What You Might Have Missed From Netflix’s Ted Bundy Doc, Plus Some Stuff They Left Out
The serial killer volunteered with a suicide hotline in college.
This is one of those almost-too-twisted-to-be-true Ted Bundy facts. While he was a college student, Bundy volunteered at a suicide hotline. It’s mind-blowing that someone who inflicted so much pain and suffering on people, a person who seemed to revel in death, would have at one point tried to keep people from killing themselves. We wonder if maybe he did it to gain some insight into the human condition? Learn about weaknesses in the psyche he could eventually exploit? This is where he eventually met Ann Rule, the true crime author who wrote about her time with Ted Bundy in “The Stranger Beside Me”. Rule says that Bundy was not very good at his job at the hotline.
