What You Might Have Missed From Netflix’s Ted Bundy Doc, Plus Some Stuff They Left Out
Stephen Michaud used some trickery to get Ted Bundy to divulge information about the killings.
Ted Bundy had promised to talk about the murders, and that’s what Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth were banking on for their book. But as the weeks went on, Bundy talked about everything BUT his crimes. He spoke a lot about his childhood, but always seemed to evade discussing the events that landed him on death row. Feeling the pressure from his editors and publishers to deliver the goods, Michaud played on Bundy’s ego. Knowing he had studied psychology and law, Michaud asked Bundy to talk about the murders as an expert, but in the third person. Sort of a “I didn’t do it, but if I had, this is what I would have done” type of thing. Ted Bundy fell for it hook, line, and sinker.
