I did a search on serial killers from our area. None came up for Yakima Valley, but a ton came up for the state of Washington. Ted Bundy, who was from Tacoma, is one of the most notorious serial killers in modern history. Bundy was thought to have killed more than 36 young woman from six different states including Washington. He was executed in Florida in 1989. There is also Gary Ridgeway, the "Green River Killer."
