I think you are refering to Bundy's interviews with detectives during the time that the Green River killer was killing young women in Seattle, WA. They thought that Bundy might have been able to help pinpoint where and what the River killer might do next. Although it didn't catch the River killer,...
In fact he never was. Bundy was tried and convicted for 3 murders in Florida for which he was executed in the electric chair in January 1979. As his DOE (date of execution) got closer he offered to reveal where bodies were in an effort to stall death. The state of Florida was not buying it and he...

What Ted Bundy had was not considered a mental illness. He was not mentally ill. He was diagnosed as having APD or anti-social personality disorder. It is a personality disorder not a mental illness. People with APD basically have no empathy or feelings to other humans. People with this disorder...
I assume you are talking about the last time he was captured. The date was February 16, 1978 in Pensacola, FL. If Bundy had been a better driver he may not have been caught. He had bad driving habits.
This is hard to answer and be accurate. Bundy would never be honest about how many women he really killed. But by most accounts his murders started in Washington state. Then to Oregon, Utah, Colorado, Florida. This is probably not the whole picture but it does give a general idea of where he was at...
Stephanie Brooks was Bundy's on/off girlfriend for several years. Brooks was very worried after reading about the killer's description in the papers. She thought that it sounded like Bundy. After talking to the police, they reassured her that it was probably not her boyfriend, and she left the...

Yes. You are refering to the TV movie starring Mark Harmon called 'The Deliberate Stranger' from 1986. Google Mark Harmon as Ted Bundy and hit images and there you go. I thought Harmon did a fine job portraying Bundy and captured Bundy's creepyness without over-playing the part. Bundy was a...
I'm not sure Bundy had an actual address while in Summit Park. He was passing through and of course Bundy being Bundy, he couldn't pass an opportunity to abduct and murder a girl. If anyone can find an address for Bundy at this location, please share the knowledge.
This is a question that may never have an answer. Bundy never did give up all the names of his victims. When he was 14 and a paperboy, a young girl in his neighborhood went missing and was never seen again. Most experts seem to agree that this was Bundy's first kill. But its a very old case and...
It's important to understand how killers like Bundy operate. All of their lives they have 'dual' lives in a way. The one that nobody sees until its too late, and the one they show to the world. The one that enables them to walk among the masses, their true self hidden. They need this cover. Without...
Yes. he was. Just look it up on Wikipedia. Check the related links below and you could also read "The Stranger Beside Me" by Ann Rule. This best selling true crime writer worked with Ted Bundy at one point in her career. There are a number of other books available by other authors also.
At Ted Bundy's trial the prosecution relied heavily on bite marks left on one victim. Although this type of evidence has been criticized by many, in the case of Bundy, who had distinctive teeth and bite, it was enough along with much circumstantial evidence to get him the electric chair. ...
After Bundy's execution in Florida's electric chair in January of 1989 his wife changed her name and moved her and Bundy's daughter to an undisclosed location to start over. Sounds like a good idea to me.

