Transcript of BTK Killer
http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&q=btk+killer&bav=on.2,or.&wrapid=tlif129960654785710&safe=active&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&biw=1148&bih=663 Eleven-year-old Josephine Otero was known as "the new girl" among her sixth-grade peers at Adams Elementary School in the fall of 1973.
She started school after the term had begun -- something that tends to draw attention from a room full of 11- and 12-year-olds.
They called her Josie.
Josie was quiet and shy, but easygoing, remembers classmate Bill Partridge.
She would just laugh when some of the other kids would sing her the theme song from the "Josie and the Pussycats" cartoon, which was popular at the time.
Charlie Otero remembers his younger sister as pretty and thin with long dark hair.
Her given name was Josephine Estrella -- "Josie Star," he said.
She was the best student in the family. Despite holding a yellow belt in judo, she was deeply entrenched in her "girlie life." She liked her Barbie dolls. She wrote poetry. She painted and drew.
She was inseparable from her older sister, Carmen, the only other girl in the family.
"They were like two peas in a pod," Charlie said.
Josie could be sensitive, too. Charlie still remembers a sibling fight that ended with a tearful Josie accusing him of not loving her as much as he loved the rest of the family.
"It broke my heart that she even thought that for a second," he said.

Born in 1945, Dennis Rader was the mass murderer who had everyone in the town Wicthata Kansas, Living in fear for 1 year till he went into hiding and then 14 years later he came bak out to start his sick fantasys. JOSEPH OTERO II
Joseph Otero II was the baby of the family, but he wasn't babied.
Known as Joey, he was rarely left alone by his four older siblings.
"Joey was the darling of the family," his brother Charlie remembers. "Everybody played with Joey, used him for judo practice. We'd make the dog drag him around the house. But it was all in love."
At age 9, Joey quickly became one of the most popular boys in his fourth-grade class at Adams Elementary.
He started the school year late, and the girls in his class immediately became enamored of him.
"He was good looking -- Hollywood good looking," said Charlie, six years Joey's senior. "He had all kinds of girlfriends already. He had droves of them following him around."
Joey was athletically talented as well. He could ride his brother's minibike. He excelled at judo. And he could run like the wind.
"He was going to grow up to be the fastest kid," Charlie said.
The family dog, Lucky, was a gift to Joey on his fifth birthday. Though the shepherd mix could be ferocious to strangers, Joey loved him.
"All we had to do was sic Lucky on Joey," Charlie said, "and he'd grab him by the pant leg and drag him all over the house."

A 34-year-old mother of five, she was petite, weighing in at only about 100 pounds. And she was as sweet as an angel, Charlie said.
But her angelic exterior hid an inner fighter -- literally.
A longtime Air Force wife, Julie Otero signed her entire family up for summer judo classes being offered on the base. She saw the classes as something she and her kids could do together.
In no time, Julie was a brown belt and her children were winning trophy after trophy.
Charlie laughs when he remembers his tiny fighting mother.
"You'd see my 100-pound mom fighting these 160- and 180-pound women in tournaments," he said. "She was rough and tough, and she'd just deal with them.
"But she was a lady all the way."
Julie was mentally tough as well. Charlie still has visions of his mother dragging herself, her children and all their luggage through an airport as they traveled to join his father in the Panama Canal Zone, where he was stationed for seven years.
Born in Puerto Rico, Julie came to the United States on a banana boat as a child, her son said.
Outgoing, social and popular, she quickly caught the eye of Joseph Otero, who chased her for years. The two were married in a big church wedding in New York City, and Charlie was born "almost nine months later to the day."
When the family moved to Wichita, Julie took a job on the assembly line at Coleman. She was laid off about a month later in a labor force reduction. She was recommended for rehire.
Charlie adored his mother and remembers her as a devout Catholic who remained passionate about her culture.
"My mom would pay me a penny a word to speak Spanish to her," Charlie said. "She didn't want me to forget it."
She was also an excellent cook. She never made anything from a can, and she would prepare her kids anything they wanted for breakfast, from Belgian waffles to fritters.
"My mother was like an angel," Charlie said. "She didn't drink. She didn't get mad. All she cared about was making sure we had what we needed for life."
