Serial killer Ted Bundy’s mother died at the age of 88 in Washington. After a lifetime spent in support of her notorious son, Louise Bundy passed away last month in her hometown, Tacoma, Washington.
Ted Bundy’s mother’s death was listed as natural. The woman was the target of heavy criticism when she showcased her undying love for a son who was considered one of the most notorious serial killers of all time. However, according to Washington Post, Louise retracted her support once her son confessed to had committed the crimes he was accused of.
Louise Bundy was a married woman and mother of five and worked at the University of Puget Sound during the 1970s, the time when her son Ted was accused for the first time of several murders. The woman disputed all charges against her son and never stopped supporting and loving him despite reason and attracting national blame.
“Ted Bundy does not go around killing women and little children! And I know this, too, that our never-ending faith in Ted – our faith that he is innocent – has never wavered. And it never will,” she told The News Tribune upon witnessing her son being convicted in 1980 for the Florida murders.
Louise changed her mind about her son’s innocence once he confessed to multiple murders and was put on death-row. Ted Bundy was executed in 1989 for killing over two dozen women. His mother’s last words to her son were: “You’ll always be my precious son.”
