Ted Bundy: Evidence From Taylor Mountain: 158 items; Over 500 personnel; 176 vehicles; Over 13,000 man hours…. Skeletal Remains of Victims…

 

Document #1:  ESAR finds Taylor Mountain– March of 1975 =  [158 finds]  these are copied here directly from the Original documents in the Search and Rescue files and reports of that day in 1975.  These were not “kids” as claimed publicly but professionals — many of whom drove many miles to help on site.   There was much more found than simply skulls and jawbones.  Evidence that was never protected and never worked – broken chain of custody problems in multiple places. Additionally, there was an unidentified young girl found at Taylor Mountain whose remains did not match those of the other victims found there – that is in the original files in multiple places.

Tiger Mountain:  In the search and rescue records of that day, real time, on -site, there were searches conducted at Tiger Mountain and finds from Tiger Mountain and notations in the records that indicated victims were found at Tiger Mountain.  In a victim summary document in the files, Tiger Mountain was crossed off and “Issaquah” was hand written in and Issaquah is what the public account has always been.  What was the reason for the cross off of Tiger Mountain and this location never mentioned?  Was it simply semantics or something else?  Tiger Mountain is across highway 18 from Taylor Mountain which was a major site of Bundy despite public statements to the contrary.  Tiger Mountain on the original map shows what appears to be string lines from the search grid encompassing a mirror type of grid to Taylor Mountain with string lines marked.  This original map shows the grid lines of search areas of Taylor Mountain, with the grid lines of Tiger Mountain -both areas and both filed by search and rescue teams. There would be no need to identify the string lines and grid if the Tiger Mountain area, smaller apparently in circumference than Taylor Mountain per the map drawn, was never searched. It is interesting in the files that this same map appears to have the Tiger Mountain grid lines whited out and someone has hand written off to the side “LIJ” with a question mark?  why was the original map altered?  Why is Tiger Mountain listed several times in the records as the site where Ott and Naslund and one other unidentified girl was found?  Why were tibias and fibulas sent to the ME on 3-8-1984 unlabeled in a box of elk bones?  Other bones were also sent there [skeletal remains] on the same date and these have the K numbers which identify them as the original finds taken from Taylor Mountain in the initial search. Why weren’t the bones with elk bones labeled?

In addition a young girl was found in a nearby area to Taylor Mountain who fit Bundy’s characteristics of victim selection much earlier than 1974 not less than 10 miles from the trail head of Taylor Mountain.  Witness statements from back then put Bundy in the area of the kill sites as far back as 1972 and also state that on one occasion he was at the exact location that was later found to be the entrance to the crime scene of Taylor Mountain.

I have trouble believing with all the public interest in the disappearing girls from 1970 to 1975 that authorities were so naive that they failed to protect over 300 pieces of evidence, didn’t recognize the significance of Taylor Mountain, and discounted the searches and findings of Tiger Mountain.  Civil Air Patrol noted these searches of Tiger Mountain in their report of that time period and while it does appear that CAP also was at Taylor Mountain in the report it clearly states Tiger Mountain and the report by CAP also clearly states that the bodies of four girls were found during this overall March 1975 search.  Not just skulls and hair that officials state publicly but the “bodies” of four girls.  That’s skeletal remains – skeletal remains removed from Taylor Mountain in 1975 were confirmed in Texas in 2005 and that matches search and rescue reports and other evidence as well in these original records. The public story is false and always has been.  Just because they all of a sudden on TV 20/20 state quickly “bodies” and then gloss over Taylor Mountain doesn’t mean the decades of lies [nothing found there] are okay – it doesn’t mean that because they sent the girls’ remains to TX in 2005 to confirm the bodies were found there doesn’t mean its okay. Keppel keeps making money on this and he has been doing so for decades at the expense of the cases; the FBI was far more involved than their public statement that they didn’t get involved until 1977 being active in WA State and also in Utah so their public comments that it was so “mysterious” are not true at all – when does this ever end?

