  • Details of Disappearance
    Rodgers was last seen at approximately 6:00 p.m. on November 21, 2002 at her residence in the vicinity of the 1200 block of Jacks Creek Road in King William, Virginia. She has never been heard from again.

    Her disappearance may be tied to another unsolved case in the same neighborhood. A month before Rodgers went missing, 78-year-old Bessie Williams was found stabbed to death in her home, also on Jack's Creek Road. Williams and Rodgers lived across the street from each other. Williams was discovered by neighbors who came to check on her after noticing she had not picked up her Sunday newspaper. At the time, robbery was considered a possible motive.
