Theodore Robert Bundy

November 24, 1946 – January 24, 1989

in the beginning
In the Beginning
  • After his birth in 1946, Bundy was led to believe that his mother was his sister and his grandparents were his parents. Some think that he was led to believe this because there was an incest relationship between his mother and grandfather.
  • This was the only known trauma in his young life.
  • His mother had his last name changed several times for various reasons throughout his childhood.

  • Reportedly, Bundy was confused about whether his mother, Eleanor, was really his mother or his sister. She continued to claim him as nothing but a sibling, but he called her both a mother and a sister.
  • Although Bundy didn’t have great relationships with everyone in his family, there were no reports of any kind of abuse or serious problems during his childhood.

  • Melanie Cooley-18 years old. She was found choked with her hands bound.
  • Lynette Culver-Only 13 years old. She was kidnapped from her school playground, and her body was never found.
  • Susan Curtis- 15 years old. She was abducted while attending a youth conference at Brigham Young University.
  • The police had collected many clues. They used a program on their computer to narrow the suspects down to only twenty-five people. They were paying very close attention to these people and were interviewing them one by one.
  • Ted Bundy was next on the list when a cop happened to see a suspicious car parked on the street at night, which happened to be Bundy’s. Bundy tried to drive away at first, but the police officer caught up to him. When the officer looked inside the car and noticed that there was no passenger seat, he decided to search it.
  • Inside the car, the cop found a satchel of burglary tools, a mask made of panty hose, and ice pick, and handcuffs.
  • Bundy was arrested for police evasion.
  • After he was released, cops began to link him to the DeRonch case. DeRonch was a woman who Bundy had previously tried to abduct. She escaped unhurt.
  • He was arrested for possession of burglary tools. The police searched his home and found nothing but maps.
  • Although DeRonch could not identify Bundy as the man who had assaulted her, he was charged and arrested for it.
  • Bundy was sentenced to 1-15 years in jail for aggravated assault.
  • The main purpose of holding him was to give the police time to get evidence together to try him for murder.
  • DeRonch now identified Bundy as her attacker, and several other people linked Bundy to various murders.
further investigation
Further Investigation
  • Bundy’s girlfriend Liz Kendall was interviewed and gave reports of Bundy’s odd behavior, weird possessions, rough sexual habits, and nocturnal tendencies.
  • His car matched the description of the one used to abduct DeRonch. The clues were piling up.
  • Caryn Campbell’s hair was found in a search of Bundy’s car.
  • All evidence pointed to Bundy, and police were sure of his guilt.
trial almost
Trial.. almost
  • Bundy awaited the Campbell trial in Jail.
  • When it was almost time for the trial, Bundy fired his lawyer and decided to defend himself.
  • During his loosely supervised trip to the courthouse on June 7, 1977, Bundy leapt from the courthouse window and escaped on foot.
the great escape which lasted all of six days
The Great Escape (which lasted all of six days)
  • After leaping from the window, Bundy escaped into the woods.
  • Despite the many search parties and dogs looking for Bundy, he could not be found.
  • He soon became lost in the woods, and he wandered around for a few days not knowing what to do.
  • He then found a car, stole it, and was caught driving crazily down the road.
back in jail
Back in Jail
  • Bundy was re-arrested for burglary, escape, and theft.
  • It was soon declared by the court that he was not eligible for the death penalty.
a slightly better great escape
A Slightly Better Great Escape
  • Bundy decided to try to escape one more time before his next trial.
  • He spent a lot of time planning this escape, and ended up getting a 17 hour head start before the guards noticed he was gone.
  • He then made his way to Florida where he soon killed six more people, one of which was only twelve years old.
  • Bundy was soon arrested once again. He resisted arrest as best he could, but was eventually restrained and taken in.
final days
Final Days
  • Bundy’s trial began after about a year after his arrest.
  • There was no use in defending him, as there was substantial evidence connecting him to multiple crimes.
  • He was sentenced to death, but despite this, he was tried again for another murder. The murder of Leach.
  • In order to try to prevent his current girlfriend from being questioned during the case, he proposed to her in the middle of the trial. Although she wasn’t questioned, Bundy was still ruled guilty.
  • His final death sentence was issued, and Bundy did everything he could to fight it. He did a series of interviews in his last few days. No one wanted to help him, so on January 24, 1989, Bundy was executed in the electric chair.
