Now, former FBI agent Dr. Kathleen McChesney is offering more insight into his killing spree via a new REELZ documentary, Ted Bundy: Serial Monster, airing Saturday, January 9.
In the 1970s, police were left scratching their heads when throughout the Pacific Northwest, countless beautiful women began disappearing, only to be found dead soon after.
At first, authorities had little to go on, but similarities then came to light: a charming, handsome stranger with a broken arm and a Volkswagen Bug. Still, the crazed murderer stayed one step ahead, leading to a devastating sorority house massacre on the other side of the country.
The federal agency remained clueless to the killer's identity until they got a phone call from a woman who confessed, "I'm concerned about my boyfriend. His name is Ted Bundy."
Elizabeth Kloepfer was Bundy's girlfriend for six years, all while he lived a double life and murdered 30 individuals. It was Kloepfer's call that helped authorities capture the elusive killer.
Bundy was specific in choosing his targets: he killed young women who held the slightest resemblance to Stephanie Brooks, a woman who apparently broke his heart.
Considered by the FBI as society's most infamous and notorious serial killer, Bundy had two court trials, which resulted in him being sentenced to death and then executed on January 24, 1989.
For more on the serial killer's life and details on how authorities finally caught him, tune in to Ted Bundy: Serial Monster, Saturday, January 9, at 8 ET/5 PT on REELZ.
