New identity of serial killer revealed

The first pictures of a serial killer who served 24 years jail for beating her fiancee to death while on parole for two other killings have emerged on social media.

The first picture of convicted murderer Reginald “Tex” Arthurell has been discovered on social media, after the serial killer was released on parole last year.

A parole hearing in late 2020 heard Arthurell, who once styled herself as a cowboy, now identifies as a transgender woman and planned to undergo a sex change as soon as possible.

She now goes by the name Regina Kaye.

Kaye was sentenced to a maximum of 27 years after she killed Venet Mulhall, 54, in the NSW country town of Coonabarabran while on parole for two other killings. She later took a photo of himself in her dress and wearing a wig.

Sydney radio station 2GB first reported the new pictures had surfaced. A social media account under the name Regina Kaye matches the photos.

The NSW State Parole Authority (SPA) granted Kaye parole in October.

“An offender with seven months left to serve on a 24-year sentence has been granted parole, providing a safety net of strict supervision, electronic monitoring with schedules and stringent conditions,” the SPA said in a statement.

Conditions of the parole include electronic monitoring, abstaining from alcohol, participating in an intervention program as directed, not possessing or using a firearm or any prohibited weapon, not contacting, communicating with, watching, stalking, harassing or intimidating the victim/s and/or victims’ families.

“The SPA determined release to parole at this time is in the best interests of the safety of the community and ordered the offender comply with 11 standard conditions of parole in addition to electronic monitoring with schedules and ongoing engagement with psychological treatment and interventions while in the community,” the statement continued.

In October, The Daily Telegraph reported the 75-year old had told authorities she wanted to have a sex change as soon as possible upon her release.

Kaye bludgeoned fiancee Ms Mulhall to death in 1997.

She had moved in with Ms Mulhall after he was released on parole in 1991.

Ms Mulhall had become Kaye’s pen pal while she’d been serving time in a Darwin prison.
