Netflix has released the first trailer for its brand new docuseries, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes. 

The series is based off of a book by the same name, written by Stephen G. Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth, who interviewed the notoriously handsome and charismatic murderer who is believed to have killed dozens of women.

Over 100 hours of never before heard audio from those sessions from death row will be incorporated into the series, giving true crime enthusiasts unbelievable access to the inner workings of Bundy’s mind. 

‘I mean, I’m not an animal and I’m not crazy and I don’t have a split personality,’ Bundy can be heard saying in the trailer for the show. ‘I’m just a normal individual.’ 

Bundy was eventually convicted of killing a pre-teen girl, and two sorority members in Florida, after the second time he had escaped from custody on other murder charges. 

Season one of the series drops on January 24, which is the 30th anniversary of Bundy’s execution.

‘He didn’t look like anybody’s notion of somebody who would tear apart young girls,’ a man’s voice says as the trailer begins.

And a moment later, Bundy’s voice is heard for the first time in the clip. 

‘My name is Ted Bundy,’ he says. ‘I’ve never spoken to anybody about this, but I am looking for an opportunity to tell this story as best I can.’ 

As the chilling words infiltrate the viewer’s ears, evidence from Bundy’s crime scenes flash across the screen.

Bundy confessed to killing 30 women in seven states, including Washington state, Idaho, Utah and Colorado, before he was executed by electric chair on January 24, 1989 in Florida for the murder of 12-year-old Kimberly Leach (pictured)

Beautiful women, ski masks, gloves, rope, hand cuffs, a sharp object, a flashlight… and then a badly decomposed skull lying in a wooded area were shown.

‘Murder, leaving a person of this type hungry… unfulfilled… would also leave him with the obviously irrational belief that the next time he did it, he would be fulfilled,’ a man’s voice says. 

‘And the next time he did it, he would be fulfilled. Or the next time he did it, he would be fulfilled.’ 

Traveling across state lines, he was known to prefer female victims with long, dark hair, parted down the middle. 

Bundy confessed to killing 30 women in seven states, including Washington state, Idaho, Utah and Colorado, before he was executed by electric chair on January 24, 1989 in Florida for the murder of 12-year-old Kimberly Leach, who he killed one month after slaying Lisa Levy and Margaret Bowman at Florida State University.

He was known as a charming man, who earned the trust of his victims before luring them to a secluded place to murder them. 

He would also enter the rooms of sleeping college students and bludgeon them to death.  At the height of his murder spree, female college students disappeared at a rate of one per month.

He was first arrested in Utah, and imprisoned there for kidnapping and assault, before being transferred to custody in Colorado to face murder charges. 

He escaped custody twice, eventually fleeing to Florida where he murdered Levy and Bowman, the two Chi Omega sorority sisters on January 15, 1978, and Leach, one month later, before being brought back in.

‘Bundy is acting as his own lawyer,’ a reporter says, over video of Bundy carrying a box of papers and giving a thumbs up to cameras in the courtroom.

‘What is unusual to see is that many of the onlookers are women,’ the reporter says, panning across faces of ladies filling the benches of the gallery during Bundy’s trial. 

One of his attorneys, John Henry Browne from Seattle, who wrote a memoir in 2012 based on his interactions with Bundy, said, ‘[Bundy] told me he killed more than 100 people, and not only women.’
