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.

Richard Larsen [George Grizzard] states in the beginning of the movie that Ted Bundy's reign of terror began in Seattle in 1974 and ended in Miami in 1979. While Bundy was apprehended for the last time in Florida, the murders he committed were in Tallahassee and Jacksonville, which are in the northern Florida. Miami, on the other hand, is in southern Florida, and is almost 350 miles south of Jacksonville and almost 470 miles from Tallahassee. There is no evidence that Bundy ever traveled that far south.

The MO of the Ted at Lake Sammamish, same fractures to the victim's skulls, and the same mountain location where the bodies were dumped all add up to one human... monster.
