With it being 30 years since the execution of infamous serial killer Ted Bundy, many of us have been keen to learn more about the his terrifying case and how he managed to evade capture for so long.
A former ex-girlfriend of Ted Bundy spoken out about their relationship for the first time in 40 years. In a just-released interview with Daily Mail TV, the woman (who chose to remain anonymous) discusses what it was like spending the night with him – further detailing how he would sit for hours and ‘admire the knives he allegedly used on his victims’, and that she believes she “escaped being killed.”
Speaking to the publication, the 71-year-old woman revealed that she had met Bundy when he moved to Utah in 1974 claiming that they dated for “several months” while living in the same building. “He played the part really well,” she said. “I think that I was a respectable front [for him]. As long as he was with me he was all right because I looked nice, my family was nice.”
“I’ll never forget one night I stayed overnight and I woke up in the middle of the night and I said, ‘Ted, where are you? What are you doing?’ And he was through in the kitchen and he said, ‘Oh just looking at my knives.’ I thought about that later and I thought, ‘Wow, I just escaped being killed. Except that he knew better than to do it in his own apartment.'”
Then, she described the night a woman went missing on Halloween and how Ted came into her home while she was sleeping. She said:
“There was a girl who disappeared on Halloween night and was killed. And on Halloween night he came to my apartment when I was asleep because my door was partially opened because the rug was preventing it from closing. I was in bed and he came in and said, ‘I want to tell you that your door is opened and unlocked.’ He woke me up. And I said, ‘Oh thanks Ted,’ you know. He did a good deed and he also killed someone that night and I didn’t notice a thing.”
Finishing off the interview, his ex said she never really knew what was truly going on inside Bundy’s mind, but when all of the allegations came out after they broke up, she immediately believed them.
