Blondie’s Debbie Harry: “I escaped serial killer Ted Bundy”
Debbie Harry has made an explosive claim as she says she was once lured into a taxi by serial killer Ted Bundy in the early ‘70s.
The 73-year-old is planning to reveal the entire story in her autobiography, Face It, which is set to be released in October this year.
In a previous interview with The Sun, the Blondie singer spoke about the unsettling encounter which occurred in New York City: “It was in the early ‘70s and I was trying to get across town at two or three o’clock in the morning.
“This little car kept coming around and offering me a ride.”
Harry then said she hopped inside the vehicle after many failed attempts at finding a taxi.
“I got in the car and the windows were all rolled up, except for a tiny crack. This driver had an incredibly bad smell to him.
“I looked down and there were no door handles. The inside of the car was stripped. The hairs on the back of my neck just stood up.
“I wigged my arm out of the window and pulled the door handle from the outside. I don’t know how I did it, but I got out.
“He tried to stop me by spinning the car, but it sort of helped me fling myself out. Afterwards I saw him on the news, it was Ted Bundy.”
Once Bundy was arrested, he admitted to his lawyer that he first attempted to kidnap a woman in 1969 and implied that his first murder happened in 1972.
He was only 27-years-old when his first recorded murder occurred in 1974.
He went on to kill 30 women.
But even after the serial killer was imprisoned, the nightmare wasn’t over as he managed to escape lockup twice.
