Mexican authorities hunt for ‘Ted Bundy’-like serial killer after 3 found dead in Tijuana

A prosecutor in Tijuana, Mexico, warns that three recent killings in the city on the US border share similar characteristics to the killings of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy.

“This issue 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 well known decades ago: Ted Bundy.”

Carpio said three of the 1,859 murders recorded this year in Tijuana, which is just across the US border and 20 miles south of downtown San Diego, show signs of a killer seducing and convincing vulnerable women to meet in a private setting and then subjects her to violent sexual acts before murdering her.

In addition to the similarities in the way the crimes are carried out, Mexican authorities believe the suspect is an American who traveled across the border and have informed American authorities of the possible identity of the killer in which Hope to arrest him in the US

“We are in contact and coordinating with other institutions to locate and capture this individual,” Carpio said.

The alleged killer found his victims in strip clubs and bars in the Zona Norte community of north Tijuana, and each woman was found dead in a hotel room, KNSD-TV reported.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.

One of the most prolific serial killers in American criminal history, Bundy confessed to the kidnappings and murders of 30 women and girls in seven states between 1974 and 1978.

Known for his sympathetic nature, Bundy was able to lure women into situations in public places where he could forcibly kidnap them before beating, strangling, raping and eventually 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 for investigation,” Carpio told reporters of the hunt for the killer. Mexican authorities hunt for ‘Ted Bundy’-like serial killer after 3 found dead in Tijuana
