So the last 3 documentries I've watched on Ted Bundy, all three of them labeled him the most evil and dangerous seriel killer in American history. Now I'm not defending him, please do not think that. However I'm curious why he was given this title.

He was listed at having 30+ victims. However counting the list there are 53 OVER 30+ possible victims. Some are in 100s, 200s and even two in the 300s.

With that being said how did he gain that title over the other 53 who possiby killed hundreds more than he ever did

I'd just got through reading a couple of books on Bundy, and re reading the Stranger beside Me. My guess is that he looked and acted fairly normal, was intelligent,handsome and worked at least briefly among the political elites in the Northwest. He was incredibly cunning avoiding arrest one time on the side of the road right after killing and dumping a body. And then there are the 2 escapes from custody, one where is moved across country avoided getting caught and set up a new life and identity in Tallahassee Fl. all while being high up on the most wanted list,and continued killing not just hiding. His girlfriends never connected anything until it was obvious. He could switch it off and on. The author of the Stranger Beside Me worked with him at a suicide hotline and knew him very well, and she had no clue. He was one of those that could hide in plain site.

Overall, I think the title is given due to how he wasn't what one would expect of such a killer. That his type of killer was still to be more known and explored of why and how he was capable, while not being a first for that.

I believe there's one or two people on this very site who knew him or knew people who knew him, hope they can chime in to help answer.

Be has the top title? Really?
Personally I think it goes to Jeffrey Dahmer.

Bundy is no more evil or dangerous then any other cold blooded killer. His title is courtesy of the media who wants a story to create a real life horror film.

As others have said it was his ability to function and blend in to society at a high level, which a good deal of serial killers do and his body count. Giving them titles boosts their egos and legitimizes their work.

"Jack The Ripper" comes to mind who was never found by the way and new evidence suggests he may of even been HH Holmes, an American serial killer.

There is a decent series on youtube called Programmed To Kill, over 100 parts. There is also a good series called Most Evil with Michael Stone who has a crude scale that scores peoples evil based on their crimes (lol).

Media sensationalism. It doesn't mean anything. It's what you get when you put a bunch of bloodthirsty idiots in charge of distributing information.

If it bleeds it leads .

My choice for the most evil serial killer in the US is the green river killer.

I tumbled down the rabbit hole of reading up on serial killers after your post. In terms of the USA no he is at or near the top in terms of world wide he is a small fry.

The two worst killers of all time operated out of Colombia and Ecuador and the guy with 300+ child torture rape murders they let go in the official story.

If you read between the lines however from eye witness accounts he was last seen cuff’d and being taking out back with 3 officers so I think they released him from life which is good.

* Also, I think they were trying to push the idea that porn causes men to go crazy and kill women by conducting an interview with good ole Ted where he said porn made him do it. But it turns out that Ted was a pathological liar so only the crazy anti-porn zealots believed him (funny that their entire argument is based on a confession provided by a pathological liar and serial killer and general psychopath).

Anyway, I just remembered that. The big interview in which Ted tried to blame all his crimes on other things.

It don't matter to me because no one is worst than the #ing kid killer down in Australia that taped, tortured and killed hundreds of kids and sold it on the dark web. They are going to reinstate the death penalty for souless #. There is nothing less that this guy deserves....maybe continuous torture on a daily basis for years but who in there right mind can do that as well.

Andrew Jackson killed more innocent men, women and children than anyone mentioned so far when he ordered the 5 nations who had assimilated to our culture to be forced off their farms and towns and marched hundreds of miles to lands no one wanted.In defiance of the Supreme Courts ruling at that.And the Bender family racked up a big score,H.H. Holmes killed a lot of people,admitted to 27.Been lots of killing through the years,and those are the ones we know of,probably some that make Bundy look like a amateur that's never been caught.

I believe this was his last interview before riding the lightning. It didn't come across that he was blaming everything on porn. I think he was just saying that it played a role in the escalation of his crimes. He is not the only serial killer to say this and what would they have to gain by lying about it?

Sexual frustration manifests in a multitude of ways. The Ontario van terrorest for example and a multitude of school shooting.

"Pathological liar"

Look it up. They don't have to have anything to gain by lying. It's just what they do. What did he have to gain by murdering a bunch of people?

It means you can't believe anything they say. The interview was just a typical media sideshow like they always do whenever they can get away with it.

1. Most serial killers are men.

2. Most men watch porn.

3. Most men do not murder 200 people, regardless of what kind of entertainment they consume.

4. Ted Bundy was a psycho who murdered people just because. Anything he has to say about it is inconsequential because he obviously knew it was wrong (he didn't get caught for a long time so he was obviously being sneaky about it)

He's one of the top if not the top for sure, and not just because I met a man who mother was killed by him.
That thing lives too.
