Nancy Jo Fox's house - The BTK Killer.

On the night of December 8th, BTK parked his car a couple of blocks away from South Pershing Street. He then traveled to Nancy Fox's house on foot.

Although the lights were off and Rader knew that Nancy wasn't supposed to be home yet, he decided to err on the side of caution by knocking on the front door.

Once he was satisfied that there was no one inside, he walked around to the back of the property and cut the phone lines. He then broke a window at the back and entered the house.

After gaining entry, he sat in the kitchen and waited for the young secretary to return.

Nancy arrives home.

When Nancy arrived home, BTK confronted her. He told the 25-year-old that he had sexual problems and that he was going to tie her up and have sex with her.

Although Nancy was upset and verbally hostile towards Rader, she complied with his demands. BTK never revealed his true intentions to his victims until it was too late for them to try and fight back. In most cases, it seems as though his victims were under the impression that they would survive the encounter if they played ball.

At one point during their conversation, Nancy told Rader that she wanted "to get it over and done with." She also told him that she was going to call the police afterwards.

The fact that she was willing to make such a threat suggests that she was thoroughly convinced that he was going to let her go.

The murder of Nancy Fox.

At that stage, Rader allowed Nancy to use the bathroom. He also told her to undress while she was in there.

When Nancy came back out, he placed handcuffs on her, put her onto the bed, and then tied her feet together. Once she was completely restrained, he took out a belt and started to strangle her with it.

Because Rader was a sadist who enjoyed torturing his victims, he repeatedly tightened and loosened the belt so that he could prolong the act. As he was doing this, he taunted his victim by telling her that his name was BTK and that he was a "bad guy".

Following the brutal murder, Rader cleaned up the crime scene and took some of Nancy's clothes as "tokens". He also removed the handcuffs and retied her wrists using pantyhose.

BTK's 911 call.

BTK 911 phone call

The day after Nancy's murder, Dennis Rader reported the crime from a public payphone. This payphone was situated close to the intersection between Central Avenue and St. Francis Street.

Rader knew the area because it was close to a cafe that his work crew often visited.

Feeling excited and in need of attention, he decided to call 911 and report that a murder had occurred at 843 South Pershing Street.

"You will find a homicide at 843 South Pershing. Nancy Fox."

During the short call, Rader covered the phone with a handkerchief in an attempt to mask his voice. Because he left the phone dangling, the authorities were able to trace the call back to this location.

Following his arrest, BTK admitted that this was a risky act on his part. He also said that he felt extremely nervous whenever he heard the recording being played on the local news stations.

At the time, he was using his company's work truck. This was noticed by a witness, who reported that they saw a 6ft tall white male using the payphone. According to the witness, the man in question was wearing an industrial-type uniform and driving a truck with writing on the side of it.

If this witness had been close enough to read the writing on the side of Rader's truck, it would have led the police straight to him.

Nowadays, the payphone in question no longer exists. The building it was originally attached to has been demolished and replaced. In the image above, we have marked certain points with color-coded dots so that the two photos are easier to compare. The red circle indicates the general area where the phone was located.

BTK made the call at 8:20 a.m. outside of Organ's Market at 527 East Central. A woman spotted him while he was using the payphone. However, due to a lack of manpower, she was not interviewed until three days later.

While speaking to reporters, Detective Captain Al Thimmesch stated that he saw no link between Nancy Fox's murder and the killing of Shirley Vian.
