Ted Bundy was a convicted American kidnapper, rapist, burglar and murderer, who targeted numerous young women and girls in the Seventies and possibly earlier. After more than a decade of denials, in January 1989, he confessed to 30 murders committed between 1974 and 1978, but many believe the actual number is closer to 100. Bundy was executed by electric chair at Florida State Prison just days after his confession – but he has been linked to many more unsolved cases after his death.
As recently as 2018, detectives in Washington, US, where Bundy was known to operate, said they were still pursuing leads on a number of open cases.
In 1961, eight-year-old Ann Marie Burr disappeared and is suspected of being one of Bundy’s first victims.
He would have been just 14 years old.
However, Bundy always denied having anything to do with the killing of Ms Burr, who lived close to his childhood home in Tacoma.
