Dennis Rader: Serial Killer?

  • Dennis Rader exemplifies many of the characteristics of a serial killer. He has a M.O. and he continually kills. In his earlier years, he displayed cruelty to animals, which is one of the keys to the Macdonald triad. In an interview, Rader said he received pleasure from watching his victims die. This is called sadomasochism. These are all vital in the description of a serial killer, and Rader possesses all of these.
