Did Ted Bundy have a mental illness?
From the time of his arrest to his execution Ted Bundy had been studied by the best, had been tested, probed, x-rayed ect. and the conclusion was he was as sane as anybody else. What Bundy had is called a personality disorder, not a mental illness. Because of his grusome crimes people tend to think he would have to be nuts to do the things he did. Not so. He had a major defect in his personality. And it can't be treated or altered. His personality was what it was.
Studies of have shown the many killers have abnormal frontal lobes (brain) which control impulses. But it is not clear if the brain causes the behaviour or the behaviour diminishes the brain's frontal lobes. There is so much that is not clear and only with continued study will we ever have the hope of maybe someday preventing and understanding these types of killers.
His disorder is actually called Anti-Social PErsonality Disorder. It has many symptoms. Lack of remorse for others safety and well-being. Repeated lying and occurences with the law, and agressivness towards people who are around. They will also have difficulity consinting to social norms.
It is very common in serial killers or people who sometimes hurt small animals for pleasure/fun.
