Rodgers [sic] Murder, 06/24/65: Law enforcement officers search the scene of a gruesome double murder. A detective also speaks with a KHOU reporter about the investigation. On June 23, 1965, Marvin Martin called Houston police to check on his aunt and uncle, Fred and Edwina Rogers, whom he had not been able to get in touch with for several days. When officers forced their way into the Montrose home, they found it empty. Noticing food left out in the kitchen, patrolman C. A. Bullock opened the refrigerator, where he discovered the dismembered bodies of the elderly couple. Police then found items believed to have been used in the murder, including a claw hammer, scissors, and a keyhole saw. The couple's adult son, Charles Rogers, who lived in the house, immediately became a person of interest in the investigation. Despite clean-up efforts, evidence of blood was found leading to Charles' bedroom. Charles was never located, and was declared dead in 1975. The case, commonly known as the Ice Box Murders, remains unsolved.