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...
There are some differences of opinions on this question but the most poplular answer seems to be that Bundy used the 3rd person speech habit to distance himself from the crimes he committed. Instead of using the personal "I killed", or "I raped" when speaking of himself he would say "you kill" or ...
Nobody but Bundy knows, or knew. It is thought to be between 25 and 35, but Bundy hinted at many more. Always the control freak, he went to his death in Florida's electric chair, with his secrets intact.
Theodore Robert "Ted" Bundy, born Theodore Robert Cowell, was an American serial killer active between 1973 and 1978. Bundy was extradited from the Utah prison to Colorado for the trial. Serving as his own lawyer allowed him to appear in court without leg irons plus gave him an opportunity to move...
Bundy did claim that his downfall was due to viewing pornography. Although he did say it, I'm not sure if he really believed it. If he was nothing else, he was smart. He had an idea that he was not exactly 'normal'. It may have been easier to blame his problems on pornagraphy that admit he had much...
As far as I can tell Bundy's mother Louise is still living and may be living in a nursing home. I need to reseach this better and if she has died just recently, come up with a date of death and cause.
Blue, as listed in FBI files and Ted Bundy said in his court trial that his eye color was blue.
We're almost there. The Cowells didn't actually live in Philadelphia but a small city outside Philly. I'm still working on the number and street but they lived in Lafayette Hill, PA 19444 , which is in Montgomery county not Philadelphia county.
The only address that I could find in Utah is 1058 S.W. Temple.
The true crime section is based on true crime books and personal opinions are better left to the discussion section.
In my search for the facts there seems to be conflicting accounts of Samuel Cowell, Bundy's maternal grandfather. There is still some speculation whether Bundy was the result of an incestous relationship between Samuel and Bundy's mother Louise. DNA would put that story to bed for good if Louise...
Although he confessed to more than two dozen and was suspected of more than one hundred he was actually only convicted of three murders. Two sorority girls at the U of Florida and 12 year old Kimberly Leach.
There is no doubt that 'Stephanie' was Bundy's first love. But because he did have APD (anti-social personality disorder) the crush was all about him. After she broke it off with Bundy they reunited briefly. They became engaged and then Bundy broke it off, but he was cruel to her. He wanted to...
Besides Herbie The Love Bug, Ted Bundy's Volkswagon Bug is probably the best-known Bug in the world. The famous Bundy Bug with the passenger seat removed now resides at the National Museum of Crime and Punishment, on display for all to see. The car, a 1958 model was purchased by Bundy as a college...
Technically, Bundy was executed for his last murder, 12 year old Kimberly Leach. He would still have had to face the two counts of murder for the sorority girls at U of FL. But the road to execution is a long and arduous one. There are mandatory appeals that must be played out before a DOE (date of...
Among other strange habits and quirks, Bundy himself claimed to have something of a foot fettish. While on the run in Florida, he bought 30 pairs of socks.
Of course. Although I was not there to personally witness it, Bundy's knees gave out on his way to the 'chair' and was supported the rest of the way by the guards. I would say he was most definitely scared.
As far as anyone can tell Bundy killed only women. Even Bundy himself, who was talkative in the hope to delay his date with the electric chair never even hinted that he could have killed any men. It really wasn't his style. So it is safe to say that no Bundy killed only young women.

Under the test for cognitive insanity, a defendant must have been so impaired by a mental disease or defect at the time of the act that he or she did not know the nature or quality of the act, or,...

Bundy refered to this 'other self' as The Entity. The Entity committed all the murders, the monster inside himself. He had a strange way of speaking in the third person. So this lets Ted off the hook and he could still look at himself and think he was a great guy.
A little known fact about the infamous Ted Bundy, one that he refused to talk about was the decor of his apartment in Seattle, WA. After killing some of his victims he decapitated them and displayed them on shelves in his small apartment. I can only guess he didn't have many people over for drinks.
stragled or bludgened with a hammer. //Bundy's favored method was to first gain control usually by bludgening with a crowbar he kept in his infamous Volkswagon Bug. The murders he committed at the sorority house in Florida he used a piece of wood he had found right outside the house. After being...
The woman's identity has never been revealed. She is refered to by several different names. In the book The Stranger Beside Me, author Ann Rule calls her 'Stephanie'.

This surname dates back to the late 12th Century. Any script writer could choose this Surname for series.
Ted was a person that needed medical attention since his early days. Instead, he thought he was a smart person.

Psychopaths need no motive. It's a psychological disorder that compels them to kill, while there may be triggers (didn't like how someone smelled, someone picked a fight with them, etc). The motive itself can be excused with some manner of social commentary or poor upbringing, the truth remains that...

Bundy was into power and control. Even with his death only hours away he just had to keep something back. It was his way of getting the last word.
It probably didn't hurt. Although Bundy was crafty and pretty slick all on his own, degree or not. He was very cocky prior to the death sentences and even thought it a good idea to be his own attorney. He was actually only a first year law student before dropping out and became a killer on a full...
No. He was just a crazy crazy man. He was physically abused by his Father though.
Bundy was born to an unwed mother (Elenor Louise Cowell) on Nov. 24, 1946 in Vermont. Shortly after his birth Louise moved back to her parents home in Philidelphia, PA, where they lived for several years before moving to Washington state where Ted remained until law school.

Bundy was his own best PR man and his own worst enemy. I have seen this error many times on Bundy info sites. Bundy loved the cameras and the attention he received from the media. But he outsmarted himself when he broke the cardinal rule of law. He became his own attorney. Bundy was a dropout law...
By her own admission, Rule felt safer when she and Ted Bundy worked late nights at a Seattle crisis center. Rule was no 'slouch'. She was a former police officer and a true crime author, and was certainly no fool. But that is a testiment to how Jekyle/Hyde Bundy was. If he could fool the likes of...
