Boyfriend Charged With Murder In Case Of Mother Of 5 Missing For 8 Years

 It's a tragic and unsettling case that Crystal Rogers, a mother of five from Bardstown, Kentucky, went missing in July 2015 and has never been found. The recent arrest of her ex-boyfriend, Brooks Houck, in connection with her disappearance after eight years is a significant development in the case. Here's a summary of the key details:

  1. Crystal Rogers, a mother of five, disappeared on July 3, 2015, in Bardstown, Kentucky.

  2. Brooks Houck, her ex-boyfriend, has been arrested and charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence in connection with her disappearance. He was taken into custody following recent searches at his properties, including his home, with the assistance of the FBI. Houck is being held on a $10,000,000 bond.

  3. Joseph Lawson, aged 32, was also arrested on September 7 in connection with Crystal Rogers' disappearance. He faces charges of conspiracy to commit murder and tampering with physical evidence.

  4. Crystal Rogers' mother reported her missing in July 2015, and she is presumed dead since she has never been found.

  5. The FBI reported that Crystal's car was discovered with a flat tire in Bardstown on the day she was reported missing, and her keys, phone, and purse were found inside the vehicle. It was unusual for her to go anywhere without her children.

  6. Brooks Houck had been a suspect in Crystal Rogers' killing but had never been charged with the crime until now. Her family has maintained their suspicions of Houck since her disappearance.

  7. Tragically, Crystal Rogers' father, Tommy Ballard, was shot and killed in 2016 while hunting in a field, and his killer has not been found. The arrest of Brooks Houck and the ongoing investigation into Crystal Rogers' disappearance are significant steps toward potentially resolving this long-standing mystery and bringing closure to her family and the Bardstown community.