Whatever the reason for what appears to be an official cover up, it is alarming given the gravity of the situation of those years.  It is alarming to me that the cross offs and “X”s are found on several critical documents of those years, not just the search and rescue reports but many documents and that the interviews in prison with Bundy are not true to what was publicly released about them and that within those unredacted tapes are multiple instances where the interview taping was purposely shut down in order for something to be discussed between Bundy and the officials – there are outright comments in there related to “shut down the tape for a minute” and then the taping resumes.  Bundy’s attorneys are never present and only designated officials are with him. Bundy had been working with the FBI in 1973 on a project and with high ranking officials.  Was he being given special consideration? FBI was meeting with him behind the scenes and helping facilitate his communications with the Green River Task Force despite public comments to the contrary – the original documents don’t lie.

Tiger Mountain Civil Air Patrol findings of March of 1975, conducted simultaneously to the search being conducted at Taylor Mountain included per their formal reports:  March 6, 1975: 0430  First units en route to pickup and proceed to site Tiger Mountain; finds  for the day 7 with possible human remains 5.  March 7, 1975, finds for the day 8, classified as good, or possible human remains.  March 8, 1975, finds for the 9 probable human remains.  Site: 1/2 mile from milepost 24, state route 18.  Man hours put in by CAP – 1386.3.  One skeletal bone identified by its evidence number was logged in by CAP and also assigned an evidence number by a detective on site and noted in his record and that bone was sent to TX in 2005 and was determined by DNA to be human remains, though I do not know by the records if that skeletal bone was one that was confirmed to be one of the missing girls or one of the 12 skeletal remains sent that was never identified in TX and there were a few that did not match the girls known to be missing and found there.

Here are the stats directly from the original search records/documents for the people who were on site at Taylor Mountain from 3-3-1975 to 3-8-1975:  Persons total: 567; Man hours total: 13, 376.75; Number of vehicles driven to the scene:  176; Number of miles persons traveled to get to the site total:  18,990.  Additionally, DNA was in its infancy before Bundy was executed –  it was being used in a trial in Florida just down the road from where he was held and so authorities cannot claim being naive that forensics was advancing.

 There is also a corresponding map which shows locations of many of the finds.  The map that has been put forward for years publicly was significantly edited from what the original contained.  Search teams included units that traveled from Skagit County, Pierce County, King County, Dayton County, Spokane County, and others as well as Seattle police and Civil Air Patrol Washington National Guard.  They were professionals.  When you review this list, think about what has been publicly stated and decide whether you think what was found was insignificant….. The people who have been publicly the face of the case and recounting its “facts” are supposed to be professionals reflecting the values of the justice system.  Other cases as old or older were preserved to be worked later – you’re telling me they had no idea of the magnitude of what was found at Taylor Mountain and did not protect the evidence of the Issaquah [or Tiger Mountain]kill sites?

When you evaluate the locations of all these finds in relation to each other you also  begin to see a clearer picture of what could have been happening at the kill site. I don’t believe, based on evidence it was a dumping ground nor do I believe he kept body parts anywhere in WA.  The clothing was on site, the girls bodies were on site and if you compare the original records to the list of evidence of the original Green River killer sites, which was also released to me buried in the Bundy evidence they are similar in scope and what they contained.  There is evidence of animal activity and evidence of possible burial and evidence the killer was more than likely on site multiple times for undetermined lengths of time.  Bundy didn’t evolve into a killer overnight and even in the records there is evidence of prior rape in 1972 and that he was out in the Taylor Mountain and Issaquah areas as early as 1972 and 1973.  There is also my account which though scattered and shattered as memories, lined up exactly to details which had never been released to the finds at Taylor Mountain, the location, and the detective notes and records of the original case files.  Yet they have blocked me for nearly two decades – literally blocked me and refused to investigate or even let me have access to the justice system.  I have it all in writing.

