"Dozens of women, maybe as many as 100, have vanished without a trace, seemingly right in front of people’s eyes, from seven states Washington, Utah, Colorado, Oregon, Idaho, California and Florida. The abductor, a handsome white male, is a phantom—or a chameleon whose appearance shifts every time witnesses look at him. “He was not unusual for a very clever psychopath individual. He was able to inspire confidence in others and provide a very good front. Nobody who interacted with him actually suspected what was going on.”
The young, beautiful women who started to disappear all fit a certain profile. Each one was Caucasian and fair complexioned, with long hair parted down the middle. Each one was was highly intelligent, slender, talented, and very attractive. Each was single and from a stable family. Each was wearing slacks or jeans when she disappeared. The victims are found, if they’re found, nude, bludgeoned, and strangled, or as part of a collection of body parts. The phantom killed again and again, his last victims were two sorority women and a 12-year-old girl in Florida, the phantom abductor was Ted Bundy and his reign of terror took place during several years in the 1970's, Bundy kept a collection of photos of his victims.

On January 15, 1978, Bundy committed his first murders in almost two and a half years. He broke into the Chi Omega sorority at the Florida State University Tallahassee, raped, strangled, and bludgeoned students Lisa Levy and Margaret Bowman. Two other students were also attacked but survived. The same night, he attacked another woman eight blocks away. She also survived. On February 9, 1978, Bundy committed his last known murder. Ted Bundy abducted 12-year old Kimberly Leach outside her school, raped and killed her and tried to hide the body in an abandoned hog shed. On the morning of February 15, he was arrested for driving a stolen vehicle and was quickly linked to the sorority murders.
Ted Bundy was an unusually organized and calculating criminal who used his extensive knowledge of law enforcement methodologies to elude identification and capture for years. His crime scenes were distributed over large geographic areas; his victim count had risen to at least 20 before it became clear that numerous investigators in widely disparate jurisdictions were hunting the same man. His assault methods of choice were blunt trauma and strangulation, two relatively silent techniques that could be accomplished with common household items.
Ted Bundy deliberately avoided firearms due to the noise they made and the ballistic evidence they left behind. He was a "meticulous researcher" who explored his surroundings in minute detail, looking for safe sites to seize and dispose of victims. All of Bundy's known victims were white females, most of middle-class backgrounds. Almost all were between the ages of 13 and 25 and most were college students, youth and beauty were "absolutely indispensable criteria" in his choice of victims.
The victims of serial killer Ted Bundy would be overpowered, bludgeoned, and restrained with handcuffs. Most were sexually assaulted and strangled, either at the primary crime scene or (more commonly) after transport to a pre-selected secondary site, often a considerable distance away.At secondary sites he would remove and later burn the victim's clothing, or in at least one case (Julie Cunningham's) deposit them in a Goodwill Industries collection bin, Bundy explained that the clothing removal was ritualistic, but also a practical matter, as it minimized the chance of leaving trace evidence (DNA touch evidence today) at the crime scene that could implicate him. Ted Bundy confessed to killing 36 women in seven states, Washington, Utah, Colorado, Oregon, Idaho, California and Florida before he was executed by electric chair on January 24, 1989.
The victims of serial killer Delmer Smith would be overpowered, bludgeoned, and restrained with electrical cords with his signature "two half inch knot" most were sexually assaulted. Serial Rapist and Killer Delmer Smith used the same exact tactics as Ted Bundy in his reign of terror in the South West Florida towns of Sarasota, Bradenton and Terra Ceia Fl except he targeted white middle aged and senior aged females some as old as 70. FBI agents and Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials were helping local Sarasota detectives track the man (Delmer Smith), who is suspected in as many as nine attacks during the last two months. On March 14, 2009 a 62-year-old woman was watching TV on Carmilfra Way, near Phillippi Creek, when a robber sneaked in tied her up and hit her on the head.
On April 20th, 2009, Delmer Smith attacked a 61 year old woman on 32 Street N.W. Bradenton Fl at about noon time, he found the woman outside near her home and Delmer Smith pushed her inside the house with his gun to her head, it appears that her husband was coming home for lunch in a matter of minutes and Delmer Smith found out and decided to wait for the husband and attack him also, (this is the only male victim of Delmer Smith). Delmer Smith tied up the victims using electrical cords with his signature "two half inch knot", once tied up and unable to defend themselves Delemr Smith beat his victims with the butt of his .380 Walther semi-automatic hand gun around the face. Delmer Smith savagely beat the two 60 year old victims, knocking out teeth down to the roots from the male victim and breaking bones in both of the victims faces. All of Delmer Smith's known 12 victims were beaten unconscious, as far as he knew and was concerned they were all dead when he left.
Serial Killer Delmer Smith was convicted with the violent murder of Kathleen Briles in Terra Ceia, Manatee County Florida, he tied her up with his signature "two half inch knot" and then beat her to death with an antique cast iron sewing machine. It was a killing that culminated a dozen home invasions divided between Sarasota and Manatee counties, a series of crimes that kept both communities on edge over a seven-month period in 2009. Serial Killer Delmer Smith raped and beat to death Georgann Lee Smith on Joann Drive in Sarasota, she was beaten to death with a baseball bat, she had been bound and raped, she had been home alone, she died alone. Delemr Smith has not been charged, so far, in her murder. See the whole story CLICK HERE.
PROFILE OF SERIAL KILLER TED BUNDY: youth and beauty were "absolutely indispensable criteria" in his choice of victims" who were white females with long hair between the ages of 13 and 25. Fast forward to the years 2005 through 2012 and a very similar pattern is unfolding across seven states, North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Ohio, Kentucky South Carolina and Indiana with very pretty look-a-like white petite blonde females with long hair between the ages of 17 and 24, for the most part, vanishing without a trace was/is there a Ted Bundy clone out there now?

In the case of murdered Karen Swift, the Dyer County Sheriff revealed updated info last month, September 2nd, 2012 as to..."The Karen Swift murder investigation is still very active with many agencies involved in the preparation of the evidence for a murder trial. There have been several persons of interest throughout the course of the investigation, we have ruled all of them out, except for one person in particular. Currently, we do not feel it would not be beneficial to the case to reveal the identity of this person of interest. "If this individual was on the run or if we felt that other persons were in immediate danger, we would have already named this person as a suspect". In cop talk that means the person of interest is currently in jail and the FBI among others are involved, so who is he?
Kelli Bordeaux was one of the last of the petite blonde females to go missing on April 14th, 2012, she is just one of about a dozen petite blond females who have vanished without a trace over the last several years. What Really Happened to Petite Females Karen Swift, Katelyn Markham, Kelli Bordeaux, Lauren Spierer, Holly Bobo, Paige Johnson, Crystal Hall and Misty Gwinner? I think it is about time that the FBI took over all of these missing and murdered petite blonde female cases seen above, if they have not already done so, and look real hard at sex offenders who work as Interstate truck drivers.
Federal Bureau of Investigation Serial Murder: Behavioral Analysis Unit-2. National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime, Critical Incident Response Group. The FBI Report breakdown by state, click link to see interactive FBI Map CLICK HERE. Often the victims are abducted in one state and dumped in another. And the killers? Authorities say they have 200 suspects; almost all are long-haul truck drivers. To date, the FBI says it has helped local authorities arrest at least 10 suspects believed to be involved in more than 30 of the killings. That still appears to leave hundreds of killings unsolved, and the cases continue to mount.
