Not only one of America’s most prolific serial killers, Ted Bundy was also known for his escapes from police custody. He escaped twice from Colorado, during which time a national manhunt was launched and information about him cobbled together for law enforcement all over the country.
Prolific serial killer Ted Bundy’s undoing was a bite mark he left on the buttocks of one of his victims, Lisa Levy. Levy and her sorority sister Martha Bowman had been strangled and beaten to death, but their killer did not leave much evidence in the Chi Omega sorority house, except for the bite mark, which later matched impressions taken of Bundy’s teeth and became a central piece of evidence at his trial.
Sentenced to death — twice — on July 30, 1979, for the murders of Margaret Bowman and Lisa Levy, this handsome, educated law student was actually one of history’s most terrifying psychopathic killers, who stalked and murdered dozens of young women.