In addition to these finds, a group of detectives went out to the crime scene one month approximately after the initial search and rescue teams were out there.  This was on 4-9-1975.  One detective, per his notes of that time period, found two bones he noted as 35 feet one inch west of the 1000/1000 mark on string line 50.  It was assigned an evidence number and that evidence number is on bones sent to TX in 2005 that were human remains and from the girls originally found on Taylor Mountain, confirming that skeletal remains were found there and begging the question as to why this was denied to the public for decades.  Detective notes of that search also reveal that there were several real-time, on site investigation notes, of requisitioning leg x-rays from missing girls families at that time. If no skeletal remains were found on site why were multiple detectives requesting leg x-rays?  Also only one known victim had a deformity of those leg bones and that was Georgann Hawkins.  She had a deformity of the tibia and fibula [not noticeable except on x-ray].  Her dental records would not have been needed.  A human tibia and fibula were sent to the ME office in March of 1984 in a box of elk bones marked only “Bundy bones Taylor Mountain” with no paperwork.  It raises a red flag: what kind of police department or professional would send remains of victims over to the ME office in a serious investigation of multiple homicides against young girls without paperwork?  To me, that represents more than negligence.

I was coming forward for over a decade from 2001 to 2011 when I went to the FBI finally severely traumatized by what had happened, nearly incapacitated by the memories and the documentation that I had gathered which proved it, begging authorities to look at what I was saying because Georgann had been a friend and I’d seen him with her that night.  I was callously turned away and shadowed by a person connected to this case who I was told multiple times by several people that he was interfering with and attempting to block me from the justice system process.

Taylor Mountain was found in March of 1975 before Bundy was picked up in Utah.   Evidence was being cataloged and forwarded to Superior Court of WA – a federal branch – BEFORE any charges were put forward and before charges against Bundy were done.  Is it customary procedure to remove evidence from a crime scene and forward it to the Superior Court? Detective notes of that time period state on the record that this is where the evidence was being sent.  There are places in the records where evidence is noted as being entered into King County evidence rooms from “other” and dates and times do not line up.  For instance sign in of evidence is one day later than find of evidence and/or one day earlier than noted.

Further, there doesn’t appear to be a chain of custody following any of this evidence through normal routes.   i.e. they disappeared into a “black hole” of evidence where no chain of custody was ever implemented.  How long had the federal officials known that Ted Bundy was the killer?  He had to come up on the DMV report of 4-1975 and he was identified to them back in October 1974 – the reporting officer at the time called the information over to Utah – he followed through although officials deny it [that is in the records despite the public statements to the contrary which continue to this day such as 20/20] – and Bundy matched all the points of witness descriptions of Lake Sammamish and they had the two kill sites of Sammamish and Taylor Mountain by March of 1975.

There were also multiple witness statements who were approached by him when Susan Rancourt disappeared so they had descriptions there [and could have put him in a lineup long before Carol DaRonch was assaulted].  They had witness statements from Brenda Ball and they had several witness statements from the night Georgann Hawkins disappeared – people who had seen him in the area that night. They were NOT out immediately following Hawkins’ disappearance. There is so much to this public story that is false.

Yet he was only routinely picked up in Utah after DaRonch escaped and by a routine patrolman mid August 1975.  In Utah, he had attended a party at a prosecutor’s home in the fall of 1974 with a woman he was dating at the time who had a child much like his situation with Liz in WA.  There was a young girl he attempted to kidnap right before he took Debbie Kent in Murray and according to the local newspaper report there was a key on scene and that key matched the handcuffs DaRonch had on. That key per the newspaper was sent to the FBI – what happened to it?  Why wasn’t it used in DaRonch’s trial?  why wasn’t the WA State evidence correlated – they had his name, his vehicle, his description and eyewitness testimony by summer of 1975.  FBI was present in Utah before Bundy was transferred to Utah under a judge’s reluctance to do so at the time.  He was empowered to keep killing for months when WA State had all the witness statements from Issaquah which clearly stated a bronze/tan VW [or VW] accurate descriptions of what he looked like, and multiple reports of people who could have identified him.

