Invisible Monsters: Serial Killers in America (2021): Season 1, Episode 2 - Part 2: Hiding in Plain Sight (1974-1977) - full transcript

In the mid-to-late 1970s, Bundy, Gacy and BTK begin claiming victims, while Dahmer and the Green River Killer inch ever closer to realizing their grim fantasies. These dangerous men were able to blend into their communities and le...

MY BROTHER WAS SIX
YEARS YOUNGER THAN ME

AND I REMEMBER HE
HAD TAKEN THE JOB

AND STARTED WORKING FOR GACY.

AND HE SAYS, OH, MOM, ME AND
THIS BOY ARE WORKING TOGETHER

AND WE'RE DIGGING
AROUND GACY'S HOUSE.

WELL, IT ENDED UP THEY WERE
DIGGING THEIR OWN GRAVES.

- FIVE OF THE MOST
PROLIFIC SERIAL KILLERS

IN AMERICAN HISTORY WERE
ALL OPERATING AT THE SAME TIME.

- JOHN WAYNE GACY.

- TED BUNDY.



- BTK.

- JEFFREY DAHMER.

- SO CALLED GREEN RIVER KILLER.

- THIS WAS THE GOLDEN
AGE OF SERIAL KILLERS.



- MY MOTHER HAD TOLD ME THAT

THE ONLY THING SHE
EVER PRAYED FOR,

FOR HERSELF WAS TO DIE
PEACEFULLY IN HER SLEEP.

AND THAT'S THE ONE
THING SHE DID NOT GET.

THREE MONTHS AFTER
THE OTERO MURDERS,

DENNIS RADER DECIDED
HE WAS GOING TO KILL AGAIN.

NOW YOU HAVE FIVE HOMICIDES

IN WICHITA, KANSAS,
WITHIN A FEW MONTHS.

WHEN JOHN GACY
HAS HIS FIRST KILL,



HE RECOGNIZES THE
POWERFUL AROUSAL COMPONENT

OF DECIDING WHETHER
THEY LIVE OR DIE.

THIS IS WHEN GACY CROSSES OVER.

HE SAYS, DEFENDED
HIMSELF AND KILLED HIM

AND BURIED HIM IN A CRAWLSPACE.

DURING THE FIRST HALF OF 1974,

THERE WERE A SERIES OF
MURDERS ABOUT ONE A MONTH.

TED BUNDY'S M.O. WAS TO

GET WOMEN TO TRUST
HIM AND GO WITH HIM.

- MY HUSBAND TOLD ME,
HE SAID SHE'S MISSING

AND THEY CAN'T FIND HER.

AND I SAID, NO, SHE'S DEAD.

WHAT SETS THIS
GROUP OF MEN APART

IS THAT THEY FLEW UNDER
LAW ENFORCEMENT'S RADAR

FOR A LONG TIME,

AND IN ORDER TO DO THAT,

THESE INDIVIDUALS HAVE TO COME
ACROSS AS BEING FAIRLY NORMAL

TO THEIR NEIGHBORS AND
TO PEOPLE THAT KNEW THEM.

YOU DON'T LOOK LIKE YOU'RE
REALLY SCARY AND DANGEROUS.

AND WHEN YOU'RE NOT KILLING,

YOU ARE SORT OF
LIVING A PRO SOCIAL LIFE,

YOU'RE ABLE TO FLY
UNDER THE RADAR SCREEN.

GACY WAS ABLE TO DO IT.

DAHMER WAS ABLE TO DO IT.

BTK WAS ABLE TO DO IT.

GREEN RIVER WAS ABLE TO DO IT.

BUNDY WAS ABLE TO DO IT.

AND WHEN YOU HAVE
THAT COMBINATION,

YOU COULD MURDER FOR YEARS
AND YEARS AND NOT BE CAUGHT.

BUNDY WAS VERY CAREFUL

IN HIS PLANNING OF HIS CRIMES.

HE'D ALWAYS TAKEN
A SINGLE FEMALE.

BUT HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS
WITH GUYS LIKE BUNDY.

YOU HAVE A SUCCESS AND THEN
YOU HAVE ANOTHER SUCCESS

AND THEN ANOTHER
AND THEN ANOTHER.

AND PRETTY SOON,

YOU START TO BELIEVE I'M SO
FAR AHEAD OF LAW ENFORCEMENT

THAT YOU START TO
BELIEVE YOU'RE INVINCIBLE.

AND THIS IS WHAT I THINK
HAPPENS AT LAKE SAMMAMISH.



LAKE SAMMAMISH STATE PARK,

IT'S A LAKE AND A PARK AND A
WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL PLACE,

PARTICULARLY IN THE
SUMMERTIME IN SEATTLE.

DIFFERENT WITNESSES SAW TED
APPROACH VARIOUS YOUNG WOMEN.

PEOPLE SAW THAT HE HAD WHAT
APPEARED TO BE A CAST ON HIS ARM

AND ASK FOR SOME
HELP WITH HIS SAILBOAT.

AND PEOPLE ALSO OBSERVED
JANICE OTT LEAVE WITH HIM.

REMEMBER, THIS WAS
AN AGE OF INNOCENCE.

I THINK IF THE LAKE SAMMAMISH
INCIDENCES HAPPENED TODAY,

THE WOMEN WOULD
BE VERY SUSPICIOUS OF,

YOU KNOW, SOME
STRANGER ASKING TO

PUT A SAILBOAT ON
TOP OF A VOLKSWAGEN.

- BUNDY ABDUCTS HER, TAKES
HER UP ABOUT TWO MILES AWAY

TO A PRESELECTED LOCATION

AND IS THERE WITH HER FOR
MAYBE ABOUT FOUR HOURS.

AFTER HE COMMITTED

THE FIRST ABDUCTION SUCCESSFULLY

AND THE POLICE
WEREN'T ON HIS TAIL,

HE FELT LIKE HE COULD COMMIT
THE SECOND CRIME OF THE DAY.

DENISE NASLUND, WHO WAS AT
THE PARK WITH HER BOYFRIEND

AND SOME OTHER FRIENDS,
WENT TO THE RESTROOM

AND SHE WAS NEVER SEEN AGAIN.

SO IN BROAD DAYLIGHT,

IN A VERY DENSELY
POPULATED PUBLIC PARK,

TED BUNDY ABDUCTED TWO
VICTIMS AND KILLED THEM.

THIS IS VERY BRAZEN,
VERY RISKY BEHAVIOR.

THAT RISK OF BEING CAUGHT
MUST HAVE BEEN SO INTENSE

AND THAT MUST HAVE BEEN
SOMETHING THAT HE REALLY CRAVED.

BUT IT ALSO MIGHT SPEAK TO HIS
OPINION OF LAW ENFORCEMENT.

