Ted Bundy’s childhood
August 10, 2012
Ted Bundy’s childhood was not the normal childhood that most children have. He was born in Vermont to his 23 year old mother Louise. Granted there are several people who do not have the best childhoods due to physical, sexual or mental abuse within the family but Ted’s childhood was not like what most children experience. Ted wasn’t abused but he was lied to about who his mother really was.
His mother gave birth to Ted when she was an unmarried teen and had given birth to Ted in an unwed home for mothers. When his mother returned to the family they decided to tell Ted that his actual grandmother was his mother and his actual mother was his 20 year older sister. Ted was also under the impression that his grandfather was his father. Ted sensed that something was wrong during this time.
When at the age of 3 Ted showed signs of not being of what is considered normal. Ted’s teenage Aunt remembered when Ted was 3 years old she woke up from taking a nap and little Ted had taken all the kitchen knives out and placed them all around her body. When she looked at Ted he just gave her a smirk. So starts at a very early age the strange things Ted would begin doing in his life.
Below is another picture of a young Ted during his childhood years.
