Who is Rose Bundy?

Rose Bundy was born in Florida, USA, on 1 October 1982 – her zodiac sign is Libra, and she holds American nationality. She’s a cook, but perhaps mostly known unfortunately for being the daughter of Ted Bundy, the late American rapist, kidnapper and serial killer.

Early life and education

Rose was raised in Florida alongside her brother James Bundy, by their mother Carole Ann Boone, who had divorced twice before meeting Ted, and has two children from those marriages. Carole met Ted while he was in jail, and she apparently helped him escape twice; they also married while he was in jail, but divorced before he was executed on 24 January 1989.

Rose’s brother James is a successful engineer.

She attended a local high school in Florida, but growing up wasn’t easy for Rose, mostly because of her father; she was bullied at school, because of all the lives her father had taken. Rose found comfort in music and watching TV, and upon matriculating in 2000, and having been encouraged by her family, she enrolled at college, graduatingd with a Bachelor of Arts degree in culinary arts in 2004.

Rose’s career

Not a lot is known about Rose’s career. It’s said that she has been working as a cook for over 10 years now, while she’s also appeared in several TV shows, mostly to speak about her father’s life.

In 2019, Rose made a guest appearance in the episode “True Crime: Who Is Ted Bundy’s Daughter?” of the talk-show “The Dr. Oz Show”, and in 2020, she was featured in the episode “The Life & Crimes of Ted Bundy” of the documentary mystery crime series “Seeking Answers”.

She’s perhaps known best for the 2019 biographical crime movie “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile”, based on the book “The Phantom Prince: My Life with Ted Bundy” by Elizabeth Kendall, directed by Joe Berlinger, and which starred Lily Collins, Zac Efron and Angela Sarafyan; Rose didn’t appear in the film, but is often spoken about in it. The film follows Liz, Ted’s former girlfriend, who believed that Ted was an innocent man; it won five of the 10 awards for which it was nominated.

Love life and relationships

Rose’s highly secretive when it comes to her love life, and hasn’t spoken of any men (or women) whom she’s dated. This is why there are various rumors circulating the internet, concerning both her past and present relationships, and her sexual orientation.

She’s widely believed to be a lesbian, and some people on the internet have claimed to have seen Rose being rather too close to her female friend at a park, however, no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Rose taken the time to address these.

There are also some who believe that she’s today a married woman, but for obvious reasons is keeping her husband away from the media’s attention; this hasn’t been confirmed either.

As of August 2021, Rose seems to be single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have children.

Hobbies and other interests

It seems that Rose has become a fashionista, as many people have claimed to have seen her shopping for clothes on numerous occasions; this also makes her a shopaholic.

She’s keen on travelling, and has been to various US states for both work and pleasure. Rose has also travelled around the US to speak about her father, and offer comfort to those whom he had harmed.

She’s an animal lover, and has both pet dogs and cats.

Rose is into watching movies at night, and her favorite actor’s believed to be Leonardo DiCaprio, while a couple of her favorite movies are “Titanic”, “Inception” and “Catch Me If You Can”.

Age, height and net worth

Rose’s age is 38. She has long brown hair and brown eyes, her height is 5ft 5ins (1.65m) and she weighs around 128lbs (58kgs). As of August 2021, her net worth has been estimated at over $50,000.

Who was Ted Bundy?

Theodore Robert ‘Ted’ Cowell was born in Burlington, Vermont USA on 24 November 1946 – his zodiac sign was Scorpio, and he held American nationality. He admitted to having murdered 30 people in seven states, but the exact number of his victims isn’t known; Ted was electrocuted at Florida State Prison in Raiford, Florida.

He was raised in Philadelphia by his maternal grandparents, Eleanor and Samuel Cowell. Ted’s mother was Eleanor Louise Cowell, while his father’s identity isn’t known; it’s believed that his father could’ve been the Air Force veteran Lloyd Marshall, or the war veteran Jack Worthington, while some believe that his father is Eleanor’s father, as he was abusive and violent towards her.

He was four years old when he moved to Tacoma, Washington with his mother, where she then married the hospital cook Johnny Culpepper Bundy; the two had four children together, and Ted became distant as the time went by. He was arrested twice while still a teenager, for auto theft and burglary.

Ted studied at the University of Puget Sound, and after a year moved to the University of Washington. He quit in 1968, and found a job to financially support himself, however, he re-enrolled at the university in 1970, and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology in 1972. He then enrolled at the University of Utah, wanting to graduate with a law degree.

It’s not clear when Ted murdered his first victim; he said himself that it was in 1971, but on another occasion, he said that he murdered two women in 1969.

After a series of unsolved murders, Ted was arrested on 16 August 1975, after having been caught by Utah Highway Patrol Officer Bob Hayward.

Ted was speeding, and after stopping him, the officer found a ski mask in his car, alongside a crowbar, handcuffs and other things which Ted used when killing his victims. As they didn’t have enough evidence to hold him in jail, Ted was released, however, as the required evidence was soon gathered, he stood trial in February 1976, and was found guilty of kidnapping and assaulting Carol DaRonch, an 18 years old telephone operator. In July 1976, he was also found guilty of killing Caryn Campbell.

Ted escaped for the first time on 7 July 1977, after having been taken to a library, as he was his own lawyer. He jumped out of the window, and escaped to Aspen Mountain, Colorado, but was caught driving a stolen car six days later. Ted escaped again on 23 December 1977, but was recaptured on 12 February 1978.

To this day, it hasn’t been revealed if Ted was suffering from any disorder. There were many psychiatrists who spoke with him, but most of them had differing views on his behavior, as some believed that he was suffering from bipolar disorder, while others claimed that he had a multiple personality disorder.
