, 1979, Dennis Rader finally gave up and left the empty home he was waiting inside of before the resident, Anna Williams, 63, returned. Afterwards he sent the media a package with personal items he took from
her home, and a poem of death.
"Oh Anna Why Didn't You Appear?"
He said he was disappointed because he planned to kill her.
Rader told a psychologist that Anna wasn’t his only miss.
"There’s a lot of lucky people out there ... didn’t make it to the house ... or for some reason I didn’t go. There’s a lot of lucky people out there, yes."
After the failed attempt, BTK disappeared for awhile.
Anna died several years ago.