WELL, THEY'RE NEVER
GOING TO CATCH ME.

THEY HAVEN'T SO FAR.

I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT.

SO IT MIGHT REFLECT
BOTH THE THRILL SEEKING

AS WELL AS HIS OWN GRANDIOSITY.

BUT WITH THE DISAPPEARANCE

OF THE OTT AND THE NASLUND
GIRLS ON THE SAME DAY

FROM THE SAME STATE PARK,
CAME THE FIRST INDICATIONS

THAT A MALE SUBJECT
WAS INVOLVED.

LEADING UP TO LAKE SAMMAMISH,

BUNDY HAS ALREADY ABDUCTED
AND KILLED FIVE WOMEN

FROM AROUND SEATTLE

AND AN ADDITIONAL WOMAN
FROM NEARBY OREGON.

LAKE SAMMAMISH IS OUTSIDE

THE CITY LIMITS OF SEATTLE.

SO THERE WAS A TASK
FORCE SET UP BETWEEN

SEATTLE POLICE AND
KING COUNTY POLICE.

THAT'S WHEN I BECAME
INVOLVED IN THE INVESTIGATION.

AS A DETECTIVE WITH THE KING
COUNTY POLICE DEPARTMENT

IN SEATTLE, WASHINGTON
AND I WAS ASSIGNED

TO INVESTIGATE A
SERIES OF HOMICIDES

THAT HAD BEEN OCCURRING
IN WASHINGTON STATE.

THAT WAS A VERY INNOVATIVE THING

TO BRING TOGETHER A GROUP
OF LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES

TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE

IN AN ATTEMPT TO
IDENTIFY THE OFFENDER.

- THEY ARE GOING TO START
AT THE VERY BEGINNING

AND GO THROUGH EVERY ONE OF
THOSE TEN SUSPECTS WE'VE GOT.

THIS IS WHAT WE'RE DOING
RIGHT NOW WITH THIS TASK FORCE.

THE NAME TED CAME
TO OUR ATTENTION

BECAUSE ONE OF THE
WITNESSES AT THE PARK

OVERHEARD TED
INTRODUCING HIMSELF.

- THEY ALSO KNEW THEN THAT

TED DROVE A LIGHT
COLORED VOLKSWAGEN BUG.

THEN THE POLICE HAD

SOMETHING TO WORK WITH.

WE WENT TO THE PUBLIC AND SAID,

WE NEED YOUR HELP;

WE NEED ANY PHOTOGRAPHS THAT
YOU TOOK AT THE PARK THAT DAY.

WITNESSES; DID ANYBODY
SEE THIS YOUNG WOMAN?

THE COUNTY POLICE SET UP
A HOTLINE AND WE RECEIVED

OVER THE NEXT TWO
WEEKS OVER 1,000 LEADS.

- THANK YOU VERY
MUCH FOR CALLING.

WE DID NOTIFY LAW ENFORCEMENT

THROUGHOUT THE WESTERN STATES

THAT WE WERE LOOKING
FOR SOMEONE NAMED TED,

SOMEONE THAT DROVE
A BROWN VOLKSWAGEN.

- A COMPOSITE PICTURE WAS
RELEASED TO THE NEWS MEDIA.

IT WASN'T A GREAT
DEPICTION OF HIM,

BUT IT GOT THE ATTENTION
OF A NUMBER OF PEOPLE,

INCLUDING LIZ KENDALL,
HIS GIRLFRIEND.

LIZ KENDALL SAYS,

GOSH, THAT SOUNDS A
LOT LIKE MY BOYFRIEND.

AND HE'S HAD SOME WEIRD
BEHAVIOR IN THE PAST.

I'M GOING TO CONTACT
LAW ENFORCEMENT.

THE INITIAL STORY

IN THE PAPER AFTER
LAKE SAMMAMISH,

WAS THAT HE DROVE A BRONZE
VOLKSWAGEN AND HER TED DIDN'T.

HER TED DROVE A VERY WASHED
OUT, FADED TAN VOLKSWAGEN.

SO SHE CALLED TO
CHECK TO SEE ABOUT

THE COLOR OF THE VOLKSWAGEN.

AND WHOEVER SHE
TALKED TO SAID, NO,

IT'S BRONZE. IT'S BRONZE.

SO THAT KIND OF
PACIFIED HER FOR A WHILE.

SHE EVENTUALLY CALLED BACK
TWO OR THREE MORE TIMES.

NO RESPONSE FROM
LAW ENFORCEMENT.

LAW ENFORCEMENT DOESN'T
BELIEVE THAT A GUY LIKE BUNDY

FITS WHAT THEY THINK IS
THEIR PROFILE OF A KILLER.

AND THEY DISMISS IT.

IN THE MID-70S,
SOCIETY, IN THEIR MIND,

HAD EITHER THIS SORT OF
MANSON LIKE IDEA OF WHAT

A KILLER WOULD LOOK LIKE OR IT
WOULD BE A MINORITY ON DRUGS.

BUT WE WEREN'T LOOKING FOR

PEOPLE THAT WERE
HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT.

TED BUNDY WAS ABLE TO CARRY ON

A NORMAL APPEARING LIFE.

HE HAD A GIRLFRIEND.

HE WAS A SHAGGY
HAIRED COLLEGE STUDENT.

TED BUNDY SIMPLY COULD

WALK THE STREETS
AS A SERIAL KILLER

AND NOBODY WOULD SAY,
OH, THAT GUY LOOKS WEIRD.

HE'S THE REASON WHY YOUNG
LADIES WOULD GO TO HIS CAR WITH HIM.

HE WAS SMART,
CHARISMATIC, GOOD LOOKING.

HE WAS TOTALLY
INVISIBLE FOR WHAT HE WAS.

SINCE THE PUBLICATION
OF THE DESCRIPTION

OF THE MAN CALLED TED,

THERE HAVE BEEN NO FURTHER
DISAPPEARANCES FROM THIS AREA.

JOHN SANDEFER FOR
ABC NEWS IN SEATTLE.

TED LEFT SEATTLE
IN 1974 IN THE FALL

AND HE ENROLLED IN LAW
SCHOOL IN SALT LAKE CITY.

WELL, TED BUNDY
DEFINITELY SEEMED

TO TAKE AN INTEREST
IN PAYING ATTENTION

TO HOW POLICE INVESTIGATED
CRIMES AND INTENTIONALLY

COMMITTED CRIMES IN
DIFFERENT JURISDICTIONS

BECAUSE HE RECOGNIZED
THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT

WOULDN'T NECESSARILY BE
ABLE TO CONNECT THE DOTS

OR THAT THEY WOULDN'T BE ABLE
TO MAKE THE CONNECTIONS EASILY.

