Ted Bundy in prison. Right: Florida State University building.

The Chi Omega sorority house that Ted Bundy terrorized in 1978 still stands today, like many other true crime destinations in the South.

This article contains content that may be upsetting to some of our readers.

According to social media, it appears as though the Chi Omega sorority still thrives in Florida today.

In January 2020, the Prime Video docuseries Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer was released, just after the 42nd anniversary of the killings at the Chi Omega house on January 15, 1978. The property is located at 661 W. Jefferson St., at Florida State University in Tallahassee.

As the true crime documentary retells, Bundy escaped from prison and made his way to Florida in the 1970s. He broke into the sorority home, viciously murdering Margaret Bowman and Lisa Levy, and attacking two other victims at the sorority house, Karen Chandler and Kathy Kleiner, who both survived.

Bundy was not apprehended until a month later.

The FSU sorority that saw the horrors of that night still exists in several chapters across the country, and the Florida house that Bundy terrorized still stands at the same location.

The renovated house looks a bit different decades after the tragic attacks occurred. It has been painted grey, but the Chi Omega Greek letters still hang above the house's red door.

The building's dark past has not stopped future generations of young women from enjoying life in the space. Past recruitment videos showcase life at the sorority today.

Narcity reached out to the Chi Omega house for comments but has yet to hear back.
