Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Abody found Tues­day in a back­yard is be­lieved to be that of a for­mer real­ity TV show con­tes­tant who van­ished over the week­end af­ter at­tend­ing a birth­day party at a Cal­i­for­nia beer hall. Po­lice and coro­ner's of­fi­cials searched at a home in un­in­cor­po­rated Len­nox, near Los Angeles In­ter­na­tional Air­port, af­ter an ac­quain­tance of Lisa Marie Nae­gle was ar­rested and in­di­cated her body was there, po­lice said. "We can con­firm a body which we be­lieve is Lisa Marie was dis­cov­ered in a shal­low grave at the sus­pect's home," po­lice spokesman Sal Ramirez said Tues­day night. "The de­tec­tives strongly be­lieve it is her." A mo­tive for and cause of her death were not im­me­di­ately dis­closed.

Jackie Jerome Rogers, 34, was ar­rested Tues­day on sus­pi­cion of mur­der af­ter be­ing ques­tioned about her dis­ap­pear­ance. It wasn't im­me­di­ately clear whether he had a lawyer. Nae­gle, 36, a nurse who lived in the San Pe­dro area of Los Angeles, was a los­ing con­tes­tant on the show "Bri­dalplasty" in 2010. She com­peted for a dream wed­ding and plas­tic surgery. She taught nurs­ing classes at West Los Angeles Col­lege, and Rogers was one of her stu­dents, ac­cord­ing to the Daily Breeze of Tor­rance. Nae­gle had gone to a birth­day party on Satur­day night at Alpine Vil­lage, a beer hall and restau­rant in Tor­rance.

Nae­gle's hus­band, Derek Har­ry­man, said he texted her around 2 am Sun­day to see where she was. "Within a minute or two, she called me," Har­ry­man told the Daily Breeze. "She sounded re­ally, re­ally drunk. She said, 'I'm go­ing to get some food and then I'll be home.' "She never ar­rived and didn't show up to teach. Har­ry­man and Nae­gle's sis­ter filed a miss­ing per­son's re­port and asked for help on so­cial me­dia in find­ing her. The fam­ily said they ob­tained pho­tos show­ing Nae­gle leav­ing the beer hall with Rogers and video that showed her get­ting into his sport util­ity ve­hi­cle. "We went and we looked at the film and she left with him," her brother, Rafael Chavez, told the news­pa­per.

"He told every­body he left with­out her." "We begged and pleaded that he'd come to our home to kind of give us de­tails on what time, where were things, and when he left her, but while he was talk­ing to us and telling us his story, mul­ti­ple dif­fer­ent times he said he ab­so­lutely did not go home with her, or did not take her home," Nae­gle's sis­ter, Danielle Nae­gle-Kai­mona, told KABC-TV. Af­ter be­ing con­fronted with in­for­ma­tion that Nae­gle was seen get­ting into his car, Rogers al­tered his story to say that Nae­gle had got­ten into his car but then got out mo­ments later, the fam­ily said. They then con­tacted po­lice. — AP