BUNDY'S TACTIC WAS
MOVING AROUND A LOT.

HE'D JUST MOVE STATES AND
KEPT LAW ENFORCEMENT GUESSING

AND HE ACTUALLY
KILLED FOUR MORE WOMEN

BY THE END OF THAT YEAR.

HE FELT UNSTOPPABLE.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT SERIAL KILLERS

AND THIS REALLY GOES TO ALL FIVE

OF THE SERIAL KILLERS
IN THIS GOLDEN AGE,

THERE'S AN ASPECT OF
THEM, THEIR PERSONALITY,

THAT IS CONSISTENT ACROSS ALL OF
THEM THAT MAKES THEM SUCCESSFUL.

THEY ARE PSYCHOPATHS.

THEY UNDERSTAND THE
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT IS RIGHT

AND WHAT IS WRONG,
BOTH MORALLY AND LEGALLY.

THEY SIMPLY DON'T CARE.

THE PROBLEM IS FOR
LAW ENFORCEMENT,

WHEN THEY ENGAGE IN THESE
HORRIFICALLY BRUTAL CRIMES,

THEY CAN IMMEDIATELY
COME RIGHT BACK FROM THAT

AND ACT LIKE A
NORMAL INDIVIDUAL.

AND THAT MAKES IT SO
DIFFICULT TO CATCH THEM.

- WHEN DENNIS
RADER STARTED IN 1974,

HE KILLED FIVE PEOPLE
RIGHT OFF THE TOP.

FOLLOWING THE OTERO

AND THE BRIGHT MURDERS
IN WICHITA, KANSAS,

THE POLICE DIDN'T
REALLY HAVE ANY LEADS

AND THEY CERTAINLY WEREN'T
CONNECTING THESE CASES.

THEY HAD ABSOLUTELY
NO SUSPECTS AT ALL.

AND THEN PEOPLE STARTED COMING
FORWARD CLAIMING RESPONSIBILITY.

IT WAS IN THE PAPER THAT THERE

HAD BEEN AN ARREST
IN THE OTERO CASE.

SO, THE KILLER AT
THIS TIME DECIDED,

NO, NO, NOBODY'S GETTING
CREDIT FOR WHAT I DID.

RADER HAD LEFT A
BOOK IN THE LIBRARY

AND INSIDE THAT
BOOK WAS A LETTER.

AND IT WAS A MESSAGE
TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT

AND REALLY THE WHOLE
BEGINNING OF THE MESSAGING

BETWEEN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT,
THE MEDIA AND DENNIS RADER.

IN THIS LETTER,
HE GOES INTO VERY,

VERY SPECIFIC DETAIL ABOUT
EACH ONE OF THE OTERO VICTIMS.

IT IS VERY CLEAR IN THAT LETTER

THAT HE HAD COMMITTED
THE OTERO CRIME.

THE SPECIFICS OF THE
LETTER WEREN'T PUBLISHED,

NOT AT THAT TIME.

WE HAD NOT REALLY
SEEN SERIAL KILLERS

INJECT THEMSELVES
INTO THE INVESTIGATION.

WE HAD NOT SEEN SERIAL KILLERS

NECESSARILY WRITE LETTERS,

VERY PROVOCATIVE LETTERS.

AND WHEN YOU SEE THAT BEHAVIOR,

IT DOES SET THAT OFFENDER APART

BECAUSE THOSE
ARE THE INDIVIDUALS

THAT TEND TO BE
EVEN MORE ARROGANT.

THOSE ARE THE INDIVIDUALS
THAT ARE MORE GRANDIOSE.

THEY DON'T THINK THAT
THEY'RE GOING TO GET CAUGHT.

DENNIS RADER IS UNIQUE

FROM THE OTHER FOUR
SERIAL KILLERS OF THIS AGE

IN THAT DENNIS RADER,
HE WANTED A MONIKER.

HE WANTS TO GIVE HIMSELF A BRAND

AND HE SAYS, BY THE
WAY, MY NAME IS BTK

FOR BIND, TORTURE AND KILL.

YOU DON'T LOOK
FOR A SERIAL KILLER

TO BE THE GUY NEXT DOOR.

NOBODY SUSPECTED THAT.

WE WERE LOOKING FOR THE
WILD GUY, THE CRAZY PERSON.

HE DIDN'T LOOK
LIKE THOSE THINGS.

HE LOOKED LIKE A
NORMAL GUY WITH A JOB,

WENT TO WORK EIGHT
TO FIVE EVERY DAY.

AND TO ME, THAT IS THE
MOST MONSTROUS PART OF IT,

IS THAT HE WAS
THE GUY NEXT DOOR.

THE ULTIMATE SERIAL KILLER

IS ONE THAT CAN
HIDE IN PLAIN SIGHT

AND THAT'S EVIDENT IN THE
CASES OF JOHN WAYNE GACY,

GARY RIDGWAY AND DENNIS RADER.

THEY HAD A WIFE,
THEY HAD CHILDREN.

THEY HAD WORK LIVES.

SO IN 1974, RIDGWAY IS LEADING

A DOUBLE LIFE,

A DUAL EXISTENCE WHERE
IN ONE LIFE HE'S MARRIED,

HAS A STEADY JOB AND IS
SORT OF BLENDING INTO SOCIETY.

IN THE OTHER LIFE,

HE'S BASICALLY
ADDICTED TO PROSTITUTES

AND SPENDING A LOT OF
TIME WITH SEX WORKERS.

RIDGWAY WORKED FOR 30 PLUS YEARS

AT THE KENWORTH PLANT IN SEATTLE

AND HE WAS A TRUCK PAINTER.

HE SHOWED UP TO WORK EVERY DAY,

HE HAD PERFECT
ATTENDANCE, BY ALL ACCOUNTS.

JUST LIKE RIDGWAY IN 1974,

DAHMER HASN'T KILLED YET EITHER.

HE IS A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT.

HE'S A CLASS CLOWN, BUT
HE ALSO HAS THESE URGES.

SO HE GOES INTO THE BACK
YARD AND HE DISSECTS ANIMALS.

THESE ARE THE SECRETIVE
LIVES THAT THEY ARE LIVING

WHILE AT THE SAME TIME

APPEARING TO BE A
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT

OR A MODEL EMPLOYEE.

THEY WE'RE USING THIS RUSE

OF HAVING A NORMAL
LIFE TO SEEM NORMAL.

GACY WAS THE SAME WAY.

GACY KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING.

HE BUILT, CAREFULLY,
AN ENTIRE LIFE

TO LIVE A FACADE, A DUALITY

WHERE HE COULD BE SEEN,

AT LEAST ON OUTWARD APPEARANCES,

AS A HETEROSEXUAL FATHER,
HUSBAND, OWNER OF A BUSINESS.

