Ted Bundy's DNA profile entered into national database

The DNA profile of serial killer Ted Bundy has been added to a national database where it can be compared to evidence from unsolved cases.

In addition, evidence gathered in connection with the 1961 disappearance of a Tacoma girl has been sent to the Washington State Patrol crime lab to see whether it contains DNA that could point to a suspect in the case.

Bundy, a teenager in Tacoma at the time, has long been suspected in the case of 8-year-old Ann Marie Burr, who vanished from her North End home 50 years ago.

The evidence in her case, submitted last week for the DNA test, had never been analyzed. Results could take a couple of months.
