A state attorney in Tijuana, Mexico warns that three recent killings in the city along the US border show similar characteristics to the killings of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy.
“This subject has criminal tendencies associated with violent and psychopathic behavior,” Baja California Attorney General Ricardo Iván Carpio told reporters in Tijuana. KSWB-TV reported. “His profile is very similar to someone who became very famous decades ago: Ted Bundy.”
Carpio said three of the 1,859 homicides recorded so far this year in Tijuana, which is directly across the U.S. border and 20 miles south of downtown San Diego, show signs of a killer seducing vulnerable women, convincing them to meet in a private setting and then subjects them to violent sexual acts before killing them.
In addition to the similarities in how the crimes are carried out, Mexican authorities believe the suspect is an American who crossed the border and informed American authorities of the possible identity of the killer in hopes of arresting him in the United States.

“We are in communication and coordinating with other institutions to locate and capture this individual,” Carpio said.
The suspected killer found his victims in strip clubs and bars in the Zona Norte community of northern Tijuana, and each woman was found dead in a hotel room, KNSD-TV reported.

Bundy was known for his affable nature and was able to lure women into public places in situations where he could forcibly abduct them before beating, strangling, raping and finally killing them.
Bundy was executed in the electric chair in 1989 after being sentenced to death in Florida.

“Without a doubt, we will arrest him and extradite him to Baja California where he will stand trial,” Carpio told reporters of the hunt for the killer.
