Full timeline

The documents provide a timeline of the investigation as it relates to the Houcks. Combined with what WAVE 3 News previously uncovered, this is the timeline in full:

July 3: Crystal Rogers is last seen by Brooks Houck

July 5: Rogers' car is found abandoned on the Bluegrass Parkway with a flat tire, and she is officially reported missing

July 8: Brooks Houck is interviewed by the Nelson County Sheriff's Office (NCSO), during which his brother calls him and allegedly tells him not to talk to the detective.

July 9: Nick Houck testified in front a grand jury, leading investigators to suspect his involvement in  the case. His police cruiser is confiscated and searched. The lead detective in the missing person case calls Houck and asks him to come in for an interview, which he refuses, saying "I have nothing to tell you."

July 10: Chief McCubbin speaks with Nick, telling him to fully cooperate and meet with the detective. Houck again refuses, saying if he "knew anything he would have already told him."

July 15: Nick is interviewed by Kentucky State Police and discusses when he can take a polygraph test in the coming days. Nick suggests Monday, July 20.

July 20: The FBI calls Nick asking him to come in for a polygraph, at which time he refuses because he is off duty.

July 24: Houck is on duty when the FBI again asks him to take a polygraph test. He agrees. The polygraph examiner then called Chief McCubbin to express his "grave concerns" with the results.

Sept 9: Nick is suspended from BPD

Oct 14: Nick signs an affidavit saying he told Brooks to fully cooperate with NCSO detectives

Oct 15: A hearing is held in the mayor's office to discuss Nick's possible termination

Oct 16: Nick is fired and Brooks is named a suspect

Wonder what the holdup was between July and Sept when he was suspended?  Appears slow to me to take any action. Maybe because he was one of them?

Chief takes to social media to explain procedure

BARDSTOWN, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Bardstown Chief of Police is taking to Facebook and making a statement about a police officer who was fired after being involved in a missing persons case.

About a month ago, Nick Houck was fired from the police force after telling his brother, Brooks Houck, he was going to be interviewed by police. Brooks is the live-in boyfriend of Crystal Rogers, who has been missing since July.

The chief on Facebook Sunday, not only made a statement, but used the moment to educate the community, calling it, “a quick lesson in criminal procedure 101” after the folks were calling for charges against Nick Houck.

Full statement from the chief:
“Many of you have asked, sent emails, and stopped me on the street to ask why our former officer isn’t charged with a crime. Good question but allow me to teach a quick lesson in Criminal Procedure 101. First, at this point, this is a Missing Person case (legally speaking) being investigated by the NCSO. A Missing Person case is NOT a criminal case. What our former officer did during the interview was NOT acceptable ONLY because he was an officer. He did NOT give a “heads-up” and prevent his brother from questioning. That is all false rumor stuff. You saw the interview, obviously he stopped nothing. Secondly, a person cannot be charged with a crime when there is not a criminal case, if it becomes a criminal case then perhaps, but under our laws there is nothing at this point. And yes, the NCSO and I have both consulted with prosecutors. Regularly. Our former officer was fired only on administrative charges, not criminal charges. His actions were not acceptable for that of a police officer.

Parents of missing Bardstown mother seeking full custody of her youngest son

Posted: Oct 28, 2015 6:00 PM EST
Updated: Oct 28, 2015 6:09 PM EST

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -

In downtown Bardstown, it's hard to miss the signs about Crystal Rogers.

The mother of five disappeared in early July. Her car was found abandoned on the Bluegrass Parkway with her purse and phone still inside. The Nelson County Sheriff's Office says Rogers is likely dead.

Her longtime boyfriend Brooks Houck was named as the only suspect less than two weeks ago, but he has not been charged.

"I just think if he's a suspect in that, if they think that he did that to my daughter? Is Eli in danger?" Rogers' mother Sherry Ballard said. "We can't help but think that way."

Crystal Rogers parents, Tommy and Sherry Ballard, are taking care of four of their daughter's kids, but 3-year-old Eli is with Houck.

"We haven't seen him, his sisters and brothers haven't seen him and it's just hard to sit and wait that long," Ballard said. 

They went to court to ask for visitation in September.

"We are still waiting for that judge to make the decision," Ballard said.

Rogers parents say even though the judge still hasn't decided, they now plan to take things a step further and ask for full custody.

"We would have taken visitation ya know, in the beginning, we just wanted to see that baby -- just to let  him know we're here and we haven't forgotten him," Ballard said. "But yes ma'am, we are seeking full custody."

