Ted Bundy’s long-term girlfriend speaks for first time in 40 years in new documentary
More than 30 years after his execution, Ted Bundy is still regarded as one of the most infamous serial killers in history. His five-year-long murder spree killed at least 14 people and left many other survivors of his brutal attacks traumatized for life.
Outwardly a handsome, charismatic young man, the people in Theodore Robert Bundy's life that thought they knew him were shocked and appalled by his horrendous crimes: no one more so that Elizabeth Kloepfer - his long-term girlfriend at the time of his rampage.
Now Kloepfer, who currently goes by the second name Kendall, has opened up for the first time in 40 years about her relationship with the vicious psychopath.
Check out the trailer for the documentary below:
Airing on Amazon Prime, the five-part series is entitled: Ted Bundy: Falling For A Killer. It delves into the experiences of the women closest to him including Liz and her daughter, Molly, with a series of interviews exploring the horror felt by those who escaped Bundy's killing urges.
In the trailer for the documentary (set to air on Monday, February 3) Kendall states: "This story has been told many times by men. Now is the time to talk about our own story from beginning to end, because we lived, and so many people didn’t ... I fell in love with him from day one, but there were all these coincidences. I couldn’t let it go."
Kloepfer, a divorced secretary at the time, first met Bundy in 1969 while studying at Seattle's University of Washington as a psychology major. She knew nothing about his homicidal proclivities and was unaware that he was also dating an ex-girlfriend for some time in 1973. The two dated for six years before breaking up after Bundy was found guilty.

Kloepfer's relationship with Bundy was later dramatized in the movie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, which starred Zac Efron as Bundy and Lily Collins as Kloepfer.
