Debbie Harry reveals that she escaped clutches of serial killer Ted Bundy – Mirror Online

Debbie Harry was once lured into a car by serial killer Ted Bundy, only to mount a daring escape.

The Blondie singer, 73, is expected to reveal in depth in a new autobiography her late-night encounter with the murderer, who was executed in 1989.

She has said of her scare in New York: “It was in the early 70s and I was trying to get across town at two or three o’clock in the morning.

“This little car kept coming around and offering me a ride. I kept saying no but finally I took it because I couldn’t get a cab.

“I got in the car and the windows were all rolled up, except for a tiny crack. This driver had an incredibly bad smell to him.

“I looked down and there were no door handles. The inside of the car was stripped. The hairs on the back of my neck just stood up.

“I wiggled my arm out of the window and pulled the door handle from the outside. I don’t know how I did it, but I got out.

“He tried to stop me by spinning the car but it sort of helped me fling myself out. Afterwards I saw him on the news. It was Ted Bundy.”

Bundy admitted murdering 30 women in seven states between February 1974 and February 1978, but the true figure is thought to be much higher.

He was first arrested in 1975 for ­kidnapping Carol DaRonch, and sentenced to 15 years in jail.

But in 1977 he escaped by jumping out of a prison library window before being recaptured for eight days and then escaping once again.

He continued to kill until finally being caught by police in 1978.

Bundy’s story is told in new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, starring Zac Efron.

Debbie announced yesterday that she is writing her memoir for the first time.

Called FACE IT, the book promises to recreate the “downtown scene of 1970s New York City, where she, with Blondie, played alongside David Bowie.”

She said: “There are many stories for me to tell; some funny, some scary, some warm, some chill to the bone.

“I realised I have led a very full life.”