Meanwhile on August 1, 1975 a detective in WA State back dated a record to March of 1975 stating that he’d asked the ME what would be needed to have a finding of decapitation and the ME’s answer was what the public story became. However, the original ME who examined the evidence of human remains from Taylor Mountain when it was originally removed from the crime scene site stated that the heads were with the bodies, indicating no decapitation and multiple detective and police notes of that period indicate human remains and skeletal remains were indeed found on Taylor Mountain.

Two weeks later approximately after the record was back dated about what was needed for decapitation to be found at the scene, Bundy was picked up.  Some of the evidence found at Taylor Mountain and at Issaquah and taken into custody mirrored what had been found in Utah in autopsies. Decapitation was not found in Utah victims that I can see in either autopsy reports or detective notes.  It is not documented in the sites in Washington.  Utah and WA State compared notes on some of this – yet never filed murder charges against Bundy or held him on the basis of so much evidence – they sent him to Colorado where there was even less evidence at the time.  In the original tapes of that time period, unredacted, 1984, it is mentioned that the judge in Utah only transferred Bundy to Colorado under pressure and did not want to.  Who was pressuring him….The question is why?

Later in the spring or summer of 1975, another detective was taking in a taped jack handle, an axe and a leather beaded corded necklace that was Bundy’s in WA.  A leather beaded type of necklace was also found on one of Bundy’s victims per their autopsy report in Utah.  These were critical items of evidence – matching the murder “kit” Bundy had in Utah.  What was going on back then for officials to go to such great lengths to prevent the public from knowing the truth about the WA State activity by Bundy? Was it simply the fact that Bundy had been working with the FBI and Law & Justice on a project in 1973 per the records or is it something else?  He was a prolific serial killer just like any other serial killer but he has been turned into a legend by the officials who have used this case to build their careers and profit from it. Several people from WA State went on to have careers with the FBI after the Bundy cases.  The public sees and hears a lot about the Bundy “tapes” and the officials talking about him on TV and in media but never has there been an in-depth review of the actual original records of the investigations in multiple states during that time period.  There has been very little discussion of the forensics of that time period that is at all based on fact and the records of that day.  There has been very little about all the evidence that was present all along – instead it was “mysterious” that Bundy got away with everything.  Really?  They had his name, VW and color, witness descriptions by no later than fall of 1974.  Why did WA State not act?  Why did Utah not act? Why was he transferred over a judge’s reluctance to CO where there was even less evidence?

Note:  On the maps of the search area of Taylor Mountain, across the stream from where find #30 [blue jean material], #55 [tennis shoe], #80 [bone], #57 [clothing] and #58 [green coat] there is an “x” labeled simply “clothing pile”.  This is not noted on the finds list. Is this something they found as a “pile” and did not note it as deemed it insignificant or is this where they tossed any clothing items [in a general pile] -?  Regardless, in a serial killer case where many young girls were missing, any clothing or evidence found would be critically important to preserve – even if it is ruled out later and even if it is a “pile”  ?Also of interest is the tennis shoe – Man’s or woman’s?  If a man’s tennis shoe, Bundy was wearing white tennis shoes by witness descriptions when he abducted Ott and Naslund.  Two cases where police had multiple descriptions, evidence at Issaquah [where the girls were found] and could have charged him.  If his tennis shoe, or another of his tennis shoes,was found at Taylor Mountain [and DNA confirmed it later] for evaluation of the case it could indicate several things:  that he wore these when he abducted other girls, that he may have moved living captive girls in between the sites of Issaquah and Taylor Mountain for awhile using the abandoned homes nearby to conceal and contain them [much like in my memories of where he kept me at times].  How do you lose and fail to work so much evidence and witness statements?

Yet instead, they always talk about Georgann Hawkins, who was never found [no remains] and Bundy’s “final confession” where he never talked about anything else and when there is no proof at all of decapitation in Bundy’s sites —when they had mountains of evidence that could have conclusively put him directly connected to missing and murdered girls.  Is Robert Keppel charging for the use of these tapes?  They were not gathered as an independent citizen but as an officer of the law.  Why was he empowered to write a book for profit [which is full of inaccuracies] before he left employment of the state and before cases were closed?

