This is so upsetting.
Over the weekend, former Bridalplasty contestant Lisa Marie Naegle went missing after a night out in Torrance, California. Her family reported the 36-year-old nurse’s disappearance after she had gone to a bar with nursing student Jackie Jerome Rogers but never returned home.
The E! alum’s family confronted Jackie on Monday night, and sources tell TMZ he claimed he had left Ms. Naegle at the bar. However, security footage showed Lisa Marie getting into his car after leaving the establishment.
So, after catching him in his lie, the family detained Mr. Rogers and called the cops.
After he was arrested by LAPD, Jackie confessed to killing her and burying the body in his backyard. He told police they had been dating, but apparently Ms. Naegle had declared that night she was breaking up with him so she could get back together with her husband.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that the LA County Coroner found her body at his home, determining she had been killed after being hit in the head with a hammer seven times.
Jackie is scheduled to be booked for murder sometime late Tuesday.
Lisa Marie had appeared on the E! reality competition back in 2010. Our hearts are with her loved ones and everyone affected during this difficult time.
