Meet Crystal Rogers Husband On Instagram: Has She Been Found Yet 2021?
Not U. With a population of only just over 13, according to the census , it is also known for more than its fair share of unsolved mysteries and bizarre cases. There have been questions as to whether the cases are linked, but unfortunately there is no definitive proof one way or the other.
Not because one case is more important than the others, but because there is just more information available. For part 1, click here. They were an original Bardstown family since Tommy was also born and raised there and Crystal the oldest with brother, Casey and sister, Brooke were also born and raised there. Crystal was described as shy, kind, and compassionate. Crystal married Keith Rogers and they had kids together. She was a mom at a young age, but her family agreed that she was made to be a mom.
She was a laid back mom. Crystal Rogers However, Crystal and Keith ended up separating. They never divorced, but they separated and Crystal began dating another man named Brooks Houck. She said if they went grocery shopping, Brooks would buy food for Eli only and anything for the other kids was on Crystal. Brooks came from a wealthy family and owned many properties that he rented out. Brooks Houck One year, Brooks even ran for sheriff in the Democratic primaries.
Friends say that Crystal was actually planning to break up with Brooks in the summer of Brooks said he knew nothing about that. But on July 3rd, , Crystal texted a friend about how excited she was that she and Brooks were going to have a kid-free night and that she got a babysitter. That night, she and Brooks went to his family farm. The next day was July 4th, but no one heard from Crystal all day. Sherry called around, but no one had seen her. Brooks never kept Eli.
It had obviously been abandoned there on the westbound side near mile marker The keys were still in the ignition of her maroon Chevy Impala and the back passenger side tire was low. Casey even said that there was another time that Crystal got a flat on that road and destroyed her rim driving until she got to a safer place to stop. The seat was farther back than usual and the back was almost straight up. Crystal always pretty much laid the seat back.
More disturbing were the personal things that were left inside the car. Not only was her purse and make up left behind, but so was her dead cellphone. Did she just peace out of her life? Did she pull over for a flat and get snatched? Brooks met with the detective and claimed that he and Crystal, with their son Eli, went to the family farm to feed the livestock on July 3rd. Then the little family returned home early in the evening and later went to bed and Crystal played a game on her phone for a bit.
Brooks said that when he woke up the next morning, Crystal was gone. Or if they got in a fight, Crystal would go to one of their houses to cool down. In fact, everyone else said, absolutely not. Sabrina said that Crystal never came to her house to spend the night from a fight. She was only ever there for an hour or 2 depending on the level of the argument.
Brooks was interviewed on July 8th by Detective Snow. This one was recorded. Brooks is quick to explain his statement to the detective. He seems uncomfortable and seems to feel like he has to fill the silences. With every question Snow asks, Brooks seems to have an extended answer that kind of dances around the question.
Snow tried to get a better handle on the type of relationship that Brooks and Crystal had. Brooks also talks about Crystal in the past tense throughout the interview and at one point he asks how her family found the car and who, specifically, in her family found the car.
At one point, the detective asks Brooks to put a number in his phone to see who it belongs to and when they do that, Brooks calls the other man and starts making plans with him for some work he needs the guy to do! In the middle of an interview with a detective! Otherwise, the interview was pretty unhelpful for the first hour and a half. The only interesting thing to happen was when Brooks got a call from his brother at almost exactly 7 pm.
Brooks seems to be getting yelled at by Nick based on the way he is responding. Then, after leaving the station, Brooks and Nick immediately rendezvous at the family farm and spend hours there. The security cameras on the property reveal that they got to the farm together, seemingly coming directly from the police station, and then recorded them leaving together just before pm. Weirdly, neither brother remembers what they did there during those hours and Nick insists that they just happened to end up there at the same time.
Brooks calls into Nancy Grace and it is unfortunate and unhelpful. Nick agrees to meet with the investigators, but not before negotiating the time and date to death for a week!
They pass each other because they are both super busy. Then the officers ask Nick about his cruiser and if he drives that out to the farm. Nick says he drives that all the time because the chief wants them to drive them off duty for a police presence, so yes. When the police department took the car, what was in there? He said that other than all the things he mentioned there was a blanket from moving furniture in the trunk that he had thrown in his trunk to return to the farm.
They point out the difference in the statement that he never met Brooks there. Nick also had trouble remembering his schedule for work and if he was working on the 8th.
One of the officers even points out that this was a week ago and this is a situation that is very unique. He [the officer interviewing Nick] could remember a conversation with his brother from a week ago.
Which he later admits was the last time he was at that farm with his brother. Nick said that had been a long time ago, and he can guarantee that there was no blood or anything in his trunk or even on that blanket. No way.
He left it at home. He does agree to let them copy the contacts and stuff, but whether or not he did so…. They circle back to the fact that his cruiser was taken and searched. Forensics looked at it and used Luminol to look for bodily fluids and blood. Why would that be, Nicky boy? He has no explanation for that even though, during this interview, he was the one that admitted to being the only one in the car and the one that put the blanket in the trunk. You never helped him move a body?
You never helped him get rid of any evidence? The officers ask him about what he thinks happened. So they come at him with their theory: Brooks is a good guy, but something just happened, like finding out that someone else was hitting on or getting with Crystal.
Maybe he confronted her and went too far. When he realized what he had done, he reached out to Nick. Now, maybe Nick has blocked it out because he is ashamed of what he did.
The officer says, religiously means you do it consistently and frequently. Eventually, Nick gets defensive and poses the question, who would do these things with a city issued cruiser? The officers say, what better vehicle? No one is going to question a police car behind a car with a flat tire on the side of the road or a police car driving at all different hours. When he skipped the appointment the FBI contacted him to ask him to come in.
Nick was off duty at the time and flat out refused. So on July 24th, when Nick was back at work and in uniform, he was forced to take it by his boss. They look over the security camera footage from the farm and see that on July 3rd, Crystal and Brooks show up to the farm alone.
Eli is not with them as Brooks previously stated. Not only did the footage show him leaving close to midnight instead of in the early evening like he said, but most importantly, it shows Brooks leaving the farm alone.
Over the following months, nothing new comes up, but search efforts continue. On September 9, , Nick was suspended from the police department for 5 weeks. Chief McCubbin made a statement that he had given Nick a verbal command to cooperate with the lead investigator, and that Nick was impeding and stonewalling the investigation. Sherry was often the one talking to the press while Tommy was leading the search efforts.
During the end of , Tommy and Sherry got wrapped up in a custody battle over Eli because they were worried that Brooks was going to run off with Eli.
Brooks was selling off property for almost nothing, but his lawyer just says that just a day in the life of Brooks. They have thought that Brooks was guilty from the beginning and they file a legal motion to keep him from bolting. In December , a man named Danny Singleton was arrested in reference to this case. Singleton pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 8 months in jail and the rest of this time was spent on parole.
