Sometimes to fight evil, you must enlist evil. That’s exactly what happened many years ago when serial killer Ted Bundy was enlisted to help capture the Green River Killer, and with the January 12th DVD release of The Riverman that tale is finally being told.
Based on real-life events recounted in the best-selling book The Riverman: Ted Bundy and I Hunt for the Green River Killer (co-written by Robert Keppel, former chief criminal investigator for the attorney general of Washington state), The Riverman recounts Keppel’s efforts to track down mass murderer Gary Ridgeway, aka the Green River Killer.
With ten unsolved murders weighing on his mind, Keppel (Bruce Greenwood, Star Trek, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Déjà Vu) recruits imprisoned serial killer Ted Bundy (Cary Elwes, The Princess Bride, SAW, The Alphabet Killer, and A Christmas Carol) to help find the killer-at-large.
Sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole in 2003, Ridgeway was convicted of 48 murders, but confessed to 71 … and authorities suspect it was actually more than 90.
