SEATTLE -- True-crime writer Ann Rule, who wrote more than 30 books, including a profile of her former co-worker, serial killer Ted Bundy, has died at age 83.
Scott Thompson, a spokesman for CHI Franciscan Health, said Rule died at Highline Medical Center at 10:30 p.m. Sunday. Rule's daughter, Leslie Rule, said on Facebook that her mother had many health issues, including congestive heart failure.
Rule's first book, "The Stranger Beside Me," profiled Bundy, whom Ann Rule got to know while sharing the late shift at a Seattle suicide hotline.
