American homicide; after binding his wife, Julie, with 37 yards of duct tape, he put her body in the garage and set fire to it, 5/06/1986, 4:15 PM CDT, St. Louis, MO. His plan was to have the house burn down, destroying all evidence. Unfortunately for him, the neighbors saw the beginnings of the fire and called the firemen.
Julie was a shy, retiring girl (born 7/07/1954) who wanted nothing more than a home and family and had happily married Bulloch on 2/22/1986. She had not bargained for the sex-bondage games that he enjoyed. Bulloch had been married before; the first time on 2/14/1982; she left him in 1985. He had a history of beating up women and had been known to put out his cigarettes on his wife's face.
After Julie's death, Bulloch made a show of grief and set up a fake suicide, leaving a distraught note and making the appearance of having jumped off the bridge. In truth, he had disappeared to California, where the police traced him. When he was captured and indicted, he wanted to keep the most gruesome of the photos of Julie's remains for his own viewing pleasure.
At the trial, Bulloch's defense strategy was that he and Julie were both patrons of sex-bondage games and this one had simply gone too far. On 6/03/1987 the jury found him guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter and he was sentenced to four years prison. The law brought secondary charges of arson against Bulloch. At the second trial, 7/13/1988, he was sentenced to an additional 11 years.
He served three years and was released on appeal on 6/18/1990.
