Netflix’s ‘Ted Bundy Tapes’ features Colorado reporter Ward Lucas
Until two weeks ago, Ward Lucas didn’t even have a Netflix account.
Now the retired investigative reporter and television news anchor who spent three decades at Denver’s 9News is featured in one of the platform’s most talked-about new series.
“Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes” burst onto the streaming scene on Jan. 24 — a four-part series detailing the brutal, unflinching story of one America’s most notorious serial killers.
Bundy assaulted and murdered 30-some women during the 1970s in several states, including Colorado. Millions around the country followed with horror as Bundy conducted two brazen escapes over the years — he committed more assaults and murders while on the lam — before finally being recaptured in 1978. He was executed in Florida in 1989.
Lucas was there when the saga first began.
