The Nation : Bundy Confesses to 10 More Murders

Theodore Bundy took responsibility for two Idaho murders and as many as eight in Utah, continuing tearful 11th-hour confessions even though they failed to bring him a stay of execution, officials said. Utah authorities had suspected Bundy in the deaths of two women and the disappearances of three others in 1974 and 1975. But in a 1 1/2-hour prison interview with a detective late Sunday, “there was one incident where he mentioned eight,” Sheriff Pete Hayward said in Salt Lake City. Idaho state Atty. Gen. Jim Jones said his chief investigator had met with Bundy and the condemned prisoner described two murders he said he committed in 1974 or 1975 in Idaho. Bundy has been on Death Row at Florida State Prison in Starke since July, 1979, and Jones said he had not been suspected in any unsolved Idaho crimes. Bundy, 42, is scheduled to die at 7 a.m. Tuesday.
