MEMPHIS, TN. — A convicted rapist was reportedly hit and killed in a freak accident when a trailer came loose in Memphis this week, and according to witnesses the man was allegedly watching pornography on his cellphone at the time.

WMC Action News 5 reports Kevin Jordan was hit and killed Wednesday around 5 p.m. after a 15-foot trailer loaded with tires become unhitched from a pickup truck and slammed into him as he walked on the sidewalk.

Witnesses said the man was watching porn on his phone when he was killed. Jordan, who lives near the scene of the accident, is listed in court records as a violent sex offender. The man was previously sentenced to serve 25 years in prison after he was convicted for several rapes, but he was released a few years ago for good behavior.

The man’s fiancée said Jordan had turned his life around since being released.

“He had his life in order,” Connie Harris told WMC Action News 5.

Court records indicate Jordan was arrested last year for indecent exposure, but Harris claims in that case Jordan was urinating and not exposing himself.

The driver of the vehicle has not been cited, but the case remains under investigation. Click here for more on this story from WMC Action News 5.

    “He had his life in order” his girl friend, Connie Harris, said. Obviously why he was watching porn. The women he raped won’t miss his passing and his girl friend, the virgin Connie, will be free to find another love interest.

      It is one thing to file charges and another thing to get a jury to find the driver guilty. What is the penalty for sending a sexual deviate and rapist to hell ….. by accident?

      By-the-way Lost …. would you have as much sympathy for this rapist if it had been a dog instead of women that he raped?

    Sounds like the driver should be cited and given an award at the same time. Also, who watches porn while you’re walking down the sidewalk?? This also serves as a reminder to the teeny bobbers that like to text and walk that paying attention to your surroundings may save your life one day.
