The report states that the victim’s granddaughter was in her room when she heard the door bell go off several times. She told police that she looked outside and didn’t see anyone so she opened the door. At that point she said Rogers forced her out of the way and entered the house. The granddaughter told police that she believed Rogers was high on methamphetamine, as he began scavenging about the house piling items up in the floor that she presumed he intended to take.
The granddaughter told police that she talked Rogers out of the house and believed he had left. The report states the granddaughter then began hearing sounds coming from the back yard. The report states that she looked in the back yard and found Rogers piling more items up to steal.
