Serial Killer Ted Bundy Not Linked to Murder of 8 Year Old


Investigators were unable to link notorious serial killer Ted Bundy to the disappearance of an 8-year-old Tacoma girl, Ann Marie Burr, who vanished from her home some 50 years ago. Evidence from the unsolved case was sent to the Washington State Crime Laboratory for analysis back in August. Tacoma police reported this week that forensic scientists failed to develop a DNA profile from the evidence that could have potentially linked the girl’s disappearance to Bundy. Speaking of the DNA link, Police spokesman Mark Fulghum said, “This avenue hit a dead end, but the investigation itself is not over.”

Ann Marie was reported missing by her parents on August 31, 1961. Police believe the abductor entered the house from the back door and exited with Ann Marie out the front door. Many have speculated over the years that the girl was Bundy’s first victim. Bundy had a paper route near where Ann Marie lived, and an uncle he would visit in the neighborhood. Despite the DNA setback, detectives are determined to continue the investigation into the disappearance of Ann Marie.

I had hoped that there would be a link so that her family could find some sort of closure.

 

  1. I don’t think finding out your child had been murdered by Ted Bundy would give you any closure….nightmares, yes, closure, not so much.

    • Loon,
      I doubt anyone would be happy to learn their child died at his hands.
      When I say closure i guess I mean the knowing of what happened, not having to search any longer.
      It also (for me) would give a direction to my hate, my anger and my frustration.

      Nightmares would still be but at least there would be a face to the monster.

      • Even today the name Ted Bundy sends shivers down my spine 😦
