True Crimes Cases: October 2018 Discussion

This new and intriguing group will meet once a month to look at what many people are fascinated by, True Crime Cases. Each month we’ll discuss cases that have gripped a nation and try to explain the criminal psychology by using descriptions of police investigations and trial procedures.

Our first meeting will keep it close to home with the disappearance of Crystal Rogers, a mother of 5 from Bardstown, KY. This case inspired a new television series on Oxygen.

Discussion for this case will be on Tuesday, October 23rd at 6pm.

Crystal Rogers Disappearance

Since her disappearance on July 3, 2015, the case of Crystal Rogers has filled her hometown of Bardstown, Kentucky, with emotion and intrigue. The 35-year-old mother of five went missing from the home she shared with her boyfriend and children, and her car was found abandoned two days later on the side of the highway.

When Rogers’ father was fatally shot two years later, it seemed like another plot twist straight out of a Southern Gothic mystery novel. It’s been three years since Rogers’ disappearance, and police are still desperately searching for answers.


Take a look at a timeline provided by Oxygen to gain a better understanding as to the order of known events.
