The bite-mark that convicted Ted Bundy.
Ted Bundy’s Victims
The true number of victims that Theodore Robert Bundy claimed is still unclear. The estimated amount is about 35, however, many believed that it had to be higher. The true number could be well over 100.
A total tally of 36 was once made to Bundy by the FBI during an attempt to make him confess. To this, Bundy responded with, “Add one digit to that, and you’ll have it”. No one understands exactly what he meant by this, whether it be 37, 136, or even 360 victims. It is also possible he was exaggerating.
Only Bundy truly knew how many murders he committed, and he carried it to his grave.
Serial Killer Consultant: Ted Bundy.
In October 1983 Ted Bundy, who was sitting on death row, offered to help the task force find the Green River Killer; A serial killer at large at the time. The lead detectives met with Bundy who gave insight into the mind of a serial killer.
Bundy said that the killer likely knew some of his victims. He also said more victims were probably buried in the dumping areas where victims had been found. Bundy also put a lot of significance into the different areas the bodies had been left, suggesting that each cluster or spot was set closer to the killer’s home.
Excerpts from the 1984 interview with Detective Robert Keppel (regarding the Green River Killer):
- ”..This guy is responsible for twenty or thirty more deaths at least, and there’s a certain aspect of possessiveness in that. I think that’s one way of describing it in rather bland terms, a possessiveness where the corpse could easily be as important as the live victim, in some respects. I mean, its that physical possession and ownership, a taking, if you will, that is just part of the syndrome. I think that sense of power and ownership is one of the reasons why I think in some cases—not all, certainly—is why I think he might be individually intending to return to the scene to either view his victim, or in fact, interact with the body in some way.”
- "In my opinion, the best chance you have of catching this guy is to get a site with a fresh body and stake it out."
- ”..Just like anybody else with an obsession, whether it be fishing, bowling or skiing, he has ways he can vicariously satisfy it. Maybe he is going to peep shows and reading detective magazines. I think there’s an excellent chance that one way he gets off is by going to look at what they call the slasher films.”
- "This guy doesn’t want to be caught. He doesn’t want to play around. He’s not Son of Sam and he’s not even the LA Hillside Strangler. He doesn’t want notoriety. That’s why he’s going to all these length to dispose of these people in the way that he has."