FBI joins lake searches for Crystal Rogers

6:57 p.m. EST November 18, 2015

LEBANON, KY -- The FBI joined the search efforts for missing Bardstown mother of five Crystal Rogers. Today was the first day the FBI has been out on the water searching for Rogers, although they have been part of the investigation into her disappearance for a while.

The Nelson County sheriff's office said 12 FBI agents were there for the search including a dive team from Florida. They used sonar to search two Marion County Lakes for any clues to Rogers' disappearance. Rogers has been missing since July 3, and her former boyfriend, Brooks Houck, has been named as the main suspect in her disappearance.

The search team started the day at Sportsman Lake in Marion County around 8:30 a.m., then moved to Fagan Branch Lake just up the road this afternoon. They had to halt the search on the second lake due to heavy rain conditions.
 

"We are searching this body of water because there was an interest with some canines and we are following up on it," said Ramon Pineiroa, Asst. Sheriff Nelson County Sheriff's Office.

New Year Brings New Hope For Bardstown Family

As many are getting ready to ring in the new year, one Bardstown family is looking back on 2015 and the heartache they continue to live with as they search for their missing daughter.

It was one of the best Christmas presents Tommy and Sherry Ballard could get after their daughter, Crystal Rogers, vanished without a trace in July.

A judge's order allowed them time with their three year-old grandson they hadn't seen in almost six months.

"We got on the floor and played with him and it was like he never left really," said Sherry Ballard, Crystal's mother.
 
While Crystal's parents say with the new year they have new hope they'll find their daughter, there's isn't a day that goes by they don't think about her.

They even have signs posted outside their home to keep her memory alive in the community

"I won't quit until I find her," said Tommy. "I've said it from day one, who ever done it I'm not stopping until I find her."

In the meantime help is pouring in from as far as Florida to help bring Crystal home.

"The people who have the dogs in Florida are coming back up from Florida on Saturday," Tommy said. "We're going to spend two weeks searching."

A search they hope will help get them closer to finding crystal.

Filed motion questions Houck’s flight risk

The parents of Crystal Rogers, a missing Bardstown woman, were recently granted visitation of Rogers’ son after nearly six months of limited to no contact with the toddler. But motions submitted by attorney Chad McCoy in the case regarding visitation question whether or not the boy’s father might be a flight risk.

The documents filed in the Nelson Circuit Court Dec. 28 include a motion for hearing on visitation and an order preventing Brooks Houck from leaving the state with his son, Eli.

Houck had not allowed Rogers’ family to have contact with the child since July, when Rogers was reported missing.

The motion alleged that since the last court hearing in September, the Ballards learned that Houck’s sister, who was reportedly providing child care for Eli, “has moved out of state and is no longer involved in the child’s life.”
 
   The motion further claims that Brooks Houck has been “attempting to sell all of his real estate holdings below market value” and that “based upon these indicia, it appears that Respondent is preparing to flee the state with the child.”

Additionally, a motion was filed for an order to compel Houck to identify which phone numbers he has used since July 3, 2015, who the carrier for those phones is, and any other relevant information after he reportedly admitted under oath to having multiple phone numbers and accounts. The motion claims that Houck attempted to use text and phone messages from various accounts against the Ballards.

Parents of Crystal Rogers file motion to keep boyfriend from leaving state
Man recently named as suspect in woman's disappearance


UPDATED 11:25 PM EST Jan 04, 2016



BARDSTOWN, Ky. —The parents of Crystal Rogers worry her boyfriend will flee the state with their grandson.
That is why Tommy and Sherry Ballard filed a motion asking a judge to order Brooks Houck to stay in Kentucky.

Houck was recently named a suspect in Rogers' disappearance but as of right now, he still has custody of the pair's 3-year-old son.

The Ballards told WLKY they have worried for some time about their youngest grandson.

But in court documents, they outline specific concerns that the boy's father could leave Kentucky with him.

"It kind of just makes us leery so we are trying to make it to where he cannot leave town," said Sherry Ballard.

Since Rogers' disappearance in early July, her mother has focused on two things.

She wants to find out what happened to her daughter and continue looking after Rogers' five children.

The four oldest children live with the Ballards. But the youngest is with his father Houck.
 
"There is a slight risk that they are scared that Brooks may try to leave town. We are trying to avoid that where he has to stay here and not leave town at all," said Ballard.

The Ballards are also seeking more time with their grandson.

Right now, they visit him every other Saturday. But they said his siblings can't see him.

"I keep telling them it is coming. It is coming. It is coming and it keeps getting, you know, they are just kind of giving up on seeing him. They are like are we ever going to get to see him or not," said Ballard.

