We're Frustrated. What about YOU?
"Today in our feminist. Utopia governor cuomo resigned and stops kissing young women at weddings or stops being garbage. Human being. I mean he created a toxic work environment not just for the women s but for the men that worked for him to. But we'll get to that. Yes chalet recording on national women's day last year we were on a boat celebrating international women's day with an all female crew for the first time it was amazing and i wish we were back on that boat. We were in a bubble of just being pampered and surrounded by powerful women and it was amazing until covid happened in. it wasn't so amazing and instead of being surrounded in a bubble. We were worried that we were surrounded by five. Rhys but i i was worried. They were gonna cut seattle off because trumpet actually made sounds like well we just isolate seattle. It will spread. We all know how that turned out and happy international women's day. I guess we can start out with some good vibes because today on international women's day joe biden has signed Two executive orders geared toward promoting gender issues. The first executive order establishes a gender policy council within the white house and it's Reformulating that office from the obama administration that was disbanded by trump. But this one is going recognizes. That discrimination happens to both genders. So i think that's a positive thing and we hope that that will lead to more equality not just in the united states but around the world and then the second executive orders directed at the department of education and it Reverses the controversial rule on campus sexual assault and harassment that was issued last year by betsy devos. Donald trump's education secretary. So these are two Positive advancements and we will applaud those with some good vibes and biden also signed an executive order About election rights. And so we'll get into that a little bit more than we talk at the end of the show about. Hr one We can't count on executive orders to save us. But at least women who are on college campuses or more protected now because of that executive order and i am really glad that biden chose to do it today. Yeah we're gonna go from good vibes to pet peeves. I decided Section called pet peeves because this has been highlighted in the news. And it's really annoying me. People miss naming the george floyd trial. It's not george floyd trial. It's derek chauvin trial for the killing of george floyd and we should know derek chavez name as a murderer that he is and when you miss name it and call it. George floyd it places the blame on the victim and causes more pain to the victim's family and misses the point. I think we need to hold. Derek chauvin accountable and make his name famous for being murderer. I think it's the perfect example of a micro aggression that even progressives make without thinking about it and when ted bundy headed trial. We didn't name his victims. We didn't say it was the kimberley trial. It was ted bundy trial. But in this case. I think this is one of those little deep seated things that we don't think about until someone like you pointed out like i hadn't thought about it until i read it in today's research but i hadn't even. I didn't even in all fairness i didn't know the trial was starting so i didn't even know that but we'll do hell no hell of a time finding jurors so the 'cause the videos out there like the Selection process started and then it was halted. There's some concern about whether it's going to be a second degree or a third degree murder charge. So yeah they. They were going to add the third degree murder charge to make sure he doesn't get off on a manslaughter charge. Just go to jail for three years.

Which would be los angeles area sunset strip hollywood and you know not the bright lights and and fancy stuff there the underground the dark underbelly and also i have a fun fact for you Maybe i should backtrack there. It's not so fun as much as it is an interesting fact but you tell me What you might think of it now. If you leave a comment you know Ted bundy you know the name and in america. He's the most sensationalized killer of our time. There's probably no less than fifty movies and books on that guy.

Vampires in California? Of course. It's Richard Trenton Chase
"At the risk of this podcast. Turning into a true crimeline. I felt the need to find a case. That was a both interesting to me in a realize sense but still holds an air of legend about it monsters. Don't just stocker nightmares. In fact the worst of them live right next door. Yeah think about that the next time loan at two. Am in your apartment. Your sorry nevertheless anybody who has listened to this cast for any length of time will know that i have a love for vampire lore and stories that mix with my recent really vigorous fascination for serial killers. It was only a matter of time. Before richard trenton jays popped back into my memory. He was a terrible man. Just a poor poor soul in all honesty and parts of his story might even make you feel a little sympathetic towards him. But don't they call him the vampire of sacramento for a reason but starting at the beginning chase was born on may twenty third nineteen fifty and by all accounts. He was raised in a very strict household. You know the tape. Some of you probably even lit belt. Beatings verbal assaults. The bar soap for dinner. That sort of stuff. I'd imagine. Richard went through as a child. It was through this abuse. And probably something that was already loosened his head that he began starting fires and torturing and killing small animals traits that were once thought to be the surefire sign of a psychopathic killer. As richard grew up and started the old dating cycle. He was never able to maintain a girlfriend and apparently he had a few in his pyu peasant years because he wasn't able to keep little richard up for very long all his girlfriend's eventually dumped him for it. Obviously this would be frustrating to a young man and surely all kinds of thoughts flew through his head. Maybe he was gay. Maybe he was afraid of being gay. I so many men in sixties must have felt when the problem persisted into his late teens. He decided he'd better go get his head checked out and so we met with the psychiatrist. Who told him to. Cause impotence likely stemmed from repressed anger and that he was likely suffering from a rather serious mental illness though he was not suggested to be committed likely suffering from mental illness and repressed anger. Look no shit sherlock. I mean how much this shrink actually knew about. His past has to play a role. When somebody like chase walks into your office. You should know almost right away that this guy is going to be bad news. It's not like he was had bundy not overly handsome charismatic. Not the type where once convicted people will be like. Oh no no rig. They'd be more like yeah that makes sense see. There are different types of serial killers out there. There's organized killers who plan stock and meticulously performed their kills to perfection and leave nearly nothing behind. That would have been ted bundy in his early years. Then you have. People like chase who fall into the disorganized killer portfolio there's sporadic they don't generally plan and there often messy yet. They're still difficult to catch due to the randomness of their crimes. I mean that's the barebones explanation of these types of killers but should be enough read understand the motives or lack thereof for chase's crimes which will get to shortly as chief ruled or. It was clear that he was becoming more and more unhinged. He moved out of his parents. House at one point and rapidly went through a number of roommates. It no not like that more like. They just couldn't stand him. He was odd to say the least and heavily involved in drugs hard drugs when he was stoned. He was paranoid actually. He was probably pretty paranoid when he wasn't stone to one report has it that he nailed his closet door shut because quote people were invading his space from in there and yeah clearly a mind that is not okay that that was just the start our boy. Your development do quite hypochondriac. He always thought something was wrong with him and he would pursue it until he was either cured or fixed or whatever. His mind told him was okay. There are reports of him entering the emergency room saying somebody had stolen his pulmonary artery and he was there to find them the person who stole the artery that is he claimed that bones were coming over the back of his head and that his stomach was backwards and his heart was stop beating. I'm guessing because he no longer had a pulmonary artery. Make sense after one of these shows that say trysts diagnosed him as a paranoid schizophrenic. But thought that some or all these psychosis was due to his drug use was put under seventy two hour surveillance and it was recommended that he stay under supervision but it was ultimately completely up to him. See i've always heard that in. Some people don't know that they're insane. So why would they seek help and state of acidity if they don't think there's anything wrong with their brain just that its stomach goes backwards. You don't supervision for that. So naturally he left facility when he was able. He moved back in with his mom after a little while. But he was so deep news hypochondria and drug use that it began to take a toll on everybody's life including hits. of course.
