    Ronnie Kray's mugshot from the late 1940s

    This picture of 14-year-old Regina Kay Walters was taken by serial killer Robert Ben Rhoades, who toured the country in an 18-wheeler equipped with a torture chamber in the back. Rhoades abducted Walters and her boyfriend, Ricky Lee Jones, who ran away together in Texas. This photo was taken in an abandoned Illinois barn, where Rhoades killed Walters after cutting off her hair and making her wear a black dress and heels. Jones’s body was never found.
