Former “Bridalplasty” contestant Lisa Marie Naegle has been missing since Sunday morning, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Naegle was reportedly attending a birthday party at the Alpine Village Restaurant in Torrance, California, on Saturday night and did not return home. She also did not show up to her job as a nurse the following day.
Naegle’s husband Derek Harryman told KTLA that his wife sounded drunk when they spoke on the phone, and that he and her family looked at security camera footage from the restaurant. “There’s video footage that was just discovered from Alpine Village within the last hour showing my wife getting into a black SUV,” Harryman said.
TMZ reported on Tuesday that police are holding nursing student Jackie Jerome Rogers on suspicion of murder. Anonymous sources told TMZ that security camera footage showed Naegle leaving the bar with Rogers, despite his claim that they left separately.
LA police simply said that they are investigating a “person of interest” in the case.
Naegle’s family insists that she would not disappear voluntarily, with her sister telling KTLA that Naegle and her husband were trying to have a baby. “Her missing work, her not calling anybody, a million red flags,” Harryman said of his wife.
Naegle competed on the E! reality series “Bridalplasty” in 2010. The widely criticized show saw 12 brides-to-be competing for a wedding and a complete plastic surgery makeover.