- IN HIS NEIGHBORHOOD,
HE WAS A BIG SHOT

AND VERY POPULAR BECAUSE
HE THREW ALL THESE PARTIES.

LIKE, EVERY SUMMER, HE'D
THROW THIS GIANT YARD PARTY

AND HE'D COOK FOR EVERYBODY,
HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE.

- THEY ALL THOUGHT HE WAS GREAT.

THEY THOUGHT HE WAS A GREAT GUY.

AFTER GACY'S FIRST VICTIM,

HE DOESN'T KILL AGAIN

UNTIL 1975, THREE YEARS LATER.

GACY'S BUSINESS WAS
OPERATING FULL TIME.

GACY WOULD HIRE YOUNG MEN
FROM THE CHICAGO COMMUNITY

OR OUTLYING SUBURBS
TO WORK WITH HIM

ON THESE CONTRACTOR
JOBS FOR HIS COMPANY.

BY HIRING THESE YOUNG
TEENAGERS, GACY IS SAVING MONEY,

HE'S SEEN IN THE COMMUNITY
AS HELPING OUT YOUTH

AND GIVING BACK
TO THE COMMUNITY,

BUT HE'S ALSO
SEARCHING FOR VICTIMS.

JOHN BUTKOVICH WAS HIRED BY GACY

WHEN HE WAS 18 YEARS OLD

AND HE MET HIM IN
A HARDWARE STORE.

- ON THE NIGHT THAT HE
DISAPPEARED OR WAS LAST SEEN,

BUTKOVICH HAD COME
TO GACY'S HOUSE.

- GACY WOUND UP
OWING BUTKOVICH MONEY.

HE DIDN'T PAY HIM FOR TWO
WEEKS' WORTH OF WORK.

BUTKOVICH WAS VERY
BELLIGERENT WITH GACY,

WANTING HIS MONEY AND
THREATENING HIM AND,

YOU KNOW, SHOVING AND PUSHING.

AND THAT'S WHERE HE
GETS THE CUFFS ON HIM

AND USED HIS GARRET AND
STRANGLED HIM TO DEATH

AND BURIED HIM UNDER
THE ADDITION TO THE GARAGE

IN THE BACK.

- MISSING PERSONS,
LEO, CAN I HELP YOU?

BUTKOVICH'S PARENTS NOT ONLY

WENT TO THE POLICE STATION,

BUT THEY WOULD CALL
THEM NUMEROUS TIMES DAILY

AND THE POLICE JUST REALLY
WOULDN'T RESPOND TO IT.

THE CHICAGO POLICE
TOLD BUTKOVICH'S PARENTS

THAT IT'S NOT LIKELY THAT
A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN

WOULD BE A SUSPECT IN THE CASE.

MISSING PERSONS ARE
CONSIDERED RUNAWAYS,

MOST LIKELY,
ESPECIALLY TEENAGERS.

AND IN THE 70S, YOU'RE
TALKING ABOUT A TIME PERIOD

WHERE KIDS WOULD HITCHHIKE
AND DISAPPEAR FOR DAYS

AND THEN THEY WOULD
WIND UP COMING BACK HOME

OR SHOWING UP SOMEWHERE ELSE.

WITHOUT THE PROPER
EVIDENCE, THERE IS NO PROOF

THAT THERE WAS ANY FOUL
PLAY OR ANYTHING UNDERHANDED

GOING ON WITH THESE KIDS.

THEY WERE JUST MISSING.

YOU HAVE TO
UNDERSTAND, AT THE TIME,

GACY WAS AN UPSTANDING
COMMUNITY MEMBER.

HE WAS A GUY THAT
ENTERTAINED CHILDREN

AT PARTIES AS POGO THE CLOWN.

- HE CLAIMED HE HAD BIG
CONNECTIONS IN CHICAGO POLITICS,

THAT HE WAS A PRECINCT CAPTAIN,

YOU KNOW, HE PUT A PICTURE
ON THE WALL IN HIS OFFICE

OF HIM AND ROSLYN CARTER.

SO THE POLICE KNEW HIM.

HE WAS WELL-LIKED,
WELL-KNOWN IN THE COMMUNITY.

HE'S QUITE AN
ARTICULATE INDIVIDUAL.

AGAIN, AS A PSYCHOPATH, HE CAN,
LIKE, MANIPULATE THE SITUATION.

- GACY'S MARRIAGE TO
CAROL HOFF, HIS SECOND WIFE,

SLOWLY WENT DOWNHILL
AFTER THEIR MARRIAGE.

ON MARCH 2ND, 1976, CAROL
HOFF FILES FOR DIVORCE.

ONCE GACY'S WIFE
LEAVES THE HOUSE,

HE HAS THE ENTIRE
PROPERTY TO HIMSELF

WHERE HE WOULD
INVITE HIS VICTIMS,

WHERE HE TORTURED THEM,
RAPES AND STRANGLED THEM

AND THEN BURIED THEM IN HIS
CRAWLSPACE BENEATH THIS HOUSE.

AFTER LAKE SAMMAMISH,

BUNDY DOESN'T SLOW DOWN,

AS A MATTER OF
FACT, HE ACCELERATES

AND HE BEGINS TO ATTACK WOMEN IN

UTAH, COLORADO AND IDAHO.

BUNDY WAS GOING TO
LAW SCHOOL IN UTAH,

BUT HE WOULD JUST GO TO COLORADO

FOR LIKE A DAY OR
HALF A DAY OR TWO DAYS.

HE WAS JUST TROLLING.

IN 1975, LAW ENFORCEMENT

GETS A HUGE BREAK WITH BUNDY.

A UTAH HIGHWAY PATROL OFFICER

WAS GOING HOME TO HIS HOUSE

AND SAW A SUSPICIOUS
CAR IN HIS NEIGHBORHOOD.

IT WAS IN THE
MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

BUNDY'S CAR WAS PARKED
BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD

WITH THE LIGHTS OUT.

THE TROOPER FLASHED
HIS LIGHTS ONTO THE CAR

AND TED STARTED TO TAKE OFF,
BUT ULTIMATELY DID PULL OVER.

IN HIS VOLKSWAGENS TRUNK,

THERE WERE
HANDCUFFS, AN ICEPICK,

PANTYHOSE WITH HOLES
IN THEM, DUCT TAPE,

LICENSE PLATES FROM COLORADO,
GAS RECEIPTS FROM COLORADO.

ALSO THE SEAT WAS
OUT IN THE VEHICLE TOO,

WHICH MAKES IT A LITTLE
EASIER TO CONCEAL SOMEONE.

THOSE KINDS OF THINGS TELL YOU
THAT HE WASN'T OUT FOR A PICNIC.

