The daughter of serial killer Dennis Rader tells Inside Edition that she believes her father may have been in contact with accused University of Idaho murderer Bryan Kohberger.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Kohberger did have contact with my father through letter writing,”Inside Edition is told by Kerri Rawson. “It’s pretty well known that criminology students have a tendency to write well known, infamous killers.”
Rader, who nicknamed himself BTK (Blind, Torture, Kill), is a notorious serial killer who killed 10 people between 1974 and 1991 in Kansas, while sending letters to police and the media mocking them for their inability to arrest him for his crimes.
The serial killer was even able to collaborate with a renowned criminologist on a book about criminal minds after his 2005 arrest.
That criminologist is Dr. Katherine Ramsland, who is a professor of forensic psychology and criminal justice at DeSales University. This is the college Kohberger studied at for his undergraduate and graduate degrees.
Although there have been reports that Ramsland was one Kohberger’s teachers at the school, Inside Edition couldn’t verify that.
Kohberger has returned to Idaho and will be appearing before a judge there on Wednesday.
Kohberger, who is now a student at Washington State University and an instructor in their PhD program, claims he’s innocent of the burglary charges.
He was arrested in Pennsylvania on Friday for the November murders of Madison Mogen, 21; Kaylee Goncalves, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Ethan Chapin, 20.
