As far as serial killers go, there is probably no one more nutritious than Ted Bundy in the modern era. Over a four year period during the 70s, Ted Bundy killed at least 30 young women in America. For a lot of Americans, he was the face of terror and the absolute personification of evil. However, he also attracted a lot of women towards himself and even managed to father a child while he was on death row.
