I believe that church was ELCA as well and he was an elder, not a Pastor.
But, my rememberer isn’t as good as it used to be!
Rader was Prident of the Parish Council, a Boy Scout leader, and contributed his famous spaghetti sauce to the potluck dinners there.
He also took the corpse of one victim inside the Fellowship Hall, where he further abused it, posed it, and took photos taken into evidnce by the police.
Not to rag on the Lutherans. There have been plenty of Catholic, Methodist, and Presbyterian serial killers, too.