Officials say they solved the Hawkins case due to Bundy’s “confession” – but there’s no proof of that.  Hawkins remains officially missing and in the records she is listed as Taylor Mountain, not Issaquah. Nothing has ever corroborated his statements that he decapitated her at Issaquah.  Rather, it is the opposite:  skeletal remains were found at Taylor Mountain, that were proven in 2005 to be three of the four girls found there; and an unidentified skeleton of another girl was found; and lastly the tibias and fibulas put into a box of elk bones and moved to the ME office in 1984 could have been identifying factors for Hawkins [she had a deformity of these] if they had protected the evidence.  I can corroborate I saw him with her that night but that is all I can corroborate.  The critical evidence was never protected and I personally wouldn’t believe anything they release now as so much was contaminated and nothing was ever done for decades and no chain of custody was ever implemented.  By their own public story, nothing was found at Taylor Mountain but a few skulls and jawbones and bunches of hair and the evidence of Issaquah was “lost” by the ME.

Note:  Chemical bottles [find #25] were found within the crime scene at Taylor Mountain.  Bundy told Liz in Utah that he had date rape drugs.  It is noted in her book.  He worked with a medical supply company and would have had access to these drugs.  He also talked of the possible use of drugs and alcohol to ply victims while they were held captive by the Green River killer.  One Utah victim’s blood tests showed alcohol poisoning in her autopsy report. I also complained of feeling drugged and could not remember most of the rapes and what happened while I was held in captivity and this is documented in emails going back to 2001 as well the memory lapses in my recollections which remain even now.  A woman reported Bundy for rape in 1972 but was dismissed and discounted by cops at the time for being “imbibed” and yet this imbibing is part of Bundy’s MO with the women he assaulted and killed in captivity per at least one autopsy, this prior rape report and my statements which preceded the records by years.

These chemical bottles found on site at Taylor Mountain and possibly at Issaquah were important to the crime scene.  Bottles were found at Issaquah but were not noted as to type.  Both Taylor Mountain and Issaquah crime sites were near to abandoned homes as well as these are noted in the police records.  In those abandoned homes there was red matter collected from the walls of the basement as evidence potentially.  It is not noted what happened to this red matter/evidence in the records that I have.  There are many items of evidence that have very questionable chain of custody tracking on them – items signed in a day earlier to evidence than when they were noted as being found; items sent forward to Superior Court before any charges were ever levied against Bundy and then that evidence simply “disappears” and so on.

There is a lot here in these original records [all stamped original] that raise serious questions about conduct back then– I personally would like to know why all of this information was suppressed from public knowledge and an account made public which denied its existence.  Especially when so many unsolved cases remain and Bundy was a prolific serial killer and the FBI report in 1992 essentially just gave up on all of it with a statement of “we’ll never know” – perhaps -but we certainly never had a chance to know when they concealed all that they did and released so much publicly that isn’t supported by the actual case files.  The fact that the FBI and State of WA issued an edict that they would only use DNA in Bundy cases in 2011 [after “finding” a vial of blood in Florida that failed to get destroyed per a preexisting order to be destroyed – raising another series of questions] – at least that is what they told me when I was trying to come forward and they were denying me an investigation – which they claim they did [much later] and buried it in another case file and never interviewed me or reviewed information with me causing me repeated trauma and terror literally that I would be harmed for asking so many questions – this edict for only DNA again raises questions. With all the other state of the art forensics techniques available, witness accounts that were never fully reviewed or incorporated, and the fact that DNA degrades over time especially when chain of custody isn’t implemented raises more questions than it answers.  No, it’s time for a new look by independent professionals who are capable of challenging what is “known” about the Bundy cases.  I was terrified of Ted Bundy back then for what I had endured and when my memories came back I was terrified of the memories and of being ridiculed and not believed and then I was terrified again by law enforcement when I tried coming forward with documentation and again was threatened and ridiculed and bullied.  I am through being traumatized and having to be fearful for wanting the truth.  I put this up to stand up to them and reclaim my self esteem as a survivor and to  call them out for the bullies that they are.
