Ted Bundy met Carole Boone the summer he worked at the Department of Emergency Services. She visited him in prison and they soon became very close. She believed he was an innocent man being framed. Bundy and Boone requested permission from the prison authority to be married but the request was denied. Bundy pulled off a coup by performing the marriage ceremony himself during his own trial and the marriage license was filled out as required in the courthouse. A notary that was hired by Boone sat among the rest of the courthouse spectators and witnessed the vows. Under Florida law, Bundy and Boone were now legally married and Boone began to receive contact visits. These visits were restricted to a kiss and a hug but somehow Bundy and Boone managed to conceive a baby girl, Rosa, who was born in 1981. As soon as Bundy admitted his guilt, Boone left him with their daughter and changed their names.
