What You Might Have Missed From Netflix’s Ted Bundy Doc, Plus Some Stuff They Left Out
Stephen Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth pursued the interviews in order to get information for their book.
The journalists already had plans to write the book, and were looking for background information from Bundy himself. In order to gain access to the prisoner, Michaud told prison officials that he was an investigator who was working on Bundy’s appeal. Ted Bundy said he would provide details that would prove he did not commit the crimes for which he had been convicted. Says Michaud, “I didnâ€™t really believe it. I didnâ€™t disbelieve it. But I knew itâ€™d be a hell of a story either way, so I went into the prison with my tape recorder.” The interviews took place every couple of weeks.
