Search to Begin Soon at Lubbock Landfill

The search for missing teen Joanna Rogers is expected to begin by the end of the week or beginning of next week.

NewsChannel 11 broke the story last Thursday, telling you Governor Rick Perry's office approved $100,000 for the search.

Monday, Lubbock County Commissioners approved $100,000 for the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office so they can go ahead and start the search. They expect to be reimbursed by the governor's office.

Rogers has been missing since may 2004. Two months ago, Rosendo Rodriguez confessed to strangling the teen, putting her body in a suitcase and throwing it in a dumpster. He's the same man who's charged with capital murder in the death of Summer Baldwin whose body was found inside a suitcase at the city landfill last September.
