Ted Bundy; Biography of a serial killer is about the life and killings of the widely known and feared Ted Bundy. Throughout Bundy's life he showed signs of the profile for a serial killer but no one was looking for it. Being distant and cold from male figures, dependence completely on women, obsession with love. These kinds of things suggest that he would be a predator for women. Ted Bundy confessed to attacking over 27 women, only five of whom survived. Bundy was convicted only of the murders/attacks on the Chi Omega sorority sisters and the murder of 12-year-old Kimberly Leach. Though he confessed to 24 more murders, he was never put on trial for them. The families of all the other girls know that Ted Bundy killed their daughters, mothers, aunts, and sisters but was never convicted of it, so questions still linger. How many more women and girls were victims of Bundy? That number, he took with him to the grave.