"ted bundy." Discussed on Today in True Crime
"Eleanor louise cowl. Was twenty two years old when she gave birth to her first son ted. It wasn't a particularly happy experience for louise. Estranged from her deeply religious parents for having a child out of wedlock. She felt forced to hide her condition at a home for unwed mothers in vermont but after louise gave birth. She went back home for the next four years. Little ted cowl lived with his mother and grandparents at their home in philadelphia in later interviews. The men who became ted bundy claimed he had a normal upbringing told reporters that he grew up in a wonderful home with two dedicated and loving parents. It's important to note here. That ted often told conflicting stories to interviewers and had no qualms about lying to them as far as his upbringing. The truth was far less idyllic than ten claimed his grandparents. Samuel and eleanor cowl. Raised him as their child. He believed his birth. Mother was actually his sister as for the true identity of ted bundy's father. That's up for debate while louise claimed it was a sailor. Ted's vermont birth certificate reportedly listed thirty year old air force veteran loyd marshall as the father in other instances lewis claimed that bundy's birth father was another veteran named jack worthington. But according to some there was another contender. Ted bundy's maternal grandfather. Samuel cowl was a violent man who may have fathered his own grandchild however no paternity test was ever performed. So it's impossible to tell who the birth father really was in nineteen fifty four year old ted and the woman he believed was his sister moved to tacoma washington in nineteen fifty one. Louise met a hospital. Cook named johnny bundy the two married later. That year and bundy formally adopted. Ted even in this more normalized situation. Ted had a difficult time socially he didn't get along with his new stepfather and his painful shyness made it hard to make friends in tacoma and by this point ted had already begun to show an inclination toward violence back in philadelphia. His aunt julia claimed she had woken one night to find herself. Surrounded by kitchen knives. Ted was standing nearby watching her. Ted's behaviour only escalated in washington as a child and adolescent. He devoured criminal detective magazines searching for crime scene photos. He developed an obsession with violent pornography and according to forensic psychologist darryl turner. He also reportedly exhibited signs of conduct disorder per the american academy of child and adolescent psychology conduct. Disorder is the umbrella term given to a wide variety of persistent behavioral and emotional issues a child diagnosed with it may show signs of aggression towards others. Have a lack of empathy have trouble following rules. Be deceitful and destroy. The property of others as ted bundy grew into a teenager. His antisocial impulses drove him to wander the streets of tacoma he liked to search for discarded pornography or spy on unsuspecting women in their homes. The police even arrested him several times. For stealing. one of the defining moments of bundy's young life came one day in nineteen sixty when he was approximately fourteen years old according to prison psychologist. Dr carlyle bundy said he came across his birth certificate in an old trunk. His mother was named as louise's cowl the woman he thought was his sister in the spot where his father's name was supposed to be written a hospital. Administrator had penned the word on no in that instant everything ted had known came crashing down again. We may need to take this account with a grain of salt. According to another biographer. Anne rule bundy sought out his birth certificate in nineteen sixty nine at twenty two when he founded in burlington vermont. It listed lloyd marshall as his father but someone had stamped the word illegitimate across the page. Whatever truly happened. Most of bundy's biographers agree that some time in his early teenage years he discovered his supposed sister was actually his mother and his father was known. Some believe this revelation made bundy resentful towards his mother perhaps it even added to the misogynistic streak already bubbling under the surface of his friendly veneer. All of his later crimes showed a particularly brutal hatred of women. But even still as ted bundy's childhood came to a close. It seemed impossible to imagine the horrific acts he would soon commit up next will learn about the greater impact of ted bundy's upbringing on his crimes. Listeners here's a new show.

Susan SurfTone: Female Competition in The FBI, and Criminal Psychology
"I I think we need to start with the FBI. Special Agent in the eighties. Yeah. That's a pretty male dominated field initially for that. Yes. It was convene many women back then or there. That many where I think I, think women had been in for eight years before I joined. So what was lacking was women in the supervisory roles who they hadn't made it up that high hip. So those of us that were there were you know bottom of the Ron Did the women's stick together women did women do Basically. No. Women aren't like men and women don't help each other usually. Oh. That's sad to hear it is but it's the truth than I. Always tell the truth they'll please do. So every woman for themselves, I wouldn't say it's an all the time general rule but most women that do want to get ahead a lot of them feel that they're better off putting their, they're investing their time with the men that have power. And they don't help other women and I have a theory. See My father played baseball father was a pitcher for the Brooklyn Dodgers Minor League and I grew up in a very sports oriented household were learned to play on teams and be kind of a team player and understand that a team has to work together and I learned that my ban to. And women don't learn that because my women Meyer didn't plant sports teams, I hope some of the younger girls learning that now that they're having an, you know able to play more on sports teams that you kind of have to help each other to win. And sometime, there has to be. A star. And, sometime, that's the quarterback sometime that's the pitcher in the guy that can hit the grand slam home run like puts. Hernandez. Whatever his name is did for the dodgers women no learn that lesson and they don't help each other. They don't know how to work together with other women is that probably than reinforced back then there's a lot less women in the workforce overall. So just didn't. Learn that because women to learn it with. Yeah, I. Think. So that's what I'm saying we weren't on teams. We didn't learn that how teams work together and look at look at what happened to Hillary Women Support Hillary I it's hard to describe. Unless you've lived in it and you've seen it and it's hard to describe to man I. Think because they just don't don't see. They don't get it is that there is kind of jealousy among women. That is a very female thing. It's self-defeating. We'd be a lot further ahead if we learn to work together and support each other. Even with everything you're saying though do you still felt like accomplishment getting into the FBI originally though, right? Yeah I was it was an accomplishment. Sure. What was that I like when you're going there for training I guess scary. I didn't want to be looked upon as weak by the males in my class or the instructors who were all male I wanted to pull my own way and I wanted to do a good job. I felt good because when I took the entrance exam if I had been white male I, would've qualified to get in. So in my own mind I didn't feel any exception had been carved out for me because women were allowed to have lower scores because they wanted to get more women in when I think about the training. I think about learning to shoot guns personal defense will tell us someone's lying information from them without them knowing is. It all those things. It's all those things plus it's a lot of academic work. We did a lot of academic work. We did I had fascinating classes in criminal psychology absolutely fascinating. They were some hard slide shows to look at I'll tell you that Jin example, Flynn murders, bodies mutilations, and it was funny because it was in explaining the psychology of Ted Bundy in we were taught by experts in the field people that had pretty much written the book towards the end of the class I had showed us. Of course, it was female bodies were mutilated female victims and they said at the end of the class, we're going to show you two days of. Young boys and men that were victims and mutilated. And they said we can guarantee you. That There's GonNa be some mail in the class that's GonNa Faint. Said you're GonNa the men are going to get sick. They won't be able to handle this. Guy's all at all of course out eight hundred lightning ha ha well, one of them hit the floor guy sitting right next to me thud. The guys were practically running out of the room to get to the men's room so they could vomit. Seeing the male body so mutilated and it's bad. The things they show, they show you the real thing it and just you're saying that they were they were made sick by seeing a male body relative a woman's body right and the women were fine seeing the women's body and with the instructors told us and neither the guy that like I said wrote the book on Criminal Psychology said that women are so conditioned in our culture to see ourselves mutilated that it doesn't bother us. But men are not. And when men see it they just they can't handle it. Kind of blowing my mind to be honest blows your mind when you see. When you actually are sitting there and you sitting next to the guy that just fainted I've never heard it put that way that we are conditioned to see women's bodies like that and it's nonchalant toss? Yeah. Yet is a mind blower isn't it? It's like the opposite like we're conditioned to see women's bodies sexualizing half naked, and then we see a naked male body it's like, Oh wow, that's that's a naked person it's. How we're conditioned.
