Carole Ann Boone Ted Bundy's Wife Romantic Story (Explained)

Carole Ann Boone was a resident of the United States and known for being the wife of a serial killer, Ted Bundy, who kidnapped, r*ped, and murdered several women and children in the 20th century. Ted Bundy has confessed to more than thirty murders after two decades.

In this article, we will find out how Carole Ann Boone met him and where she is now. Let’s find out what difficulties she faced during her marriage with Ted Bundy.

The Beginning Of Her Love With Ted Bundy

As per the report, Carole Ann Boone met Ted Bundy at the office and started their romantic relationship in 1974.

Before meeting and starting her relationship with Bundy, she had parted ways with her first husband.

When the couple met, Boone worked at the Department of Emergency Services in Olympia, Washington. At the same time, Bundy was busy assisting officers in searching the location of the ladies whom he killed.

As per the report, Stephen G. Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth wrote a book named ‘The Only Living Witness: The True Story of Serial Sex Killer Ted Bundy, which revolves around Ted Bundy’s life.

According to the book, “Boone, who met Bundy during the period of her second divorce, was “a lusty-tempered free spirit.”

In no time after parting ways and meeting Bundy, she fell in love with him and was involved romantically with a young and good-looking serial killer of the United States.

At the time of her involvement with Ted Bundy, he was going through the trial for the murder he had done before meeting Boone.

In the meantime, she supported him for the trial and moved to Florida to give Bundy her back.

Before walking down the aisle, Bonne knew everything about Ted Bundy, but she continued her will to get married to him, and they eventually married under the law.

According to the book: The Only Living Witness: The True Story of Serial Killer Ted Bundy, for the first time, Bundy showed his will to date Boone, Which she refused at first.

She said: “I guess I was closer to him than other people at the agency, I liked Ted immediately. We hit it off well.” 

Some other sources claim that at the time of her marriage to Bundy, she did not know about Bundy’s adultery, but this somehow conflicts with her action because she supported Bundy in his trial.

His Relationship With Ted Bundy 

The couple was blessed with two children, Jayme & Rose Bundy, who lived happily for some years before his arrest. And after some years of marriage, Ted Bundy was arrested, and Boone used to meet him behind bars.

The fact is that Boone had been very supportive of Bundy throughout her married life. In one of the interviews, she said: “Let me put it this way, I don’t think that Ted belongs in jail. The things in Florida don’t concern me more than those out west do.”

She further said, “I don’t think they have reason to charge Ted Bundy with murder in either Leon County or Columbia County.”

When he was imprisoned, Carole Ann decided to take the resident near the detention center so that she could meet Bundy after a week. Hence, she began living in Gainesville, about 40 miles from the detention center. 

During his trial, Bundy disclosed that his relationship with Boone had become a “more serious, romantic thing” in the recent past few years.

Some of the writers wrote about the love story and relationship of Ted Bundy. Michaud and Aynesworth wrote in their book: “They were crazy together. Carole loved him. She told him that she wanted a child, and somehow they had sex in prison. Touching was permitted, and from time to time, intercourse was possible behind a water cooler, in the restroom, or sometimes at the table.”

The fact is that these types of activities are not permitted in prison, but they managed to do, as it was disclosed once by Carole Ann Boone that one of the guards was being nice to her and had allowed her to meet him in the detention center & even ignored the activities.

A Netflix series is also created, which surrounds the life of Ted Bundy & Carole Ann Boone. In the series, Carole Ann Boone was heard saying, “After the first day, they just, they didn’t care. They walked in on us a couple of times.”

However, after going through an incomplete relationship, Bundy was imprisoned because he was involved in illegal activities.

She parted ways with Ted Bundy and relocated to Washington along with  James & Rose in 1986. The reason for her divorce was that Carole got hurt and disappointed at an adverse level after Bundy had confessed his entire illegal activities, and his betrayal was unbearable for her, so Carole Ann decided to be separated from Bundy.

Carole Changed Her Name After Parted Ways With Ted & Died Reportedly in 2018

After returning to Washington, she started a new chapter of life, and this Carole changed her name to Abigail Griffin and moved to Oklahoma along with her children.

But some resources said she remarried and returned to her normal life.

Four years ago, it was rumored that Carole Ann Boone had passed away. The reason for the death was told she passed septic shock, which is a body’s extreme response to an infection.

The news was confirmed later that she had died in 2018 in Washington at seventy. 

In a nutshell, it is stated that there is no authentic source about her marriage since she was in shock after separating from Ted Bundy, whom she loved to the core of her heart. The confession of Ted Bundy has affected her life badly because she trusted him. It was unbearable for her to digest what had been done in her life.
