Trucker is “not a monster but did what he did,” in murder case involving model 


A truck driver has pleaded guilty to homicide charges in a case involving the murder of a former model in Pennsylvania. 

The murder of Rebecca Landrith was committed in February of 2021. As of Wednesday, September 14th, trucker Tracy Ray Rollins Jr. has pleaded guilty to third-degree homicide and 20 counts of abuse of a corpse as part of a deal. Each bullet is being considered as a separate count, reported The Daily Item.

Rollins was responsible for fatally shooting Rebecca Landrith, 47, of Virginia, inside the tractor-trailer he drove, firing 20 more shots into her body after she was deceased, and dumping her off of Interstate 80 at the Mile Run exit in Buffalo Township. 

When Union County President Judge Michael H. Sholley asked Rollins if he committed the crimes laid out against him in Wednesday’s court appearance, Rollins responded “yes.”

“He’s not a monster but he did what he did,” said Rollins’ Defense Attorney Brian Ulmer.

Rollins is now awaiting sentencing.
