A convicted serial rapist in Memphis, Tennessee, 55-year-old Kevin Jordan, was walking on a side-walk while watching porn on his cell phone when he got hit by a runaway trailer which smashed into a fence and struck him. A man who witnessed the accident last Wednesday around 5 p.m. said police told them that Jordan was looking at porn on his phone when he was hit. He added that Jordan was killed just a few houses down from where he lived.
According to authorities, Jordan was a known sexual offender in the early 1990s. He was known as the ‘Highland Street Rapist’ in Memphis and was sentenced to 25 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to 20 felonies in 1994, which included nine counts of rape, one attempted rape, as well as four robberies and three burglaries. He had raped four women after breaking into their homes, two in 1991 and two in 1992, while he was out on parole after being convicted of a similar rape and burglary conviction. He was released from prison in 2010 for good behavior.
His fiancée, Connie Harris said that he turned his life around since he was convicted of the rapes and released from prison. But according to New York Daily News, court records show he was arrested for indecent exposure last year. A woman who did not want to be identified said she called police when she saw Jordan expose himself while wearing a trench coat. She said when she looked out her office window, he started masturbating to her– but ran away when she called police.
However, Harris defended her fiancé after the accusation was made, stating that Jordan recently had a kidney transplant and was near the woman's office because he was on dialysis. She said Jordan was urinating, not exposing himself. Harris said despite Jordan's past, he was a changed and good person and did not deserve to die the way he did. “It’s a big loss. I love him. I still love him,” Harris said.
The Police are still investigating the accident. The driver pulling the trailer has not been charged.
