Regina Kay Walters’ Last Photo

This haunting photo of teenager Regina Kay Walters was taken by her killer just moments before she was brutally murdered. At the age of 14 Walters and her boyfriend, Ricky Lee Jones ran away from their Texas homes and were picked up by a man by the name of Robert Rhoades. What the unsuspecting teens could not know is that Rhodes was a serial killer suspected of murdering more than 50 women.

Ricky Lee Jones was killed quickly, but Rhoades kept Regina, cut her hair, and forced her to wear this dress. He then took her to an abandoned barn and murdered her, but not before taking one final, horrifying photo of his victim. Rhoades was later convicted of Walters’ murder and was sentenced to life without parole.
