Life in the Limelight
Paula Dietz married Dennis Rader in May 1971. At this time, Rader was schooling and working at Leekers IGA Supermarket. He had just finished serving in the US Army, where he worked between 1966 and 1970. This couple got blessed with two children, Brian and Kerri.
Between 1974 and 1988, her husband worked with ADT Security Services, which meant that he would help install security cameras across various homes. Unknown to many, it was an opportunity for Rader to scout for victims to kills. Since he was serving as the president of the local Lutheran church congregation, it was easy for him to disguise himself.
Rader embraced the nickname BTK Strangler, which stood for bind, torture, and kill. He then went on a killing spree right from 1974. Usually, he would detail how he was to kill his victims and even kept several mementos. Besides that, Rader wrote to the police to highlight how he killed his victims. It was not until 2005 that the law caught up with him. Dietz divorced him shortly after.
Paula has an approximated net fortune of $40,000. Her primary source of income was bookkeeping.
