What would process people to want to profit from the souvenirs of the BTK serial killer in Kansas? Moreover, why would people want any of this man’s belongings? The Mayor of Park City, KS warned potential souvenir hunters with any bright notions that any souvenir hunters caught with pieces of the BTK serial killer, Dennis Rader’s former home will be prosecuted “with glee.”
On Friday, at least one seller on eBay offered to ship a box full of wood purported to be from the interior walls of Rader’s home. The online auction site also had a posted picture of a demolished structure, though Rader’s home is still standing.
The auction was to end next Wednesday, but eBay posted a notice Friday afternoon that said bidding had ended with no bids received.
It was not immediately clear whether eBay or the seller stopped the auction.
Catherine England, an eBay spokeswoman, said eBay prohibits auctioning so-called “murderabilia” out of respect for the families of murder victims and as part of its policy on offensive material.
