Bundy would then beat each girl with an iron bar or other similar heavy weapon. He would then drive the victim to a lonely place, where he could rape her and kill her.
The attacks and murders of the 15th January 1978 were less calculated. Bundy broke into the two halls of residence and went from room to room, attacking women with the same oak branch. He also sexually assaulted them.
Sentence: Bundy was given 1 - 15 years imprisonment in 1975 for the aggravated kidnapping of Carol DaRonch. In June 1979 he was tried for the murders of Margaret Bowman and Lisa Levy, and was given the death penalty, which in Florida means the electric chair. At 7.18 am on 24th January, 1989 Ted Bundy was executed.
Interesting facts: Another body was found with the bodies of Janice Ott and Denise Naslund, but was never identified.
Bundy escaped from custody several times. The first time he managed to be free for 6 days before he was rearrested. The escape occurred the day before he was due to stand trial for the murder of Caryn Campbell. The second escape was more successful. He lost weight and slipped through a panel in the ceiling on 1/1/78. It was during this period of freedom that he went on his final killing spree. He was rearrested on 15th February for a traffic offence.
Included in the evidence for the murder of Lisa Levy was forensic odontology. It was shown by studying dental records and x-rays of Bundy's teeth that it was Bundy who had left a bite mark on Levy's bottom.

A Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule
A Stranger Beside Me by Ann Ruleis an excellent book which concentrates on Ted Bundy himself instead of his crimes. It is a very personal account of the whole affair as Ann Rule, the author, was a good friend of Ted Bundy at the time. A highly recommended book. To buy it click on the book cover.
