Parent of dead Kalispell boy given polygraph test; acknowledges custody battle

Posted: Updated:

KALISPELL, Mont. - The Flathead County sheriff says the body of a missing 3-year-old boy was found Friday night in a septic tank, near where the father of Loic Rogers said he had momentarily left the boy Wednesday night.

Sheriff Mike Meehan says an autopsy showed the boy drowned. He also says the lid on the septic tank was closed which suggests that someone put the child in the tank and put the lid back on.

Meehan refused to charactize the case as a murder investigation, but told reporters that investigators hope to have the case wrapped up in the next four to five days.

Also at the news conference, FBI Agent Rick Rasmussen acknowledged that one of Loic's parents had taken a polygraph test but refused to say which one, and would not comment on the results of the test.

The boy's mother, Ariel Rogers, acknowledges that she and Mark Rogers are going through a divorce, and that both have been seeking custody of their children. There are two besides Loic. Ariel is expecting a fourth child.

The father said he took the boy out to the car around 6:45 p.m. Wednesday and went back inside to get Loic's little sister. The father says he was inside only for a minute but when he came back out, the boy was gone.
