Liz Kloepfer's house: Where Ted Bundy's girlfriend lived.

This is the house that Ted Bundy's girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer (aka Liz Kendall) was living in when he started his killing spree.

Liz lived here at 5208 18th Avenue NE with her young daughter, Molly.

Her apartment was on the first floor, on the right side of the building. Although Ted often spent the night here, he continued to live at his apartment in the Rogers rooming house throughout most of their relationship.

This residence is a short 5-10 minute walk from the house where Bundy brutally attacked and abducted Lynda Ann Healy.

Liz and Ted met at the Sandpiper Tavern in 1969. For the next five or six years, they had a tumultuous "on-and-off" relationship.

However, their relationship came under considerable strain in 1974. This was the same year that Bundy started targeting young women in the Seattle area. 

According to Liz, Ted became distant in 1974 and would often disappear for two or three days at a time. This, coupled with his low sex drive, led her to believe that he was having an affair.

Unfortunately, the truth was much worse.

By the end of that year, Kloepfer started to suspect that Ted might be responsible for the disappearances of local women. After Bundy moved to his new apartment in Utah in September of 1974, girls suddenly stopped going missing in Seattle. Then, a couple of months later, Liz received word from a friend that women were beginning to disappear in Utah.

Furthermore, an unidentified man called "Ted" was believed to be the prime suspect in the Lake Sammamish abductions.

When she saw the police sketch of the suspect, she immediately realized that it looked like her boyfriend.

Although Liz clearly did not want to believe that her partner of five years was a serial killer, she found it very difficult to overlook such a coincidence.

5208 18th Ave NE was under surveillance.

5208 18th Ave NE

This police report mentions how detectives were keeping Liz's house at 5208 18th Ave NE under surveillance. 

At the time, Bundy was temporarily living with Liz and awaiting his trial for the kidnapping of Carol DaRonch.

By that stage, he was the prime suspect in a number of murders and disappearances. 

Consequently, when Ted arrived back in Seattle on Thanksgiving Day in 1975, local detectives decided to keep a close eye on him. This round-the-clock surveillance continued until December 12th, 1975, when Bundy flew back to Utah to prepare for his trial.

The distance between Lynda Ann Healy's house and Liz's apartment.

This map shows the distance between Lynda Ann Healy's house and Liz Kendall's apartment. As you can see, their houses were only 0.5 miles apart. Roughly speaking, it is a 5–10 minute walk.

Liz noted that in 1974, Ted's behavior started to change. Instead of staying over at her apartment, he would choose to walk home late at night.

At the time, Ted was a voyeur who liked to get drunk and roam the streets at night. This behavior stretched back as far as 1964, when he was just 17 years old.

However, by early 1974, it seems as though this behavior had evolved to the point where he was beginning to troll around for potential victims.

If we take all of this into account, it is plausible that he left Liz's apartment on the night of January 31st, 1974 and then wandered over in the direction of 12th Avenue.

Liz remembers the Healy case well because the crime took place just six blocks away from her apartment. She also remembers mentioning the case to Ted. In response, he told her to be aware at all times. He also advised her to change a poor-quality lock on the back door. In his words, the lock was "dangerous."
