BARDSTOWN, Ky. (WTVQ) – The disappearance of Chrystal Rogers more than five years ago in Bardstown and Nelson County is back in the news with the discovery of human remains in a rural part of the county and FBI now taking an active role in the investigation.
With that in mind, the Oxygen television network will re-air a six-part series — “The Disappearance of Crystal Rogers” — on the case from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 15.
The series first aired in 2018.
“The Disappearance of Crystal Rogers” is the third installment of the “Disappearance of…” franchise, following the previous cases of Natalee Holloway and Maura Murray.
In the series, the mysterious circumstances surrounding Crystal Rogers, a mother of five vanishing from Bardstown, Kentucky, spirals into the dissection of multiple unsolved homicides in this heartland community. With Crystal presumed dead and the victim of foul play, the case takes an even odder turn when her father, Tommy Ballard, who was conducting his own 16-month investigation, was killed, leaving a box of clues behind.
This series features Emmy Award-nominated reporter Stephanie Bauer and veteran homicide detective Dwayne Stanton, who has worked on celebrity cases and more than 750 homicide investigations.
“The Disappearance of Crystal Rogers” is produced by Peacock Productions with Alexa Danner, Lloyd Fales, Wendy Greene and Nicole Rittenmeyer serving as executive producers.
