Dr. Mike Aamodt, forensic psychology professor at Radford University, on why female serial killers have declined over the years, why there was a big jump in serial killings in the U.S. between the 1960s and 1980s and his most surprising finding in his research of serial killers.
Psychologist Al Carlisle, who was part of a diagnostic team at Utah State Prison who evaluated Ted Bundy, talks about the serial killer's lonely childhood, participation in illegal activities at a young age and strong desire to control women, which Carlisle believes led to his psychopathic tendencies as an adult.
Ted Bundy was one of the most prolific and notorious serial killers in American history. He confessed to murdering at least 36 women, in at least six states, most during the 1970s. Some estimates put the number of his victims as high as 100. But to many people, he was also one of the sexiest serial murderers.
