January 24, 1989
Florida State Prison, Bradford County, Florida
Ted Bundy is executed for the rape and murder of a 12-year-old girl
Bundy preyed on young women, and confessed to the murders of 30, though the exact number is unknown. He decapitated at least 12 of his victims, and sexually violated their corpses repeatedly after death until decomposition or scavenging by wildlife destroyed the bodies of his victims.
His final words were to his lawyer, Jim Coleman, and minister, Fred Lawrence. He simply said “Jim and Fred, I’d like you to give my love to my family and friends.”
