IF YOU ENJOY TRUE CRIME & THE PARANORMAL, YOU WILL LOVE READING MY ARTICLE HERE:
This Facebook page posted below is the link to the book by Liz Kendall, Ted Bundy's Soul Mate. Liz authored this extremely hard-to-find book in 1980 and it was published in 1981.
It's extremely rare and almost impossible to locate, so the owner photographed the pages and posted it for people to be able to read.
In an interview later on long after Bundy's execution, the daughter of Liz, who was also close to Bundy, explained that around the time of Bundy's execution, her mother contacted the State of Florida and state officials and pleaded to allow her to take Bundy's place in the electric chair. Her desperate request was declined and she was ultimately dismissed.
On the day of his execution, Bundy, who had converted to Hinduism, had with him a photo of her which he kept tucked inside one of his law textbooks. He always referred to her as "Poor Liz." Just before his execution, he wrote on the back of that photo, "You will always be the love of my life."
On January 24, 1989, the date of Bundy's execution after hours of emotionally frantic screaming and crying, Liz went into a catatonic state at which time her heart ceased beating. This information came from an interview with Liz's daughter, who was also very close to Bundy during the time he dated her mother from 1969 until their final breakup in 1978.
At the moment the doctors shined a flashlight into Bundy's eyes to confirm he was deceased, paramedics were also shining a flashlight into Liz's eyes to confirm she was still alive. While her pulse eventually returned to normal, Liz is said to have remained in that state for 26 years. The interview was entitled something to the effect of, 'When They Electrocuted Ted Bundy, They Also Pulled The Plug On My Mother.'
If the dates and number of years are accurate, then the Numerology is astonishing. 26 years equates to Number 8, the sign of Infinity, for example. I won't bore anyone with the Numerology aspect, however I find the situation described to be quite curious and profound.
Liz always maintained that she felt incredible guilt about having turned Bundy in to the police, as it was her tips and information that primarily lead to his arrest. Liz describes this in detail in her book.
Carol Daronch, the victim he was initially tried and convicted of attempting to kidnap, always maintained in court that she was "only 95% certain it was Ted Bundy," who had tried to kidnap her while posing as a police officer at Fashion Place Mall. There was much circumstantial evidence, as well. Had it not been for aggressive police under severe pressure to convict "someone fast," Ted might still be alive today. There was still a shadow of doubt at the close of the trial, however Bundy was not acquitted.
When we think of the Casey Anthony case, we remember that while we could prove with forensic evidence that she'd carried the dead body of her child in the trunk of her car and had buried the child in the same place her family had, over the years, buried her childhood pets, we could not prove beyond a reasonable shadow of doubt that she actually killed her daughter. The child could have died any number of ways and even accidentally. And even if she did kill the child, was it with malice aforethought? I do not agree with Casey Anthony's actions. However, in this country, we must acquit unless we have proven beyond a shadow of doubt that absolute guilt is present. Ted Bundy, as bad and as horrible as he and his acts may have been, was not afforded this courtesy.
Ted was also a kleptomaniac. He shoplifted and stole constantly, including useless items such as plaster of Paris, crutches and latex medical gloves from the medical supply company at which he worked. He was, according to Liz, in possession of these items years prior to him actually putting them to use in his crimes. (Why didn't he use them sooner?) Ted also maintained his innocence up until very close to his execution date in 1989 at which time he felt admitting to these crimes might assist in him receiving another stay of execution. After all, when he assisted the police in the Green River Killer / Gary Ridgway case, that sort of tactic had worked back then. Would you, in the 11th hour of your execution, perhaps consider admitting to crimes you may not have committed in order to receive a stay of execution?
I am not saying that Ted Bundy is at all innocent. As a matter of fact, I believe the psychiatrists were correct in saying he had an antisocial personality. (That's a psych term for a sociopath.) He caused great pain on many people, and the ripple effect of that pain is astounding. I am saying however, that I can understand how and why Liz experienced mixed emotions and guilt in her personal situation regarding Bundy.
Due to all of the above, Liz constantly maintained her feelings of guilt for having "wronged Ted," but also felt sincere guilt and a certain responsibility to his victims and their families. Talk about mixed emotions!
In case you're curious, here's her book, The Phantom Prince: My Life With Ted Bundy.
When I visited this page and read the book, I also took the time to scroll through the other posts including photos. There, I found the interview with Liz's daughter about how Bundy's execution impacted her mother in such a profound way that she empathized in a way like no other...for 26 long years.
I also came across another article on another blog website by the real estate agent who was assigned the task of remodeling and selling Ted Bundy's childhood home in Washington.
The not-so-nervous construction workers who never before believed in anything paranormal fled due to the words "Help Me" being written on the basement windows (Ted's childhood bedroom was in the basement.) Messages from the dead ended up scratched into the sawdust on the floors. Creepy things would happen. The real estate agent decided to leave the long petrified skeletons of dead birds and animals in the air vent in one of Ted's rooms...
Here is the link to that article with a video of what happened: http://www.nydailynews.com/…/ted-bundy-childhood-home-eerie…
