It’s been eight years since Crystal Roger went missing. Her then-boyfriend, Brooks Houck, immediately became the main suspect.
The mom of five was last seen at Houck’s home. Rogers’ car was found abandoned with a flat tire on the Bluegrass Parkway two days later. Her keys, phone, and purse were inside the vehicle. Houck was interviewed, but not arrested.
Houck has been charged with murder and tampering with evidence. The details of why, however, remain sealed until his arraignment.
Houck’s bond has been set at $10 million cash.
This is the second arrest related to Crystal Rogers’ disappearance. 32-year-old Joseph L. Lawson was charged with conspiracy to commit murder and tampering with physical evidence in the case. Lawson has pleaded not guilty. His connection to this case is not yet known, but Lawson’s father worked for Houck.
Rogers’ body has not been found.
