Hitchhikers Vanished Along Rural Highway. 18 Months Later Police Finally Reveal the Truth 

Rhoades’ conviction

Authorities estimate that Rhoades abducted and tortured an average of three women a week before Officer Miller stumbled upon his truck on that early morning of April 1, 1990. In 1994, he was finally convicted of the first-degree murder of Regina Kay Walters. He was put behind bars without parole at the Menard Correctional Center in Chester, Illinois. In 2005, he was extradited to Utah for the trial of Candace Walsh’s and Douglas Zyskowski’s murders. He was to receive the death penalty. However, in a plea deal where he pled guilty to the deaths of the couple, he received a life sentence in Texas instead.
