Grand Junction Police Doubt Bundy DNA Will Solve 1975 Case

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) – Police say they’re doubtful that a recent discovery of the complete DNA profile of serial killer Ted Bundy will help solve the disappearance of a Grand Junction woman 36 years ago.

Authorities know that Bundy was in Grand Junction that spring thanks to a gas station receipt. For decades authorities have suspected Bundy may have been responsible for the unsolved disappearance of 24-year-old Denise Oliverson on April 6, 1975.

However, police tell The (Grand Junction) Daily Sentinel that the discovery last week of a full vial of Bundy’s blood likely won’t close the Oliverson case.

Before his execution in Florida in 1989, Bundy confessed he had dumped a body in a river outside of Grand Junction, but he offered no other details.