"ted bundy." Discussed on Scene Of the Crime
"Obviously. I know it's like one of the. It's like a compulsion. He can't help himself. I mean obviously, but it's funny that that would be one of his compulsions. Yeah, so they take him into. Custody was at Tan. Okay, but for the next two days Bundy refuses to give his name, and they don't know who they're dealing what they have. NO IDEA I mean we're talking. Florida's not whole Mo, they even have fingerprinting at this point, yeah! I think so. Yeah. They're gonNA eventually. Figure out. It's him even if he doesn't yeah, finally he gives his name as Theodore Robert, Bundy and he's probably all like you know just cocky as hell and just thinks he's so great, but in short order the Florida police would find that Bundy. Only a week earlier had been put on there. The FBI's ten most wanted list. And interesting again we see Ted. Bundy's Deatrich in July of nineteen seventy eight when he's in custody and it was just a really weird exchange like bundy comes out of the elevator, and he doesn't have any handcuffs on or anything like that, and he stands like right by the sheriff, as the Sheriff read the indictment and the Chi Omega murders. It's just weird. We Kim with. Invite! Onto Religion, aren't you? Ain't got into. The bond told me that told him you're going to get me. You said he was GonNa get okay you've got the indictment. Is All you'RE GONNA get? Three to go. Theodore Robert Bounding. Charged indictment counts burglary to counts murder in the first degree. Three counts attempted murder in the first degree. Vine intent to affected out the Fed lethally my chance to talk to the press contrary to section seven eighty, two more batch it. I'll plead not guilty right now. Yeah, wow, yeah, it was really bizarre. Wouldn't the sheriff be like? Get him out of here. I think that I think that was everybody's question. Even during that during that time like, why would you why? Why would you do this? I mean it just didn't really make sense, but again so many things about Ted Bundy and what he's allowed to do and gets away with could be also that the sheriff knows Bundy's. GonNa make an ass out of himself and wants the whole world to see this guy for who he truly is. I don't know, I mean th. That's a that's a cop is half full. Yeah, I. Mean I feel like you've probably got game to by Bundy as much as I hate to say it. I don't want to give him any credit, but I mean it just makes them both look like what so Bundy went on trial for two counts of first degree murder. As you heard this time. He's representing himself and this is where it just gets, so we'll for a client. Yeah, and it's it's. It's strange because he's referring to himself in the third person calling himself Mr Bundy. Watching court videos from that time, it's surreal. He's like prancing around court talking to the judge like he's a seasoned lawyer wearing tweed jacket a button down shirt, deep blue. It's a deep blue shirt. The kind with a huge lapels over a white. Seattle Mariner sweater. It's sort of playful. Not I guess to his Washington routes. I mean he's not acting like I mean these are serious crimes that you know or have major consequences. There's the death penalty in Florida. There's not the death penalty in Washington like why he chose to go and. And murder there I mean some have to wonder. Why was earlier? It's his connection with Florida I. Don't know so the other thing that I've been thinking about as you've been. Sharing the information about his behavior is the fact that he did have that degree in psychology. I wonder if there's something to the the idea that if you act like somebody who is guilty of these crimes, you're more likely to be found guilty, whereas if you act like this is so ludicrous. There's no way that I did these things. Maybe people would buy into that. Maybe that's why he was acting so strangely and. flippant about the charges I think it's all with his dynamic that we've seen all along before. If, you, look at that, and there weren't all these heinous crimes that he's now. People are like Yeah I. He could have done I mean for a long time. There's so many people that knew him that were like. There's no way that he did this. Even though they talked about Ted with a with Tan Volkswagen, so many people in Washington new, there's a Ted with Volkswagen. They still couldn't believe that so many Volkswagen's today there was it. It was like his persona was larger than life. Well, another twist in this very twisted case is how many women would flock to the trial addressed to the nines and many dressed as his type. Because by this time he is like a media sensation. Everybody's talking about it. They know that he has a predilection for women with long hair Brown. Hair parted down the middle with hoop earrings, and there's a name for this bizarre phenomenon. It's called. Failure and was interesting here is he ended up proposing to one of his fans Karel? Boone and she came to testify on his behalf as a character witness. So He's says do you WanNa marry me, yes, do I wanNA marry you. Yes, and what is the last question? And he said something and I really do I do really do? WanNa marry. You. Wow, that's so romantic, so even more. Another you know they're not supposed to be able to have sex? According to you know because he is a suspect and it has escaped twice. Yeah, but at some point they end up consummating their marriage, and she conceived a child name Rose Bundy during one of her visitations. How would you like to be that child? I you know what I mean I changed my name. I'm sure she does. I mean what a legacy to give your kid. You want to go on to have your life, but it's like you can't be president. You can't be you know. There's so many things that are preordained I mean they could be. Society wouldn't let them. That's the thing. It's going back to the taboo of it. Your Dad's a serial killer. Could any of that have been passed along to you? Because if there's even a possibility, no one's going to want to have anything to do with you. Yeah, yeah, so it's interesting though I thought you'd like this one of Bundy's attorneys, former attorneys, John, Henry Browne, which yes. Yes so he's a prominent Seattle attorney who briefly worked with Bundy and he described Bundy's folly, and taking the stand as a fatally narcissistic miscalculation in his book the Devil's defender. Quote Ted believed he could lie has way out of anything and could charm. The judge writes Brown. He was wrong so what we were talking about earlier. Why was he doing this? Why was he acting all flippant and like you know leaning into his like? Than Life Personas good boy, next door, kind of thing, good natured guy and I never do these horrible things. Yeah, so in May nineteen, seventy-nine Bundy actually rejected a plea deal that would have allowed him to avoid the death penalty if he admitted to murdering Bowman Levin and Leach. He didn't take it I think he thought that he could get somehow. Get Away with it. On July? Twenty, fourth nineteen seventy-nine, and later in February nineteen, eighty to Florida juries would convict Bundy. Counts of first degree murder and later he was convicted for another first degree charge for murder of the Levy Bowman and leach murders before he was sentence. The judge asked if he wanted to say.

