    NJ - Susan Davis & Elizabeth Perry, both 19, Somers Point, 30 May 1969

    I never see any posts about these two girls found strangled and stabbed along the Garden State Parkway (mile post 31.9), near the Somers Point/Ocean City exit around Memorial Day 1969.

    They have been identified, but the killer(s) have never been identified. There is some speculation that these were Ted Bundy's first kills.

    The victims names are: Susan Davis and Elizabeth Perry, both 19 at the time.

    I grew up in Phila., PA and remember hearing about this case.

    Im a Philly girl myself & have heard of them to but I beg to differ about Ted Bundy.
    No way were these girls murdered by Bundy. He killed in Washington,Idaho,Colorado,Utah & Florida.He was never on the East Coast............in all the years & all the research this is just coming out now??? Im not buying it & sadly think trying to tie to something 'infamous'takes away from a real investigation.

    Do we know how these girls were murdered?

    I am also wondering if their vehicle was broken down or not. Does anyone know?

    There's speculation that a young neighbor of Bundy's was his first. Not to say that this one can't be connected either, since he did go clear across to Florida.

    I have an elderly relative who lives full time down the shore(born & raised) & collects minute details of anything gruesome that happens down that way .She also phrases it within a "cautionary tale" at EVERY opportunity!

    Bundy discussed his visit to the Jersy Shore in 1969 during his final confessions. He lived in Philly for a brief time with a relative and attended a college here (Temple U? Not sure what school).

    There is a new book out about this crime and possible Bundy links. However, I have read about the his link to these murders for years in various local papers.

    "The Origins of Infamy" by Christian Barth.

    Wow - I have the same kinds of memories. My sister was 19 years old at the time and visited the shore many times with her friends. This was the "Summer of LOVE." Boy did my parents use this as a cautionary tail for her. Thank God she is alive.

    I was a menapause baby and was 11 years old at the time. I guess my Mom & Dad were having a second family or something like that.

    According to Ann Rule, he traveled the entire East Coast..that being said, I don't think he did these two murders..but both families believe he did...only one who knows for sure is Bundy

    This crime was totally different than any of Bundy's known crimes.
