"AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK" GOES ON THE HUNT FOR A KILLER WHO BINDS, TORTURES AND KILLS, SATURDAY, DEC. 11 ON FOX
Chat Live with the BTK Task Force Saturday Night at AMW.com
This Saturday, Dec. 11 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK profiles a serial killer who has resurfaced after 25 years. "BTK," which stands for "Bind, Torture and Kill," is the famous signature of a mad man who has killed at least eight people. Tomorrow night, AMW continues its hunt for the BTK Killer and invites viewers to join the BTK Task Force in a live on-line chat from 9:00 PM � 1:00 AM ET at AMW.com.
AMW host John Walsh follows in the killer's footsteps, going into the home of his first known victims and then, into a classroom at Wichita State University, where BTK may have once sat and hatched some of his twisted writings to police. Fears of Wichita residents have been reawakened after a serial killer who terrorized the community from 1974 to 1979 has again started communicating with local TV stations and newspapers. The killer's horrifying signature has been that victims are bound, tortured and then killed � leading to his name, the "BTK Killer."
After strangling an entire family in their home in 1974, the killer claimed three more lives through 1979. Following the murders, the monster sent letters and poems to Wichita media, claiming responsibility and promising more killings. Then, in 1979, the serial killer disappeared. But in March 2004, police say he began sending new letters, word games and photographs of victims' corpses.
AMW takes the manhunt to Wichita where Walsh hopes to draw the killer out of the shadows.
