Rogers Family Witnesses Murder Confession

The Rogers left the Lubbock County Courthouse Friday morning and declined interviews after seeing the confession for the first time. 

The tape was apparently made two days ago when Rosendo Rodriguez reportedly told authorities he killed Joanna and put her body in a suitcase.  The body has not been found and the Rogers say they will not give up hope until they see some concrete evidence.

The family speculates Rodriguez may be confessing to get some sort of plea agreement.  Rodriguez is not charged with Roger's murder but you will recall last December, he was named a primary suspect in her disappearance.

He is charged with capital murder in the death of Summer Baldwin. Her body was found inside a suitcase at the city landfill last September.
