IT’s a strange thing to remember that serial killers had full lives before, and often after, they began committing murders. They passed through the lives of as many people as you or I do. They speak to shop owners, bartenders, baristas, and cab drivers, who probably would never remember the interaction they had.
But there are those who had more time with these people. When the headlines broke, they knew exactly who the sinister face on the television belonged to. One such person, a former friend of serial killer Ted Bundy, has been speaking out for the first time.
Marylynne Chino, a woman who lived in Seattle at the same time as Bundy, has given an interview to KUTV in Salt Lake City, recalling the time she spent with him as he was dating her best friend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, the woman who would ultimately help to get Bundy arrested. At the time, Elizabeth was working as a secretary at the University of Washington School of Medicine.
It was the fall of 1969 when Marylynne and Elizabeth walked into the Sandpiper Lounge, a local bar, and laid eyes on Bundy. “I’ve never forgotten this. I walked in, and across the room, I saw Ted for the first time. I will never forget the look on his face, it wasn’t evil but he was staring nursing a beer.”