TED WAS ARRESTED AND
HE WAS CHARGED WITH

EVADING THE OFFICER
FROM WHEN HE TOOK OFF.

SO THAT IS A PIVOTAL MOMENT
FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT

WHEN THEY REALLY GET
THEIR FIRST BIG BREAK

IN WHO HE IS WITH HIS
CAR AND THE MURDER KIT

AND THIS IS WHAT STARTED LAW
ENFORCEMENT TO FOCUS ON BUNDY.

THE FIND BY OFFICER
HAYWOOD OF THE THINGS

IN TED'S CAR WOULD MAKE
ANY POLICE OFFICER SUSPICIOUS.

NO ONE KNOWS THAT HE'S

THE TED THAT
EVERYONE'S LOOKING FOR

BUT IT'S COMMON PRACTICE
FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT

TO LOOK AT UNSOLVED
CRIMES IN THEIR AREA

WHEN THEY PICK UP A
SUSPECT WITH CRIME TOOLS.

THAT'S WHEN THEY
DISCOVERED THE CONNECTION

TO THE ABDUCTION
OF CAROL DARONCH.

CAROL DARONCH WAS 18 YEARS OLD,

BEAUTIFUL GIRL.

SHE'D GONE INTO THE MALL
AND THIS MAN APPROACHED HER.

TED BUNDY TOLD HER
HE WAS A POLICE OFFICER

AND SHOWED HER
SOME SORT OF BADGE

AND SAID THAT YOUR
CAR IN THE PARKING LOT,

I THINK IT'S BEEN
HIT BY SOMEONE.

AND THEN HE TOLD HER SHE
HAD TO GO TO THE POLICE STATION

WITH HIM TO SORT IT ALL OUT.

AND SHE GOT INTO
HIS CAR WITH HIM,

REALIZING AT THAT MOMENT
IT WAS A HUGE MISTAKE.

BUT WHEN HE PULLED OVER
TO PUT HANDCUFFS ON HER,

SHE MANAGED TO ESCAPE.

SHE ESCAPED AND
WAS ABLE TO PROVIDE

A DESCRIPTION OF BOTH
THE CAR AND BUNDY.

IT WAS A REALLY BIG BREAK
FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT.

THEY PUT TED IN A LINEUP

AND SHE PICKED HIM RIGHT OUT.

SHE SAID THAT'S HIM,
THAT'S THE PERSON

THAT HANDCUFFED ME IN THE CAR.

THEY ARRESTED TED BUNDY

FOR THE CAROL DARONCH
INCIDENT IN OCTOBER OF 1975.

AFTER TED WAS RELEASED ON
BAIL, HE RETURNED TO SEATTLE.

THAT'S WHEN I FIRST MET HIM.

I WAS ASSIGNED
HIS CASE ORIGINALLY

BY THE KING COUNTY
OFFICE OF PUBLIC DEFENSE.

I WAS HIS ATTORNEY
AND HIS ADVISER

KIND OF ON AND OFF
FOR SIX OR SEVEN YEARS.

I THINK THE FIRST THING
HE EVER SAID TO ME WAS,

OH, THERE'S THIS SILLY
LITTLE MATTER IN UTAH,

THAT'S EXACT QUOTE,
I'LL NEVER FORGET IT.

AND I WENT, "AH,

IT'S A LITTLE MORE SERIOUS
THAN THAT, MR. BUNDY."

AFTER TED WAS ARRESTED

IN THE CAROL DARONCH CASE,

THE MEDIA BEGAN PUTTING
TWO AND TWO TOGETHER,

IN FACT, THAT TED HAD
BEEN IN WASHINGTON STATE,

GIRLS HAD GONE MISSING.

HE LEFT AND THEN GIRLS
WERE ABDUCTED IN UTAH.

THEN THERE WAS THE
HEADLINE IN SEATTLE PAPERS,

IS UTAH TED, SEATTLE TED?

BECAUSE INVESTIGATORS
WERE FOCUSING

ON BUNDY NOW AND HIS VW BUG,

THAT VW BUG WAS IMMEDIATELY
SEIZED AND TAKEN BY THE FBI

AND DISMANTLED AT THE
LABORATORY PIECE BY PIECE,

LOOKING FOR EVIDENCE.

ONE OF THE PIECES OF
EVIDENCE THEY FOUND IN THE CAR

WAS ACTUALLY A HEAD HAIR.

BACK THEN,

THERE WASN'T A LOT OF
TECHNOLOGY FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT,

BUT THERE WAS TECHNOLOGY
FOR HAIRS AND FIBERS.

POLICE WERE ABLE
TO MATCH THE HAIR

IN BUNDY'S CAR TO
CARYN CAMPBELL,

WHO HAD BEEN
MURDERED IN COLORADO

NINE MONTHS BEFORE
BUNDY WAS ARRESTED.

- NO ONE KNEW WHAT
HAD HAPPENED TO HER.

- ON JANUARY 12, 1975,

CARYN CAMPBELL DISAPPEARED
FROM THE WILDWOOD INN.

ON FEBRUARY THE
17TH, 36 DAYS LATER,

HER NUDE BODY WAS FOUND
ALMOST THREE MILES AWAY.

NOW THAT WAS A CRIME

HE HADN'T EVEN
BEEN SUSPECTED OF.

- SO NOW COLORADO
STARTED INVESTIGATING HIM.

LAW ENFORCEMENT
HAD HIS GAS RECEIPTS

AND THEY STARTED TRACING
WHERE TED HAD TRAVELED

AND WHERE HE'D BOUGHT GASOLINE,

USUALLY WITH A CREDIT CARD.

AND HE'D BEEN AT THIS
RESORT IN COLORADO.

WE NEVER DOUBTED THAT
THE CLUES WERE THERE.

IT WAS A MATTER OF US
GATHERING THE EVIDENCE,

GETTING THE INFORMATION.

- ALL OF THE THINGS
STARTED FITTING TOGETHER

AND WE BEGAN INVESTIGATING
TED 24 HOURS A DAY.

- ONCE AUTHORITIES CATCH BUNDY

AND CONNECT HIM
TO CAROL DARONCH,

THEN THEY CONNECT HIM TO
CARYN CAMPBELL IN COLORADO.

WHEN IT BECAME CLEAR

THAT TED WAS SUCH A MOBILE GUY

AND HAD BEEN
TRAVELING THROUGHOUT

THE WEST AND THE
NORTHWEST IN HIS BUG,

THE DIFFERENT DETECTIVES
FROM THE DIFFERENT AGENCIES

MET AND SHARED ALL THE
INFORMATION THAT THEY HAD.

