*Includes pictures *Includes Bundy's own quotes about his life and crimes *Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading *Includes a table of contents "I'm the most cold-hearted son of a bitch you'll ever meet." - Ted Bundy "I don't think anybody doubts whether I've done some bad things. The question is: what, of course, and how and, maybe even most importantly, why?" - Ted Bundy For most people, Ted Bundy is the quintessential serial killer - a good-looking, highly intelligent man who used his charm to lure an untold number of women to their deaths. In fact, as the judge announced his death sentence, he noted Bundy's intellect and mused that he would have enjoyed hearing Bundy try a case before him had he remained simply the genius law student he had once been. Bundy, of course, ended up choosing a far different path, going on a historic crime spree during the 1970s so prolific that estimates of his kill count vary by dozens, a debate Bundy was only too happy to stoke. On one occasion, when the FBI estimated he was responsible for 3 dozen murders, Bundy replied, "Add one digit to that, and you'll have it." On another occasion, he claimed the estimate of 3 dozen was close to accurate. Whatever the actual number, what is known is that the murders ranged from coldly calculated approaches of women in public places to breaking into homes at night and bludgeoning victims to death. Bundy often kept mementoes to commemorate the crimes, ranging from victims' possessions to their severed heads. As is natural in cases like this, attempts to understand Bundy's pathology have been ongoing for decades, with separate diagnoses of narcissistic personality disorder and bipolar disorder, and one prison official described Bundy's changing personalities: "He became weird on me...Almost a complete change of personality ... that was the day I was afraid of him." Unfortunately, Bundy proved resourceful in other ways aside from committing murder. After he was initially caught in Utah in 1975 and being tried for attempted assault, murder charges were brought against him in Colorado, but Bundy escaped prison twice in succession, allowing him to commit an untold number of additional crimes until he was caught again in Florida in 1978. Shortly before his death, in an interview with the popular Christian psychologist Dr. James Dobson, Bundy blamed his problems on pornography and claimed to have found God and repented, yet he had noted in a letter in 1977 that he almost never looked at porn magazines, telling future biographer Ann Rule, "Who in the world reads these publications? ... I have never purchased such a magazine, and [on only] two or three occasions have I ever picked one up." . Regardless of his motives, after nearly a decade of denials, Bundy confessed to having killed at least 30 women across 7 states in just a 5 year period the decade before. In her work on the serial killer, Ann Rule labeled him "a sadistic sociopath who took pleasure from another human's pain and the control he had over his victims, to the point of death, and even after." Even a member of his own defense team, Polly Nelson, called him "the very definition of heartless evil." Ted Bundy: The Life and Crimes of One of America's Most Notorious Serial Killers looks at the life of the serial killer and the crimes he committed.

As you look back at Bundy's childhood after digesting what he did to his unknown number of female victims, then behaviors such as playing with knives and placing them around his sleeping aunt take on a new meaning.

Theodore Robert Bundy, popularly known as Ted Bundy was America's most notorious serial killer, a necrophilia, rapist, and kidnapper of 1970's who murdered and assaulted many girls and young women. Shortly before his execution, via electrocution, after over a decade of crime denials, he already confessed to his 30 committed homicides in seven different states between the years of 1974 and 1978. The real count of victim was left unknown, and this could possibly be much higher. Ted Bundy was viewed as charismatic and handsome by his female victims, which are the traits he exploited in order to completely win their trusts. Bundy, typically approached the victims in public places, pretending to have disability or injury, or personating an authority figure, before assaulting and overpowering them at secluded locations. Ted Bundy even revisits his crime scenes, grooming and performing some sexual acts with decomposing corpses of the victim until the destruction and putrefaction of wild animals made further the interaction impossible. He beheaded 12 known victims and even kept some of the head in his own apartment as mementos for a time period. Sometimes, he just simply broke into the dwelling at night and strikes to death his victims as they are as sleep. Ted was initially incarcerated in 1975 in Utah for attempted criminal assault and aggravated kidnapping. He became a suspect in progressively longer unsolved list of homicide in different multiple states. When facing his criminal charges in the state of Colorado, he planned 2 dramatic escapes and was able to commit more assaults, including 3 more murders before his 1978 ultimate recapture. Ted Bundy received 3 death sentences in 2 different trials for his Florida homicides. Ted died via electrocution at the Raidford Prison on the 24th of January 1989. He was described as the very sadistic sociopath who receives pleasure from other people's pain and suffering as well as the control he had over the victims, until death, and even after. As a matter of fact, Ted called himself as the most cold-hearted son of a bitch you will ever meet. Even his attorney called Ted as the very definition of a heartless evil.

New York Times Bestseller: From the journalists who covered the story, the shocking crimes of Gary Ridgway, America’s most prolific serial murderer. In the 1980s and 1990s, forty-nine women in the Seattle area were brutally murdered, their bodies dumped along the Green River and Pacific Highway South in Washington State. Despite an exhaustive investigation—even serial killer Ted Bundy was consulted to assist with psychological profiling—the sadistic killer continued to elude authorities for nearly twenty years. Then, in 2001, after mounting suspicion and with DNA evidence finally in hand, King County police charged a fifty-two-year-old truck painter, Gary Ridgway, with the murders. His confession and the horrific details of his crimes only added fuel to the notoriety of the Green River Killer. Journalists Carlton Smith and Tomas Guillen covered the murders for the Seattle Times from day one, receiving a Pulitzer Prize nomination for their work. They wrote the first edition of this book before the police had their man. Revised after Ridgway’s conviction and featuring chilling photographs from the case, The Search for the Green River Killer is the ultimate authoritative account of the Pacific Northwest killing spree that held a nation spellbound—and continues to horrify and fascinate, spawning dramatizations and documentaries of a demented killer who seemed unstoppable for decades.
