What You Might Have Missed From Netflix’s Ted Bundy Doc, Plus Some Stuff They Left Out
The documentary touched briefly on Bundy’s childhood, but there might be more to that story.
Ted Bundy was born to an unmarried mother, and not much is known about his father. His mother’s parents sent her away during her pregnancy, out of shame for their unwed daughter being pregnant. She returned with Bundy, and he was raised to believe she was his sister and his grandparents were his actual parents. As if that wasn’t bad enough, some actually believe that his grandfather may have actually BEEN his biological father. There is evidence that his grandfather was abusive toward the entire family. Being the product of an abusive and incestuous relationship could explain Bundy’s own predatory sexual tendencies.
