    Hey guys, just recently read Kevin Sullivan's books on Ted Bundy and in regards to where he was to be sentenced and the issue of the death penalty according to Sullivan, Bundy in his arrogance of representing himself somehow tried to persuade the judge in a way that Bundy thought it was a win, but instead moved his case to a death penalty jurisdiction. Can't remember the details exactly, but Sullivan presents it as Bundy basically thinking he's doing something awesome, but after realizes he's screwed himself. I think he also posited that Bundy did have a death wish later on, but he would cycle and had GREAT FEAR about his death sentence. Like he would try to persuade the state to keep alive for study rather than carry out the penalty. You guys did a great job presenting this monster, devil, evil-evil-disgusting killer. Like you, he was out there on the serial killer list, but not necessarily at the top until I read Sullivan's books. He's one of the top most disgusting, psycho, serial murderers for me now. I just ask myself why????? Why was he so psychotic???? What happened in his life to make him that way??? I think you guys just determined "nature" and I guess that's gotta be it. You brought up an EXCELLENT point that the necrophilia might not have been about the act of doing that, but about the act of not having to kill at that moment. And the biggest motivator was the strangling during the act. God, he was disgusting!!!! Totally rocked the end of season 3 with Mary Pinchot and Ted Bundy. Nick & Captain, I like yo' jib!

    Dear Kelli, Thanks, yeah it's been a while since I read Kevin's book but one of the best Bundy books out there. I think Bundy could have received a 75 year to life sentence in the Florida cases but as you said he turned it down and risked death. Thank God he was convicted and the state of Florida didn't take 25 years to kill him. We can't wait for season 4! Nic

    I won't pretend to understand the inner workings of a crazy person like Bundy. But as for the rumor that he specifically tried to get tried in Florida with the risk of the death penalty... I can't help but wonder if it was another part of the rush he liked... Taking a risk, then coming out on top and feeling smarter than everyone else. If he won, he could say "Yeah, I totally got out of being put to death!" That sounds more badass than "I almost went to jail again." But it sounds like he was becoming a bit unraveled at that point, since he apparently lost all the charm that had worked in his favor before. Like your example of a drug addict, they can go from subtle about their addiction to way more obvious than they realize they are. Between this one and the following one about the Green River killer, it's baffling to realize that killers like these guys don't appear to see other people as human. To kill that many people and throw them out like garbage... there are definitely some vital screws loose in those brains.

    Ted Bundy will forever be a part of nightmares after listening to all of these episodes. Thank you guys so much for a great season - you are both so knowledgeable and really know how to keep things interesting. (you also make me say 'cut of your jib' too often). Good work, looking forward to listening next season!

    Just now listening to some older episodes and this reminded me of a couple of years ago when I was in college and lived in the Chi O house. The older members would tell us about this case to scare us when new members would move in the house. My room was right by the back door and I would always get a nervous feeling when I heard someone walking up late at night. Also, thanks for making my work more days more interesting. Yall are my homeboys.
