Have something to say or share about 's report?
BTK was one creepy dude. I have a friend who was a Sedgwick County sheriff’s deputy and when BTK was finally arrested he was house in solitary because of the high profile case. My friend said he was creepy asf because he showed no emotion for anything. He said he just sat in his jail cell content as could be and would read and play cards all day.
