Ted Bundy was a serial murderer who abducted, raped, and killed at least 30 women between 1974 and 1978. Over the course of his criminal career, a handful of women either escaped from or experienced near misses with Bundy. One of those women was our source today, Rhonda Stapley. She was abducted, raped, and nearly murdered by Bundy. If you need a trigger warning for this article, it was everything you've read so far.

In August 1974, Bundy was accepted at the University of Utah law school, and he almost immediately started murdering women there. On October 2, he killed a 16-year-old named Nancy Wilcox.
