In early 2019, Carol DaRonch sat down for an interview with People and recounted her near-death experience at the hands of Bundy. Now in her 60s, DaRonch told the publication that though she had survived a horrible ordeal, she didn’t let it stop her from continuing with her life. Nineteen at the time of Bundy’s attack, DaRonch insisted that her life went on afterward and wasn’t impeded by her assault. And aside from taking time out to aid in his prosecution and sentencing at several trials, DaRonch was able to live a life that was largely unaffected by her encounter with Bundy.
DaRonch told People that aside from one incident where she was approached by someone selling magazines in a store parking lot shortly after her kidnapping, she had no lingering terror regarding Bundy and never suffered nightmares stemming from the incident. The experience did leave DaRonch more conscientious about strangers, however, and she admits that it also has caused her to pay better attention to her surroundings. But, as DaRonch explained to People, “I was able to detach myself from an event that could have ruined my life. It may not be a reasonable solution for everyone, but it is how I have been able to move on.”
