Ted Bundy is one of the most notorious serial killers in recent US history. Born in 1946, Bundy murdered a number of young women in the 1970s, eventually confessing to 36 murders, although it is likely that he committed many more than that. A smooth talking psychopath who would approach his victims in public before abducting and killing them, he was executed in Florida's electric chair in 1989, having gained a certain notoriety during his trial as a result of his apparent charm and good looks.
