Ted Bundy

Ted Bundy (November 24, 1946 - January 24, 1989) was an American serial killer who between 1974 and 1979 attacked about 2 dozen young women in Washington, Utah, Colorado and Florida. He is believed to have been a sociopath. He was intelligent, educated, personable, handsome, got along well with women, but nevertheless regularly brutally murdered them usually with a blunt instrument, sometimes by strangulation. Seldom seen, he seldom left any clues. Captured in Utah and convicted of assault he was extradited to Colorado. While on trial for murder he attempted escape twice, succeding the second time and fleeing to Florida. Convicted there of murder he was sentenced to death and executed in the electric chair.
