MOSCOW, IDAHO: The murder scene of four University of Idaho off-campus students was eerily similar to Ted Bundy's January 1978 sorority house massacre, according to legal analyst Nancy Grace. Grace said, Bundy's, also known as a "sadistic serial killer," attack on the Chi Omega sorority house at Florida State University in January 1978 "was strikingly similar to the Idaho killings."

Madison Mogen, 21, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, were found stabbed to death, with the police terming it an 'isolated case' in the Moscow, Idaho, home. The police also suspect that a Rambo-style knife has been used in the attack, however, two more roommates who were present in the house and were unharmed aren't being suspected.

Bundy had broken into the Chi Omega sorority house 45 years ago and sexually abused two students before killing them. He then attacked two more sorority sisters before making his way down the street and assaulting another female student. "Think back, Ted Bundy and the Chi Omega massacre, many of those sorority girls were still asleep when cops got there, and the alarm was sounded when someone realized what had happened," Grace stated on Fox News’ Fox and Friends.

Theodore Robert Bundy was born on November 24, 1946, in Burlington, Vermont. Though a seemingly talkative and charming child, he would show signs of a sadistic killer as soon as he turned a teenager. His first confirmed victim was a teen he assaulted in 1974, only two years after graduating from college.He tended to prey on young and attractive college women, first near his home in Washington, then moving east to Utah, Colorado, and finally to Florida, as per Crime Museum.
 
The notorious killer would prey on victims by faking disability, slinging his legs or arm in fake casts while walking on crutches. He would then use his charm and faked disability to convince his victims to help him carry books or unload objects from his 1968 tan Volkswagen Beetle. He would strike them over the head with a crowbar or pipe, then he would immobilize them with handcuffs and force them into the vehicle. Bundy had removed the passenger seat and often stored it in the backseat or trunk, leaving space on the floor for his victim to lie out of sight as he drove away. 
 
Budy will rape, kill, and mutilate scores of victims without being caught because of his clean-cut personality, as well as leaving no trace of evidence behind. After escaping from a police patrol on August 16, 1975, in Utah, a check of the car turned up masks, handcuffs, rope, and other suspicious objects, but nothing conclusively tied him to the killings.

He was released but remained under continual monitoring until he was caught again many months later for kidnapping and assaulting one of his victims. Bundy eluded arrest a year later after being transported from Utah to Colorado for a new trial, but he was apprehended within a week. He then escaped for the second time on December 30, 1977, and was able to reach Florida and begin his murder spree. Before he was apprehended, he raped or killed at least six more people, five of whom were Florida State University students.

On January 24, 1989, he was sentenced to death and died in the electric chair. Bundy had confessed to 30 killings at the time of his death, while the exact number of his victims is unclear.
