His moniker of BTK was also his method of killing-- Bind, Torture, and Kill.
On April 27, 1985 Rader claims he stalked Marine Hedge who lived nearby and broke into her house and hid until she returned home. In court Rader said Hedge returned home with an unknown male, during which time he remained hidden until the guy left. Rader then proceeded to sneak into her bedroom armed with his killing kit (a black bag, that contained a rope,plastic bags, a knife and a gun) Rader then flipped on the bathroom light causing her to scream. Rader says he then proceeded to strangle her manually. Rader said he casually knew Hedge because they were neighbors.