THE ASPEN SUMMIT
WAS REALLY CRITICAL;

30 INVESTIGATORS FROM
FIVE DIFFERENT STATES.

THIS WAS REALLY UNHEARD
OF IN LAW ENFORCEMENT.

I THINK THEY STRONGLY BELIEVED
THAT BUNDY WAS RESPONSIBLE

FOR A LOT OF THESE
HOMICIDES AND DISAPPEARANCES.

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY,
WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE?

WE NEED TO START BUILDING
A CASE WITH EVIDENCE,

WHICH IS WHAT THEY REALLY
DIDN'T HAVE AT THE TIME.

UTAH AUTHORITIES

WERE ALSO LOOKING AT OTHER CASES

THAT THEY BELIEVED PERHAPS
TED HAD BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR.

WE DEVELOPED
INFORMATION ON OUR OWN.

WE SHARED THAT
INFORMATION WITH SALT LAKE

AND LAW ENFORCEMENT
AUTHORITIES IN COLORADO AS WELL.

- THE QUESTION WAS,

I THINK FOR A LOT OF
THE INVESTIGATORS,

WAS IS TED BUNDY OUR OFFENDER?

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, HOW
DO WE CATCH BUNDY FOR MURDER?

THAT WAS, I THINK, THE
IMPORTANCE OF THE ASPEN SUMMIT.

IN SEATTLE, WE WERE
WATCHING VERY CLOSELY

WHEN TED WAS CHARGED WITH
THE CAROL DARONCH ABDUCTION

AND THE SUBSEQUENT
TRIAL AND HIS CONVICTION.

TED THOUGHT HE
COULD CHARM ANYBODY.

HE HAD A CLASSIC SOCIOPATH'S
ABILITY TO AVOID REALITY.

AND SO, YOU KNOW, I
THINK HE ACTUALLY THOUGHT

HE'D BE FOUND NOT GUILTY BY
JUDGE HANSON, WHICH WAS UBSURD.

- ON MARCH 1ST, 1976, 3RD
DISTRICT JUDGE STEWART HANSON JR

FOUND BUNDY GUILTY OF
SECOND DEGREE KIDNAPPING.

HE WAS GIVEN A ONE
TO 15 YEAR SENTENCE

AT THE UTAH STATE PRISON.

- THAT WAS A BIG STORY

WHEN HE WAS FINALLY
CONVICTED OF SOMETHING

AND HE WENT TO UTAH PRISON.

I VISITED HIM AT THE
UTAH STATE PENITENTIARY,

BUT HE THOUGHT, WELL, I'LL BE
OUT OF HERE IN LIKE NINE MONTHS.

I SAID, NO TED, COLORADO
IS THIS HOT ON YOUR TRAIL

AND SO IS WASHINGTON.

MY BROTHER WAS SIX
YEARS YOUNGER THAN ME.

HE WAS VERY INTERESTED
IN CARS AND HE WAS

A VERY, VERY BIG HOCKEY PLAYER.

AND I REMEMBER WE
WERE SITTING AT DINNER,

HE HAD TAKEN THE JOB AND
STARTED WORKING FOR GACY

AND HE SAYS, OH, MOM, ME AND
THIS BOY ARE WORKING TOGETHER

AND WE'RE DIGGING
AROUND GACY'S HOUSE.

WELL, IT ENDED UP THEY WERE
DIGGING THEIR OWN GRAVES.



WE ALWAYS HAD A TRADITION;

WE USED TO PUT THE TREE UP
THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING,

SO THAT FRIDAY WE WERE
DECORATING THE TREE,

WE GOT THE GIFTS AND WE
WOULD PUT THEM UNDER THE TREE.

GREGORY, HE GOT THIS JOB
WITH GACY FOR $5 AN HOUR.

OH, HE WAS JUST AS YOU
KNOW, LIKE ON CLOUD NINE

BECAUSE HE'S MAKING
ALL THIS MONEY.

HE'S THINKING OH, LIFE
IS GOOD, POSSIBLY THAT

HE WAS GOING TO GO TO COLLEGE
BECAUSE HE WAS A SENIOR.



ON DECEMBER 11TH,

GREGORY GODZIK WENT OUT
TO DINNER WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND

AND SUPPOSEDLY HE WAS
GOING TO GACY'S PLACE

TO PICK UP HIS PAYCHECK.

THE NEXT MORNING WHEN I WOKE UP,

MY MOTHER SAID, DID YOU
SEE YOUR BROTHER LAST NIGHT?

YOUR BROTHER DIDN'T COME HOME

AND I SAID, I HAVE NO IDEA.

AND I REMEMBER MY MOM SAYING
WE HAVE TO CALL HIS FRIENDS

AND WE CALLED, WE
TALKED TO EVERYBODY

AND THEY'RE LIKE, NOPE,
NOPE, HAVEN'T SEEN HIM.

THAT MONDAY IS WHEN
MY MOM CALLED THE POLICE,

FILLED OUT WHATEVER
SHE NEEDED TO DO.

THEY SAID, WELL,
WE'LL DO WHAT WE CAN,

BUT THEIR ANSWER ALWAYS WAS,

YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW HOW KIDS ARE.

HE'LL PROBABLY BE
BACK. DON'T WORRY.

MY MOTHER, YOU
KNOW, DID EVERYTHING

SHE POSSIBLY COULD
TO FIND HER SON.

- I CAN'T HELP IT, I
CRY ALL THE TIME.

- MY MOTHER KEPT SAYING,
IS ANYBODY DOING THEIR JOB?

YOU KNOW, NOBODY SEEMS
TO BE DOING THEIR JOB.

YOU REALLY THINK
THAT THIS ISN'T REAL.

YOU CANNOT BELIEVE
THAT IT'S HAPPENING TO YOU.

YOU KEEP THINKING, WELL, MAYBE,

WELL JUST MAYBE
HE MIGHT COME BACK.

WHEN GREG GODZIK DISAPPEARED

LIKE THE OTHERS, THERE
WAS A POLICE REPORT ON IT

AND THAT SOMEONE WENT TO GACY

AND TALKED TO THEM AND AS USUAL,

HE SIMPLY DENIED IT AND
SAID, YEAH, HE WORKED FOR ME.

I KNOW THE KID. HE
WAS A GOOD WORKER.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT
HAPPENED TO HIM.

HE WASN'T HERE.

SINCE GACY WAS ONE OF

THE LAST PEOPLE TO SEE
GREGORY GODZIK ALIVE,

ONE WOULD THINK
THAT THE AUTHORITIES

WOULD LOOK INTO
GACY'S BACKGROUND

AND FIND HIS RECORD OF
SODOMY, BUT THEY NEVER DID.

WITHOUT A BODY, YOU
DON'T HAVE A MURDER,

YOU GOT MISSING
PERSONS, RUNAWAY KIDS,

NONE OF THAT'S A CRIME.

