She called the police hotline, pointing out all of the alarming ways her beau matched their suspect. They were looking for a man named Ted, her boyfriend was named Ted. Their Ted drove a VW, her Ted drove a VW. Their Ted had allegedly bludgeoned a woman with a fake cast and another with crutches, her Ted had recently acquired stolen cast-making material and crutches. He spent lots of time he couldn't account for out at night and slept during the day, and had receipts in his car indicating secret road trips. Her BF even resembled the police composite printed onto flyers. Either he was the guy, or the real guy was trying like hell to frame him.
Kloepfer shared all this information with the police while she and Ted were still sharing the same bed and shakily building a life together. Her tip would be lumped in with all the other random tips the police were getting at the time, and ultimately ignored. (The friend insists that they were dismissed because they had said Ted's VW was "tan," and the Ted the cops wanted drove a "bronze" Beetle. There have to be millions of creepy Teds in America driving some similar shade of Beetle, you fool!).
Still, Kloepfer tried again. Ted had moved to Utah, and women started going missing there too. And again, police were looking for a man named Ted who drove a Volkswagen Bug. If you're trying to map out this criminal conspiracy, imagine a bulletin board with a bunch of pieces of red yarn all pointing to Ted Bundy. She called the police again in November and was interviewed, and according to some sources, she tried again a month later. She was told that police had already looked into Bundy and cleared him.
Bundy would finally get arrested in August of 1975, then escape multiple times (in one case, insisting on acting as his own attorney and then escaping from the window of the law library) and continue murdering until 1978. Kloepfer, by the way, continued dating Bundy after his arrest, and even sat with his family at his 1976 trial. You have to think that at that point, even Bundy himself was alarmed by how easy this all was.
