Relationship Status

Rose Bundy’s relationship status and love affairs are not mentioned on the web. Talking about her parents’ relationship status, Ted and Carole were Washington State DES coworkers in Olympia, Washington, in the year 1974.

Her mother had moved to Florida to be near Ted Bundy during his trials.

Her mother was going through her second divorce when Ted and Carole met each other. Carole was immensely attracted to Ted and this fact is mentioned in Hugh Aynesworth and Stephen G. Michaud’s book The Only Living Witness.

However, as her parents had a platonic friendship back then, Carole denied Ted when he asked her out. Back then, Carole had no idea about Ted’s heinous acts.

Her parents stayed connected through letters when Ted was imprisoned in Utah in the year 1977. This was the time when their relationship developed into a romantic one. According to Rolling Stone, Carole even assisted Ted to escape from the Colorado prison in December 1977.

Career and Professional Life

Rose Bundy is famous as the celebrity kid of Ted Bundy. Ted is an American serial killer. He kidnapped, raped, and murdered numerous young women and girls during the 1970s. But authorities believe that he did this possibly earlier.

After more than a decade of denials, her father confessed to 30 homicides that he committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978. It was before Ted’s execution in the year 1989.

Despite his confession of 30 homicides, people believe that the true number of victims might be even higher.

More Details on Rose’s Parent’s Relationship

However, Rose’s father was arrested again in 1978. During his 1980 trial in Florida, her parents got married in the courtroom, in front of a judge. Ted had already been sentenced to death by then but her mother always believed him to be innocent.

As shown in the Netflix series Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, her mother had conceived her while Ted was on death row.

Ted had impregnated Carole when she came to visit him in the prison. The documentary showed her father revealing that they had bribed guards to let Carole inside the cell to have sex on a few occasions.

Her mother added that the guards did walk in on them sometimes but never stopped them. Apart from managing the conjugal visits, her mother allegedly smuggled drugs and money to the jail for him.

Furthermore, her mother traveled about 40 miles to be Ted’s character witness during his 1980 Orlando trial. At the time, Carole was pregnant with her.

The interesting fact is that her parents’ 1st wedding anniversary marked the second anniversary of Ted’s brutal kidnapping and murder of 12-year-old Kimberly Leach.

More Details

A couple of years after the authorities sentenced Ted to death, Carole gave birth to Rose Bundy. Her father was also a father figure to his former girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer’s daughter, Tina.

Elizabeth and Ted dated for 7 years. Her father even had a cordial relationship with Jayme. Jayme is her brother from her mother’s previous relationship. There is also information that her mother always took her and Jayme along with her on her visits to prison.

They even had a few family pictures taken in jail with Ted. Despite Carole’s loyalty to Ted and her continuous denial of his crimes, her parents’ perilous, unconventional, and deceptive marriage came to an end 3 years before his execution in 1989.

Her mother divorced Ted and moved to Washington. She also took her children – she and Jayme – with her.

Carole reportedly never saw or spoke to Ted again and also refused to accept Ted’s phone call on the morning of his execution. She lived a low-profile life with her brother and mother. Hence, her current whereabouts are still a mystery.

Some believe that she maintains a low profile purposefully because of her father’s criminal history. Some theories suggest that Carole has remarried, changed her name, and is living in Oklahoma as Abigail Griffin. However, there is no confirmed/verified information.

In the 2008 reprint of The Stranger Beside Me, author Ann Rule described her character as kind and intelligent. The author and Ted Bundy were coworkers.

The author also displayed sympathy for the family. She mentioned that the family had been through enough pain. The writer also mentioned that she had avoided digging into the lives of Carole and her to avoid breaching their privacy.
