THE execution of smooth-talking serial killer Ted Bundy was celebrated by hundreds of people who chanted “burn, Bundy, burn” outside his death chamber.
The cold-blooded murderer, who confessed to killing 30 women the night before he died, was electrocuted in Florida on January 24, 1989, aged 42.

His infamous case is being examined in a new Netflix docuseries, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, which is released on the 30th anniversary of his death.
That day, hundreds of people gathered outside Florida State Prison to cheer on the execution – creating a “circus atmosphere” outside, according to journalist Jon Word.
His death even inspired Souvenir T-shirts which were sold among the crowd, some of who chanted “Burn, Bundy, burn” and set off fireworks when his death was confirmed.
The sex-crazed psychopath – who would often abuse the dead bodies of his victims – spent the night crying and praying before his state-sanctioned killing.
He also spent time with FBI agent Bill Hagmaier mapping out his murders state-by-state.
While he confessed to 30 killings across seven US states in the 1970s, many people who have studied his case believe the number is much larger.
Previously, when the federal agents presented a total of 36 victims to him, he reportedly responded: “Add one digit to that, and you’ll have it.”
At 4.50am on the day of his execution, he refused a last breakfast of steak and eggs in his cell which was 30ft away from the electric chair.
Around an hour later, his head was shaved along with his right calf – which were the attachments points for the electrodes.
Despite his enormous amount of victims, Bundy was sentenced to death for three killings in Florida following his second escape from prison.
He sexually assaulted and murdered two college students during a blood-thirsty rampage on January 15, 1978, in which he also bludgeoned three others who all survived.

His last crime was the kidnapping and murder of 12-year-old Kimberly Diane Leach who he abducted from her school in broad daylight on February 9.
The handsome failed law student, who was once a rising star within the Republican party, broke out of jail twice and even defended himself in court.
His story still fascinates crime enthusiasts today.
The first trailer for the Netflix docuseries has been released.
It is based on a book by Stephen G. Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth who interviewed Bundy during his ten years on death row.
Over 100 hour of exclusive audio has been used for the series which promises to offer fresh insight into the twisted mind of the killer.
In the trailer, Bundy says: “I mean, I’m not an animal and I’m not crazy and I don’t have a split personality.
“I’m just a normal individual.”
