Theodore Robert Cowell or formally known as "Ted Bundy". Bundy was born in 1946 on November 24th and was executed by electric chair in 1989 on the 24th of January. Bundy was an infamous serial killer, who killed between 29 and 100 women.
Bundy was born in Vermont and later transferred to Philadelphia to live with his biological grandparents. As a child Bundy remained shy and conservative and was involved with a local troop of Boy scouts of America. He was only 13 when he discovered 'dirty magazines'. Later on in High School he enjoyed seeing women being tortured and murdered.
Bundy graduated fro Tacoma Woodrow Wilson High School in 1965. He was awarded a scholarship by the University of Puget Sound and he took courses in psychology and Asian studies. Bundy claimed to have said in an interview with James Dobson when referring to this chapter in his life that seeing women being tortured by other men was not enough. He wanted to be in control of the mutilations. Thus he was referring to getting involved.
As he was a serial killer the way he murdered the women was done in the same way. He would bludgeon and sexually assault his victims. His first victim was in 1974. It was recorded that he killed 9 women in Washington, 4 in Utah, 6 in Colorado and 3 in Florida. In Washington when committing these murders it was said that Bundy had stolen a Volkswagen Beetle. He would walk around the campuses of several universities in Washington with a cast around his legs, here by getting sympathy form the women that walked around campus. The women would offer their help and by his car he would have murdered them and thrown their bodies in a near by river.
Whilst committing his last murders in Florida, Bundy stole another Volkswagen Beetle and headed across the Florida Panhandle.
Bundy was pulled over by Officer Davis Lee. After checking documents, David arrested Bundy for the stolen vehicle. Days later Bundy was connected to several murders. At his trial he confessed to all the murders.
Bundy was sentenced to death. The night before Bundy was executed, he gave a television interview to James Dobson where Bundy several times repeated the pornographic roots to his crimes.
The local time for execution was 7:06 am on January the 24th in 1989. He was executed with the electric chair. There were more than 2000 volts applied across his body for less than 2 minutes. He was pronounced dead at 7:16am
This is what violent pornography has done to society. There could be a lot more Bundy's out there in the world. And scientists have said that this behaviour reflects off violent movies, violent play station games and pornography
