-A young hitchhiker near Olympia in 1973, but Robert Keppel, a Washington state attorney general’s investigator, said Bundy did not provide her name.

-Two other women, who Bundy did not identify or give times of death or say where the bodies were left, Keppel said.

Thurston County authorities in Olympia, Wash., said Bundy might have been referring to two 14-year-olds last seen alive hitchhiking.

One was Katherine Merry Devine, who vanished Nov. 25, 1973, after being seen in Seattle and whose body was found 11 days later at a campground near Olympia. The other was Brenda Joy Baker, a runaway from Maple Valley, south of Seattle, last seen near Puyallup on May 27, 1974, and whose remains were found 31 days later in Millersylvania State Park.

Other cases:

Carol Valenzuela, 20, disappeared in August 1974 from Vancouver. Her remains were found near Yacolt in Clark County along with the remains of a young woman in her late teens or early 20s whose identity was never determined. Authorities are uncertain whether Bundy is connected with the murders, and Keppel said Bundy denied he was to blame.

Authorities questioned Bundy in the death of Ann Marie Burr, an 8-year-old girl in Bundy’s hometown of Tacoma, Wash., who disappeared when Bundy was 14. Bundy denied killing the girl, Keppel said.

In May 1966, two 20-year-old airline flight attendants, Lonnie Trumbell and Lisa Wick, were attacked and beaten in their Seattle apartment. Ms. Trumbell died, while Ms. Wick suffered skull fractures, but lived. Bundy lived nearby and worked at the supermarket where the women shopped. Bundy also denied this attack, Keppel said.

Whitman County authorities say they also still consider Bundy a suspect in the 1971 death of Joyce LaPage, 21, of Pasco, a student at Washington State University in Pullman. Bundy denied he killed her, but Keppel urged authorities to keep him on the suspect list.