"I'm Caroline Gloria with Kim Shepard and this is the scene of the crime. That is a parent's worst nightmare. You think when you have your children tucked in at home cozy in their beds. At night. You lock the front door that you can go to sleep that you can turn off that little voice in in a mom's head. That is constantly worried about what could be going wrong with her children like. My kids tucked in the house is locked up for the night. The whole world has kind of gone to sleep and rest I think that's maybe the only time that I am not worried about my children with sleeping and now I've given you something to worry about right. But, I was looking up information on the likelihood of missing children being murdered, which is surprisingly unusual in like ninety nine percent of the cases when children missing, they're not killed their found. Let versus good very good, which is really good, but to the Attorney General of Washington state who conducted a study in one, thousand, nine, hundred seventy, said in seventy four percent of cases where the abducted children were killed, it happened within three hours of. Of the abduction, so is this the scenario where you hear it? We've done these stories and it's like well. We can't do a missing child report until it's been a certain amount of time. Because Ninety nine percent of the time they come back well, and that used to be the case. Those rules have really been changing in recent years. I mean think about the amber alert that you now have in place. It doesn't have to be. Be a twenty four hour situation. I think they might still have those rules for adults, but when it comes to children, the general's report, their conclusion of it was the importance of parents calling police immediately. They said the biggest problem they had was that. In most of these child abduction cases, parents would wait at least two hours before calling the police because they would think. Oh, baby, Janis, over at a friend's house, or maybe they just. Just snuck out there down the street we'll find them, and so they do a little bit of looking around I before calling authorities, and so the takeaway from this report was you call us within an hour or so much more likely to find your child, and have it be a good outcome? Well, in this case, I know that Bev she basically left the house went and spoke to. The neighbors came back in they immediately. Immediately called the police, and but that's the thing. She left the House and talk to the neighbors. I yeah not to put any blame it on whatever, but like. If there's one thing that maybe could have been done differently, it would be call the police immediately well, and I think that in this case what I didn't include that in the scene center is that they had seen a peeping Tom in the neighborhood as they were getting. Getting Information and so it's sad to say if this was Ted Bundy knowing what his Mo now is. She didn't stand a chance. Yeah, so hindsight is twenty twenty things in this case that yeah I mean. Maybe things could have been done differently, but when it comes right down to it, there's not a thing that anybody could have done. Yeah so first. Let's go back in time to start at the beginning to tell this story. Story though I had a lot of help, my sources include the documentary conversations with a killer. The Ted Bundy tapes Cairo. Seven TV ABC News, the Seattle Times and Wikipedia, so we're going way back to November twenty, four, th and nineteen forty six Theodore Robert Cowl was born to Louise and a home for unwed mothers in Vermont now Louise was twenty two, and after giving birth, she goes back home to live with their parents in Philadelphia. Philadelphia and Theodore or Ted he's raised to believe that his grandparents are his parents and that Louise is his older sister, so louise flees her parents home when he was three years old life was tough in their home, but allegedly what prompted Louise to pack up and move to Tacoma Washington was a situation where Louise's sister woke up to find her bed covered in kitchen knives with three-year-old Ted smiling at the foot of her bed. Yes three years old so crazy. Yeah, and I guess the which I'm GonNa get into in a minute, but the the grandfather. Who they were you know, he was raising Ted as his son and the grandmother was the mother, and then he thought that his real mother was actually his okay, so he was this horrible guy. Terrible grandfather, yeah, who ted later said that he identified, but that's such a zero to three I mean people could say oh well. It wasn't that long, but those are the the formative formative years yet and I was looking up I was curious about this because I know that there was a lot of rage and trauma that was happening in the family, and so I was curious about what affects childhood trauma could actually have on the development of the brain and I found this study from Dr Michael Develops. Who is with? With Duke University, and what he says, basically that those who experience a lot of childhood trauma are particularly prone to having chronic issues later in life including PTSD depression, anxiety, antisocial behavior, greater risk for alcohol and substance abuse, and the reasons for this are the changes in the brain structure that happens when you're in stressful situations, traumatic situations, your biology releases Cortisol and other hormones into your system that can not only impact your behavior in the moment, but when it's a brain that still in the process of forming can actually. How that brain forms, and make you more susceptible to having flights of anger, flights of anxiety, antisocial behaviors well and at three with the knives around the bed. Like clearly clearly, we've got issues here. So the so his mom who still believes as his sister they fleet Tacoma. Cousins for a while, so they have family, and that's what basically led them to. So it was just a really chaotic home life, but then a bright spot in early nineteen, fifty one Bundy's mom Louise Mary's a man named Johnny Bundy and Theodore is given his new stepfather's last name. Johnny is described as everything Louise's father is not caring, sweet and loving Bundy later thinks of him as an uneducated poor. You know he doesn't make a lot of money, and he's like really dismissive, even though the husband is like totally awesome and treats the. The family really well and takes them camping. You know Bundy kind of never really they have four other children together and Bundy always kinda keeps himself on the outside of it well, and that's the other thing that early childhood trauma effects is the child's ability in later, the adults ability to form connections in bonds with other people that is stunted in the brain win. You have so much early childhood trauma, so I'm not surprised that he had a hard time feeling any kind of attachment a stepfather, but I think though that we get this. This impression at least I do where it's like. We had the trauma at three up to three where it was super chaotic. The grandfather, which will get into in a minute was just completely psycho, but then he has this loving you know by all accounts, loving family, and so it gets back to that whole nature versus nurture, and you're. You're kind of like, I? You can't erase the trauma that's been done by having a nurturing family. I mean that three years of trauma changed. His biology changed his brain in a way. That can't be. Be Undone by okay well now you're around Nice people, so just stop being this PTSD, person like It just doesn't work that. Let me think about people who go to war and come home, and now you're in a loving family environment. Why can't you just move on and put that behind you? Because it's not that simple? Yeah, when it comes to the brain there still so much. We don't know, but that's what I think. That's what you and I love trying to figure out so in nineteen sixty five, though bundy graduates from. Wilson High School in Tacoma and then in the fall of nineteen, sixty five. He enrolls at the University of puget sound that same school where an Marie..

We cover Ted Bundy's background from chaotic childhood to a struggle with identity and rejection as a young man we also followed his slow metamorphosis into a killer leaving nearly a dozen murders in his wake in nineteen seventy four. This week will track Ted as he continues his killing spree mutilating and murdering nearly forty young women in cities across America. It was a bloody rampage that spurred multiple arrests and trials leading him to become one of America's most infamous killers by the summer of nineteen. Seventy four Ted Bundy's transformation into a serial killer was complete for the previous six months. Twenty-seven-year-old Ted had terrorized the Pacific northwest. He began in Seattle targeting female co EDS at the University of Washington but eventually expanded his hunting crowns Ted abducted and murdered college aged women on university campuses in alleys and hitchhiking off the interstate but no matter where his victims were from. They all looked the same police and the media noted that each victim was white young attractive and had long. Brunette hair parted down the middle across the northwest. Young women started bleaching their hair blond in a desperate attempt to avoid the same fate with no reliable evidence or witnesses the Seattle PD was at a loss watching helplessly. As women continued to disappear but they still had hope a lead would emerge the killer was growing more brazen abducting multiple women in a single month. Sometimes even mere blocks away from the last crime scene. They knew it was only a matter of time before he made a critical mistake. Then finally on July Fourteenth Nineteen seventy-four. Ted's violent sexual desires got the better of his caution. He abducted both nineteen year. Old Denise Naslund and twenty-three-year-old Janice ought at links park back to back in broad daylight one of Ted's defining characteristics as a killer was his boldness. Ted was a risk taker and he prided himself in testing his limits. In fact it's possible that Ted's overwhelming desire to push the envelope obscured the possible ramifications of his actions. Almost as he believed he was immune like there was no situation he couldn't slip out of. Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode. Please note. Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for this show thanks Greg. Many researchers and psychologists have found a link between boldness and psychopathy and according to psychological researcher Shannon J Fernandez in her article entitled prediction of a rise of antisocial personality disorder. This connection may be explained by the brain activity of adolescence risk. Taking in teenagers is caused by an undeveloped cognitive control system the areas of the brain responsible for regulating impulses and making positive long-term decisions however though most individuals see a decline in risk taking behavior as these areas of the brain mature. Psychopaths continue these tendencies well into adulthood if risk is consistently met by reward. Some adults may develop a kind of fixation on the behavior associated with that risk. And if left unchecked these tendencies may progress years and even decades past adolescence. This may lead to what Fernandez describes as desensitization and fearlessness and a need for higher level risk taking in order to achieve stimulation for Ted. This behavior most likely stemmed from his peeping Tom. Days as a teenager. For over a decade. His voyeuristic habit went unchecked. Meaning the only outcome. Ted faced was his own sexual gratification. However once the thrill of peering into women's bedroom windows no longer scratched that each. Ted's fixation gradually progressed into something. Much more violating. It's important to note however that not all risk. Taking behaviors from adolescence may develop into violence depending on the objective associated with this risk. Desensitization may have different outcomes such as drug addiction but if an individual stimulation is achieved through antisocial behavior psychopathic tendencies may be born for months. Each murder Ted committed had been met with nothing but reward. He had killed nearly a dozen women and in return he received sexual release and escaped entirely without consequence but that changed with the murders of Denise Naslund and Janice odd in July of Nineteen. Seventy four this time. His boldness had made him slip up before he abducted Janet. Ted had introduced himself to her within earshot of witnesses and now the authorities were onto him now. They had his name though. Police weren't positive that Ted was the real name of the killer. They had good reason to believe that they were on the right trail. As soon as they released the information to the public they were flooded with thousands of leads. People across Washington state called with their hunches and soon by cross-referencing which of those men also drove a ten VW bug. They narrowed down their suspects from thousands to just one hundred on. That list was twenty seven year. Old Theodore Bundy a coworker of Ted's as well as one of his former professors submitted his name to the saddle PD but when asked by police if they observed suspicious behavior outside of his similarities to the suspect neither had an answer. They were mere acquaintances with a hunch. Nothing more and on paper Ted was practically a boy scout. A well liked young law student with a SQUEAKY CLEAN RECORD. So detectives simply put his name on a list and moved on. There was only one person who could blow the lid off of Ted's facade and she wasn't talking yet for almost a year Ted's long term girlfriend. Elizabeth Clever observed that there was something strange going on with Ted. He often disappeared in the middle of the night after. They've gone to sleep and once. Liz even found a bag of unfamiliar women's clothing in his apartment but at the time she didn't think her boyfriend could be a killer. She assumed he was cheating on her. This devastated Liz so much so that she was too absorbed with his possible infidelity to realize the striking connection between her Ted and the one at Lake Sammamish. That was the case at least until he left. Ted had decided to try his hand at law school once again. This time at the University of Utah and so when Ted left Washington near the end of the summer in nineteen seventy four. Liz was left with the space to put it all together. The nighttime disappearances the clothes all of that was deeply troubling for weeks. Friends urged her to call the police at for weeks. She resisted then finally on August. Eighth Nineteen seventy-four. Liz called the SEATTLE PD. But when detectives took down her tip they simply filed it among all the others without further evidence. Matching their killer with Liz's description. Liz's lead was just another call from a jilted girlfriend and they'd had plenty of those Seattle detectives were at a loss with no promising leads. Their trail went cold and suddenly after nearly a year. Women stopped disappearing. Ted Bundy had moved onto another hunting ground. Salt.

