What You Might Have Missed From Netflix’s Ted Bundy Doc, Plus Some Stuff They Left Out
Despite being given three death sentences, Ted Bundy maintained his innocence until shortly before he was executed.
Almost 10 years after Stephen Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth collected the hours of audio we hear in the Netflix documentary, Ted Bundy confessed to the murders of 30 women. It was apparently a last-ditch effort to stay his execution, which was just days away. But don’t think he felt any remorse over the lives he took and the many more he destroyed. Bundy told investigators, “I donâ€™t feel guilty for any of it. I feel less guilty now than Iâ€™ve felt at any time in my whole life. About anything. I mean really.” He added, “I believe I understand everything that Iâ€™ve done. I am in the enviable position of not having to feel any guilt. And thatâ€™s it.Â Guilt is this mechanism we use to control people. Itâ€™s an illusion. Itâ€™s this kind of social control mechanism and itâ€™s very unhealthy.”
