Truck Driver is Alleged Serial Killer With Five Bodies and Counting

by Jana Ritter - Published: 10/14/2015

The majority of truck drivers are among the hardest working demographic of individuals that the entire nation depends on for everyday life. But, there are always a few bad eggs in every basket and in this case, one truck driver is accused of being the most rotten type of egg there is. According to Ohio Cuyahoga County Prosecutors, truck driver Robert Rembert is a full-blown serial killer and so far they have five bodies to prove it. And, they also believe it may only be the beginning of what they find in his potentially long road of killings.

In fact, Rembert had already been convicted and spent six years in prison for the one of those deaths. In 1997, he was charged with the voluntary manslaughter of Dadren Lewis that occurred in a Cleveland parking lot. After serving he time, he resumed his life in Ohio and eventually started working as a truck driver. However, on Tuesday he was faced with new charges far worse than his criminal past. A grand jury indicted him on 25 counts tied to four more victims, with three of the killings occurring just this past year, another occurring in 1997 and a string of evidence tying him to all.  What led to his recent arrest started on June 10, when the body of 31-year-old Kimberly Hall was discovered in an open field near Cleveland. According to prosecutors, Hall had been beaten, raped and strangled to her death and DNA found on her body was later tied to Rembert.  Not to mention that investigators were also able to trace the last calls on Hall’s phone back to Rembert's number.

But it wasn't until ten days later, that two more bodies were found and were immediately linked to Rembert.  26-year-old Morgan Nietzel and 52-year-old Jerry Rembert (who was Robert Rembert’s cousin) were both found shot dead in the very home they shared with him. It was that discovery that issued a warrant for Rembert’s arrest and authorities tracked him down a day later after he had taken a shower at a Pilot Flying J truck stop 40 miles south of Cleveland and had been driving Neitzel’s red Saturn. Once he was in custody, authorities were able to link him to Hall's murder and he has since been held on $1 million bond as the grand jury looked into the other cases. One includes another violent death of a woman named Rena May Payne, who was found strangled and beaten in a Cleveland Regional Transit Authority employee rest room in 1997. Rembert had worked at the RTA at that time and allegedly would have had the bathroom code only known to RTA employees. Prosecutors say that DNA from Payne’s body has also been matched to Rembert. 

After Tuesday's indictment, Rembert is expected to be arraigned Friday on 25 charges. 10 counts of Aggravated Murder, 6 counts of Kidnapping, 4 counts of Rape, 2 counts of Aggravated Robbery and one count each of Having Weapons under Disability, Grand Theft and Gross Abuse of a Corpse. Investigators are also looking into Rembert's truck driving routes that had him traveling all over Ohio and into Pennsylvania and possibly into other states in the Great Lakes area.  "So far, we know Robert Rembert purposefully executed five people,” said Prosecutor Timothy McGinty. "An investigation of his activities as an over-the-road truck driver is currently underway," McGinty added.