"After Linda's murder her Ted was accelerated. And around this time Liz club for his long term girlfriend noticed a distinct change in him. His mood shifted at the drop of a hat. One Minute he was in high spirits has charming as ever and in the next is is went dark. Simple arguments arguments escalated into threats and broken furniture. It was the first time had seen him skirt towards violence his sexual habits changed as well though. Liz and Ted reportedly had a tender love life up to that point. He became aggressive coercing her into anal sex and insisting they experiment Roman with bondage but handcuffs in the bedroom with Liz wasn't enough to satisfy Ted. He continued prowling the streets of Seattle hunting for his next next victim. And during the Spring and summer of nineteen seventy four. He killed half a dozen young women in quick succession. Sources vary on the time. Line of Ted Bundy's killing spree but according to author and rules book the Stranger beside me. Ted's next victims uh-huh were claimed in the following order in March Ted abducted nineteen year old. Donna Manson from Evergreen State College in Olympia. While she was on her way to a concert cert- later he confessed to decapitating her and cremating her head in lists fireplace. Her remains were never found in April. Almost almost exactly a month later Ted abducted eighteen year old. Susan Ran Court from central Washington State College in Ellensburg. As she was walking to a film film-screening he murdered her and left her body on Taylor Mountain only a couple of weeks later on May Sixth Ted expanded his hunting grounds. He murdered twenty year old. Roberta Parks a student at Oregon State University. Four hours South Seattle three weeks after he returned from Oregon Ted spent the evening with Liz and her family loses relatives had gathered to celebrate her daughter's baptism. The next it's morning everyone was in high spirits. Liz who had been feeling troubled about Ted and his recent bizarre behavior filter worries ease. She watched him mm chat with a family member laughing and it's big infectious way. He was back to his usual charming self then. Suddenly Liz watched watched as Ted's expression changed it was like witnessing a storm drift to cross a bright sky. Suddenly his face went dark and the excused himself from the table. Ted left early that night without a word of explanation the next morning he was laid to Liz's daughter's baptism. Aw Loses. Thoughts immediately flew to her greatest fear. Ted was cheating on her with another woman but the truth was so so much worse after he excused himself from Liz's Family Gathering Ted raped and murdered twenty two year. Old Brenda Ball. His fifth confirmed victim. After a night of butchery he spent the next morning at a baptism. Ted Sudden Departure Church soon became a common occurrence more than a few times. Liz Fell Asleep next to ted only to wake up in the morning to find. He disappeared in the middle. I love the night. While Liz silently kept note of Ted's strange behavior the authorities also identified disturbing trend every month a a new college age. coeds seemed to disappear into thin air and by that summer the Pacific northwest was gripped in terror. Walking around college campuses began to feel like a living horror film hitchhiking which was a popular way for young people to get around at the time stopped almost entirely entirely girls in Seattle were even advised to travel in groups and to avoid walking through alleys. Perhaps the most eerie detail of the mysterious serious disappearances was the fact that each of the missing women bore a striking resemblance to one another. Almost every single victim was young white attractive active. That had long dark hair parted down the middle. They looked like Dianne Edwards the tendency to target victims who have a particular appearance or who resemble amble someone. A killer knows isn't uncommon. These shared characteristics between victims are referred to as a victim profile and Ted Bundy's was incredibly specific while we don't know if Ted's gravitation toward young women who looked like Diane was conscious. It's doubtful that his victims resemblance blends to his first. Love was a coincidence. However Ted later denied that he deliberately sought out particular type of target instead he? He claimed that the only common denominator between his victims was that they were young and fairly attractive. But it's very likely that the strong pattern Saturn and Ted's victim profiles was born of his breakup with Diane according to Doctor. Mary Ellen O'Toole a former FBI profiler specializing and psychopathy Killers victim preference is often developed based on a combination of what victims are available accessible and desirable at the time when a killer begins their murders and for Ted Dabo Gang of Diane Edwards. Were most likely the focus of his blood lost in the winter of nineteen seventy four. When ted I began killing he was right on the heels of his second? Break up with Diane. It's very possible that at at that time Ted had an insatiable urge to keep hurting her even after unceremoniously cutting off the relationship so he presumably would have been looking for a sort sort of surrogate for Diana on whom he could inflict pain with that desire in place. Ted looked around to see who was available and accessible muscle and for Ted a law student. Who lived very near the University of Washington campus? Female College students were in high supply. Thus Tad's victim profile was born and Ted's profile was more precise than most throughout his four-year killing streak he rarely straight from murdering his victims who fell exactly in line with the characteristics he was looking for essentially Ted had type and a Seattle police took took notice but while they recognized the pattern of victims police had no leads on the killer alert himself no suspects all they could do was watch helplessly as women continue to disappear across the Pacific northwest their only hope was that the next time the Predator struck he'd make a misstep leave something behind or botch a murder attempt. Detectives knew that in order for a killer to become so careless. They I had to grow comfortable and for Ted Bundy. Murder felt all to natural by the summer of Nineteen seventy-four. Ted's transformation into a serial killer was complete elite with each and every murder. His Ego only grew and his kills became more and more brazen that July his the era gance finally outranked his own. Good Judgment Ted abducted and murdered two women on the same day in Broad Daylight Light July fourteenth nineteen seventy four was a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Noon at Lake Sammamish just east of Seattle. It was a busy day for the park. Nearly forty thousand people had come to enjoy the lakes cool waters and onto picnic on its shores but Ted Bundy had different plans. Ted arrived at the lake and Casual Beach clothing and wearing an arm arm sling. He began approaching young women explaining. He was having a hard time loading his sailboat into his car with his injured arm then he asked them if they would be willing to come to the parking lot and help him out. Many women politely declined but to agreed to help. The poor injured entered man nineteen year. Old Denise Naslund Ted second victim that day had left her friends to use the park bathrooms when she encountered this seemingly helpless Ted Undoubtedly. She realized her mistake as they approached his car. It wasn't a pickup but rather a tiny rainy. Vw Bug with no sailboat in sight but by that point far from the crowds of people at the beach it was too late. Ted's first victim that day had been a beautiful young woman. He spotted sitting on a blanket and a yellow Bikini twenty-three-year-old Janna Sant- witnesses observed a man approach Janice. They described him as handsome with an unidentifiable vaguely British accent before Janice walked off with him. They hurt Janice introduce yourself then. So did the stranger his name was.

