Ted Bundy Topics #05 10/09/2017

Bones for Time

In the days following Ted Bundy’s convictions, sentencing, and incarceration, some of those involved in the investigation and prosecution of the case took on the mantle of soothsayer and foretold the future.

  • Bob Keppel expressed his expectation that “Bundy would never talk until he felt that he’s done everything possible that could be done as far as anything legal goes.”
  • Florida prosecutor George R. Dekle, Sr. in a local news station interview predicted that, “Once all his appeals are spent and when he is on the verge of execution, he may start confessing in order to stave off the death penalty.”
  • Jerry Thompson anticipated that Bundy would “give his answers before he fries,” adding “There’s no way he’s going to do it, until he’s convinced he’s ready to go.”

These comments are the seeds from which grew the widespread expectation that Bundy would, in an attempt to prolong his life, offer to trade bodies for time when he sensed that his time was up.
