Ted Bundy Facts
1. Ted Bundy was not his birth name. He was born Theodore Robert Cowell and remained so for a few years. After he moved to Tacoma with his mother, she changed his last name to Nelson. Within a year after that, his mother Louise Cowell met Johnnie Culpepper Bundy. They later married and Johnnie Bundy legally adopted Theodore and changed his last name to Bundy.
2. Ted Bundy thought his mother was his sister for many years. He was born at a home for unwed mothers. To avoid the social stigma of having an illegitimate grandchild born to a young mother, his grandparents claimed him as their own. They told young Ted that Louise was his sister and not his mother. He did not discover the truth of his maternal parentage until at least the end of high school or perhaps in the first couple years of college.
3. Ted showed showed violent tendencies as young as three years old. His Aunt Julia, Louise’s younger sister, recalls incidents of laying down for a nap in her home and waking up to find knives surrounding her and a smiling three year old Bundy at her side. This paints an eerie, strange picture of a toddler arranging knives around his sleeping aunt.
4. Ted volunteered at a suicide crisis center alongside now famous crime author, Ann Rule. As a part of his psychology classes, he volunteered at a suicide crisis center. Imagine, a serial killer talking people out of killing themselves. Completely bizarre. One of his co-workers and friends was Ann Rule who is now a well known crime writer. She was researching the crimes Ted committed all the while not knowing it was her friend who committed them. She later published a book called : “The Stranger Beside Me” detailing her relationship with Ted and the numerous crimes he was convicted of.

Leonard Lake and Charles Ng
The gruesome discovery in June 1985 of the vicious crimes of 39-year-old Leonard Lake and 24-year-old Charles Ng left residents in northern California shaking their heads. For the San Francisco police, the afternoon of June 2 began routinely enough. They were called by the owner of South City Lumber when he observed Ng stealing a vise from the store. Arriving at the scene, the police witnessed the young thief depositing goods in the trunk of his buddy’s car. Before they could reach him, Ng ran off, leaving Lake holding the bag. In Lake’s trunk, alongside the stolen cise, the police found an illegal .22-caliber automatic pistol equipped with a silencer.
Leonard Lake was arrested and taken to the police station for questioning. During the interrogation, he asked for some water with which to take an “aspirin.” Almost immediately, the slumped over, appearing the have suffered a heart attack. Instead, he was suffering the lethal effects of a cyanide pill the he had ingested.
The investion of the bizarre suicide of their suspect lef the San Francisco Police to Leonard Lake’s small ranch near Wisleyville, about 150 miles northeast of the Bay Area in Calavera County. Calaveras is Spanish for skull, but police found much more than skulls when they arrived at Lake’s two-bedroom bungalow, down blue Mountain Road.
It did not take investigators long to realize that the ranch was not so much a rural retreat as it was a torture chamber. They found hooks and chains, as well as photographs on the walls of women in various poses of submission. Backdrops to the “artwork” indicated that the photos had been taken inside the ranch itself. The police also found a well-stocked library of homemade “snuff” films in which real-life murder victims were captured on tape. Viewing the movies on the living room telivision, the police replayed gut-wrenching scenes of victims being raped, tortures and murdered by the directors-Leonard Lake and Charles Ng. One chained-up woman had been filmed as she pleaded on behalf of her child, who was being tortured in front of her eyes. Another woman, while tied naked to a chair, was shown being told by Lake, “You’ll wash for us, clean for us, fuck for us.” Outside the house, the police found the killers’ refuse-large garbage bags filled with human bones, somewhere betwenn two and four dozen people’s worth.
