From a young age, Rader harbored sadistic sexual fantasies of torturing trapped and helpless women. He spied on women's windows while dressed in women's clothing, including underwear that he had stolen, and did vulnerable things. For keeping his sexual proclivities well hidden, he was regarded in the community as a normal, well-mannered, and polite man. No one has imagined the killer was Kerri Rawson's father.
