24 January 1989 – Ted Bundy
A suave, cool and charming exterior hid a malevolent boil on the butt of humanity. We are, of course, talking about depraved sex-fiend Theodore Robert ‘Ted’ Bundy, who was executed today in 1989.
Bundy got the shock of his life when he went to the electric chair for a rape and murder fest that spanned the United States of America.
He became known as one of America’s most violent and infamously grisly serial killers.
Bundy went on a raping rampage, targeting women whom he would molest and then murder gratuituously in a four-year frenzy that took place around 1972 to 1976.
His popular choice of prey took the form of female students, and he would often decapitate his victims. With others, he’d even commit necrophilia on the rotting corpses, until decay had set in so badly, it became unbearable or impossible.
Bundy finally officially confessed to 30 murders, one as young as 12 years old. But this is a conservative figure, and only when the monsterous man was strapped to the electric chair did that finally put an end to his gratuitous killing spree.
Bundy was played by Michael Reilly Burke in the imaginatively titled film Ted Bundy.
