Early on a Saturday morning, a young woman drove to her parking space in downtown Winston-Salem, got out of her car, and crossed the street to go into the Integon Office Building to work. Before she could step through the door, she was accosted, a gun was shoved into her side, and she was forced back into her car. What happened next was an atrocity that has haunted her, and perplexed investigators and the people of Winston-Salem for over twenty years. She became known as The Integon Victim of Winston-Salem.
Now, finally, the public will know the entire story and the intimate details of her kidnapping, rape, assault, stabbing, and near death as she fought her attacker, and later, helped bring him to justice. At the same time, she provided evidence to exonerate Darryl Hunt for the murder of Deborah Sykes, and finally set him free from prison and set herself free from the past.
Regina Lane lives life close to her family, where she and Scott, her husband of 26 years, have raised their sons Michael and Stephen. They are blessed with two beautiful daughters-in-law, Samantha and Whitney.
Regina still works in the PMI insurance industry with many of her friends from 27 years ago. She considers this a testimony of God’s work in her life as she prayed and believed that God would do something awesome.
Regina desires to be an encouragement and inspiration to those around her as she continues to share her testimony at various group meetings around the Triad. She sang with the Faith Harmony Quartet since 1999 and sings with Grace Harmony and Sounds of Grace musical groups, extensions of her home church, Grace Baptist Temple.
Her 2006 interview can be seen on HBO’s The Trials of Darryl Hunt, where her story is a special featurette. She was a guest of WUNC Radio on the State of Things. Most recently, she was interviewed with Cineflix for Discovery Channel’s Cold Blood 4 for 2012.
