(Killings between 1974 and 1978)
Clean-cut serial killer Theodore "Ted" Bundy confessed to 28 killings, but other estimates indicate that he killed as many as 33 to 100 female victims during the 1970s. He proved that even the devil can be attractive. Ted was one of the most infamous serial killers in American history. He was very handsome, charming and cultured. He has raped and murdered numerous young women. He engaged in necrophilia, which is being sexually attracted to corpses. Often he sexually assaulted his victims with such instruments as crowbars or hairspray bottles.
However, later, many of his victims are said to have a physical resemblance to his first girlfriend.
One of the theories says that he started killing people as early as 14 years of age.
Theodore Robert Cowell was born in 1946 in Burlington, Vermont to an unmarried mother of 22 and gets his name from his stepfather, Bundy. He was made to believe by his grandparents that he was their son and his mother was his sister.
He was a good student who was devastated when his first love left him. He spent years trying to get her back and finally when he did, he started killing innocent people and then dumped his girlfriend just as she dumped him.
Bundy, a law student at one time, served as his own attorney, but his smooth talking was not able to escape a sentence of death.
He was executed in 1989 and confessed to 40 murders.
Before his execution, he revealed that his addiction to pornography led him to do what he did. He said that there are many people out there who were addicted and nothing is being done about them.
One of Bundy's famous quotes - "We serial killers are your sons, we are your husbands, we are everywhere. And there will be more of your children dead tomorrow."
