Serial killer Ted Bundy’s DNA profile was uploaded to the FBI’s DNA data base on Friday, opening the way for police investigators around the country to see if Bundy was responsible for any other murders, the New York Times reported.

Bundy, who was executed in Florida in 1989, confessed to 30 murders, but hinted there were more, the Times reported.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement assembled a complete profile of Bundy recently after extracting DNA from a vial that had been stored in the court house for three decades, the Times reported. Up until now, no complete DNA profile had been available.

David Coffman, chief of forensics at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, said his department began searching for enough DNA to create a profile after being contacted by the police in Tacoma, Wash., this year, the Times reported.

Authorities in Tacoma are hoping to solve the case of Ann Marie Burr, an 8-year-old girl who disappeared from her house in 1961, Times reported. Bundy was 14 at the time.

Coffman told the Times he receives four or five calls a year from investigators inquiring about Bundy’s DNA in connection with unsolved cases.
