  • Details of Disappearance
    Ms. Cunningham was last seen in Vail, Colorado on march 15, 1975. She disappeared early in the evening after she left her apartment in the Apollo Park neighborhood to visit a local tavern. She has never been heard from again.

    Although never charged in her case, serial killer Ted Bundy confessed to Cunningham's murder. Bundy stated that he lured her into his vehicle by posing as an injured skier on crutches and asking her to help carry his ski boots. He claims he knocked her unconscious, drove her to a remote area about eighty miles west of Vail and raped her. He states that he strangled her and then disposed of her body in a shallow grave near Rifle, CO in a high desert area with a circular drive and some large trees. Her body was never found, however.
