Ominous message sent by Emily Rogers shortly before her brutal death after 'multiple suspects' taken into custody
A YOUNG mom sent an ominous message to friends – just days before she was found dead in woodland.
Multiple suspects were taken into custody after Emily Rogers’ body was found in Milwaukee, Wisconsin earlier this month.
Rogers, 23, texted friends on April 27 – the day her then-boyfriend Nicholas Matzen, 35, was about to be released from jail, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
He had been behind bars for ten days in connection with an unrelated misdemeanor hit and run case.
Rogers said: “I can tell it’s gonna be an (expletive) day” before later telling friends that she had ended their relationship.
One of her pals asked if Rogers was ok and she replied: “Not exactly.”

She then asked what happened before Rogers responded: “I’ll call you in a minute. If I can.”
Rogers never called her friend and on April 30, she was reported missing.
One of Emily’s friends told cops that she was aware of her plans to end the relationship with Matzen.
Police quizzed Rogers’ neighbor who claimed they had spotted Matzen on April 28 with scratches on his face.

Matzen apparently told the woman that the marks on his face had come from a dog named Hennessy.
But, she was unconvinced as Rogers and Matzen didn’t have a dog.
Her pooch was also called Hennessy, which fueled the neighbor's suspicion more.
Days after being reported missing, Rogers was found dead and coroners ruled that she died from asphyxiation.
While being quizzed, Matzen claimed that he was moving a 400-pound sex doll, according to court documents seen by The Sun.
He refused to reveal the location of the supposed doll to cops in later interviews, court documents allege.
Matzen admitted to a friend that he killed Emily, according to a criminal complaint.
Legal documents claim that Matzen allegedly told the person Rogers was dead.
He allegedly told him he had broken Emily's neck, according to the complaint.
The legal documents claimed that the man reportedly told police that Matzen "lost it" when Emily said she was leaving him.
Another man allegedly told police he helped Matzen wrap Emily's body in a rug and tie it with an extension cord.
Investigators found Rogers' body hidden under a discarded Christmas tree near a retention pond.
Milwaukee Police said there was reasonable suspicion to believe Rogers’ disappearance wasn’t voluntary.
They added that she could’ve been the victim of foul play.
Her dad Terry told The Sun: "I’m still processing the whole thing. We'll never get the answer to why, and I try not to dwell on it. It’s step by step, day by day."
Matzen has been charged with first-degree reckless homicide and hiding a corpse in connection with her death.
