Dennis Rader, convicted serial killer.

An Oklahoma sheriff confirmed he recently interviewed the notorious BTK Killer, Dennis Rader.

He’s serving ten life terms for killing ten people from 1974 to 1991.

Osage County Sheriff Eddie Virden said Sunday that he and his colleagues went to the Kansas prison in January where Rader is housed.

The sheriff says they wanted to determine if Rader had any connection to the disappearance of an Oklahoma teen who vanished from a Pawhuska laundromat in 1976.

According to the sheriff, during the same time period the BTK killer was committing murders just two hours away in Wichita, Kansas.

At this time, the sheriff says Rader isn’t an official suspect, meanwhile Rader is telling TMZ he had nothing to do with the girl’s disappearance.
