Married E! Reality Star Lisa Marie Naegle Pictured Hours Before Nursing Student Lover Beat Her with a Hammer and Buried Her Naked in His Backyard


A male nursing student has been charged with the murder of a bridal reality show contestant after confessing to killing her, the LAPD said Tuesday.

Jackie Jerome Rogers is currently held on a $2 million bail, an LAPD spokesman told the Detectives and members of the coroner’s office retrieved her body in a shallow grave at his home on the 5000 block of 106 St in Inglewood, California.

Lisa Marie Naegle, who once competed on the E! show Bridalplasty, went missing after a birthday party at the Alpine Village Restaurant in Torrance Saturday night.

The 36-year-old nurse texted her husband Derek Harryman around 2.45 am to let him know she was grabbing food and then coming home. Two days passed without Harryman hearing a word from his wife.


Rogers has now confessed to murdering Naegle, according to the LAPD. Police didn’t immediately announce a motive.

Naegle was hit on the head seven with a hammer early Sunday morning, TMZ reported citing law enforcement sources.

She and Rogers had just gone to Jack In The Box, and Rogers said she had just broken up with him to go back with her husband, according to TMZ.

Naegle’s body was found naked and face down in Roger’s yard, TMZ reported on Tuesday evening.

The coroner’s office will give the final cause of death and will formally identify the remains.

Family members told the Associated Press Rogers was a student of Naegle, who taught a college nursing class.

Naegle’s family had confronted Rogers after seeing surveillance footage, which they said showed Naegle getting into Rogers’ car.

Naegle’s sister, Danielle Naegle-Kaimona, told ABC 7 that Rogers said he was having an affair with Naegle. Naegle-Kaimona told the network that Naegle had told her Rogers was gay.

She said Rogers initially denied any involvement.

‘We begged and pleaded that he’d come to our home to kind of give us details on what time, where were things, and when he left her, but while he was talking to us and telling us his story, multiple different times he said he absolutely did not go home with her, or did not take her home,’ Naegle-Kaimona said.

Rogers later changed altered his story to say that Naegle had gotten into his car but had gotten out moments later, the family said. The family then said they called the police, who detained Rogers.

Harryman, Naegle’s husband, had expressed his concern during his wife’s disappearance.

‘Everyone is beyond frustrated, beyond worried,’ Harryman told the Orange County Register. ‘I’m flipping out.’

‘We are trying to have a baby. We are looking forward to starting a family.’

Harryman, who is a vessel operations superintendent at the Port of Los Angeles, was at work when Naegle told him she was headed to the party with her brother.

Naegle had only planned to stay for a few hours because she was scheduled to teach nursing classes at West Los Angeles College on Sunday.

But when Harryman returned from work at 2 am on Sunday, he saw that his wife still wasn’t home.
He said Naegle called him a minute or two later.

‘She sounded really, really drunk,’ he said. ‘She said, “I’m going to get some food and then I’ll be home.” ‘

Harryman expected Naegle would come home with an Uber car, saying she often uses the app and the same driver to get home.

Naegle was nowhere to be found when Harryman woke up the next morning, but he believed she must have just stayed with her brother and gone straight to work.

Then Harryman found out that Naegle hadn’t gone to the party with her brother, but a male nursing student – later identified as Rogers – who had picked her up.

The student had told Harryman his wife had wanted to go to an after-party. He said he did not stay with her and went home alone.

After talking to him, Harryman texted his wife: ‘You didn’t come home last night. This is unacceptable. You must be feeling horrible because you have to teach.’

But then Harryman received a call notifying him that Naegle had never shown up to her class.

That’s when he and Naegle’s brother went to the police and reported her missing.

On Monday Naegle’s family invited Rogers to their home. They said his story began to change as they asked him questions, and they called the police.

Naegle finished fourth on Bridalplasty, a 2010 reality show about a group of women who moved into a mansion to compete for a dream wedding and plastic surgery.
