He had a girlfriend, political aspirations and — as the newspapers would later say — "a winning smile." And from 1974 to 1978, wherever Ted Bundy went, women disappeared. Like a phantom, he slipped through sorority rows, preyed outside of schoolyards and ski resorts, and proved that you don’t really know the person next to you. But could Bundy — and his reputation as one of the country's most depraved killers — have been stopped cold in Colorado? Two days into a week-and-a-half ski trip, Caryn Campbell left her fiance in the lobby of their Snowmass, Colorado, hotel, boarded an elevator and was last seen walking toward her second-floor room in search of a magazine. She didn't come back, and a few hours later, around 10:30 p.m., her … [Read more...] about Ted Bundy: Could his spree have ended in Colorado?
'Tis the season to be marathon training. And absolutely hating it. The dark evenings are bad enough, but now that it's bitterly cold outside, it's tempting to just light the fire and curl up on the sofa with your favourite Netflix series.

WASHINGTON – With no breakthrough in sight, President Donald Trump will argue his case to the nation Tuesday night that a “crisis” at the U.S.-Mexico border requires the long and invulnerable wall he’s demanding before ending the partial government shutdown. Hundreds of thousands of federal workers face missed paychecks Friday as the shutdown drags through a third week. Trump’s Oval Office speech – his first as president – will be followed by his visit Thursday to the southern border to highlight his demand for a barrier.
