Robert Ben Rhoades was a trucker whose big rig was equipped with a traveling torture chamber. He picked up prostitutes, hitchhikers and runaways, then chained them up, raped them, torture them, and even kill them. At home, he had a wife, Debra. He made her hand over her earnings to him, and forced her to go to swingers’ clubs and watch as he had sex with other women.
Serial killer Robert Ben Rhoades kidnapped and tortured his victims inside a chamber set up inside his big rig truck.
From the outside, the big rig truck looked like any other. But inside the rig was an elaborate setup Robert Ben Rhoades had created explicitly for the purpose of torturing women – often to death.
