Seller of home where BTK killed woman tells past

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The seller of a Kansas house where BTK serial killer Dennis Rader took a woman's life in 1985 says he is disclosing the murder to make sure any potential buyer doesn't have a problem with the home's past.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/16CEFC5) reports real estate experts think the seller is doing the right thing by letting buyers know what happened there, even though state law doesn't require such disclosure.

Rader told a judge in 2005 that he sneaked into the Park City residence and strangled 53-year-old Marine Hedge.

The former Park City compliance officer is serving a life prison sentence for 10 Wichita-area murders over three decades. He called himself BTK, which stood for "bind, torture, kill."

Rader's own Park City home was purchased by the city and torn down.