"The Sun wasn't even up yet in northeast Florida. When did finally rise forty two year old? Ted Bundy wouldn't be Out side or alive to see it. He'd been waiting on death row for almost ten years. The smell of eggs and and buttered toast entered his spartan sell a little before five. Am Bundy's stared at the plate but didn't move to touch it. Maybe he knew that the night before just forty five minutes west. Dozens of college students had feasted in celebration of his impending pending execution one of Florida's State University's fraternities organized a cookout. It was a twisted but fitting memorial morial to the women of the Chi Omega Sorority. That bundy had sexually assaulted and killed in nineteen seventy eight but the FSU FSU. Homicides weren't all that had led Bundy to death row over a span of four years from nineteen seventy four until nineteen seventy eight. He'd assaulted and killed dozens of women across the United States. In the days leading up to his execution bundy admitted to a total total of thirty homicides though investigators suspected the number could be far higher. They feared it was likely closer to one hundred hundred whether or not Ted was privy to the numerous bundy accused that we're held across. The South is unknown but he knew the majority of the American American public welcomed his execution so he pushed away the standard steak and eggs and Hash browns spread. He'd been asked by the prison. Listen if he wanted a special meal but he declined. Instead of eating he sat staring at the walls of the nine by fourteen foot cell l.. There was nothing else to do but wait in silence. He was all prayed out his minister. Fred Lawrence had been with him past midnight right but the strident barrier of cell bars proved that there was nothing further. The methodist preacher could do for Bundy as six. AM neared food. One of the prison guards came for him. He was tasked with shaving portions of Bundy's head and right leg. The electrodes of the chair couldn't adhere into the skin. If there was too much coarse hair after that bundy changed from the prison issue jumpsuit into a monochromatic Blue Blue Shirt and pants as the clock ticked to seven. AM He was led out of his shoebox cell by his wrist shackles. The want to the execution chamber was short about ten yards. The room itself was partitioned on one side was the chair and Bundy through a hefty plexiglass window. Were forty two. Onlookers many of those who had chosen to watch the event were officials involved in the Kimberly Leach trial. She was a twelve year. Old seventh-grader Bundy had abducted and brutally killed eleven years before the air above the rows of witnesses was thick and somber. no-one stirred as Bundy was led across the joined room to a heavy wooden wooden chair next to it stood emotionless executioner. His Black Hood cloaking him in anonymity Bundy sat down. They strapped him into the chair. He locked eyes with his lawyer. James Colman through the window when the prison superintendent swung microphone onto Bundy's mouth for any final words. Bundy again looked towards his attorneys gays. He spoke evenly. Jim Him and Fred. I'd like you to give my love to my family and friends. The executioner waited until he finished speaking to place place. The last trap under Bundy's Chin as it tightened his eyes bulged. Onlookers reported that he clamped his eyes open and shot repeatedly then they covered Bundy's face with a hood before the electrode to conduct. The electricity into his body was secured award with that. The prison superintendent nodded to the executioner at seven. Oh six. AM The current connected to the chair. Her surged for sixty seconds. Two thousand volts passed from the connection points in to Bundy's body and then the current kicked off the atmosphere was tense as everyone waited for protocol to dictate. What would happen next in tandem? The chief prison Dr Frank Kill Go. And a paramedic made their final checks. The EMT monitored Bundy's weakening winning pulse before the doctor removed the hood to check his pupils ten minutes after the electric shock at seven sixteen am Dr Kilgore confirmed. Bundy was dead the prison lieutenant. Don Davis stepped forward and spoke plainly in the sentence of the state of Florida versus Theodore. Bundy has been carried out. But the droves of people waiting outside the prison mm for proof that the execution was complete wouldn't hear this upwards of a hundred lingered outside the barbed wire coils waiting for the hallmark symbol. They knew a reporter was to emerge flapping a notebook and just a few minutes later. A yellow notepad was spotted waving living in the wind outside the prison. The response from the crowd was jarring people burst into song high fiving and clapping the the hooting created an Eerie Raucous Din. Naturally as the witnesses and officials trickled out of the penitentiary doors. They met this this grisly scene. No one could disagree. That bundy was a sociopath. The events of that morning were carried out as expected. Still the delight light in death. Was Stomach. Churning coming up. We'll look at the cultural response to Ted Bundy's execution now. Now back to the story on Tuesday January Twenty Fourth Nineteen eighty-nine serial killer. Ted Bundy was executed by the electric chair in a Florida prison. The morning marked the end to an especially dark saga of American culture. As bundy's numerous victims were mourned and remembered in the years. Following his execution newspapers often returned to the affable mood. That blanketed crowds outside Florida state. I prison with all their hollering and carousing. The onlookers could have been at a carnival or festival that is if not for their various tee shirts and signs signs indicating they were present for the Friday. Some had even fashioned impromptu hats from aluminum foil to mimic the head piece is that accompanied the electric chair and more those contributing to the reverberating chorus of Burn Bundy Burn included parents with. They're young kids. Some people felt it was appropriate. It's clear that Bundy's execution served as an outlet outlet for the American public to obtain some sort of Catharsis after following the harrowing span of Bundy's crimes over a decade. Even those unaffected did by his murders wanted to see justice. They were looking for some tangible acknowledgment. That the women Bundy had brutally assaulted couldn't wouldn't be brought back the lives. He had maimed and taken. Innocent families have been wrenched into grief and forced to grapple with the results of losing in their daughters sisters or cousins. Many that attended the execution agreed. On the fact that the punishment was due to Bundy a a man who had expressed no remorse for his crimes was ushered out of the world with the same attitude in the parking lot and surrounding surrounding streets of the penitentiary. A massive crowd aired their sorrow and anger. They felt that Bundy's nearly ten years on death. Row was a grievous error after all courts had handed down three different death sentences during his numerous murder trials but the audacious attitude of not only the crowd outside the prison but the surrounding communities marked that Bundy's execution in and and of itself was not enough lightboxes outside restaurants displayed fry themed menus for that day special broadcast casts on news channels provided live video feeds of the hearst leaving the prison and turning onto the interstate towards Gainesville. One waitress Chris working at a diner down the street from the prison seemed to capture the complex mood of the day she was new to Florida and unsettled. By both the scope of Bundy's crimes and the response to his death according to The Washington Post. She spoke with a grim frankness. This this is my first one. We're from Texas. They execute a lot of people in Texas. But I've never seen a crowd like this before it kind of says something about humanity. Don't it I'm Vanessa. Richardson for for more information.

"ted bundy." Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"Joining me from New York is Joe Berlinger. He's an Academy Award nominated an EMMY winning filmmaker in the last six months, he directed to Netflix movies about Ted Bundy conversations with a killer. The Ted Bundy tapes is a four part documentary that premiered in January last month, his feature film extremely wicked. Shockingly, evil and vile was released on the streaming service as well. And in select dealers across the country. Joe welcome to on point. Thank you, Kimberly. How are you doing? I'm doing great. If I can manage to talk correctly, we're going to push through. The title of the movie a bit of a ton twin one get no one gets. Thank you for that. So I wanna start off by asking why focus on Ted Bundy now forty years after he was convicted of these heinous crimes thirty years after he was executed. What is it about this case that keeps the public's fascination it will, I think Bundy defies all expectations of what we think serial killer should be. And therefore the lessons of Bundy can't be overstated, especially for a younger audience. You know, he was charming good looking charismatic. He alluded capture for so long because friends and acquaintances couldn't believe that he would be capable of these horrible crimes. He kind of, you know, pulled the wool over the American judicial system, which allowed him to kind of run roughshod over his legal proceedings. The American media kind of embraced him as, as almost as perverse folk hero in he manipulated and used the media. And I, I just think for a younger generation who does not really know the specifics of Bundy, the, the enduring lesson you know, just because somebody looks in access certain way they should not be trusted. I think is a very important message. In fact, before I embarked on these projects, I called my college age daughters up to, you know, who are in as most people know, bundy's prototypical, victim are college age young women, and so my daughters are in that in that group and I spoke to each of my daughters. Both very bright, young, women have very fine schools, which by the way, I did not help them get into those schools..

