Notorious Serial Killer
A serial killer is defined as someone who kills three or more people over a long period of time. They are usually male and possess a “mask of sanity,” which means that on the surface, they appear to be normal law-abiding citizens with a pleasant demeanour. However, beneath their facade serial killers are sociopaths who lack the capability to empathize with the suffering of their victims.
Ted Bundy was a good-looking guy, and seemed very friendly and charismatic. However, behind his handsome face lurked the twisted mind of a serial killer, and between the years of 1974 and 1978 Bundy kidnapped and murdered 30 young women in the U.S. Those were just the women we know of; experts agree that he could have been responsible for up to forty disappearances and murders to which he didn’t confess.
To lure in his victims, Bundy would often pretend to be disabled or would pose as an authority figure. Other times, he would simply break into his victim’s homes and bludgeon them to death as they slept. After killing them, he would rape, torture, and dismember them, often keeping souvenirs (like their heads) in his apartments for months at a time.
After a thrilling police chase, Bundy was finally arrested and brought to justice in 1979 and was killed in the electric chair in January 1989, in Starke, Florida.
