Osage County Cold Cases Possibly Linked to BTK Killer

 A pair of unsolved murders may be linked to the BTK serial killer.

 The Osage County Sheriff's Office conducted a search of the property of where Dennis Rader, otherwise known as the B-T-K Killer used to live in Park City, Kansas, on Tuesday. The search revealed that investigators believe Rader is the prime suspect in an Osage County cold case regarding Cynthia Dawn Kinney from 1976 and the death of 22-year old Shawna Beth Garber from 1990, a crime committed in Missouri. 

Osage County Undersheriff Gary Upton said Rader's journal entries indicated that he was out of the Wichita area when Kinney went missing and he explains in further detail why he thinks Rader was involved in the Kinney case, who disappeared from the Pawhuska laundromat.

On Tuesday, investigators found “items of interest,” but Upton said they did not find bones, or bodily remains. This is an ongoing investigation.
