Bundy linked to 2 cold cases?

Ottawa Sun - - NEWS - BRAD HUNTER

Cold-case de­tec­tives be­lieve they’ve linked two un­solved homi­cides to no­to­ri­ous se­rial killer Ted Bundy.

Bundy — the charm­ing, hand­some face of evil — was ex­e­cuted in Florida’s elec­tric chair on Jan. 24, 1989.

It’s be­lieved Bundy killed more than 30 peo­ple by the time his mur­der­ous trav­els ended in the Sun­shine State’s Old Sparky.

Now, in­ves­ti­ga­tors on Bundy’s home turf of Wash­ing­ton state say they’re us­ing new tech­nol­ogy to link the charis­matic killer to two more sex slay­ings.

The probe comes at a time when there’s re­newed in­ter­est in Bundy, with heart­throb Zac Efron star­ring in the com­ing biopic ’Ex­tremely Wicked, Shock­ingly Evil and Vile.’

But there have been road­blocks.

Un­for­tu­nately, Bundy’s DNA isn’t in a na­tional data­base.

“It was shock­ing to find out that a multi-state killer would not be in a na­tional data­base to con­nect un­solved homi­cides,” Ta­coma cold-case Det. Lindsey Wade told KIRO 7. “It seems like com­mon sense that maybe he would be in our state data­base given the fact that he was a se­rial killer in our state.”

Bundy copped to 11 mur­ders in Wash­ing­ton but was not con­victed of any.

In­stead, Florida took the lead in or­der to put the killer in the chair.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve Bundy be­gan his mur­der­ous death spree as a teen.

One of the mur­ders cops are look­ing at is the 1961 dis­ap­pear­ance of Ann Marie Burr, who was just 8 years old.

Her body has never been found and Bundy, 14 at the time, has re­mained the prime sus­pect.

He’s also the prime sus­pect in the ’66 mur­der in Seat­tle of a flight at­ten­dant who was blud­geoned to death.
