The front-woman of 70s rockers disclosed that she could have been the first of the mass killer’s 30 victims. In an interview she told how Bundy spotted her from his car in the early hours of the morning as she walked across town in New York, US. He persisted in offering her a lift and because there were no taxis available she finally got in the small car. Her instinct, however, saved her life because she noticed there were no door handles, and the car interior was stripped bare. She somehow managed to put her hand through the window and open the door from outside and jumped from the moving vehicle.
She only later learned that the “smelly” driver was Ted Bundy who became one of the world’s most notorious serial killers.
After his arrest Bundy told his lawyer that he made his first attempt to kidnap a woman in 1969 and implied that he committed his first actual murder in 1972.
Bundy’s earliest known murders were committed in 1974, when he was 27.
Bundy twice escaped from custody, on the second occasion he entered the Florida State University Chi Omega sorority house and killed two sleeping women.
He bludgeoned and strangled them both, sexually assaulting one of them. He battered several other women during the rampage.
Before he was recaptured he abducted, raped and murdered a 12-year-old girl. His final victim.
Harry said: “It was in the early 70s and I was trying to get across town at two or three o’clock in the morning.
“This little car kept coming around and offering me a ride. I kept saying no but finally I took the ride because I couldn’t get a cab.
“I got in the car and the windows were are rolled up, except for a tiny crack. This driver had an incredibly bad smell to him.
“I looked down and there were no door handles. The inside of the car was stripped. The hairs on the back of my neck just stood up.
“I wiggled my arm out of the window and pulled the door handle from the outside. I don’t know how I did it, but I got out.
“He tried to stop me by spinning the car but it sort of helped me fling myself out. Afterwards I saw him on the news. Ted Bundy.”
Bundy usually lured his victims by feigning injury with a cast on his arm or using crutches. He would them bludgeon them, rape them then strangle them.
He was executed by electric chair in 1989.
