Posted on 02/26/2005 6:55:28 AM PST by gopwinsin04
Police have uncovered new evidence in the decades old BTK Wichita serial killer case and are questioning a person of interest, according to sources close to the investigation.
Authorities scheduled a news conferece for 11AM Eastern Saturday to make an announcement in the case, and relatives of the killers victims would be briefed beforehand.
Some police sources have said that a 59 year old man was arrested Friday and linked to the case by a DNA sample.
Surveillance activites gave police 'their first big piece' of recent evidence, leading authorities to a vehicle and the person of interest.
Investigators also searched a house in the Wichita suburb of Park City Friday, siezing computer equipment.

Excellent. Do you know if Kansas has the death penalty?
Computer equipment? So he was online. Interesting.
All over the news here in Wichita....
I call this guy a suspect.
Ann Coulter is a person of interest.
The death penalty was recently set aside in the state, so it's doubtful that he will get lethal injection.

This thread is loaded with great links to all information.
Congressman Tiahart, the Mayor, victims families, all the civic officals will be there..this is a victory lap
Have they released a name yet? Obviously some people in Wichita know his name, since they were interviewed as his neighbors.
He was a regular on DU
The death penalty is still here. It was only temporarily suspended for a few days for some reason.
Right, but wasn't there some kind caveat given to the Carr Brothers....something like, "OK, there's no more more death penalty, but we made an exception in your case."
I think 4 people are still gonna' get the needle...
Start at the end and go up..all info on the suspect on this thread.
It's Eshqire (how did that troll spell his posting name... or maybe Ash?)
Im surprised the Carr brothers are still around, they must be in the 'celebrity solitude' wing of Leavenworth.
There's even more on down the thread...larger picture near the end..I feel very sorry for his family..We think we can't be fooled..but we can.I went to the crime library site and read about the first multiple murder..Horrific.
That second pic doesnt look quite as friendly as the first..Palladin also said that computers were removed from the Park City library which was closed all dat..
Great news. Will be very interesting to see what this animal was up to for the past 20 years -
And how, might I ask, do you know that??
Atypical for serial killers that he would stop for such a long period of time..
There are unsolved murders up until at least 1991 and maybe later that are probably him. One victim lived down the block from him.
There are more unsolved cases going up to 1991?
C'mon, now, you know the rule!
Perhaps they should ship him to us barbaric Texans . . . we tend to enjoy taking care of society's waste.
Loved your "Deputy's" badge on your homepage! Can anyone get one of those or do you have to get some kind of . . . uugghhh! . . . "formal education?"
Agree. It will definitely be interesting to find out more - Was he in prison for awhile? - Did he commit other murders? - Etc.
Hopefully this is the guy and they got him - Sounds like he made a big mistake dropping one of those letters off (camera's nailed him - probably the security camera in a store across the street or something like that).
Yep. At least 2 between 85 and 91. They were never officially announced as BTK murders, but they were both close to this guy.
This is the description of the first murder..Like you, I can't imagine that he just "got it out of his system." and reformed...
His contact lately might mean he was feeling stressed, feeling the great urge again and wanted to be caught..or he just needed to feel important again..
He likes publicity.
Of course he lied about his personal information in letters he sent. He needs to feel powerful and striking fear in the hearts of citizens and fooling the police helped him feel that way.
He did mention that he didnt know if the killing would ever 'get out of his system,' maybe he took a 15 year vacation..
ANd maybe his vacation was to other states. Need to cross check his MO for deaths in those areas.
Good news at last.
One thing I'm not looking forward to is when the trials start, many details law enforcement kept secret will now be public knowledge. We're probably going to hear some of the most depraved stuff ever.
Other Boards are saying this is BTK 's (D.R.) own site, but its been taken down. Anybody know how to pull up a cached copy?
Looks like we'll know what Greta will be covering next!
Over here. I guess will soon Know if we were right last night.
CNN on it.Fox on it..Victims family are present..briefed about an hour ago.
I believe coverage on all cable channels..I see the auditorium filling up.
One day I told my mom if I ever go missing inform Gretta b/c she would report it until even she gets sick of it.:o)
I have FOX on, CNN will just say it is George Bush or Karl Rove.
You're right. We don't know anything about this guy yet. Let's not give the other side ammo they can use against us just for the sake of a cheap laugh.
FOX coverage coming on now.
Well.....they did recently have a Democrat POTUS...that more than likely WAS.