"ted bundy." Discussed on Last Podcast on the Left
"A press pool. Hang out, they read it Tim on live television. And he then it's like you just gave him a platform. He is loving this shit. You just kept giving him the these this this stuff you gave him all this ammo to run with. And then you gave them a recorder. And that's where he starts to remind me of BT K because she loves the sound of his own voice. Absolutely. Does. I did not the new information that I got from this though. And I'm not sure if if we covered this I obviously that was years and years ago when we spoke about this, man. But when he cross examined the man who went into the sorority house. I and Tallahassee. Yeah. The great detail that he made him go into about how the bodies were placed on the bite marks is a calendar of it was so eerie. Well, that's the interesting. The interesting thing about that incident. Is that Ted bundy's? Trial was one of the very first televised trials in American history. And everyone across the country watched the Ted Bundy trial, and because he was charming and because he was kind of good looking. The American tea because was TV friendly, and he also dressed TV friendly like what he'd wear those fucking like Seattle SuperSonics, sweaters war. He wore a belly shirt in one of the pictures. And because he was so TV friendly America was kind of split on this guy. Like he was at Ted Bundy was like a little popular. And they're like, well, I don't know like, wow. And really like at the end of the day the science, the what is it the tooth bite sciences kind of junk science like it's not right? It's not great. It's not really that. Good science. So people were a little apprehensively like, well, maybe maybe he didn't do it. Maybe this is just bad luck. Right after that cross examination after it was obvious that he took this guy after it was obviously he took this police officer up to ask him all these questions because he made him do all these details. Made him talk about all of his over and over and over again, and then asked no follow up questions. Right. And then just sat down because it was obvious. He just wanted to hear it. But then he had manage. To flip the whole thing to be a Knicks an expression of his horrific crimes and lay them out in front of everyone and everyone gets to witness it, and he's totally in charge. She's Maka Belling, devious pieces shit. Don't you see how evil my deeds are all it is is making them harder and harder. Yup. And he really thought he was going to get away with it. I'm firmly believed that this story also had in my opinion, other than Ted Bundy who is obviously the worst character in the story, Carol and Boone that was the woman on to under oath testified that she was just driving me insane. They ended up having a child because the the Russians officers turned his way turned his back and let them have sex. I thought they snuck come out. No, no. Ron visits Hanjour, go visa, we could actually do it. They actually could Faulk. I didn't get to the very end. They actually did it. So they had a oh that dude. It was a family picture. She had a son from another relationship. But she was so you had the first so we had to escape we had mass murder so beautiful girls being killed. Now..
"ted bundy." Discussed on Last Podcast on the Left
"They tell you really well, the build up really really, well, I didn't the build up was great like, for example, when he was working on the, Dan. Evans campaign. No idea who the hell this guy is now, you know. It was interesting. I didn't realize how well liked. He was he was doing fairly well politics and his I oh, it was interesting. He built for politics kessel. Unfortunately, when you're out there in the world mixing with these politicians half of them got fucking bodies in their base and half them jerking off just thinking about if they did. I I mean mean who who knows knows what? what's happening to the bathrooms at News Corp. But it's interesting because they interviewed his buddy. And I forget his name. Now he's much older now. But it basically was the dude who got Bundy into politics, and it was the guy who had he had a beige Volkswagen that guy like she and put the whole thing seemed interesting to me because that was Donald that's that's who Ted Bundy was emulated Bundy wanted to be or at least it was like that's a person that's respected or thought that was interesting in that guy loved tell them that story is like, you know, Fundy he got the idea for the Volkswagen pugs from me. We'll all like that. Don't all fucking like that that sheriff from Tallahassee that that whole rundown of that guy is cream in his jeans trying to talk about how dangerous Ted Bundy wasn't that ma- the incredible work that I did were they just mopped up. Everybody else's fucking fuck ups essentially by the end, they did good cop work by tracking him down. But still right whatever one thing, I will say. I'll take back for also Ted. I take away from this series to Ted Bundy is not even attract enough to be an actor. He's really not that attractive. I don't know. I mean, if you look at the the do that that picture the courtroom picture where they do the sketch where they went. But when they were looking for him when he was just Ted when they were looking for him. And you realize like, oh, it's true. They all mentioned that he had one eye higher than the other and one was closer to his nose. And when you see the picture he'll just like that police sketch, and you're like, oh, wow. I can never see him the same ever again that focus up on his eyes boat being fucking on even he looks all fucked up. But you know, I will say he does have a chameleon like face, and that's why he was able to just turn his hair ever, so different. And everyone's like who is that new guy in town. And it'd be like it's the same guy from yesterday. Well, that was the big thing with Ted bundy's that all of the sketches looked wildly different from each other. You know, people that saw him on the same day even gave different sketches of Ted Bundy, right? And even. But that's the thing is that when the sketches started coming out after the girls disappeared from lake sammamish. So ma'am, ma'am, lake semantics when he kidnapped and killed two women and one day, his friends, we're looking at the sketch and the paper, and that's the thing is that like it will it said this guys named Ted Wright, here's his sketch. He drives a Volkswagen bug and all of his friends were like, oh, it's like you jed, right? And you have a full swing. Volkswagon bug looks like you. But the funny funny. So over taken by who was because I mean, really, it is he was horrified charming like he was able to fool people like over and over and over. I mean, he always able to convince people he had a he had a problem with a yacht on dry land. Yeah. But but the worst, but really the worst part of of the the docu series, and you know, and I didn't get to to see the whole thing. But Anne who is my research assistant for the book. She sent me an article last night that said that they don't talk about any of the murders in any detail whatsoever. No, the no do they jump around the time line quite a bit. Yeah. They again, but they mostly stress to be honest. How good he was it serial killing thing about the documentary that I don't I understand..
"ted bundy." Discussed on Double Toasted
"You know, these like these these murder fans out there that the that that that love, you know, the Syra killers is kind of like the media's putting it out there that was supposed to take this guy. Some sort of superstar way they got that movie out there. That's why I was mad about on Bilas my little sweetie man, Zakia poof, Ted Bundy, Elliot Ted Bundy, and I listen, and I don't think Tim bundy's that good looking like like people say, he's just he doesn't look crazy. But it looks like a normal somewhat handsome guy. Yeah. And they got they got Zack Ephron play him in this movie. Extremely wicked shackling vile in evil. Staring at your phone. What do you say we get? What is it about this guy? When I feel his love feel it come on. Things. You don't have. I think I must be lost. That will shut QB on your worst nightmare. You know? It's you'd have been dead in a month. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Man. Yeah. That's what I'm saying. You know, this is you know, you got there's a controversy about this movie with a talking about man you watch. 'cause we watched the whole trailer is making it seem like it's some like some like some caper something like a heist not murder like thirty women possibly more. And I think that's why it's a perfect time to have the series you out there because series series is a dressing that whole thing of series that I was talking to her talking. One of the screen just when blink. Did. You mention that cute. Ted bundy. If you don't say series not. But this is a dressing that at the perfect time. Now when Ted bundy's becoming somewhat of a trend, again, this is saying, you know, let's let's talk about this whole thing of the the average to look in white male not being threatening. When they're being we don't I'm not saying, I'm not talking about white people. But you know, this because we don't look at that group. There's a lot of shit going on in taking the norm. And this week. I've been looked at you can get away with a lot. Yeah. Well, we're looking at terrorists white nationalist are like, you know, coming up while you're looking at somebody like this guy in the background with his, you know, who would who's not as good looking as his guy who's the creep on a normal every day that that girls are coming into the store. This guy's the real one. That's doing all the the shady shit. I liked that this is the dress in that right now. And I think that the doing it in a really cool way. Because. One of the things that this series wants to do the challenge everybody. I'm really does it challenged meal net will save here. 'cause I knew from the preview what he was all about. And this first episode. It tells you very clearly what he's all about. And I was I was curious about the show. But I wouldn't show is going to watch. It a lot of people were like, I don't know. We can't stop watching it and took my daughter going like, I don't know data. What is pretty good? You've gotta watch. And I was like all right for you. I was struck..

