Ted Bundy's mother, Louise Bundy, has died. The mother of the notorious serial killer died last month at her hometown, Tacoma, Washington at the age of 88. The cause of death is being listed as natural. Ted Bundy's mother drew a lot of criticism because even though her son was one of the most notorious serial killers to ever walk the planet, she didn't stop loving him. However, according to a Jan. 9 Washington Post report, she no longer supported him after he confessed to the murders.
Louise Bundy was married, had five kids and worked at the University of Puget Sound back in the 1970s. This is also around the time when one of her children, Ted Bundy, began to draw national attention because he was being accused of several murders. However, she disputed these accusations against her son by saying,
“Ted Bundy does not go around killing women and little children!” she told The News Tribune in 1980 after Ted Bundy was convicted in the Florida killings. “And I know this, too, that our never-ending faith in Ted - our faith that he is innocent - has never wavered. And it never will.”
However, she had a change of heart once Ted Bundy confessed to multiple murders which put him on death-row. Ted Bundy finally told authorities that he was responsible for the deaths of more than two dozen women. He was later put to death in 1989. On his execution day, his mother's last words to him were,
“You’ll always be my precious son.”
