Today in Crime History: Vicki Wegerle is Murdered by the BTK Serial Killer

On September 16, 1986, BTK claimed his ninth known victim, Vicki Wegerle. Police, however, suspected her husband, Bill Wegerle, who failed two polygraph tests during the investigation. Wegerle was never arrested, living instead under a cloud of suspicion for nearly 20 years, until BTK resurfaced and Dennis Rader was arrested for the murders.
