Baton Rouge Serial Murders

Theodore Robert Bundy born November 24, 1946, Burlington, Vermont, U.S. died January 24, 1989, Starke, Florida Ted Bundy: Alias: Chris Hagen. Serial murderer and rapist, one of the most notorious criminals of the late 20th century in the US.

Bundy was born out of wedlock and spent his early years ih Vermont living with his grandparents. After his mother took custody of him and remarried she raised him as her younger brother. He grew up in the north end residential area of Tacoma, WA where he was a Boy Scout. He had a difficult relationship with his stepfather; and his shyness made him a target of bullying. Bundy's killer instincts may have started when he was a 14-year-old paperboy. Ann Marie Burr, an 8-year-old girl, mysteriously disappeared in the middle of the night and has never been found. After he graduated from the University of Washington he attended the University of Washington Law School while doing charity work and campaigning for the US Republican Party. He developed a series of normal relationships with women.

Between 1974 and 1978 he raped and killed young women in Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Utah, and Florida. He confessed to 28 murders, but estimates make him responsible for hundreds of deaths.

Bundy became a celebrity, following his escape from custody in Colorado in 1977. His charm and intelligence drew public attention. His case inspired a series of popular novels and films devoted to serial murder; which outraged feminist criminologists, who felt Bundy was romanticized by the media.

Following a well-publicized trial, in 1979 he was sentenced to death for the murder of two college students; the following year he was sentenced to death, for the rape and murder of a 12-year-old girl. Bundy gave his only death row interview to founder of Focus on the Family, a California-based ministry that later moved to Colorado Springs. He was put to death in Florida's electric chair on Jan. 24, 1989, for the sex slaying of Kimberly Leach, 12, hours after he told Dr. James Dobson, that unless society deals with pornography that depicts violence "lots of kids . . . are going to be dead tomorrow."

Bundy's known victims are as follows:

Fact: Bundy was accused of the murder of Kathleen Merry Devine, 15, who disappeared while hitchhiking to Oregon on November 15, 1973. While trying to avoid execution, he confessed to crimes, but swore he was innocent in the murder of Devine. In March of 2002, William E. Cosden, Jr. was arrested for the murder based on DNA evidence preserved from the Devine case. He has been tried and found guilty.

Fact: In 1984, King County officials acknowledged losing the remains of Denise Naslund and Janice Ott, victims of serial killer Ted Bundy. In 1987, King County paid $224,000 to the victims’ families to settle lawsuits.
