Rogers made “numerous contradictory and inconsistent statements,” investigators said. But she ultimately told officers she “killed the victim because he wanted her to kill him,” according to the affidavit.
Mineo and Rogers were involved in a cult, she told police. He believed its leader was actually a reptile in human form, the document said.
Mineo wanted to die because he was having difficulty with the cult.
