FBI Louisville Releases New Details Concerning Unidentified Human Remains

LOUISVILLE, KY—The FBI has concluded that the human remains found on Friday, July 24th, near the border of Nelson and Washington Counties are not Crystal Rogers. Over the last few months, the FBI has utilized the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) in an attempt to identify the remains. Unfortunately, a match was not found. The Nelson County Sheriff’s Office will continue to be the lead on the investigation of the unidentified remains and the FBI will be available to assist if needed. The FBI and our law enforcement partners understand that many in the community were hopeful that these remains would bring answers to the Crystal Rogers case. This latest development most certainly does not affect the unwavering resolve of the FBI personnel assigned to investigate the disappearance of Crystal Rogers. Bringing justice to the community of Bardstown remains a top priority of FBI Louisville.
