What You Might Have Missed From Netflix’s Ted Bundy Doc, Plus Some Stuff They Left Out
Ted Bundy didn’t just use his “charm” to lure his victims. A lot of the time, he resorted to faking injuries to get his victims to help him.
One of the enduring myths about Ted Bundy is that he was able to attract to many victims because of his good looks and charm. While it may be true that he was more attractive and “wholesome” looking than we expect serial killers to be, it wasn’t just his all-American face that women trusted. As mentioned in the documentary, he would sometimes impersonate a police officer to to gain his victim’s trust. But he also exploited their kindness. Bundy would often fake injuries to lure women in, wearing a sling or pretending to have a disability. He resorted to this evil manipulation to get women to let their guards down around him.
