Theodore Bundy was an American multiple killer who murdered more than 30 women, primarily college students and young women, between 1974 and 1978.
After being caught, the criminal fought his convictions for years, but eventually died in the electric chair in January 1989.
According to prosecutor Carpio, the Baja California killer preys on vulnerable women who are alone, persuades them to meet him in private, and then kills them.
“Related analyzes are carried out to see if there is a possibility of confirming or ruling out some other events, which coincide with the modus operandi characteristics,” the prosecutor insisted.

Cárdenas was imprisoned for more than 30 years, but unlike Bundy, he was acquitted in 1976 and died in freedom in 1999 at the age of 82.
