The store where Ted Bundy purchased a hunting knife

On February 8th, 1978, serial killer Ted Bundy purchased a Buck General hunting knife at this store in Jacksonville, Florida.

Bundy bought the knife for $26. He was served by the owner and founder of Green Acres Sporting Goods, John Farhat.

The following day, Bundy abducted 12-year-old Kimberly Leach from her school in Lake City.

Two months after the young girl went missing, a highway patrol trooper discovered her remains in an abandoned hog trap in Suwannee River State Park.

Insect activity on her remains indicated that the cause of death was "violence to the neck area."

Although the knife was never recovered, a receipt for it was found on the floor of the stolen media van that Bundy had used to carry out the abduction.

The owner of Green Acres Sporting Goods was a key witness during Bundy's murder trial. Farhat testified in court that he remembered selling the knife to a man fitting his description.

In February 1980, Bundy was found guilty of Leach's murder and sentenced to death.

Farhat passed away in 2016 at the age of 82. Following his death, his daughter-in-law, Amanda Gazaleh, said that he never liked to talk about the case because he always felt "pity for the situation."

Unfortunately, he had no way of knowing who Bundy was or what his intentions were.
