Man 'Squeezed Buttocks of Filipina Wife's Frozen Body to Prove to Friend he'd KiIIed Her'

A Texas man killed his 24-year-old estranged Filipina wife and stored her body inside a garage freezer as part of a twisted murder-suicide, according to reports.

Edward Rogers Jr., 66, even reportedly showed off the corpse of his dead wife, Alyssa Marie Mejia Rogers, to a friend who didn’t believe that he actually killed her — and squeezed her buttocks during the macabre display.

The Arlington man later called around to relatives on Monday and confessed to the crime and to storing the slain woman’s body several days earlier, family members said.

“She was in the freezer for eight days,” Rogers’ former mother-in-law from a previous marriage, Jackie Lee, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

After making the calls, in which he apologized for what he’d done, Rogers then shot himself to death, according to the report.

Responding cops later found the woman’s body in a freezer and Rogers dead in a bedroom, the Dallas Morning News reports.

A message seeking comment Wednesday from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office was not immediately returned.

Police learned of the suspected murder-suicide after a friend of Rogers said he had told him that he killed his wife, according to the affidavit.

Rogers then took his friend into his garage after the man doubted his story before showing him the body inside and grabbing the buttocks before smirking and saying that her body was “cold,” the affidavit states.

Rogers claimed to cops that Alyssa Rogers — a Philippines native whom he married about two years earlier after meeting her online — hit her head on the corner of an object during an argument at his home. A cause of death has not been determined, but police reportedly consider it a murder suicide.

The alleged killer had a violent rap sheet and was set to be sentenced in August for choking his wife, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Rogers also pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the 2004 slaying of a 41-year-old coworker, whom he stabbed in the chest during an argument at a pool party in Benbrook.

He was initially charged with murder, but a judge declared a mistrial after a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict. Rogers ultimately received eight years of deferred probation, and the case was later dismissed after he completed his probation conditions, the Morning News reports.
