Dolores Davis' house - The BTK Killer.

On January 19th, 1991, serial killer Dennis Rader murdered 62-year-old Dolores Earline Davis at this location in Park City, Wichita.

Nowadays, the house no longer exists. Judging by Google Street View images, it was demolished at some point between 2012 and 2019.

Rader was unable to find an easy way into Dolores' house.

According to Rader, he spent time casing Davis' home in the lead-up to the murder. However, he was unable to figure out a way to enter the premises without alerting her.

As a result, he deviated from his usual M.O. of using stealth by throwing a cinder block through her patio door while she was inside.

When Davis heard the noise, she came out of her bedroom thinking that a car had crashed into the side of her house. At that point, Rader confronted the startled woman and told her that he was on the run from the authorities.

He then explained that he was going to handcuff her while he stole some food and the keys to her car.

The murder.

While she was handcuffed, Rader spoke to her and managed to calm her down. He also walked into the kitchen and pretended to steal some food.

After convincing his victim that he was leaving, he removed the handcuffs and then retied her using a piece of rope. However, instead of leaving, he proceeded to strangle Dolores to death with a pantyhose.

Rader's decision to soothe his victim even after she was immobilized is telling. This is something that he didn't really need to do.

Because Rader was a sadist, it is likely that he got a perverse kick out of calming his victims down and convincing them that they were going to survive. By doing this, he was able to witness their shock and terror once he revealed his true intentions. Inflicting this kind of psychological torture would have undoubtedly added to his "sexual high".

Following the murder, BTK drove Dolores out to a rural area and dumped her body underneath a bridge.
