Rose Bundy (Ted Bundy Daughter), also recognized as Rosa, is assumed to be the only child of the infamous criminal Ted Bundy.
Countless people love to be recognized and famous for respectable reasons. But nobody wants to have fame in a controversial way, hence, negative publicity is avoided because it comes with many problems.
This same is the case with Rose Bundy, Ted Bundy daughter, who has experienced a limed light life since her birth.
Many documentaries have been made and films have been released and books published, attempting to cover the life of the American notorious serial killer and his family.
Some of them include Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019), Ted Bundy (2002), Fry Day (2017), The Only Living Witness (Stephen G. Michaud, 1993), and The Stranger Besides Me (Anne Rule, 1980).
At times, some people follow and read them to know more about Ted Bundy’s daughter.
Who is Rose Bundy?
Rose Bundy was born in October 1982, making her 38 years old.
Her mother Carole Ann Boone met Ted Bundy while serving at the Department of Emergency Services (DES) in Olympia, Washington.
Ted Bundy and his wife Carole Ann Boone had an unusual relationship. They met as co-workers at the Department of Emergency Services in Olympia, Washington in 1974.
According to Hugh Aynesworth and Stephen G. Michaud’s The Only Living Witness, Carole was attracted to Bundy instantly, and though he showed an interest in dating her, the relationship remained rigidly platonic at first.
Carole Ann Boone attended the 1980 Orlando trial of Bundy for the killing of Chi Omega sorority girls Margaret Bowman and Lisa Levy, where the serial killer appeared as his own defense attorney.
Rose Bundy even called Boone to the stand as a case witness. The soon-to-be mother of Rose Bundy had even recently relocated to Gainesville to be nearer to Ted Bundy, about 40 miles from the prison.
Carole Ann Boone not only managed conjugal visits with Bundy but also purportedly smuggled drugs and money into the jail for him.
Ultimately, while Boone took the stand in the defense of Bundy, the criminal proposed to her.
A true-crime author Ann Rule revealed in her Ted Bundy biography, The Stranger Beside Me, an old Florida law affirmed that a declaration of marriage in court in front of a judge is regarded as a binding agreement.
Since the pair could not find a minister to oversee their vows, and officials at the Orange County jail prohibited them to use the facility’s chapel, the law student Bundy found the loophole.
As Rule alarmingly shows out, the second anniversary of Bundy’s cruel kidnapping and murder of young Kimberly Leach — a 12-year-old girl — marked Boone and Bundy’s first wedding anniversary.
It would not be long before the couple had a daughter of their own, Rose Bundy.
Conjugal visits were banned for the prisoners on death row, but according to former friend Ann Rule’s 1980 biography of Bundy, The Stranger Beside Me, inmates were known to pool money to approach guards to let them alone time with their female visitors.
Other rumors started to circulate about the logistics of Rose’s conception. Some considered that Boone had smuggled a condom into prison, had Bundy transfer his genetic material into it, knot it shut, and return it to her through a kiss.
As Rule points out, however, the circumstances of Bundy’s confinement did not need such extreme, imaginative means. The bribing of guards was not only achievable, but common, and allowed the couple to have sex in various corners of the facility, behind a water cooler, on a table in the prison’s outdoor “park,” and in several rooms which people reportedly even strolled into a few times.
