Ted Bundy's Haunted Childhood Home
Theodore Robert Bundy, better known as Ted Bundy, was an American serial killer who kidnapped, raped, burglarized, and enjoyed sex with the corpses of his victims during the 1970s. Shortly before his execution, he confessed to 36 homicides committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978, but the true total could be higher.

When a contractor was hired to remodel the four-bedroom home where Bundy grew up in Oct. 2016, it wasn't long before he started noticing eerie things going on.
Quote:A contractor hired to remodel the childhood home of serial killer Ted Bundy claims to have encountered ghosts inside the Washington state residence — which had the skeptic scrawling Bible verses on walls and calling in pastors.

“Periodically, throughout the course of the job, we had weird things keep happening,” Clopton said, claiming that cellphones and other electronic devices would occasionally get unplugged or immediately die without explanation.

On at least two occasions, the words “Leave” and “Help me” were found written inside the house — in sheetrock dust on a bedroom floor and on a basement window, respectively.
Dressers were known to inexplicably fall over, and drawers sometimes opened on there own, despite the doors to the house being locked and nobody being inside.

“It was really eerie, but really neat,” real-estate broker James Pitts III remembered.

Things apparently got so bad that Clopton penciled Bible verses on the walls, and called in two pastors to bless the house. The pair reportedly went from room to room, reading scriptures and saying blessings.

“Everything in that house fought us, and I was kind of weird about it,” Clopton said. “But I go to church and I have God with me.”

The frightened contractor told the Tribune that he knew something was up with the house when he took his 11-year-old daughter there to check it out — like she does with all the homes he works on — and she freaked.

“My daughter started crying,” Clopton recalled. “She said she felt weird. She didn’t like it there.”

When he returned the next week with a demolition crew, Clopton said a worker made similar statements about the home and claimed it just didn’t feel right.

At that time, Clopton, nor anyone on his crew realized this was the childhood home of Ted Bundy. He had moved into the house at the age of 9 with his mother, stepfather and four siblings in 1955.

Quote:It wasn’t until Clopton started chatting up neighbors about the strange occurrences that he and Pitts found out about the home’s infamous resident and called in for backup.

“We made sure to keep quiet initially because we weren’t sure how people would react to knowing a serial killer lived there,” Pitts said.
While there is no evidence that Bundy actually committed any crimes in the house, he stated in interviews before his execution that his murderous streak stemmed from an obsession with pornography as a teen.

According to the Tribune, some believe that Bundy took his first human life when he was 14, though he later denied the allegations in a letter to the girl’s mother.

Clopton wound up completely re-doing his childhood house, giving it a fresh coat of paint, a bright yellow front door and new floors and ceilings.

The home sold for $335,000. It’s unclear if the buyers were aware of its history. There is a law now that any place reported to have "ghostly activity" must be declared by the realtor, but I don't know if this is true in all states.

I wonder if the unsuspecting buyers experienced any ghostly activity after the renovations?  It's said that ghosts don't like people coming in and making changes to THEIR house.  I would be very upset if I bought a haunted house, and no one told me, wouldn't you?!