THERE ARE A FEW REASONS

WHY POLICE WERE UNABLE TO
CONNECT GACY TO THESE CRIMES.

ONE, YOU HAVE TO
REMEMBER THAT IN THE 1970S,

RUNAWAY CULTURE WAS RAMPANT.

SECOND, COMPUTERS WERE
NOT USED IN POLICING AT THIS TIME.

AND THIRDLY, POLICE DISTRICTS
DO NOT SPEAK TO EACH OTHER

AND DO NOT SHARE INFORMATION.

SO JOHN BUTKOVICH LIVED
ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE CITY.

GREGORY GODZIK LIVED ON THE
NORTHWEST SIDE OF THE CITY.

BUT NEITHER OF THOSE DISTRICTS
WOULD HAVE SHARED INFORMATION

ABOUT THE TWO YOUNG
MEN'S DISAPPEARANCES.

THERE JUST WASN'T
ANY COMMUNICATION.

IN THOSE DAYS, THERE WAS
NO WAY TO CONNECT THE DOTS.

GACY THOUGHT HE'S

SMARTER THAN EVERYBODY ELSE.

HE'S SMARTER THAN THE COPS,
SMARTER THAN THE DETECTIVES,

GACY REALLY EPITOMIZED

THE COMPLETELY
ORGANIZED SERIAL KILLER,

BUT SO DID DENNIS RADER.

DENNIS RADER HAD A BTK SIDE

AND HE ADDED DENNIS
RADER, THE FAMILY MAN SIDE.

BUT HE WILL DESCRIBE
TO US LATER IN INTERVIEWS

THAT HE MUCH
PREFERRED THE BTK SIDE.

THAT'S WHERE HE
REALLY WANTED TO BE

AND HIS FAMILY
JUST GOT IN THE WAY.

A COUPLE OF YEARS AFTER THE

OTERO'S AND KATHRYN
BRIGHT WERE MURDERED,

HIS FIRST SON WAS BORN.

SO WE TOOK A BREAK
FROM THE MURDERS.

WHEN A CRIMINAL GOES DORMANT,

YOU START TO WONDER, HAS
HE LEFT THE AREA, IS HE DEAD?

WHEN SOMEBODY GOES
DORMANT, IT'S NOT LIKE,

OKAY, GREAT, WE CAN REALLY
WORK ON THE CASE NOW.

THERE'S A REASON THEY GO DORMANT

AND SOME OF THEM
AREN'T ALWAYS CRIMINAL.

IT CERTAINLY WASN'T THAT
WAY WITH DENNIS RADER.

DENNIS RADER WENT
DORMANT BECAUSE

HE HAD FAMILY OBLIGATIONS.

WHILE THIS, ON THE OUTSIDE

APPEARS AS A
PERIOD OF INACTIVITY,

EVEN THOUGH HE'S NOT KILLING,

HE STILL MAY BE STALKING,

FANTASIZING ABOUT THE
MURDER, REENACTING THE FANTASY,

REENACTING THE EVENTS,
ALLOWING THE FANTASY TO CONTINUE

AND TO STRENGTHEN TO THE
POINT WHERE HE HAS TO ACT ON IT.

- DENNIS WAS DRIVING HIS
WIFE TO AN APPOINTMENT

WHEN HE HAD SEEN
NANCY GETTING HER MAIL.

RADER WAS VERY CAREFUL

ABOUT PLANNING OUT HIS
ATTACKS AND SELECTING HIS VICTIMS

OR AS HE CALLED THEM,
PROJECTS VERY CAREFULLY.

- NANCY FOX WAS A SWEET
DAUGHTER OF A LOCAL FAMILY.

HE SAW HER JUST, YOU
KNOW, OUT AND ABOUT.

NONE OF THESE MURDERS ARE
LINKED TOGETHER WITH ANYTHING.

THEY'RE JUST, OH, I
LIKE HER, SHE'S NEXT.

THAT WAS THE HARD
PART FOR THE POLICE.

THAT'S THE SCARY
PART FOR THE PUBLIC.

HE CUT HER PHONE LINES

IN THE BACK OF THE HOUSE.

HE BROKE IN THROUGH
A BEDROOM WINDOW

AND WAITED FOR HER UNTIL
SHE GETS BACK FROM WORK.

ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS
THAT NANCY FOX DID

WHEN SHE DISCOVERED
HIM IN HER HOME

IS SHE WENT TO HER PHONE
AND THE LINE WAS DEAD.

IN THE 70S, IT WOULD
BE VERY SIGNIFICANT

IF YOU CUT SOMEONE'S PHONE LINE

AND HE'LL EVEN TALK ABOUT HOW
IT WOULD BE DIFFERENT NOWADAYS

BECAUSE HE COULDN'T STOP
SOMEBODY'S CELL PHONE.

DENNIS RADER DIDN'T THINK ANYONE

APPARENTLY WAS GOING TO
KNOW ABOUT THIS MURDER,

SO HE GOES TO A PAY PHONE,
CALLS THE POLICE STATION.

IT'S A PRETTY BRIEF CALL

AND IT WASN'T PUT OUT
INITIALLY RIGHT AWAY.

THEY HAD A LOT OF
PEOPLE LOOK INTO IT,

YOU KNOW, LINGUISTICS PEOPLE.

DENNIS RADER MAKING A PHONE CALL

VERY CLOSE TO HIS CRIME SCENE

MAY REFLECT AN
INTENSIFICATION OF THAT RUSH

ASSOCIATED WITH COMMITTING
A CRIME AND NOT BEING CAUGHT.

AND NOW, HE JUST NEEDS
TO TAKE IT UP A NOTCH

AND MAKE IT AN EVEN
RISKIER BEHAVIOR.

SO THAT MIGHT ADD TO THE THRILL.

AND IT'S ALSO, I THINK,
CONVERSELY, INTERESTING

THAT WE SEE THE SAME
RELATIONSHIP IN MANY CASES

BETWEEN THESE SERIAL
KILLERS AND THEIR VICTIM.

ON ONE HAND, THEY PLAY
THE ROLE OF THE MOUSE

RELATIVE TO THE
POLICE, WHICH IS THE CAT,

BUT IN THEIR OWN
WORLD, IN KILLING,

THEY ARE NOW THE CAT AND
THE VICTIMS ARE THE MICE.

TED WAS CONVICTED

FOR THE CAROL DARONCH ABDUCTION,

SO HE WAS SENTENCED TO
SPEND UP TO 15 YEARS IN PRISON.

TED WAS IN THE UTAH STATE PRISON

AND HE WAS CHARGED IN COLORADO

ABOUT NINE MONTHS
AFTER HIS CONVICTION

IN THE DARONCH MATTER.

