GRAPHIC WARNING: Rarely-seen photos show serial killer Ted Bundy's crime scenes

It?€™s been 46 years since Sotria Kritsonis has traveled down Rainier Avenue in South Seattle, but she will never forget the ride she took down that road with Ted Bundy, one of the most notorious serial killers in U.S. history.??

Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers in U.S. history, confessed to 30 murders across several states during the 1970s, including 11 in Washington state.

Investigators believe his true victim count may never be known, especially during his early years here.

As part of a KIRO 7 investigation, we dug through dozens of boxes of Ted Bundy investigative evidence to search for photos.

Police and Sheriff's departments around the country sent the King County Sheriff's Department their Ted Bundy crime scene images over the course of investigation. The images were saved for decades there.

After Bundy was executed in 1989, the photo collection was transported for storage at the King County Archives.

Dozens of rarely-seen Ted Bundy crime scene photos are collected here and below.

The King County Archives are open to the public. The building's in downtown Seattle on East Fir Street.


Washington state investigators are taking a new look at crimes that could be connected to Ted Bundy.

It's been nearly three decades since Bundy was executed.

For the first time, a local woman who was picked up by Bundy shares her terrifying story on KIRO 7. 

“I knew my life was flashing in front of me,” the woman told KIRO 7.

She explained how she met Bundy in 1972, and took us back on the route he drove her one January morning in his Volkswagen – one that had the passenger door handle removed.

"He kept telling me to be quiet, shut up, don't talk again," the woman told KIRO 7.

When she tried to reach for the door, Bundy became more intense.

“He said, ‘Don’t even think about that,” she recalled him saying. “’You’re not making it. I told you that before.’”

Ted Bundy is also captured on never-before-seen video of the stalking ahead of the mass murder spree.
