City of Lubbock Sanitation Expecting Investigators To Search for Rogers

A Lubbock city employee told NewsChannel 11 investigators did not dig, they just looked around the landfill. Investigators also inquired if the city keeps a log of daily trash runs.  NewsChannel 11 contacted city administrators who told us they do.  City sanitation keeps a daily cover log and is laid out on a grid system.

The city says if given an exact date,  they can get close to a location where trucks dumped the trash. The trash is deposited in a cell.  Each cell is 15 acres in size and holds up to four layers of trash that takes about four years to fill.  Once it is filled, the city moves to a different cell.

Right now,  the city is on "layer four" which means investigators will have to dig at least 48 feet into the ground to find Joanna Rogers' body.   That is only if she is buried there. If investigators can not give an exact date,  a larger area will have to be excavated which will take more time to do. 

Investigators have an interest to search the landfill.  We just don't know when, because investigators are not talking much about the case.
