Ted Bundy's DNA profile has been uploaded in CODIS in the hopes of solving decades old cold cases.The DNA profile for Ted Bundy, one of the United States' most notorious serial killers, has been uploaded into CODIS in the hope of solving cold cases. Bundy was convicted of three murders but boasted of killing 30 people.

No full profile existed for Bundy, who sexually assaulted and killed young women in Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Idaho, Utah, and Florida between 1974 and 1978. Recently, a vial of Bundy's blood dating from 1978 was found in a refrigerator in Columbia County, Florida. Though much of the liquid proved to be useless, there was enough material to allow officials to produce a DNA profile.

"Technology in 1989 was very different than today," said Keith Kameg, a spokesperson for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. "As technology gets better, there is a larger possibility that some cold cases could be solved."
