At its meeting held November 8, 2005, the Board took the following action:

     The following statement was entered into the record for Supervisor Knabe:

      “On August 20, 2005, Barbara Rogers was reported missing from her residence located in Lakewood. During the course of the investigation, it became apparent that Ms. Rogers was missing under suspicious circumstances.

      “On September 7, 2005, Ms. Rogers’ remains were located in the San Gabriel River basin in the City of Pico Rivera and the case was turned over to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau.

      “Ms. Rogers was a retired stewardess from TWA and was “Miss Iowa” in 1965. She was a long-time resident of the City of Lakewood and lived alone. Sheriff’s Homicide detectives are investigating this murder, however, to date they have received no viable clues regarding the incident.

      “Investigators believe this would be an appropriate time to offer a reward in this case which may prompt otherwise reluctant witnesses to come forward and provide information to identify those responsible for this crime.”

      Therefore, at the suggestion of Supervisor Knabe and on motion of Supervisor Yaroslavsky, seconded by Supervisor Burke, unanimously carried (Supervisor Knabe being absent), the Board established a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of Barbara Rogers who was reported missing from her residence in Lakewood on August 20, 2005 and whose remains were located in the San Gabriel River basin in the City of Pico Rivera on September 7, 2005.
