Theodore Robert Bundy (Ted) was a notorious serial killer who committed numerous murders over time. His victims included both male and female members of society as well as coworkers; additionally he killed several children – including his own daughter Rose – without ever facing formal charges or convictions for his acts. Ted managed to remain free for over 27 years, before finally being arrested in 1983 and charged with several murders by authorities.

Ted was raised in Ohio as the youngest of three sons by hardworking parents who sold gifts and jewelry at flea markets. Following graduation, Ted worked as a computer systems administrator before transitioning to consultant before founding his own company. Following that he was elected to California’s Legislature where he earned a reputation as an effective advocate for consumers, families, seniors, women, children and those without voice; such as fighting to rein in Wall Street excesses, increase green building standards reform subprime mortgage industry reform protect against domestic violence reduce global warming etc.
