Carole Ann Boone Biography
(Ted Bundy’s Wife)
Carole or Carol Ann Boone is an American woman who was once married to kidnapper, rapist, serial killer and necrophile Ted Bundy. They married in 1980, the day before he was sentenced to death for the third time, and would remain married until 1986. Little is known about Boone prior to her relationship with Bundy. She was previously married and had a teenage son when she first met Bundy. At the time, they both worked at the Washington State Department of Emergency Services. She instantly took a liking to the young, charismatic, and restrained individual who seemed to be interested in her. Bundy was first apprehended in Utah. Confronted by a progressively longer list of homicides in multiple states, Bundy orchestrated two daring escapes from prison with alleged help from Boone. He subsequently murdered three people before his recapture in 1978 in Florida. Boone moved to Florida to be close to him during the trial and would serve as his character witness. In 1982, she gave birth to a daughter, who was reportedly fathered by Bundy. Boone stopped visiting Bundy in 1986, about three years prior to his execution, as the prison atmosphere supposedly distressed her daughter. Since then, they both presumably have been living under new identities.
