Q&A with crime writer, Fabien Richard

"Not paying homage to the victims would be the biggest mistake. Behind each attack or each murder there is a victim. It is important that we pay tribute to those who died."

Bundy and the 1970’s investigation

During an era where serial killers were emerging as a phenomenon in the United States, police departments throughout the country were finding it difficult to identify them. Serial killers are known for primarily murdering strangers and having few ties to their victims. This makes it a very difficult job for investigators who are accustomed to... Continue Reading →

My Relationship with Ted Bundy

I'm involved in an abusive relationship with a dead man. Metaphorically-speaking, of course. I am constantly thinking about, imagining, and reading about a violent serial killer. His ice blue eyes and wavy brown hair call forth feelings of both compassion and revulsion. I am both drawn to and repelled from this handsome charmer, moonlighting as... Continue Reading →

Ted Bundy: The Politician

​As the United States comes to the end of yet another sensational presidential election, it's important to remember that often many members of our political system hide parts of themselves from the public. How many scandals have disgraced someone we thought trust-worthy? We read articles about various well-respected women and men who weren't at all... Continue Reading →

Bundy’s Father Figures

It's true that Ted Bundy was both drawn to and repelled by women. Clearly his relationship with his mother and other female relatives influenced his preferred victim type. However, the male role models in Bundy's life were just as influential in how he identified himself in relationship to the women around him. Through analyzing the... Continue Reading →

Ted Bundy -Quintessential Lust Killer

The term "lustmorder" or "lust murder" in English, was coined in the 19th century by German psychiatrist Richard von Krafft-Ebing, after decades of studying sex criminals in local asylums. Lust murder is defined by Wikipedia as "a homicide in which the offender searches for erotic satisfaction by killing someone." In fact, many of us assume that the... Continue Reading →

Bundy Quote Analyzed

"I don't like being locked up for something I didn't do, and I don't like my liberty taken away, and I don't like being treated like an animal, and I don't like people walking around and ogling me like I'm some sort of weirdo, because I'm not."  Long before Ted Bundy admitted to committing several...

Now ThAt’S Crazy-

Amazing poem about our old pal, Ted!

The writer's blogk

Ted Bundy Ted Bundy

Our monsters don’t look

like monsters

There is no way to tell

If they’ll share a slice of Heaven

or bring the hate of Hell

They don’t all have dangerous killer looks

they are not all uneducated and despise books

Look at Ted, a prime example

of a learned man who was extremely harmful

Ted Bundy, yes

he was an educated man

but not smart enough

to avoid the hang man

Then there’s really insane

Like Mr Ed Gein

who danced in the moonlight with his mother’s skin on his face

Bundy and the Electric Chair

[Thanks to Rob T. for suggesting this topic] Throughout human history, punishment by death has been used as disciplinary action against those convicted of gruesome or outrageous crimes. In the United States, unlike other countries, capital punishment is only utilized against those convicted of murder in the 1st degree. In a 2010 Gallup poll, 64% of Americans... Continue Reading →

The “Ted Murders”

It has always astounded me that Bundy used his real name when introducing himself to victims. It wouldn't have been such a big deal if the victims were isolated, but when he was seeking out women at Lake Sammamish in the summer of 1974, he gave his name to several women. Most of those women... Continue Reading →

Rose By Any Other Name

A lot of people have asked me about Ted Bundy's daughter with his wife, Carole. Rose Bundy was born in October 1981 and was the spitting image of her father. Raiford prison does not allow conjugal visits, so a lot of people have posited theories regarding how Carole got pregnant. The most popular theory is... Continue Reading →

Why Did Ted Bundy Kill?

I wanted to kill." ~Ted BundyPeople love asking me why I think Ted Bundy was a serial killer.   There are many ways to interpret this question, but here are my thoughts.  Based on Bundy's troubled relationship with his mother (he thought she was his sister for many years), his childhood living with his...

Ted Bundy: Rape Crisis Volunteer

Yes, you read that title correctly. Ted Bundy worked in a crisis center hotline in the '70's, helping young women talk through difficult situations. Bundy later wrote a rape prevention pamphlet and he was an assistant director of the Seattle Crime Prevention Advisory Commission. It's easy to see that Bundy found a way to be... Continue Reading →
