I have seen this photo around over the years and it has always fascinated me. Of course, Bundy was drawn to petite beauties and this young woman was no exception. This photo was taken circa 1975 after a birthday party. I don’t know if the party was for Bundy (which would mean it was November), or someone else.
I’ve often wondered just who was the woman in the photo. She doesn’t appear to have been a victim (at least I’ve never seen a reference to her as such) but no information is out there about this picture. It would be interesting to find out more about her, but she probably hasn’t been identified to allow her privacy.
Ted certainly has a saucy smirk on his face, as if he’s thinking of what she would look like passed out on the floor of his VW bug. In fact, one of the detectives or profilers who interviewed Bundy said that he thought about murder 24 hours a day. It was all-consuming and he seldom thought of anything else.
If anyone knows any details about this photo, I would love to know more about it. Simply reply to this post and I’ll update it. Until then, we only have what we can see and what we see is simply disturbing.
I’ve verified the woman’s name is Carol Bartholomew.
