2. He Proposed To A Witness While In Court
With his back against the wall and pressure mounting, Ted Bundy was running out of options for his defense. In a last ditch effort to either shock the court or somehow prove his innocence, Ted Bundy took advantage of an obscure rule in Florida courts that said that any declaration of marriage in front of a judge meant a legally recognized union. In a wildcard move, Ted Bundy proposted to Carole Ann Boone, she said yes, and right then and there they were unified as man and wife.
Ted Bundy met Carole Ann Boone much earlier when the pair worked together at the Department of Emergency Services in Washington State in the early 1970s. Colleagues, friends, and acquaintances all agreed that Ted Bundy and Carole Ann Boone had quite the relationship throughout the years. Ever the manipulator, Ted Bundy kept Boone in his back pocket and eventually had her serve as a character witness numerous times during the trial. The sudden marriage proposal was shocking, but ultimately it served no purpose in his trial.
