Born Theodore Robert Bundy, the violent sex offender was sentenced to death after confessing to some 30 murders.

However some detectives claim the actual number of Bundy’s victims in the 1970s could be much higher.

And while many serial killers take home a ‘trophy’ from their victim to remember their kill, evil Bundy far surpassed the others too.

After bludgeoning his female victims to death, and sometimes spending the night with their dead bodies, he would often remove their heads with a hacksaw and take them back to his apartment to keep as mementos.

With the severed heads on display at home, sick Bundy would wash their hair, apply make-up to them, and engage in sexual acts with them.

When asked why he kept such grisly tokens he replied: “When you work hard to do something right, you don’t want to forget it.”

Shortly before his death, Bundy gave an exclusive interview with Dr James Dobson about his early life and what drove him to commit his horrific murders.

In the 45-minute interview, Bundy talked about how his obsession with pornography drove him to become a killer.

He said: "As a young boy – and I mean a boy of 12 or 13, certainly – I encountered outside the home softcore pornography. From time to time we’d come across pornographic books of a harder nature – more graphic, you might say – and this also included such things as detective magazines.

"The most damaging kinds of pornography are those that involve sexual violence, because the wedding of those two forces, as I know only too well, brings about behaviour that is just too terrible to describe."

The documentary is based on 100 hours of confessions recorded while he was being held on Death Row.

In the chilling audio tapes, Bundy says: "I’m not an animal and I’m not crazy, and I don’t have a split personality.