The Scene at Sundance Film Festival 2019
"One of Utah's most famous events the Sundance film festival kicked off yesterday. James Nelson rights runs broadcast based in Salt Lake City joins me now to tell us more of this year's edition of this event, one of the largest and most famous independent film festivals in the world. Welcome to the program. So James, could you I still about the selection of films in offer this year will thank you Marcus great to be with you across the ocean. There I'll tell you what fourteen thousand two hundred and fifty nine films were submitted. That's an all time record. And it shows you how much Sundance is growing over the many years decades related it's been in existence, but the number of films that finally make it to the screen for the people to come and see and for the Hollywood folks to take a. A close look at is only one hundred sixteen. So the odds are not good that you'll make it into Sundance. But Marcus if you do oh my goodness. Sundance is a heck of a trampoline or springboard to get out there in the world and make some noise exactly what I'm wondering. I'm wondering what the films that are making noise this year. What's going to be the biggest to discussion topics? What feels like going to be creating most of us. Well, you know, one that has ties to Utah believe it or not is a story about a serial killer Ted Bundy from decades ago that film, you know, has got a lot of people talking. And by the way, a little side note on the movie, it's called extremely wicked shockingly evil and vile. That's the story about Ted Bundy a side note is one of the Metallica performers is got a cameo appearance. He plays a Utah highway patrolman, but that story has got a lot of early hype and buzz because it was such a horrific event. And yet that story still haunts Utah, Colorado and Florida Florida being where Ted Bundy was finally executed in the electric chair electric chair some years ago, Marcus this you'll feel them recommendations, by the way. I'll tell you. What sonia? The white swan would be a recommendation that I would make this. This is a true life story directed by an so it sqi it chronicles Sonja Henie one of the world's greatest athletes. She won three gold medals ten world championships. And she was by the way, the inventor of figure skating as we know the beautiful sport today. She goes to Hollywood, this is sort of the film that script becomes very rich. She becomes even more famous. But then like a skater slipping on ice, she falls in that movie has a cold is the ending. However, it might be Sonia's. The white swan it might be her best performance. So that's a mystery another one I wanna tell you about. Very the last tree is a film about a British boy of Nigerian heritage raised in Lincolnshire. I don't know if I pronounced that correctly markets, particularly thank you. He's got a lovely life. In a pretty darn good neighborhood with foster parents things are going along quite well. But then the real mom shows up, and she grabs it takes her home to a flat much different neighborhood much different field for this youngster in with all of those big differences. The boys lost he struggles and distances himself from both mothers, just so he can go out into the world and try and find
Even Just Hearing About Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes Is Terrifying
"Was a very good looking smooth talking clean cut double life living serial killer that operated in the seventies up in the Seattle area. Notorious and his story has a lot of twists and turns that I think end him up in Florida's that we ended up I believe so. Yeah, I it wasn't just murder by the way rape kidnapping burglary. Dismemberment decapitation necrophilia checked all those boxes is that all. He was one of those guys who you would never ever ever assume was into this kind of stuff because he was so clean cut. So affable. And because this month marks the thirtieth anniversary of his execution. True crime filmmakers are releasing two different. Ted Bundy projects there's the conversations with a killer. The Ted Bundy tapes, that's on Netflix. They say not to watch that alone. Which makes me want to race home and watch it alone. It is a post to be chilling. The other one is extremely wicked shockingly evil and vials starring Zach Ephron as Ted Bundy, which I think is a great class a casting call. He killed thirty women. He confessed any way to the murders of thirty. He might have killed more. The Zach Ephron picture is framed by a book that was written by his longtime girlfriend. There is a woman Elizabeth club. She went out with Ted Bundy during his reign of terror like ten years or the seventies. And she talks about how they first met. I met at a local bar and the university district of Seattle September nineteen sixty nine. And she was twenty four at the time. She was recently divorced, and she had left her hometown of Salt Lake City looking for a fresh start ordinary night. She heads choose Sandpiper tavern with some friends, she instantly notices this tall, sandy haired. Man, clear blue is that she said lit up when he smiled. He was seated by himself. Ted Bundy was he was twenty three at the time. And she says she was surprised at how approachable and easily amused. This handsome man was they danced they flirted. She said I knew when I first looked at him before we even had danced that he was a cut above the rest of the crowd. She was captivated by him. She took him home that night from the bar. Wow. He and she whatever and the next morning he wakes up and notices that she's got a hangover. So he decides to make her breakfast. She says she almost immediately started dreaming of a future with him. Their their romance blossoms through normal. Dating habits picnics homemade dinners movies meeting, friends, and all that. And probably most importantly. Group dates with her three year old daughter. She said that she was amazed. How quickly he assimilated to domestic life as a as a father figure and a protector to both that he would talk and eat and take care of little Tina when she wasn't around her. She was at work or whatever that he was a family man who watch up Saturday more. He would wake up early Saturday mornings to watch cartoons with our well while mom slept in and by the way, apparently in this film. This new Netflix documentary you see because he's in a lot of family pictures and whatnot. You kind of see what you're talking about that he had integrated himself into family life. Oh my goodness. And in and she she introduces him like you said to her family. She says that her her introduction to his family wasn't as warm that it was tinged by a lifelong resentment Ted felt for his mother because she kept the identity of his birth. Father a secret it was he was fourteen years old when Ted discovered that he was. Illegitimate. I guess that's what his cousin called him that the man who raised him along with us for other siblings was not as real father, and that really pissed them off. It's probably the root of all of it. Well, it was a route maybe or something, but he was a sadistic psychopath. You know with the. Who was about to go on a murder spree that is can rival any in history. She says that they were together for three years that turned into five years, and then it kind of started to unravel their relationship. Did she said it kind of became a mental roller coaster that there was a series of emotional jabs in counter-punches that he would go on dates with other women, which would send her into a total spiral before he would smooth things over and say all the right things, and she would counter strike by going out with men hoping that it would make him jealous and prove that he cared, and it just the cycle continued over and over and over. I guess the the whole charm thing that he had in the charisma thing is is not so uncharacteristic. If with a lot of these shows, you paths. That's what psychiatrists said when they were looking at this Ted Bundy case, anyway, go ahead. I then what happened Ted bundy's car? I didn't know this is now a tourist attraction at the national museum of crime and punishment in DC. She says the girlfriend says she first became suspicious of Ted Bundy because there were eye witness accounts with missing women that said the suspect was driving a metallic Volkswagen beetle. Yeah. That's what was going on women were starting to go missing. This is all going on while he's still dating her. He's killing women. And as you say more than just killing them. I gotta believe that to a degree since she's looking the other way with his cheating on her that there was a bit of a head in the sand syndrome going on in terms of Ted Bundy, and and not wanting to believe that he was. That he was the perpetrator even know things were lining up.
