Serial killer Ted Bundy adopted a range of false identities and alter egos while an active serial killer, and went to great lengths to alter his appearance so potential witnesses could not identify him in a line up. To seem genuine he would look up people in local phone directories and memorize their addresses.
Here are just a few of the identities Bundy would claim in order to gain a victim’s trust :
- An off-duty policeman
- An off-duty firefighter
- Security guard
- A college student named ‘Chris’ or 'Ken’
- A ski instructor
- A plain-clothed detective.
