Ted Bundy DNA Found

A vial of Ted Bundy’s blood was located in storage at a Florida courthouse.  The vial had been stored there for three decades.  The Federal Bureau of Investigation has now uploaded the DNA from the blood into their database and are going to look for a possible link to other unsolved murder cases.

Bundy confessed to 30 murders before he was executed in Florida in 1989.  However, the real question remains surrounding other murders because Bundy hinted that the true body count was far higher.

David Coffman, the chief of forensics for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement helped to assemble the profile for the FBI.  Coffman began searching for enough of Bundy’s DNA to compare to a murder that was committed in 1961, when Bundy was 14-years old.  A 8-year old girl, Ann Marie Burr, disappeared in Tacoma, Washington.  Bundy was living in the same city at the same time.  Speculation has pointed to Bundy and the case, saying it could have been his first victim.

The DNA is now accessible to multiple police departments that have unsolved murder cases, now that a profile has been created for Ted Bundy.  Coffman said despite 30-years of storage, the blood sample is “perfect.”  The vial was discovered at the Columbia County courthouse in Florida.
