What You Might Have Missed From Netflix’s Ted Bundy Doc, Plus Some Stuff They Left Out
Those tendencies were on full display when Ted Bundy spoke about women.
Given the incredibly violent murders and sexual assaults he committed against women, it should come as no surprise that Bundy held some deeply disturbing views about them. In the documentary, he referred to women as possessions or merchandise that could be owned. In trying to explain why a serial killer couldn’t or wouldn’t stop, he said, “Perhaps this person hoped that through violence, through this violent series of acts, if with every murder leaving a person of this type hungryâ€¦ Unfulfilled. Would also leave him with the obviously irrational belief that if the next time he did it he would be fulfilled. And the next time he did it he would be fulfilled. Or the next time he did it he would be fulfilled.”
