The incident was the subject of a moving, tragic television film, "Adam" made in the 1980s.

August 11, 1980 -- Carol Bundy confesses her connection to Hollywood's "Sunset Slayer".

I had not heard of this case. Lot of twisted people out there, I'm afraid.

Yes, and I noted that the man who confessed to the crime had watched the TV movie. They aren't sure if he was telling the truth or not, since they couldn't find Adam's body where he said it was, but at this late date... well, it's all we've got.

Hi Pat,

I read the article. Was Clark ever executed? Is Bundy still in prison?

Given her last name, one wonders if she is a distant relative of Ted Bundy.

Carol Bundy died in 2003 while incarnated.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carol_M._Bundy

Doug Clark is aged 68 and still on Death Row in California.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doug_Clark

How could they agree to throw their lives away by doing such evil?

Hi Pat,

Because, unfortunately, they enjoyed the thrill - like Brady and Hindley, Ted Bundy, Dahlmer, Gacy, Ramirez, etc.

Very true, very true. So-- would you say that serial killers are "addicted" to killing, just as other people are addicted to drink, sex, or drugs?
Interesting thought.

Very possibly. Many of them are not fully satisfied in their lifestyles or the manner of how they make a living, so the idea of killing those they consider weaker then them is a release - and habit forming like drink, sex, or drugs. And sometimes drink, sex, or drugs are combined with the motivation to inflict pain for a thrill.

Aug. 13, 1961: Yosemite Killer Cary Stayner is born. After a traumatized childhood, including abuse and the kidnapping of his brother by a molester, Stayner would, in the Nineties, murder four people near California's Yosemite National Park. (Sounds too much for even the most lurid of TV-movies.)
