Over the course of 15 years in Baton Rouge, 52-year-old local talk show host, philanthropist and Englishman Scott Rogers charmed his way into southern society’s tight-knit inner circle. Rogers became a household name in Baton Rouge through his public access show Around Town TV, whichwas a weekend morning staple among the community. So, when he is murdered in his upscale Iberville Parish home, the community is in shock. At first sight, it appears to be a botched murder-suicide.
But as investigators dive deeper into the lives of Scott Rogers and his accused murderer, they begin to unravel a tangled web of lies and a secret that Scott Rogers thought could stay hidden in England.
