How did Ted Bundy Die?

1 Answer

  1. Ted Bundy is regarded as one of the most deadliest and dangerous serial killers in America who was responsible for the murder, rape, and kidnapping of more than 30 women during the 1970s. As a young man, Ted was a handsome and charismatic individual who would always dress up nicely and could easily attract young women.

    Even after committing numerous murders and rapes, Ted Bundy was never under the police radar until he moved to Salt Lake City in 1947. Once, he was driving early morning in his with the lights switched off on his VW Beetle when a patrol office asked him to stop and he did not. The police arrested him for disobeying but later found a gym bag in his car which had a ski mask, some torn sheets, an ice pick and handcuffs which resembled the ones earlier used in the attack of Carol DaRonch. Bundy was caught and was put on trial for murder.

    He escaped from the prison twice, once from Aspen, Colorado, and the second time from Glenwood Springs in Colorado. The guards reported that Bundy did not eat for several days and lost a significant amount of weight which enabled him to escape easily from a narrow ventilation duct.

    However, he was caught again during a chase in Pensacola, Florida, and was found guilty of murdering two women and also a 12-year old minor girl. He was awarded the death penalty for his crimes. He was finally executed on January 24, 1989, by an electric chair at the Florida State Penitentiary.

    The Netflix movie “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” with Zac Efron playing as Ted Bundy depicts a lot about his life and also his girlfriend. Another documentary called the “Ted Bundy Tapes” reveals a lot about Ted’s life with real footage.
