This temporary exhibit looks at Ted Bundy’s final crime, arrest, trial and death. It reminds visitors that no matter what someone looks like, you should practice safety measures, and always use the buddy system!
Ted Bundy is one of the most notorious serial killers in history. His first arrest was in Utah in August 1975, but he managed to flee and continue his crime spree until his final arrest in Florida on February 15, 1978. Bundy used his charm and good looks to gain the trust of his victims, often faking injury to get an unsuspecting female to assist him. The day before his execution in 1989, Bundy warned to beware of pornography and graphic television content, as he felt this ignited his vicious behaviors.
