“Ted was a very sensitive person.”

“It was important to be popular. We’d be standing in the hallway and someone would come up to me and say, ‘Hey, we’re going to have a party Friday. Can you come over?’ Ted would be standing there and he wouldn’t be asked. It wasn’t that he was singled out for ridicule, but you have to remember that Ted was a very sensitive person – very sensitive.”

“..so much of what I wanted.”

“I was waiting for the bus in the Omni, watching a convention on the main floor there. There were all these people going to a Hawks game. And I was watching these people – these people who had real lives, backgrounds, histories, girl friends, husbands and families. Who were smiling and laughing and talking with each other. Who seemed to have so much of what I wanted! All of a sudden, I felt smaller and smaller and smaller. More insecure. And more alone! Bit by bit by bit, I felt something drain out of me.”

“It was just so good not to be looked at differently.”

Ted began crying during his description of those first days when he had returned to the world outside a prison.

“There’s something I’ve noticed since I’ve been talking to you here this morning,” Bodiford gently inserted. “When you start thinking about certain things, certain places, you start crying. What is it that disturbs you so much when you start talking about watching people play racquetball?”

“It wasn’t racquetball or anything in particular about racquetball, I don’t know…well…hold the phone….It may be tearful, but not sobbing or crying or anything. It was just so good to be around people, just so good to be a part of people, not to be looked at differently.”

Ted Bundy, on women

“I admit to being dependent on women, for whatever that means. I don’t know that there’s a man in the courtroom who isn’t, and if he isn’t, maybe there’s something wrong with him.”

1975 Nancy Baird [suspected victim]

NAME Nancy Perry Baird
AGE 23
DATE OF DISAPPEARANCE July 4, 1975
LOCATION OF DISAPPEARANCE East Layton, Utah
DATE BODY WAS FOUND Body has never been recovered
BODY AND DEATH Nancy Baird was working the Fina gas station on the afternoon of July 4, 1975. A patrol officer saw her at 5:15 PM, but when her manager arrived to take over the next shift, she was gone. Her car was undisturbed in the parking lot and her personal belongings were in the gas station where she had left them. The search for Nancy was in vain as no clues to her whereabouts were given. Two months after her disappearance, people claimed to have seen Nancy in a grocery store, but the tip led nowhere. Her body has never been found. When questioned, Ted Bundy denied having any involvement in Nancy’s disappearance.
