    It was not a floppy disk that lead to his arrest.
    It was his voice on the payphone back in 1974 I believe it was.

    Just speculating

    According to all reports and the TV shows featuring the detectives, Rader was corresponding with a detective through the personal newspaper ads. He asked the detective if it was safe to send a floppy disc, and of course, the cops lied and told him yes. He sent it in with, I believe the name Dennis, and name of his church on the disc. Then, when interrogated he was all offended that the cop had lied to him. He may have eventually been caught though because he'd been spotted in his son's vehicle at Home Depot where he put one of his clues, but they couldn't make out a face or license number.

    That is correct, that is how they got evidence on him

    I need to rewind, perhaps. How can the apprehension of Rader be credited to you, Jack?
