Who is Ted Bundy, and why did he commit the crimes that he did? This study was devised to assess the life of Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific murderers in the United States. This secondary research study was conduct­ed using interviews from Bundy, biopsychosocial analyses conducted of him post-arrest, testimonials from people who knew him, and research regarding serial killer typologies and motivations. This information has been com­plied in the form of a poster board presentation, complete with the researcher’s own biopsychosocial assessment of Bundy, an analysis of the motivations for his crimes, and a timeline of his life. The results of this comprehensive analysis will provide insight on what it took for Ted Bundy to become one of the most prolific serial killers in U.S. history.
