We are kind of in a golden age of true crime content. From Serial to Making a Murderer to Dirty John to thousands of true crime podcasts and series and documentaries, people cannot seem to consume enough horrifying real-life stories. Why? Why now? That is a very good question and one that we are not necessarily going to get into right now.
But you know that it is true. I am one of those true crime fanatics. I always have been. When I was in high school, my friends bought me a book that was an A to Z guide all about serial killers. And right there under B was Ted Bundy, one of the most notorious serial killers of all. Ted Bundy was known as a charming, charismatic, and attractive man, and so many were shocked when he was revealed to have raped and murdered at least 30 women (but very likely, there were more) throughout several states during the 1970s. The fascination with how such a seemingly “normal” man could become a cold-blooded killer has led to a new documentary series about Bundy as well as a fictionalized movie starring Zac Efron as one of the world’s most notorious serial killers.
