Ted Bundy, one of the most infamous serial killers in history, noted for his intelligence and evil nature, has emerged again as a suspect in a murder. In 1961, 8 year old Ann Marie Burr was abducted and killed, and now the cold case detectives hope that DNA from Bundy will solve this case.
Bundy has long since been a suspect in the death due to his frequent visits to relatives in the neighborhood.
He confessed to killing 30 victims, enjoyed the spotlight, and actually defended himself at trial. He was charismatic and that helped his cause, as he played victim, sporting crutches or a sling to lure a young female to his vehicle under the pretense to help him out. He took advantage and murdered many women, escaped from prison, and did it again, while professing his innocence the whole time.
Bundy was questioned in the Burr disappearance, but denied any involvement. Bundy’s DNA profile was obtained recently from a blood sample he had given at one time in Florida. Now with that information, the detectives can compare it with evidence in the girl’s case as well as other cold cases.
