FBI continues Crystal Rogers search in Bardstown Saturday

The FBI's offsite collection point is in Dean Watts Park across the street from the Woodlawn Springs subdivision.

BARDSTOWN, Ky. — FBI special agents and forensic evidence experts were back on the ground in Bardstown on Saturday, continuing the search for clues leading to Crystal Rogers.

The focus was on Dean Watt's Park and the materials dumped there after being unearthed during last week's search efforts.

Federal agents searched the one property for seven days, bringing in a cadaver dog, heavy machinery and digging up the driveway and front yard.

The FBI searched every day from Aug. 24-30, reporting investigators found "multiple items of interest" believed to be relevant to the Rogers' case.

Officials first reported an "item of interest" in their search Aug. 27, saying the item would be further evaluated. On Aug. 30, they announced more items had been discovered. Those items are being sent to the FBI laboratory in Quantico, Virginia for forensic analysis.
