Serial killer stories are quite fascinating, and there are tons of them.
From Robert Durst to the Iceman Killer, evert tale is unique and grips you from start to finish.
However, if you’re looking for something different but equally gripping, look no further than the life and crimes of the truck stop murdered, Robert Ben Rhoades.
According to multiple reports, this person was responsible for killing more than fifty women while driving.
A State trooper from Arizona’s Highway Patrolling division saw a massive tractor-trailer racing down the highway.
Its speed was unusually high, which led the Patrol trooper to approach it. He reached the vehicle on time and asked the driver to step out of his truck. Initially, he was quite hesitant and refused to open the door.
However, he stepped outside after the officer insisted. The Patrol officer was not expecting what he saw inside the trailer. It was something right out of a horror film.
There was a chained up young woman inside the truck. She wasn’t wearing any clothes and had a gag tied to her mouth.
The driver, Robert Ben Rhoades, stated that it was a consensual and private matter and that there was no need for alarm.
Fortunately, it wasn’t convincing enough for the trooper as he arrested Rhoades immediately.
After putting on the handcuffs, the officer called for backup. While he was waiting, he spotted an automatic pistol in the truck.
Initially, the judge charged Robert Ben Rhoades with assault and kidnapping charges.
However, authorities later discovered that this person was much worse and was undoubtedly the most dangerous serial killer and s*x offender in American History.
