What Happened To Ted Bundy's Daughter?

Upon reading some of the above comments on the subject of Ted Bundy I found many to be amusing and most uninformed.  Although we don't have all the answers as to why a person becomes a serial killer it is generally agreed that it is a combination of nature and nurture.  People that have a personality disorder such as APD (antisocial personality disorder) many times will have a parent that also displays these tendencies.  Lionel Dahmer, father of Jeffrey Dahmer had violent fantasies, although never acted on them.  There is also a substantial number of serial killers that have suffered severe head injuries, sometimes more than once.  The fact that many were subjected to child abuse is also a contributing factor.  Although serial murder has risen dramatically in post-WWII America it is still rare as compared to other crimes.  So it is clear that when all the 'planets are aligned' just right, genetics and environment will give birth to killers like Bundy.

On the subject that Ted's daughter is better off not knowing who her father was, she obviously knows, I mean, if all of us know who her mother is certainly she knows who her mother is and thus.....

Ted Bundy wasn't allowed conjugal visits, they slipped off into a bathroom in the prison visiting room and did the deed.  Something that you folks seem to be missing is that Rosa (the name his daughter was given in one of the books) would have memories of her father.  She also had an older half-brother Jamie, who definitely would remember visiting Ted.  Ted talks about the look on his face when he found out his stepfather was a murderer.  I'm sure Rosa is well aware of who her father was...I just hope that she got to have some sort of relationship with Ted's extended family.  Ted had 2 half-brothers and 2 half-sisters, as well as mom Louise, and step-father Johnny.

This so called "serial killer gene" that some people keep referring to must be extremely over represented in the US. The serial killer per capita rate in the US far exceeds that of any other so called civilized nation. For example, Europe overall has more people but way way less serial killers at large. It is 99.9% a social problem. Genes in as much that you need a certain level of intelligence and two legs and arms to become one.

I can not help but notice that some of you are saying that bundy's wife was crazy, stupid and what not. I feel the need to point out that even professionals that death with bad people were not only shocked but also slightly afraid and confused by him. He was above all else a master manipulator and a sociopath and a lot of his friends and the people around him did not believe he did it until very late in his time in jail and legal ordeal that led up to his death. I'm sure who ever and wherever his daughter is today if she is aware who her father is she carries that burden every single day of her life. I know how it feels to have the need to make up for what a parent have done and time and time again to come to the conclusion that no matter what you do it will never change anything. It will never mend the broken hearts, it will never bring back what was taken. I hope no one ever finds out who she is because she is a victim as well and I can understand the guilt you can carry with you every single day and that is no way to live a life. The victims are so much more important than he will ever be. I just hope that when people read their names they grasp the horror and live better for them.

I can't believe that any of you would hope that she didn't have children of her own.  Yes serial killers can be born but they can also be made.  Everyone should have the opportunity to be a parent, regardless of who their parents happen to be.  Carol Anna Boone was an idiot, yes, but that is no reason for her daughter to have to pay for those mistakes by not having her own children.  Just because her father was one of the most famous serial killers ever does not mean that her children will be the same way.  With some real love and tenderness, any child can be turned around; my fiance is proof of that.  After all of the psychology I've had in the education program, I know it is possible to stop sociopathic tendencies before they start with the right attention.

Some serial killers are born, some are made. They have scientific proof now that a genetic gene can be passed on. However I believe some are not born. It depends on the situation. This doesn't mean they shouldn't have children necessarily. They could however seek counseling or something to prevent any issues from arising. Just depends on the person. I hope Ted Bundy's 
"daughter" lives a productive life. May her children as well.

Yeah, there's  NO CHANCE she remembers visiting Ted in jail. She was 3 years old at most during the last possible visit, who knows when her last actual visit was. She is definitively not carrying those memories as a 27 year old today. And even if she did remember, or her older half brother remembers, it's insane to suggest that there's any chance of them using those memories and connecting the dots to figure out who he was. If they know who he was, it's because their mother has told them, not because they not only remember seeing him but remember who he was. Seriously, please.

I'm sure she knows if she is the daughter of Ted the way the internet is today she would have to know. One thing we can say is obviously she turned out okay because I'm sure she would have been in the media by now if she hadn't. I feel her mother got with Ted was because of all the media attention. does it make her stupid yes but nobody in this life can say they have never done something stupid or something they regret.

She wouldn't need to remember her visits. All she needs to do, like I did, is Google Ted Bundy, and guess what?! Multiple pictures of her mother and her younger self posing with Ted come up online. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to recognize your own mother in a picture from 20+ years ago.

Bundy's daughter is a private person. Anyone so foolish to expose her identity may be facing a big law suit. And if I were a personal friend of hers, a beat down with a base ball bat, too.

She had nothing to do with what her father or her mother did. Her name has been changed and she has chosen never to come forward. Have some decency.

It is very frightening to think that there is a part of him (or more if she has had children) running around the world! Maybe she would have had the presence of mind not to have any children of her own! I wonder if she ever looks a these sites and sees what has been written! I find the whole thing very fascinating and extremely frightening at the same time!

His daughter has had a great life and has not even found out about her father. Although she does know about him and thinks that he is a very horrible man, but she does not know that he was her father.

If she were to Google Ted Bundy, many pictures of her WITH HER MOTHER AND HERSELF come up. There's not a snowball's chance in hell that she doesn't know who her father is.
