8. After His Arrest, Nobody Knew He Was Actually A Famous Serial Killer
When officer David Lee had arrested Ted Bundy on that February night in 1978, he had no idea who he put in the backseat of his Florida squad car. Ted Bundy had no identification and was driving a stolen car. Upon inspecting the vehicle, David Lee took note of dozens of stolen credit cards, college identifications, and even a television set.
During the ride to lock-up, David Lee thought it odd that his suspect kept repeating, “I wish you had just killed me back there.” David Lee had assumed he had a petty thief on his hands. It wasn’t until the next morning that officers at the jail realized who they had in their cell was in fact the man at the top of the FBI’s most wanted list, Ted Bundy.
