Ted Bundy DNA may link killer to cold cases

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- Tacoma cold case detectives hope DNA from serial killer Ted Bundy will tell them whether he was responsible for the abduction of an 8-year-old girl in 1961.
The News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/oWJifv ) Bundy has long been a suspect in the disappearance of Ann Marie Burr. He frequently visited a relative in her neighborhood.
Although he confessed to killing 30 victims before his execution in 1989 in Florida, Bundy denied having anything to do with Burr's disappearance.
Bundy's DNA profile was recently obtained from a blood sample he gave in Florida. When that information is in the national FBA database, detectives will be able to compare it with evidence in the Tacoma girl's case as well as other cold cases.