- BUNDY IS ACCUSED OF MURDERING

CARYN CAMPBELL OF
DEARBORN, MICHIGAN.

SHE WAS VACATIONING IN
ASPEN AT THE TIME OF HER DEATH

IN JANUARY OF 1974.

LAW ENFORCEMENT IN COLORADO

DETERMINED THEY HAD
ENOUGH TO CHARGE HIM

WITH THE MURDER
OF CARYN CAMPBELL.

SO HE WAS MOVED
TO A JAIL IN COLORADO.

THE JAIL IN ASPEN

IS THE PITKIN COUNTY COURTHOUSE.

SO TED WAS REPRESENTING HIMSELF,

ALONG WITH THE PUBLIC DEFENDERS
AND THE AUTHORITIES IN ASPEN

WHO WERE REALLY NICE ABOUT
ENFORCEMENT PEOPLE LET HIM USE

THE LAW LIBRARY AND
BASICALLY UNSHACKLED HIM

FROM TIME TO TIME.

AND HE JUMPED OUT
OF THE WINDOW ONE DAY.

- GOOD EVENING,
CONVICTED UTAH KIDNAPPER,

THEODORE BUNDY,
HAS ESCAPED, ESCAPED.

- THE LAST TIME WE LOOKED,
THE DEFENDANT WAS THERE,

THE NEXT TIME WE
LOOKED, HE WAS GONE.

- SECOND FLOOR WINDOW
ON THE CORNER THERE.

GUARDS WAITED OUTSIDE THE
ROOM, BUT BUNDY WAS ALONE INSIDE.

- THE FBI SAID BUNDY ESCAPED
FROM A JAIL NEAR ASPEN, COLORADO

- AND REMAINS AT THIS HOUR
THE SUBJECT OF A MANHUNT.

THAT WAS A PRETTY MONUMENTAL DAY

WHEN HE WENT TO THE LAW LIBRARY.

HE WAS ALONE.

HE WAS ALONE ON
TRIAL FOR MURDER.

HE WAS ALONE IN THE LIBRARY.

TWO STORIES UP FROM THE GROUND.

SECURITY WAS AT A MINIMUM.

HE DIDN'T LOOK LIKE
THE HARDENED CRIMINALS

THEY WERE USED TO DEALING WITH.

I DON'T BELIEVE THEY HAD

ANY VIDEO SURVEILLANCE AT ALL.

THE PITKIN COUNTY
SHERIFF'S OFFICE

WAS GREATLY
EMBARRASSED, OBVIOUSLY.

NOWADAYS, THOSE PEOPLE
WOULD BE SHACKLED.

THEY'D PROBABLY HAVE
AN ANKLE MONITOR ON THEM

THAT THEY CAN'T CUT OFF.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE THAT
TECHNOLOGY BACK THEN.

AND SO THERE WAS A MAJOR
MANHUNT ALL OVER THAT AREA.

- THE SEARCH AROUND
ASPEN, NOW IN ITS THIRD DAY,

IS BEING WOUND
DOWN, BUT A SPOKESMAN

FOR THE PITKIN COUNTY
SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT

SAYS THE DRAGNET WILL
DEFINITELY CONTINUE.

- I THINK IT'S REALLY
SCARY. I DON'T LIKE IT.

I JUST, I WISH THEY
WOULD JUST CATCH HIM.

IT MADE THE COUNTY
LOOK REALLY DUMB

THAT HE COULD JUMP OUT
OF THE WINDOW AND ESCAPE.

JUST THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE

IS CERTAINLY AT FAULT IN TERMS
OF SECURITY IN THE COURTROOM.

AND WE HOPE WE'VE
CHANGED THAT AT THE MOMENT.

- I BELIEVE THAT TED DID GET

SOME SORT OF THRILL FROM

PLAYING A GAME WITH
LAW ENFORCEMENT,

PLAYING A GAME WITH
THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM,

PLAYING A GAME WITH HIS VICTIMS.

HE WAS OF THE BELIEF
THAT HE WAS SO SMART,

SO CAGEY THAT HE COULD
HANDLE ANY SITUATION

AND DO SO IN SUCH A WAY
THAT MADE HIM FEEL LIKE

HE WAS SUPERIOR TO OTHERS.

- THE STREETS OF
ASPEN ARE SAFE AGAIN.

SUSPECTED MULTIPLE
MURDERER THEODORE BUNDY,

WHO'S ESCAPED FROM PITKIN
COUNTY AUTHORITIES LAST WEEK,

TERRORIZED THE ASPEN AREA,

IS BACK IN CUSTODY AFTER AN
ABSENCE OF NEARLY SEVEN DAYS.

WHEN HE GETS ARRESTED,

THEY TAKE HIM TO
THE JAIL IN GLENWOOD.

AND THAT'S A MORE MODERN JAIL

THAT'S SUPPOSEDLY
A MORE SECURE JAIL.

I NEVER THOUGHT THE AUTHORITIES

WOULD ALLOW HIM TO
ESCAPE A SECOND TIME.



- MY PHONE RANG AND THEY SAID,

SHERIFF, WE'VE GOT MURDERS AND
INJURIES AT THE CHI OMEGA HOUSE.

HE WAS REALLY OUT OF CONTROL

TO ATTACK FIVE
WOMEN IN ONE NIGHT.

DENNIS RADER APPARENTLY WANTS

JUST AS MUCH
ATTENTION AS TED BUNDY.

- HOW MANY DO I HAVE
TO KILL BEFORE I GET

MY NAME IN THE PAPER OR
SOME NATIONAL ATTENTION?

- THAT'S A QUOTE THAT
YOU DON'T FORGET.

AFTER THAT, WICHITA WAS SCARED.

- JEFFREY DAHMER IS 17 YEARS OLD

AND ABOUT TO COMMIT
HIS FIRST MURDER.

DAHMER DOESN'T
WANT HIM TO LEAVE.

AND THE ONLY WAY THAT
HE COULD FIGURE OUT

HOW TO DO THIS WAS WITH
MASSIVE BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA.

- I ASKED HIM IF HE WAS
THE GREEN RIVER KILLER.

HE SAID NOTHING, JUST
A PLAIN BLANK LOOK.

I AM THE ONLY SURVIVOR
OF THE GREEN RIVER KILLER.

- WELL IF YOU KILL 30 SOME
PEOPLE AND NEVER GET CAUGHT,

YOU BEGIN TO THINK YOU'RE
NEVER GOING TO GET CAUGHT.

HE LOOKS AT ME RIGHT
IN THE FACE AND HE SAYS

"YOU KNOW DAVE, CLOWNS
CAN GET AWAY WITH MURDER."
