Bundy
would often fake injury, wearing an arm sling or leg cast and would ask his victims to help him carry stuff to his Volkswagen Beetle where he would then hit them over the head with a crowbar he had hidden in his car. Just about every recovered body showed signs of strangulation and blunt force trauma .
Whilst on Death row Ted recounted how he had decapitated at least a dozen of his victims with a hacksaw. He also told how he would return to the body dumping site at Taylor Mountain, where he would lay with the bodies, sometimes applying makeup to the corpses and having sex with the remains. Pretty sick pup was Ted Bundy don’t ya think? Ted Bundy was arrested on the 16th of August 1975 in Granger, Utah for failing to stop for a police officer. Found in his car was a crowbar, ice pick, trash bags and a ski mask and he was detained and his apartment searched. He was convicted for a kidnapping after being identified in a line up and was sentenced to 15 years in Utah State Prison.
It wasn’t over though as Bundy managed to escape, but only for 6 days. He was recaptured and was being held in the Glenwood Springs, Colorado jail where he managed to escape again and made his way to Chicago then onto Tallahassee, Florida. One week after his arrival here on January the 15th 1978, Bundy killed again. On February 9th 1978, Ted Bundy traveled to Lake City, Florida where he abducted, raped and killed 12 year old Kimberly Leach.

The call came back it was indeed stolen and Bundy tried to run again, getting into a scuffle with the police officer. He was taken into custody and Bundy said “I wished you had killed me”.
