BIRTH: November 9, 1965
DEATH: August 26, 1980
Ronda, 14, was a ninth grade student at Atkins High School in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. She attended school on Tuesday, rode the bus home to a friend’s house, and she and the friend walked back to her house so that Ronda could change clothes. The two girls started walking back towards the friends house and were picked up by a young man driving a blue Chevrolet pickup truck with a white camper. The driver then dropped the friend off at her Rural Hall, North Carolina home. Ronda was never seen alive again. Her body was found about 50 feet off a private road off Secrest Road near the Surry-Stokes County line three days later. She had been stabbed multiple times in the chest and abdomen.
The police said that she was partially clothed but couldn’t say if she had been sexually assaulted. She didn’t appear to be beaten, just stabbed to death.
Her murder still remains unsolved.
