Curious visitors are reportedly flocking to the former Utah home of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy. The home’s new tenant is apparently fed up.
TMZ reports that the new tenant of Bundy’s former Salt Lake City home said that the frequency of visitors increased after the release of Netflix’s “Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes” and the trailer release of the new film “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.” Bundy lived at the residence during the mid-1970s while he attended law school nearby.
While some visitors simply take pics of the residence and leave, others are allegedly walking onto the property to look at the fire escape Bundy used when trying to come and go without detection. Surrounding residents are getting annoyed with the intrusions as well, according to the tenant, and shut their blinds when lurkers arrive.
While people usually limit their visits to the home to Halloween, the tenant told the outlet that it’s now happening non-stop.

Bundy rented an upstairs apartment of the residence. The infamous serial killer may have actually taken some of his victims to his apartment in the home, although it’s largely an urban legend.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Bundy raped and killed at least five teen girls in Utah, including,
- Natalie Wilcox, 17
- Laurie Ann Aime, 17
- Melissa Smith, 17
- Susan Curtis, 15
- Debi Kent, 17
Utah was one of several states where Bundy carried out his reign of terror. He’s also been connected to the murders of young women in Oregon, Washington, Colorado, and Florid. According to Biography, experts believe Bundy may killed over 100 women, although he only admitted to 33 murders.
