Guilt? It’s this mechanism we use to control people. It’s an illusion. It’s a kind of social control mechanism – and it’s very unhealthy. It does terrible things to our bodies. And there are much better ways to control our behavior than that rather extraordinary use of guilt.

November 8, 1984: Bundy writes about his daughter during a recent visit to see him.
  • "Dear ____,
  • I hope all is well with you, Eddie and family. I haven't heard from you in several days and I'm a bit concerned. Cold, clear weather has finally come to balmy Florida. Fall is here. It's icebox cold in the place I live. The steel and concrete hold the cold all day long. I got to see Margot last Sunday! This was something of a very pleasant surprise. Not only didn't I expect to see Margot during the trip of hers to Florida, I didn't expect to see Carole, Rosa or Jamey until after Thanksgiving. However, it is possible for someone in my position, who being "disciplined" to be granted a special visit. We thought Margot's trip to Florida from Seattle qualified as a special circumstance so last week Carole and Margot went to see the prison superintendent, who agreed to the special visit. We had six lovely hours together. Rosa has changed so much in the four weeks since I last saw her. The major difference is that she is really talking now. She won't stop. She's like a beautiful little parrot. All day it was "Daddy" this and "Daddy" that. She was very much into talking to me and generally trying to keep me to herself. "You stay here, Daddy". she'd say when I'd tell her to get back to Carole, Margot (Gamma) and Jamey. I was as pleased and delighted as I could be. Margot is enjoying herself, spending her days with Rosa, and evenings with Carole and her friends. She made Rosa a Raggedy Ann costume for Rosa for Halloween. She (Rosa) looked adorable. As much fun as she is having, I know in a week or so she'll be ready to get back to her house and garden. What happened in the election? I heard it was a Reagan landslide, God forbid. Please send me all the clippings you can on it and a damage report. My love to you, Eddie and your family. — Ted". ( Credit to: )

Cecil Hotel  

is one of LA’s most famous hotels, thanks in part to its dark history. Home to murderers, maniacs, and ghosts, some say the Cecil is anything but your average hotel, they say it’s cursed.

“During its early years, it enjoyed great success as a tourist destination and as a residence for middle class Angelinos.  However, by the 1930s this would rapidly change as the Cecil became known as a budget hotel for traveling salesmen and other transients. Series co-creator Ryan Murphy had said in numerous press conferences that the Cecil Hotel was the main source of inspiration for this season of American Horror Story, specifically the recent strange case of Elisa Lam, as well as the hotel’s lengthy history of brutal murders, crimes, and strange occurrences.”

In 1985 the Cecil was home to not only infamous serial killer Richard Ramirez, but fellow killer Jack Unterweger as well. Over the years it’s also been the sight of a string of strange deaths, most recently that of Elisa Lam.

Ramirez, aka The Night Stalker, became infamous when he terrorized LA from 1984-85, killing 13 women, all of which he did while staying in the top floor of the Cecil. According to tour guides he would dump his bloody clothes in the dumpsters out back after a night of killing.

In 1991, serial killer Johann Unterweger (a twisted serial killer homage to Ramirez) also used the Cecil as a home base. Unterweger was an Austrian visiting Los Angeles under the guise of a true-crime writer researching prostitute killings in the United States. Unbeknownst to his employers, Johann had already killed seven prostitutes before coming to America. Johann used the LAPD as unwitting accomplices, as they took him on ride-alongs through LA’s red light district. Later, Johann would return to these same spots to seek out his victims, and then return to his residence at the Cecil.
