As is tradition in many countries, in the United States prisoners on death row can request a last meal before they are executed. In the event that they don't choose a special meal, they are given a standard meal. Each state generally has a limit on the amount of money they will allow for the... Continue Reading →
Ted Bundy certainly had a lot of women in his life. From his mother to his fiancée and later, his wife, they were a big part of his life. Why then, would Bundy want to kill so many females and did he really care for the women he didn't kill? To answer that question, we... Continue Reading →
During the summer of 1979, Ted Bundy went to trial for the deaths of 2 women in the Chi Omega sorority house at Florida State University. Though the state had compelling bite mark evidence to present a convincing case of guilt, they still put a witness on the stand. Nita Neary arrived at the Chi... Continue Reading →
What can you say about a 1968 Volkswagon Bug? You could say it was a tiny car with hardly any leg room, it wasn't a particularly flashy car, and its engine was in the back. VW Bugs had pretty good gas mileage, but nothing to write home about. You could also say that hardly any... Continue Reading →
While the rest of the world cringes in horror at the crimes committed by violent men, there are a select few women who are riveted by their stories. Ted Bundy had his share of fans and even married and produced a child with one of them. Both of the Menendez boys are married and even... Continue Reading →
"I just liked to 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... Continue Reading →
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 →
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),... Continue Reading →
After Bundy's failed escape from prison in July of 1977, he succeeded in breaking out of the Garfield County jail in Glenwood Springs, Colorado on December 30, 1977. He had lost a lot of weight and was able to squeeze out of a hole in the ceiling of his jail cell. Once outside the prison, Bundy hitched a ride... Continue Reading →
Bundy's first escape happened in Aspen, Colorado on July 7, 1977. He was supposed to be doing research for his trial in the murder of Caryn Campbell, when he jumped from the 2nd story law library and high-tailed it out of the area on a sprained ankle. He was able to steal a car, but... Continue Reading →
"You learn what you need to kill and take care of the details. It's like changing a tire. The first time you're careful. By the thirtieth time, you can't remember where you left the lug wrench."I find it interesting that Bundy could so easily compare the killing of a human being to the changing of a...

Ted Bundy was a necrophile, plain and simple. This wasn't something he wanted people to know, but he did admit it to Stephen Michaud & Hugh Aynesworth when they interviewed him in the 1980's. After killing a woman, he would take her to a secluded area (usually Taylor Mountain while he was still killing in... Continue Reading →
"The thought of burglary or anything really criminal...never crossed my mind. I felt no remorse whatsoever about taking something like that out of a store. I'd only take what I needed." (Confessions of a Killer, p. 35)
"I have always felt deprived of underwear. I always felt that I would have really made it if I had all the socks & underwear I could ever use." ~Ted Bundy, "Ted Bundy: Conversations with a Killer"
"I have known people who...radiate vulnerability. Their facial expressions say 'I am afraid of you.' These people invite abuse... By expecting to be hurt, do they subtly encourage it?" ~ Ted Bundy

Please join me in honest debate and discussion and please no hate speech toward the victims. Thanks, Em.
