Theodore Robert Bundy was the second person executed this year and the 106th person put to death in the United States since the Supreme Court lifted its ban on capital punishment in 1976.
Steve Hooker, a Florida State University police officer who investigated the Chi Omega sorority slayings, said despite the execution, he did not feel Bundy's saga had ended."I came this morning looking for a sense of finality and I'm leaving without that sense," Hooker said.
Steve Bodiford, a Leon County deputy sheriff who also investigated the FSU slayings, said he found "no sense of joy" in Bundy's death.
"There's a sense of sadness that there is this evil in our society that must be dealt with in this manner."
