This CLE presentation traces Bundy’s criminal activity from his jail break in Colorado to his arrest in Florida. It describes the investigation of his last murder, and gives a step-by-step account of how the prosecution assembled and presented the case. We critique the lawyers’ performances and make suggestions for how to better handle future high-profile murder cases.
