One of the most notorious serial killers in history, Theodore Robert Bundy was responsible for the rape and murders of at least 30 women from 1971-1974, although some estimations put his actual victim count above 100. Bundy himself said to Detective Robert D. Keppel in 1987 that there were some murders he would never talk about because the victims were “too close to home”, “too close to family”, or involved “victims who were very young”. Bundy was known for getting women to trust him (usually by feigning some sort of disability or impersonating an authoritative figure) before abducting, raping, and murdering them. He would perform sexual acts on the corpses until decomposition would not allow for it. On a few occasions, Bundy simply broke into homes and bludgeoned women while they slept. Following numerous trials, convictions, and escapes, he was executed by electrocution in 1989.

Bundy declined having a special meal as his last so he was served the “traditional” steak dinner made up of a steak (medium-rare), eggs (over easy), hash browns, toast, milk, coffee, juice, butter, and jelly. He did not eat it.
