When Ted Bundy died in the electric chair on 24 January 1989 at the age of 42, hundreds of revellers, including 20 off-duty police officers, celebrated by singing, dancing and setting off fireworks in the park across the street from the prison. Bundy was an exceptionally evil, well-organized and calculating criminal who used his knowledge of law enforcement techniques to elude capture for years.
The crime scenes, where he murdered women, were scattered over such wide geographic areas that it took police a very long time to recognize it was the work of one man. His fingerprints were never found at the scenes of the crimes and he had a strange chameleon-like ability to change his appearance at will. As one person said, 'Ted lured females the way a lifeless silk flower can dupe a honey bee.' All of Bundy's victims were white females, mainly college students aged between 15 and 25. He confessed to 30 killings but the real figure could have been 100 or more.
