Crystal Marie Rogers grew up in Bardstown and was the mother of five children. According to those who knew her, Crystal loved being a mother and was a caring person who would help friends when they were in need.
On July 5, 2015, Crystal’s mother reported her missing after Crystal had not been seen or heard from since the evening of July 3, 2015. The same day Crystal was reported missing, her car was found abandoned with a flat tire at mile marker 14 on the Bluegrass Parkway. Crystal’s keys, phone, and purse were still inside her red Chevrolet Impala. Sadly, while most families were enjoying the Fourth of July celebrations over that weekend, Crystal’s family was instead left wondering as to her whereabouts.
