A Vial Of Ted Bundy's Blood May Link Him To More Murders
A vial of serial killer Ted Bundy's blood preserved from a 1978 Columbia County murder may solve many cold cases across the nation. The blood sample was taken when Bundy was on trial for the murder of 12-year-old Kimberly Leach and will be uploaded into a national FBI database.
The vial of Bundy's blood was kept in cold storage in The Columbia County Court's evidence, which may open the door to justice for families across the nation.
Lake City Police Department's lead investigator on the Leach case, Larry Dougherty, says "we didn't have access or anything like that all we had is blood typing back then you know."
Dougherty says it was hair samples and debris found in Bundy's van that tied him to Leach's murder decades ago and the evidence kept in the worn boxes from that trial is the reason other opened murder cases could be solved. The full DNA profile will be uploaded to the FBI database this Friday.
