If you want to know more about Carole Ann Boone, the wife of Ted Bundy, then you are at the right place. So, in this article, we shall take a look at some of the key points about her life that you should know.

Carole Ann Boone & Ted Bundy: An Overlooked Relationship

As we said earlier, the name Ted Bundy has always fascinated the minds of the people of America for decades now. Especially, the infamous killing spree of 1970 has become famous due to the Netflix docuseries, ‘Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes’. Apart from that, we also have the film starring Zac Efron in ‘Insatiable Killer’, portraying the life of Ted Bundy.

While it’s true that Ted Bundy’s life is quite mysterious, a lot of people don’t know about one thing, his wife, Carole Ann Boone. Sexual exploits, violence, and homicidal tendencies are always at the forefront due to its nature. However, beneath those, there was a man, who had a relationship with a woman. It’s really baffling how could someone, who had such a nature could bore a relationship with a woman.

How Did The Duo Meet Each Other?

So, that’s why, people want to know more about Carole Ann Boone, the wife of Ted Bundy. It shall only give us a new perspective on Ted’s life as well. So, let’s talk about how they met. As per the sources, Boone and Ted met each other in 1974. It was long before she became the wife of the man in question. So, as per the sources, it was a harmless office relationship. They worked in the department of Emergency Services in Olympia, Washington.

In ‘The Only Living Witness: The True Story of Serial Killer Ted Bundy’, G. Michaud and Hugh captured Boone as a woman of ‘lusty-tempered free spirit’. She was going through her second divorce and that was the moment when she met Ted. In fact, it’s worth noting that the duo both were in relationships back then. Despite that, Ted expressed a desire to date Carole. Well, she refused the proposal at first in favor of a platonic friendship, but she eventually accepted.

Carole did mention her liking for Ted as well, and how she became Ted Bundy girlfriend. She said, “I guess I was closer to him than other people at the agency…I liked Ted immediately. We hit it off well.” However, it was true that she didn’t know about Ted being someone who’s into kidnapping, rapping, and murdering innocent young women.

Well, to some, it may seem strange how such a mass murdering criminal like Ted Bundy could have a side that appealed to women in the first place. Actually, he had a sociopathic charm in mind. In other words, he kept the women in his life, especially those he didn’t kill, at a distance. He didn’t let his two personas collide with each other.

A Relationship That Grew Over Time Into Marriage

According to Carole Ann Boone, there was a mysterious quality about Ted Bundy. In her words, she saw Ted Bundy as a bit shy person with a lot going under the surface than what was on the surface. She further explained, “He certainly was more dignified and restrained than the more certifiable types around the office. He would participate in the silliness parkway…but remember, he was a republican”.

Well, the relationship between the duo grew over time strong enough. In fact, they even exchanged letters. Moreover, we should also mention that Carole Ann Boone even visited the State for about seven days to meet him.

She wasn’t Ted Bundy wife yet back then. However, something propelled them to get closer and closer with time. Of course, there was some part in Carole that resisted the charm of Ted. However, it was quite strong enough to brush off as well. There was a time when she even showed unwavering loyalty to Ted. Carole did confess that she thought Ted didn’t belong in Jail. Despite the fact that Ted committed two gruesome murders in Florida, Carole didn’t term those killings as a ‘concerning’ factor at all. She said, “The things in Florida don’t concern me any more than the things out west do.”

During Ted’s trial, their relationship became more serious and romantic. Michaud in Only Living Witness even wrote that ‘They (Ted and Carole) were crazy together. Carole loved him…she told him that she wanted a child and somehow they had sex in prison.”

Moreover, during the trial, Bundy asked Carole on the stand to marry him. A lot of people may say that it’s outrageous, but that’s how it was for them at least. The judge had, at this point, already sentenced Bundy to death for his crimes.

Is Ted Bundy Alive?

A lot of people may ask, is Ted Bundy still alive? Well, at least in the minds of people. Through the Netflix docuseries and the series of murders that he committed, he is very much alive as a man of terror. However, the jury had already sentenced him to death. So, on 24th January 1989, he died by electric chair.

Carole Ann Boone & Ted Bundy’s Daughter, Rose Bundy

There are sources that claim that Carole smuggled drugs for him in prison. Moreover, they also continued their physical intimacy. Two years after, Rose Bundy was born. So, as we know, Rose is the only biological child of Ted Bundy.

It’s also worth noting that three years before Ted’s execution, Carole divorced him and didn’t see him ever again. There’s not enough info available about Carole’s life after that. Today, people know her simply as Ted Bundy wife. She moved out of Florida with her children, Jayme and Rose, and is living a low-key life.
