Most shocking documentary: 'The Ted Bundy Tapes' or 'Abducted in Plain Sight'?

"Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes" and  "Abducted in Plain Sight" follow men who used their charm, wit, and appearance to manipulate victims. Ted Bundy and Robert Berchtold dispelled the myth that a predator lurks in the shadows waiting to pounce on their victims. The reality is both kidnapped victims in broad daylight, in front of people, and that is what makes their stories so chilling. The main difference between the two is Berchtold was your everyday friendly neighbor and Bundy was an average all America guy. Which story was more shocking?

Bundy got away with committing heinous crimes simply because of the way that he looked. Many would agree he was handsome, fit and well put together, defying the stereotypes of your typical serial killer. In an interview, Bundy revealed the police were too focused on him and should be out looking for other predators who were conspicuously walking the streets. People recounted the conversation:

In trying to explain his motives, Bundy never attributed his brutality to any personal defects. Instead, he pointed the finger at society, and said as police were busying themselves with him, future serial killers were taking shape on the streets.
Like him, many of these killers, he postulated, would exist out in the open, without any sort of suspicion. “People don’t realize that murderers do not come out in the dark with long teeth and saliva dripping off their chin,” he mused.

The most shocking part about "Abducted in Plain Sight" is that the parents of the victim essentially allowed their child to be kidnapped and abused. They were trusting, naive andbecause they were being completely manipulated by Berchtoldthey interfered with the FBI's investigation into their daughter's case. But according to Vulture, the relationship between Berchtold and the parents is more than what meets the eye: 

At first, the documentary leads us to believe that the Brobergs are clueless, trusting souls who never considered the darker motivations Berchtold might possess because their faith and small-town life shielded them from such thoughts. But Abducted in Plain Sight eventually reveals that other things were going on between the Brobergs and Berchtold that clouded matters for them and made them less likely to publicly implicate him or aggressively try to get their daughter back. (I won’t spoil what those things are, apart from saying: Whew, lordy.)
