Admitted BTK Killer Planned to Kill Again

Dennis Rader Says He Had His Next Victim Picked Out
In two exclusive interviews with an ABC affiliate, BTK killer Dennis Rader said he was not done killing when he was arrested in February.
On June 27, Rader pleaded guilty to torturing, strangling, stabbing and shooting 10 victims from 1974 to 1991.Rader nicknamed himself BTK for "bind, torture, kill," and taunted investigators and journalists.
Larry Hatteberg, a Wichita, Kan., anchor who has covered the BTK killings since 1974, asked Rader in a phone interview if he had plans to kill again.
"There was probably one more," Rader said. "I was really thinking about it, but I was beginning to slow down age-wise my 'thinking' process, so it probably would have never went. It was probably more of an ego thing."Hatterberg also spoke to Rader face to face, and asked the killer if there were more victims than the 10 police knew about.Rader said there were only 10, but added "there were other things that happened." He indicated they had to do with the people he stalked, but would not elaborate.
