Ted Bundy, one of America’s most notorious serial killers, was also a kidnapper, rapist, burglar, and necrophile who carried out crimes against dozens of young women and girls across the United States in the 1970s. Bundy’s killing spree was interrupted in 1977 when he was arrested and charged with a Colorado murder, but he escaped custody while being transported to a court hearing.
Bundy was caught again in Florida in 1978, but only after a brutal raid on a Florida State University sorority house in Tallahassee. Bundy confessed to 30 homicides, although it is suspected his death toll was much higher. Bundy was executed by the state of Florida in 1989.
