On the night before Ted Bundy was executed, he spent most of his time crying and praying. At 7 a.m. on January 24, 1989, Bundy was strapped into the electric chair at Starke State prison in Florida. Superintendent Tom Barton asked Bundy if he had any last words, to which he replied:
“Jim and Fred, I’d like you to give my love to my family and friends.”
He was speaking to his lawyer Jim Coleman and to Fred Lawrence, a Methodist minister who spent the evening in prayer with Bundy. Both nodded their heads.
