Right? I can’t believe that in all I’ve read and watched about Bundy, I didn’t see what a dumbass he was. He was able to do what he did, not because of some finely tuned skillset or genius IQ, but because he was a psychopathic predator. That fact allowed him to act in ways pretty much EVERYBODY ELSE couldn’t fathom, and for the length of his “sprees" for lack of a better word, that allowed him to have the upper hand.
The weird thing is I have thought this about lots of other serial killers (the moron thing) but always just assumed Bundy was super smart. I wonder if it was because he looked kind of normal? I mean, no one ever accused Gacy of looking normal. Or Ridgeway, Berkowitz, Rader. Freaks, the lot of ‘em.
