A 35 year old woman named Crystal Rogers went missing from Bardstown, Kentucky back in 2015. Her car was found on the side of a busy parkway with a flat tire, keys, wallet and phone still inside. Just 16 months later, while searching for answers, Crystal’s father is murdered in cold blood. Now, people are wondering if these two crimes are connected to a bigger conspiracy that started with the murder of a police officer in 2013. Could all of these seemingly different attacks be related?
You can watch Brooks’ full interview here.
Watch here if you only want to see the part where Brooks takes a call from his brother.
This is Crystal’s father, Tommy Ballard with his wife. Tommy was shot in the chest while hunting on his property. A lot of people say he had a “hunting accident” but police have ruled is a murder. Shortly before his murder, he said he was being followed and even installed cameras in his truck. The footage from those cameras has never been released.
