"I'm the most cold-blooded sonofabitch you'll ever meet." - Ted Bundy Men envied his grace and charm. Women admired his stunning good looks and polite manner. In the 42 years of his life, Ted Bundy acquired many names and faces. To his political friends he was a brilliant young man on his way up to the top in the legal system, maybe even a possible senator one day. To his mother, he was the ideal son, doing very well academically. His outside image however was nothing but a lie, the largest of which being a lover of women.In the times of his birth it was an embarrassment to have a child out of wedlock. For this reason Eleanor Louise Cowell (a native of Philadelphia) was sent to a home for unwed mothers in Vermont. It was there that she gave birth to her child on November 24, 1946. Ted's father, Lloyd Marshall, was an Air Force veteran and said to be away at the time of his birth. He remained rather unknown to Ted throughout his entire life. Right after his birth, Eleanor moved back to Philadelphia with her parents and for the next two months the family debated over whether to put Ted up for adoption or not. Eventually they came to the conclusion that they would just tell people that her parents adopted him and claim that he was not her child. In doing so they were hoping to save Ted and her any harsh criticism and judgment.For these reasons, Ted grew up believing that his grandparents were his parents and his legitimate mother was just an older sister. At one point in his childhood, however, when arguing with a relative they let out that he was a bastard. To make matters worse they even showed him his birth certificate to prove that it was not a lie. Ted, however, responded as though it did not bother him in the least. It was from this point though that it is believed Ted knew of who his parents really were.Ted's home life is rather debatable. If Ted was asked he would do nothing, but brag about his grandfather and speak highly of him. He could sit and just recall nostalgic memories from his boyhood of camping and fishing trips. Louise also agreed with these accounts of her father being an amiable man. The controversy appears when other relatives' opinions were asked. They say him as an ill-tempered man. They stated that he was verbally abusive and at times even physically abusive to his wife. His grandmother was not exactly a stable person either. She had to fight her fits of depression and eventually became so bad she would not leave her own house.In an attempt to save Ted anymore embarrassment during his childhood, Louise and him moved to Tacoma Washington and changed their last names. Louise lived with relatives, but pretended as though she was widow. It was here that she met and married Johnnie Culpepper Bundy, whose last name Ted would carry around for the rest of his life. The couple ended up having four other children, who Ted often babysat after school. In junior high Ted was bullied and teased very often. Through all of this however he...
