Consider the serial killer Dennis Lynn Rader, known as the BTK murderer. “BTK” stands for “Bind, Torture, Kill.” He never raised any suspicions among his friends or family that he had a malevolent nature that involved kidnapping and murder.

“Elizabeth Smart, of Utah, was kidnapped at knife point at age 14 in 2002, sexually assaulted and held captive for nine months by a street preacher; Jaycee Dugard was kidnapped in South Lake Tahoe by a couple in 1981, when she was 11, and held for 18 years in tents and a shack in their back yard.”
Where are these kidnappers today? Smart’s kidnapper, Brian David Mitchell, was sentenced to life in prison. Dugard’s kidnapper, Phillip Craig Garrido, who pleaded guilty to Dugard’s kidnapping and sexual assault, was sentenced to 431 years imprisonment.
