MEDIA : Paper Runs Photos of Bundy's Body

The Weekly World News went on sale today at supermarkets across the country today showing post-execution photos of serial killer Ted Bundy. Its editor defended the graphic pictures, saying they might deter other would-be killers.

"If it is a deterrent to one potential killer, then we were right to publish the photographs," said Eddie Clontz, the managing editor of the National Enquirer's sister publication. A Department of Corrections spokesman denied that the photos could have been taken while the body was in state custody. It was transferred to a private funeral home.
