Thank you for this. For a lot of the reasons you mention I actually find GRK more “interesting” than Bundy–or rather, it makes me want to know more about his victims and the larger context he operated in, Women Mom of 2 Boys Shirt Gift from Son Mothers Day Birthday Shirt not really about the killer himself. I have such heartache for the missing, unidentified, and the ones who are just all-out ignored or brushed off. Like poor Wendy… she was only a kid, she didn’t deserve any of that. I hope that learning more about Ridgeway’s patterns and movements will help give some women their names back.

One thing I remember reading is that Ridgeway would purposefully make himself look/act dumber than he actually was. Squinting his eyes, talking slow, trying to appear as harmless as possible. I don’t think he was a super genius or anything, but he definitely knew how to play the system (keeping dates alive and being kind to them, forensic counterme asures) to minimized his risks. This is just a slight tangent but…Women Mom of 2 Boys Shirt Gift from Son Mothers Day Birthday Shirt I don’t really get the Bundy hype. He was just an angry, narcissistic misogynist who was successful with some ruses and was able to appear normal in his everyday life.

The Bundy cult of personality is just proof of what a master manipulator he was. His hatred of women is chilling and he deployed every psychological tactic he could to victimize them. I was in Florida with my father visiting Disney and sea world just before Bundy was executed. I remember a restaurant having “free fries when Bundy fries!” on their marquee. Women Mom of 2 Boys Shirt Gift from Son Mothers Day Birthday Shirt At the time I didn’t know what it meant, and when I asked my dad, he said “he’s a sick fuck that likes killing little girls and now he’s gonna ride the lightning”. Years later I saw an interview with a guard that was there when he died.
