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
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
