Born on November 24, 1946, Theodore Robert Bundy, also known as Ted Bundy, was an American serial killer who mainly targeted young girls during the 1970s. Ted Bundy abused, murdered, kidnapped 30 young women throughout his killing spree. He was suspected of 36+ crimes against young girls, and he admitted to 30 of them. He committed his crimes in seven different states, including California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.
Ted Bundy was often described as “charming and polite” and his charm was the reason he avoided getting caught as well as he did. Ted Bundy would often approach his victims in a public place and fake a injury. When the victim would offer to help, he would kidnap them. After Ted Bundy had murdered his victim, he would often visit their body. Since Ted Bundy brought all of his victims to the woods, all of the evidence needed to prove was eliminated.
Ted Bundy was present for multiple trails, but there was not enough evidence to prove him guilty until 1989 when he admitted to some of his killing and he was finally proved guilty. He was sentenced to the death penalty and was killed by elecrotucution in Florida.
Ted Bundy is described by many as, “heartless,” “evil,” “cold,” and “cruel.” He is known as a sociopath who took pleasure in his killings and also for the control he had over his victims before and after death. His crimes scared many people, including his family and many of the victims’ families.