A judge will hear the newest motion on Wednesday.

Man accused of lying to grand jury in Crystal Rogers case appears in court

Posted: Jan 07, 2016 7:26 AM EST
Updated: Jan 07, 2016 12:42 PM EST

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The man accused of perjury in the disappearance of a Nelson County woman was in court Thursday.

Police say Danny Singleton lied to a grand jury when he testified about Crystal Rogers' disappearance. Singleton appeared before a judge this morning, where a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.

Rogers' family says they're glad Singleton is in jail, and hope he provides information that leads to answers in her disappearance.

Singleton was given a public defender, who may not be his actual attorney in the long run. The attorney said she may have a conflict of interest, that she plans to disclose to the judge and the Commonwealth's Attorney.

Singleton worked for Brooks Houck, Rogers' longtime boyfriend and the only suspect in her disappearance last summer.

He was indicted in December on 38 counts of perjury.

Rogers' parents believe that Singleton has information in the case; they also say Crystal knew Singleton, and would sometimes give him rides home from work.

"I say if anybody knows something it would be him," said Rogers' father, Tommy Ballard. "He's worked for him for a long time. I feel like that's the only person he would trust."


"I hope he stays in jail," said Rogers' mother, Sherry Ballard. "I hope if he knows anything he comes forward and tells us that he does."

The public defender asked that Singleton's bond of $200,000 be lowered, but the Commonwealth objected, saying he is a flight risk.

“Bring Them Home” searches for Crystal Rogers

Michaela MacDonald, @WHAS11Michaela 6:47 p.m. EST January 11, 2016

BLOOMFIELD, Ky. (WHAS11) -- From the warmest days of the summer, to one of the coldest days of the winter, the search for missing Bardstown mother Crystal Rogers is still going strong. Besides Rogers' family, some of the most dedicated searchers are from the Florida non-profit "Bring Them Home."

"She needs to be found she needs to come home," Tammy Finci, with Bring Them Home, said.

"Bring Them Home" is an organization dedicated to helping families find their missing loved ones. They say they also frequently work with law enforcement. They let us put a camera on Duke to see what he sees during the search.

On Jan. 11, the group searched a property in Bloomfield. Sunday, they searched in Boston. Both days they were battling the bitter cold, but with a shared hope of finding Rogers.

"We have built a very strong bond with them. When we are out searching we feel like we are searching for our own daughter and that's why we keep coming back because they have become our family and they need help," Finci said.

"If we didn't have them we couldn't do what we are doing," Tommy Ballard, Rogers’ father, said.

"We feel like they are giving us a little bit of hope," Sherry Ballard, Rogers’ mother, said.

Lead suspect in Crystal Rogers disappearance appears in court

Posted: Jan 06, 2016 6:09 PM EST
Updated: Jan 06, 2016 10:19 PM EST


NELSON COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – The lead suspect in the case of Crystal Rogers' disappearance stood before a judge Wednesday.
 
Brooks Houck, Crystal Rogers' boyfriend and father of her youngest child, appeared in court to respond to three motions filed by Rogers' parents.

On July 6, 2015, Rogers was reported missing. Brooks Houck is the last known person to have seen her on July 3, 2015.
 
In December, both grandparents gained visitation rights through the court. However, this would only allow for Tommy and Sherry to visit Eli for four hours, excluding any other family members.
 
On Dec. 28, 2015 the Ballards filed three motions; 1. Seeking Brooks Houck's phone records, including all phone numbers and carriers he has used since July 3. 2. Changes to their petition to include non-custodial parental visitation. 3. A court order that would prevent Houck from leaving the state with the child until a further order from the court.
 
The Ballards believe Houck is preparing to leave Kentucky and have made claims that he is attempting to sell all of his real estate holdings below market value.

This allegation was denied by Houck's attorney, Philip George.
 
"We're not going anywhere, we have no plans to go anywhere," George said. "There is no reason for anyone to be alarmed."
 
However, George didn't deny that Houck is selling property, because he is in the real estate business as a source of income, according to George.
 
The Ballards do not believe George.

"What he is selling is about $12,000 under the price of what he could sell them for if he put them on the market," Tommy Ballard said.
 
"I can't speak about before, but from the time he's been with my daughter, I've not known him to sell real estate property, I've only known him to buy real estate property, so this is unusual," Sherry Ballard said.

 
The Ballards admit it's difficult to be around Houck, because he is the lead suspect in their daughter's disappearance.
 
"I've specifically told him ‘I think you did something to my daughter,’" Sherry Ballard said. "I made that very clear."
