Ted Bundy's uncle's house
Serial Killer House in Tacoma, Washington, United States
This is the house where Ted Bundy's great uncle John "Jack" R. Cowell lived.
When Ted and his mother Louise left Philadelphia in 1950, they stayed at this address in Tacoma for a short period of time.
Ted was just four years old when they moved to the west coast.
US census records from 1950 show that Jack Cowell was living at 1514 South Alder Street with his wife Eleanor and their 3-year-old son John.
Jack was a professor of music who worked at a private college. He also reportedly taught piano lessons at his home.
Growing up, Ted had a great deal of admiration for his uncle. Jack was well-educated, financially secure, and successful—things that Bundy aspired to be in life.
Shortly after moving to Tacoma, Ted's mother Louise met a local hospital cook called Johnnie Bundy.
In May of 1951, the couple were married, and Johnnie decided to adopt Ted as his own son. It was around this time that Johnny, Louise, and Ted moved into a house on South Sheridan Avenue.
