Witnesses say 55-year-old Kevin Jordan was watching porn on his cell phone while walking along a sidewalk in Memphis, Tennessee, when a 15-foot runaway trailer hauling tires came unhitched, hitting and killing Jordan instantly.

Jordan has a lengthy criminal history, including five separate rape charges, for which he served time in the early 90's.

He was released early for good behavior.

Although Jordan was arrested just last year for indecent exposure, his fiancee, Connie Harris, told WMC-TV that he had turned his life around and did not deserve to die this way.

"He had his life in order," Harris said. "It's a big loss. I love him. I still love him."

Witnesses say the driver of the 2008 Dodge Ram who was hauling the trailer hit a bump in the road when the trailer came unhitched.

So far, he has not been cited.

The case is still under investigation.
