Ted Bundy was one of America's most prolific serial killers. It was his good looks and natural charm that captured the country's attention once he was discovered for his crimes. He managed to evade the police for years thanks to his charisma. Once he was caught, Ted Bundy was sentenced to death by electrocution in 1989.
