Based on a true story, this film depicts the life of Theodore Robert Bundy, the serial killer. In 1974, after having murdered several young women, he leaves Seattle for Utah, where he is a law student and where other girls disappear. It takes the cooperation of a number of police forces to work efficiently on this case. Soon, but not soon enough, the police eliminate endless possibilities and close in on him. Bundy is tried in the media and his good-boy attitude brings him sympathy but also the hatred of many. Written by

According to Ann Rule in an updated edition of her true crime novel about Ted Bundy, "The Stranger Beside Me", after "The Deliberate Stranger" first aired on TV, the real Bundy started to receive hundreds more love letters per day. Rule concluded that many of these women who sent Bundy love letters were actually writing them to Mark Harmon, or imagining that Bundy was more like Harmon than he actually was. See more
The victim in the beginning of the film is based on Georgeann Hawkins (name changed to Ann Pitney). She is seen wearing a hot pink navel baring top, with a white mini skirt, and stiletto platform shoes. In reality, according to Hawkins missing persons report, she was wearing a white backless shirt, a sheer red, white, and blue floral print long sleeved shirt, navy blue cotton bell bottom pants (which had one button and was missing three), and open-toed wedge sandals. While she was carrying a purse, it was not a fancy designer handbag. Hawkins was carrying a leather tan satchel like purse. See more

You keep at it. Maybe if you find enough straws you can put the broom together.
