Theodore "Ted" Bundy
We can’t talk make a serial killer list without mentioning Theodore "Ted" Bundy. This charming, handsome young deviant was a real lady killer in more ways than one.
Good looking, ruthless and cunning, Bundy has become the gold standard of evil the world over, as is evident by the sheer amount of books, movies, TV shows and podcasts that have chronicled his story. My favorite book about Bundy has to be The Phantom Prince: My Life With Ted Bundy - written by his girlfriend of 6 years.
Although he spent most of his childhood in Philadelphia, Bundy’s thirst for blood took him across the country throughout the 1970s. Ted Bundy murdered at least 30 people, and took victims in Ohio, Colorado, Idaho, Washington, Utah, Oregon, Florida and possibly California.
Ted had a thing for young, brunette coeds, and would often pretend to be injured in order to lure these unlucky women into his now-infamous VW Beetle. Once inside, Bundy would attack them with a crowbar, rape them, then strangle them to death in the woods. As he progressed, Bundy began to take more risks, even going as far as to invade a sorority house and attack four women within a span of 15 minutes.
Unfortunately, his desires were unquenchable, and like most serial killers, he took too many risks. Bundy was caught in 1975 and sentenced to death. He was executed by electric chair in 1989 and remains (probably) the most famous serial killer of all time.
