Ted Bundy went to the execution chamber on January 24, 1989. Outside the prison where he was to be executed by electrocution, crowds had gathered, chanting, “Fry, Bundy, fry!” and cheering for his death. Local radio stations played the sound of bacon frying. There was a festive atmosphere outside as the crowds - and the nation - awaited his death.
The end for Bundy was anticlimatic. There was no sudden confession or show of remorse. He hugged his mother stiffly, nodded somberly to investigators he had come to know, and was then strapped into Florida’s infamous electric chair, Old Sparky.
It has been rumored that his executioner was female.
