Netflix’s new documentary series, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes revisits the infamous serial killers murders and personal relationships.  

One of the mystery’s surrounding Bundy, who confessed to murdering 30 young women in a four-year period, is his relationship with ex-wife Carole Anne Boone and his daughter Rose Bundy.

Carol Anne Boone is featured in the documentary but has not spoken publicly about their relationship in many years.  

Boone was a DES employee and met Ted at work, they became friends and she was convinced that he was innocent. As the documentary shows, Carole Anne wanted to be identified as his friend rather than a romantic partner.  

She testified on his behalf and appeared on the televised trial as a character witness. Bundy called her to the stand and asked her to marry him, which she accepted. 

The jury sentenced Bundy to death in the trial after he proposed to Boone. About a year and a half after the trial, she gave birth to Rose Bundy in October 1982 and named Ted as the father.  

Although conjugal visits were not allowed, the documentary Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes plays audio of Boone claiming that the guards did not care about them being intimate and claims that guards sometimes walked in on them having sex. 

Ted appeared to have a family life with Carole, his two stepchildren, and Rose while on death row. 

Where is Rose Bundy now?

Carole Anne Boone divorced Bundy in 1986 and has kept away from the media ever since.

Ted’s daughter Rose Bundy would have been about 7 years old when her father was executed and about 36 years old today. Rose has actively avoided the spotlight and probably does not use her father’s surname.  

Ted Bundy confessed to murdering at least 30 women including 12-year-old Kimberly Diane Leach.
