  • Ted Bundy’s old house in Utah has been inundated with murder tourists.
  • The notorious serial killer lived there between 1974 and 1975 while attending the nearby law school.
  • A current tenant told TMZ that the number of people poking around has increased since the Netflix series and film trailer about the notorious serial killer dropped.
  • The tenants are apparently upset about the invasion of their privacy.

The release of the Netflix docu-series “Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes” and Zac Efron’s new film “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” have ramped up interest in the notorious serial killer.

So much so that more visitors than ever are focking to his former house in Salt Lake City, Utah, TMZ reports.

A tenant of the two-storey boarding home told TMZ that the amount of people wanting to look around the house, which was home to Ted Bundy from 1974-1975 while he attended the nearby law school, has increased since the release of the series and the film trailer.

With five rooms, the tenant said someone currently lives in Bundy’s old abode, “Room 2” – though it has now been relabeled as “Room 5.”

Some people simply want to take photos of the outside, they said, but others intrude on the tenants’ privacy by poking around the grounds to look at the fire escape which he used to come and go in secret.

Near the house, there is also a utility closet…

…and a cellar, both of which police apparently searched for evidence before Bundy was executed.

Bundy was given the death penalty three times for the murders of three women. Before his execution, he confessed to the murders of 30 women between 1974 and 1978.

But some experts believe Bundy killed over 100 people.

Visitors to the property are beginning to upset some of the residents, they added, and they close their blinds because of the invasion of privacy. While visitors only used to crop up at Halloween, now they appear all the time, they said.
