Ted Bundy

As one of the most prolific rapists and serial killers of all time, Bundy was added to the FBI's most-wanted list in 1978 after being linked to several disappearances and killings of teen girls in Oregon, Washington and Utah. After twice escaping from prison, he gained a following more akin to a celebrity during his well-publicized trial. Though Bundy eventually confessed to 28 murders, police estimate that he was responsible for at least 100. In 1989, he was executed by Florida's electric chair at the age of 43. In February 2010, the Volkswagen Beetle where many of his brutal murders took place was added to the display at the National Museum of Crime & Punishment.
