FBI Sets Officers’ Parley in Hopes of Clearing Up Ted Bundy Murders
The FBI on Friday said it will convene a meeting in Quantico, Va., of law enforcement agents from around the country in hopes of clearing up unsolved murders believed to have been committed by Ted Bundy.
Terry Green, an FBI major case specialist, declined to say how many would be invited to the meeting, which will take place within three weeks if the schedules of various investigators allow it.
Green works in the FBI’s Violent Criminal Apprehension office in Quantico, a clearinghouse for unsolved homicides. “We collect reports and put investigators in touch with each other so they can have joint investigations,” he said.
In the days before his Tuesday execution, Bundy, 42, confessed to 23 murders, including three in Washington to which he had not been linked. Investigators believe he may have committed as many as 100 slayings beginning in 1969.
Bundy has been linked to murders, solved and unsolved, in Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Florida, Vermont, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
In Utah on Friday, searchers used metal detectors to scour snow-covered sagebrush for the remains of a 15-year-old girl whose grave Bundy pinpointed before he died in the electric chair.
The search for Sue Curtis, who vanished in 1975 from the Brigham Young University campus in Provo, was focused about 10 miles southeast of the central Utah city of Price, Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Jerry Cowan said.
Searchers used metal detectors because the victim wore braces and in case she was wearing jewelry.
