Carole Ann Boone: Where is Ted Bundy’s wife now?

One of the most infamous serial killers in history was Ted Bundy. As a rapist and necrophile, Bundy is known to have kidnapped and killed at least 36 young women throughout the 1970s, while his actual victim count may have been higher. For his cruel crimes, Bundy received an electric chair execution sentence in 1989.

The fact that Ted Bundy was reputed to be extremely attractive and personable made it all too simple for him to entice his victims and win their trust. This is one of the scariest features of Ted Bundy. One particular woman, Carole Ann Boone, supported his innocence all the way to the bitter end, marrying him and giving birth to his daughter, Rosa Bundy.

It is perplexing how Bundy and Boone seem to interact in such an odd way. How could she have faith in someone who had been jailed for such heinous crimes? Who would attach themselves to a person waiting to be executed? Continue reading to learn more about her life and current location.

Who is Carole Ann Boone?

Being the wife of serial killer Ted Bundy, who kidnapped, raped, and killed numerous women and children in the 20th century, made Carole Ann Boone a well-known American citizen. After twenty years, Ted Bundy has admitted to more than thirty killings.

We will learn about Carole Ann Boone’s encounter with him and her current whereabouts in this piece. Find out what challenges she experienced when she was married to Ted Bundy.

How did Carole Ann Boone meet Ted Bundy?

American woman Carole or Carol Ann Boone was formerly wed to a serial killer, necrophile, kidnapper, and rapist Ted Bundy. They got hitched in 1980, the day before he received his third death sentence, and they stayed together until 1986. Boone’s life before her relationship with Bundy is not well known. When she first met Bundy, she had a teenage son from a previous marriage. They both had jobs with the Washington State Department of Emergency Services at the time. The young, charismatic, and reserved man who seemed interested in her immediately won her over. Bundy was initially detained in Utah.

As the list of homicides in several states became longer, Bundy allegedly worked with Boone to plan and execute two daring prison breaks. After that, he killed three others until being apprehended again in 1978 in Florida. Boone relocated to Florida so that he could be nearby for the trial and would testify about his character. She gave birth to a daughter in 1982, who Bundy is said to have fathered. About three years before his execution, in 1986, Boone stopped going to visit Bundy because she thought the prison environment was upsetting her daughter. They’ve both probably been going by different names ever since.

How did Carole Ann Boone become Ted Bundy’s wife?

Boone was by his side the entire time he was in court, relentlessly advocating for him, and she had no doubts that Bundy was innocent. Boone even acted as Bundy’s character witness and assisted Bundy in his scheme to break out of jail and travel to Florida (where he murdered three more young women.)

Bundy proposed to Boone in front of the jury and the two pronounced themselves wed in front of the judge in order to appeal to the jury’s softer side. Boone relocated close to the prison after Bundy was handed the death punishment so that she could visit him frequently.

Boone would even sometimes slip narcotics into Bundy through her genital area. During these encounters, the two of them somehow managed to have sex, which resulted in the conception of their 1982-born daughter Rose Bundy.

April 24, 1982, marked Rosa Bundy’s birth. According to E! News, Boone became pregnant while visiting Bundy while he was awaiting execution. People are still unsure of how that occurred.

Bundy officially wasn’t allowed conjugal visits, so when Boone got pregnant, questions about how that happened (and whether or not her child was even actually Bundy’s) started to surface. Boone stated that the details of her pregnancy with Bundy were “nobody’s business” in an article published in The Deseret News in 1981.

The Sun suggested that Boone might have “delivered an empty condom to Bundy via a kiss, which he then filled and returned it in the same manner” in order to have Rosa. (Blech.)

Bundy and Boone wouldn’t have needed to resort to such extreme tactics, according to Ann Rule. Instead, it was typical for inmates to pay off the guards with bribes so that couples may engage in sexual activity in different parts of the facility, which is probably what Bundy and Boone did.

In fact, Boone claims that after the first day, “they just, they didn’t care,” and that they even “walked in on us a couple of times” in Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes on Netflix. So that settles it.

Rosa was undoubtedly born to Boone while Bundy was still imprisoned. It’s widely known that Boone thought Bundy was innocent. According to Rolling Stone, she may have even assisted him in escaping from his Colorado prison and relocating to Florida in 1977. Oh, and by the way, Boone had a teenage son named James from a prior marriage in addition to Rosa.

Rosa was Bundy’s first biological kid, but she wasn’t the first child he had ever raised. Previously married daughter Molly of Bundy’s ex-girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer (also known as Liz Kendall) was raised by Bundy.

Rosa Bundy: What is known about her?

Not a lot. She has led a quiet life (which is fair, I suppose), and little is known about her. For instance, Oxygen claims that Rule described Rosa as “nice and clever.”

In reality, Rule’s full remark, which is available on her website, clarifies how she could be so knowledgeable about Bundy yet so ignorant about his family: “I’ve purposely kept quiet about Ted’s ex-wife and daughter’s whereabouts because I think they should have some privacy. I don’t want to know where they are, and I never want to be asked about them by a reporter. I just know that Ted’s kid has developed into a lovely young lady.”

Now, where is Rosa Bundy?

After Boone and Bundy’s divorce in 1986, she and Rosa moved to Washington. Boone reportedly rejected Bundy’s final phone call because she was so heartbroken by his death row admissions of his crimes. On January 24, 1989, Bundy was executed, three years after they had divorced. Rose, who is now 37, has reportedly avoided the spotlight.

Where is Carole Ann Boone Now?

On January 24, 1989, Bundy was put to death in the electric chair at Raiford. Boone grew apart from Ted Bundy three years before his execution. She reportedly did not see him again after that.

Almost nothing is known about what exactly happened to Carole Ann Boone following that. The two children she had at the time, Jayme and Rose, are thought to have moved to a different city at that time. She used to try to avoid the spotlight of the media and the general public as much as possible.

According to a few accounts, Carole Ann Boone died in a retirement community in Washington State in 2018.
