Ted Bundy Confession Tapes

Ted Bundy in custody
Ted Bundy is one of the world's most famous American serial killer, rapist and necrophiliac. Ted Bundy, confessed to 35 killings, but he was widely believed to have killed up to 100 victims.Often, he sexually assaulted and torture his victims with such instruments as crowbars or hairspray bottles.

Bundy was known for his “boy next door” charm, good looks and easy way of reeling in victims using a fake broken arm or a pet. Many say the character “Buffalo Bill” in the movie “Silence of the Lambs” was modeled a bit after Bundy. He grew up believing his mother was his sister. His grandmother helped raise him and he finally learned the truth. His father’s identity remains unknown. Some experts say his hatred of women came from the fact that his mother finally confessed the truth to him, traumatizing him.

Some of Bundy's confirmed victims


January 4, 1874, Bundy first attempted murder. He broke into the basement bedroom of a female student at the University of Washington, bludgeoned her in her sleep and sexually assaulted her. She survived but suffered permanent brain damage . Over the following four months, he killed three students; another from the University of Washington on January 31, one from Evergreen State College on March 12 and one from Central Washington State College on April 17.

During his first semester in University of Utah College of Law, he killed four more women one of which was the daughter of a police chief. The next semester , 1975, he killed four more women, three of which were taken in Colorado. The fourth was 13-year old Lynette Culver, who was abducted from a school playground and then taken to a hotel room and raped and drowned in bathtub.

On August 16, he was pulled over when he wouldn't stop for a police officer. Inside his car, the officer found balaclavas, gloves, a crowbar, handcuffs, and other items he suspected to be burglary tools. On March 1, 1976, he was sentenced to 15 years in prison for the kidnapping of Carol DaRonch, whom he had tried to abduct in Utah in 1974 by pretending to be a police officer.

In 1977, investigators had found enough evidence to charge Bundy with the January 1975 murder of Caryn Campbell, who had disappeared while on a ski trip, and managed to extradite him to Aspen. At the Pitkin County courthouse, Bundy was allowed to visit the courthouse library. From there, he escaped through a window but was pulled over in a stolen car for having dimmed headlights and arrested again. He was placed in a jail in Glenwood Springs, from which he escaped on December 30, 1977, by somehow getting his hands on a hacksaw and $500 and getting out through a crawlspace

January 15, 1978, Bundy broke into the Chi Omega sorority at the Florida State University , raped, strangled and bludgeoned students Lisa Levy and Margaret Bowmen.

February 9, 1978, Bundy committed his last known murder. He abducted 12-year-old Kimberly Leach outside her school, raped and killed her and tried to hide the body in an abandoned hog shed. On the morning of February 15, he was arrested for driving a stolen vehicle and was quickly linked to the sorority murders.


Shortly after the conclusion of the Leach trial and the beginning of the long appeals process that followed, Bundy initiated a series of interviews with Stephen Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth. Speaking mostly in third person to avoid "the stigma of confession", he began for the first time to divulge details of his crimes and thought processes.

The clips below contains a portion of the confession in which Bundy describes his crime, include burning the skull of one of his victims.
