For Kerri Rawson, a room door in February 2005 would look like changing life for all the wrong reasons.
After that Rawson found out that the FBI had been arrested and killed by her father Dennis Rader that he was the person who had been arrested. BTK Killer – BTK stands for "connecting, torturing and killing." He again agreed that he killed 10 people – the majority by opposing the opposition – in Wichita, Kan., Between 1974 and 1991.
Rader Killer named BTK after sending letters to the police and local media where he was reporting deaths and police surveys; there. It was arrested on February, 25, 2005 after the police had been able to run it by doing it. Using data that left behind a red box sent it to a local TV station.
After Rader was arrested Rawson had been arrested, finding out the person she knew as her father, was a member of the Christian Church of Christ and local Cub Scout leader, had remained secretary life as a serial slaughter.
"First, I was in five days of a reward," Rawson told CTV News Channel Monday. "You're just trying to understand:" Why would the FBI be here? "You're shearing your brain."
Rawson's book, Serial Killer's Daughter: My Story of Faith, Love and Overcoming, describes how a very ordinary life came to & # 39; falling down and how she had been able to deal with the ordeal.
Rawson replied that she had been stressed after anxiety since her father was arrested and spent years in and out of the cure. She got out to put her thoughts into writing that was positive, which became a thought inside her book.
"I included everything I was going through and almost did not have to hide who it was," she said. "I was just enough and I started talking up in the Wichita, Kansas newspaper paper, and after I spoke out, I realized that there was power and cure in sharing my own story. "
Rawson says she still writes to her father several times a year, but he did not want to visit her in the # 39; jail.
"I'd like to see it before getting older – it's 73," she said. "It's my dad and I'm still happy with my dad. I would like to see it and save it once more."
Rawson says that she has been suffering from internet trolleys from her book, but saying that the reception has been very positive.
"I have a box on social media but just full of people who inspire me and inspire me," she said.
For almost 14 years, I was in this airport, I was afraid of my heart, flying to Kansas to be with my family.
Now I'll talk, and I'll; share, and keep my head. I am who I am.
Never give up, there is hope just around the corner.
