    OK - Dana Rogers, 58, found dead along Highway 69, Eufaula, 11 Feb 2010

    Posted: 2:47 PM Feb 12, 2010
    EUFAULA, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says foul play
    is suspected in the death of a Eufaula woman whose body was found
    along U.S. Highway 69.

    Lt. George Brown says the body of 48-year-old Dana Rogers was
    found about 11:30 p.m. Thursday. Brown says investigators initially
    thought she was a victim of an auto-pedestrian hit-and-run.

    Brown says troopers now are considering the case as a possible
    homicide and that the woman was killed elsewhere and the body
    staged to look like a hit-and-run.

    Brown did not say what led investigators to change their initial
    assessment.

    The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the death of a Longtown woman found by the side of the road may have been staged to look like a hit-and-run.

    The body of Dana Jolyne Rogers, 48, was found four miles north of Eufaula on U.S. 69 about 11:30 p.m. Thursday, Lt. George Brown, OHP spokesman, said Friday.

    One of Rogers’ best friends, Vicki Horner of Longtown, said it is a big mystery.

    “We were texting each other last night — the last text from her was at 9:39 p.m.,” Horner said.

    Investigators initially thought Rogers was a victim of an auto-pedestrian hit-and-run, Brown said. He said a trooper later questioned whether Rogers’ death was a possible homicide and believed she might have been killed elsewhere.

    Horner said she met with an OHP investigator Friday who told her he believed whatever happened to Rogers happened “right there on the highway.”

    Horton said Rogers sent her a text message to say that she and her son, James (in his mid-20s) and a friend (Heidi) were out having a good time last night.

    “She seemed to be herself,” Horton said.

    “How she got to be all by herself on the highway — I don’t know.”

    She said Rogers’ son James was in New Orleans this morning. He didn’t know what happened to his mother and was trying to get back to Oklahoma, Horton said.

    Prayers for her friends & family.

    And I hope Oklahoma LE investigates & gets the perp....I wish I had more faith but the OK cases don't seem to get solved quickly, IMO.

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    RIP Dana.

    Too bad this happened in OK, because LE there doesn't seem to have a clue when it comes to solving homicides.

    My DBF goes out of town occasionally for tournaments.

    I've asked him very nicely to pleeeeease not go to OK....I don't know what I'd do if he disappeared or worse happened....I'm afraid I wouldn't have much hope, and I'm not a 'hopeless' attitude kind of person.....I know I couldn't take months & years of hearing *nothing* from LE.

    RIP, Dana

    I'm praying justice does exist in OK.

    Not to mention this case seems vaguely familiar to me. Let me see, her body was found 6 miles north of Eufaula, supposedly where my suspect in the Weleetka murders lives/hides. 6 miles from an American Legion Post which he is a member of. Without seeing a picture of her I will predict she is a platinum blonde like Denise Stice, Joann Stephens. I am real creeped out about your L.E. out there.

    Although there have certainly been some strange cases in eastern Oklahoma lately, Oklahoma overall has many very competent officers/investigators. IE; '86 Larson murder in Edmond, OK.

    Welcome, younggeo!

    I'm sure there are many very competent LEO & investigators in OK...maybe they need better spokespersons or media contacts.

    There are too many cases that leave us wondering "are they doing anything?".

    I guess it's a situation of 'perception is reality'.

    Medical examiner: Eufaula woman died from hit and run
    Published: 2/17/2010 9:40 AM


    A ruling from the state Medical Examiner's Office has investigators changing their course again in the death of a Eufaula woman who was found along a McIntosh County highway.

    Officials ruled that the death of Dana Rogers, 48, resulted from a hit-and-run accident, according to a bulletin from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. Investigators had said earlier that her death was possibly a homicide and someone may have staged her body along the roadway.

    The agency is now focusing on the vehicle that is believed to have hit Rogers. Information about it is scarce, Lt. Jason Holt said.

    "At this point, we have no vehicle information to go on. We are asking for anyone with information to come forward and assist us," he said.

    Agreed. And the state Medical Examiner's Office has been known to be wrong, as well.

    710 SB Highway 69, Eufaula OK. (I think the SB stands for southbound.)

    It set on the east side of HWY69, aprox. a mile north of HWY 150... I'd guess about half way between the towns of Eufaula & Checotah.
