In a revealing discussion on the podcast "Hidden Killers," Tony Brueski seeks insights from former felony prosecutor and attorney, Eric Faddis, about the murky waters surrounding decades-old cold cases, the BTK killer, and the intricacies of investigative processes. Their conversation casts a light on the somber realities facing the families who seek closure and the complexities entangled within the legal framework.
The District Attorney's recent decision to hand over investigations to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) regarding a case from 1976 has rekindled the public's interest. But as Faddis points out, "Sometimes those entities are not as adept in terms of investigating homicides. They do a lot of lab work, analysis, and ballistic stuff, but they don't always do on-the-ground investigation."
Dennis Rader, infamously known as the BTK killer, has been a name associated with numerous chilling crimes. His association with the 1976 case brings forth the question: "Is there another victim? If in fact, he is the guy and he is behind bars or if it is someone else out there again, we're talking about 1976, does it really go high in the priority list of the OSBI to investigate this?" Brueski poses.
Faddis offers a pragmatic perspective, suggesting that while this case carries national prominence, it is not certain if authorities will invest significant resources into it, especially when the main suspect, BTK, is already behind bars.
The conversation takes an even darker turn when discussing the "trophies" that BTK mentioned in a 2008 letter he wrote from prison. Sheriff Eddie Bearden affirmed that the locations provided by BTK were being investigated to recover those "trophies". Brueski's poignant question resonates deeply: "2008 is when this letter was written... why didn't we look into some of these things sooner? Why now?"
Faddis's response highlights an unsettling reality, "Hearing BTK refer to these things as trophies was just… I shudder when I hear that word. It's dehumanizing, callous, and horrible." The fact that these leads are only being pursued now raises significant concerns about lost time and potentially missed justice.
As they delve deeper, both Brueski and Faddis touch on a heart-wrenching truth: the delay in investigations potentially robs already victimized families of any sense of closure or justice. "It's just heartbreaking to see that just the passage of time could have divested those victims and their families from the justice they so deserve," laments Faddis.
In the end, while the podcast episode offers no straightforward solutions, it brings to the fore vital questions about the priorities of law enforcement agencies, the complexities of navigating old cases, and the unending pain endured by families that are still waiting for justice. Whether the OSBI will prioritize this case and bring answers remains to be seen, but the discussion serves as a somber reminder that justice delayed can often feel like justice denied.
