The BTK Killer broke into Anna's home, but tired of waiting for her. She narrowly escaped becoming his 8th victim.
Wichita police just released new evidence in the case of the BTK Killer. A poem that vividly describes just how lucky one Wichita woman was.
On April 28, 1979, 63-year-old Anna Williams left her Wichita home for the evening and went out to a dance. Anna was a single woman who lived alone. It wasn't an eventful night for her -- just a pleasant evening with friends.
But while Anna was out, a man cut the phone lines to her home and broke in. And then he waited for Anna to return. He waited, and waited, and waited. Meanwhile, Anna was still out enjoying her friends. Finally he tired of waiting. He left. And that was the moment that Anna Williams became the luckiest woman in Wichita.
Two Months Later - A Strange Letter
When Anna arrived home that night she called police and reported a burglary.It didn't seem like a big deal. Not much was missing. Then two months later Anna received a strange letter. It was reportedly addressed in neat block letters. Across town TV station KAKE received a similar envelope. Other than the writer himself, only police and the people who opened those envelopes that day know exactly what they contained.
Here's what is known. The envelope was from Wichita's infamous BTK Killer. In it he let Anna know that she was intended to be his 8th victim.
Just this week, police released new evidence from that mailing. On a page neatly typewritten, then photocopied BTK included a poem. Although police speculate that BTK might actually have been watching and targeting Anna's granddaughter, who had visited her the day before, it was to Anna herself that BTK wrote his macabre poem titled,Oh, Anna Why Didn't You Appear.
