I Survived Ted Bundy; Kathy Kleiner Tells Her Story

I Survived Ted Bundy; Kathy Kleiner Tells Her Story

Kathy Kleiner was asleep in her Florida sorority house, Chi Omega, in 1978 when the notorious serial killer Ted Bundy broke in and brutalized her and her roomate. Bundy had killed sorority sisters Margarette Bowman and Lisa Levy as well. He fled the sorority house and immediately broke into a duplex up the street and attacked Cheryl Thomas, leaving her in a coma. Kathy testified against Bundy at his trial. I spoke with Kathy Kleiner about the attack, the trial and the aftermath.
