Bundy Groupies: Motivations Behind Writing to a Serial Killer

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Women meeting and falling in love with prisoners has received media attention, but very little empirical research has examined the phenomenon. While incarcerated, Ted Bundy received hundreds of letters, many of which were from women claiming a connection to the serial killer and expressing a desire to establish a relationship of sorts. Through a content analysis of these letters, the motivations and goals of the women will be explored. Comparisons between groupies in music and professional athletics and the letter writers will be made; all these women are in search of excitement and being close to someone famous. The role of the media as the catalyst to the groupie phenomenon in the criminal context will also be examined.
