Police are keeping tightlipped about their hunt for BTK, but did say they are focusing on the first murder, from more than 30 years ago, to help with the investigation. BTK murdered the Otero family on Jan. 15, 1974, killing two kids and both parents.
Since BTK’s return we’ve watched mace fly off the shelves and an increase in security alarm sales. On Sunday, some Wichitans attended a seminar to help them learn about personal safety.
The “Refuse to Be A Victim” seminar focused on proactive approaches to personal safety. It’s something that’s on many people’s minds since BTK resurfaced.
Many in attendance at the seminar haven’t felt safe in the past two weeks since BTK’s return.
Thirteen attended the seminar to learn more about personal safety. While BTK motivated the seminar, it’s about safety in all aspects of life.
“It’s a lifelong personal safety strategy that we’re talking about, it’s not a one-time thing. It’s about going to the bank and being safe. It’s about taking your trip overseas and being safe. It’s about living in your home and being safe,” says seminar instructor Christine Heinsohn.
Some say the information will help them long after BTK’s gone.
