TED BUNDY PART 1: ALL THE GIRLS ARE MISSINGIn 1974, college-age women from the Pacific Northwest began to disappear seemingly without a trace. Authorities were baffled – there were no witnesses, and no physical evidence. Then, in July 1974, a 15-year-old girl came forward with a critical clue. Among thousands of tips, an unlikely suspect emerged – a political rising star and respected law student named Ted Bundy.
TED BUNDY PART 2: TED ESCAPESIn the early 1970s, fear gripped the US when young women in Washington State, Oregon, Utah and Colorado had been found murdered – brutally beaten and sexually assaulted. The main suspect was Ted Bundy, who was serving time for aggravated kidnapping in Utah and was facing first degree murder charges in Colorado, but Ted wouldn’t stay behind bars for long – he escaped not once, but twice from authorities.

Authorities were sure Bundy was their man, and methodically built their case against him. Bundy himself helped prepare his defense, but would his amateur lawyering help him beat the rap – or send him to the electric chair?

Bundy maintained his innocence, but as the clock wound down on his final death warrant, he made a last desperate attempt to save his own life – he began to talk. Could this last-ditch effort save him from the electric chair?
