Bionca Rogers, 21, jailed in murder case

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - A 61-year-old Colorado Springs man, whose body was found in a car parked in an Iowa town, died from blunt force trauma and multiple stab wounds, authorities said Thursday.

The Iowa Office of the State Medical Examiner ruled that Grant Frazier's death was a homicide, according to the Colorado Springs Police Department.

Bionca Rogers, a 21-year-old woman who was the last person seen with Frazier when he disappeared on Feb. 16, is being held on investigation of first-degree murder in the Linn County Jail in Iowa. Police said she surrendered to police in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, early Wednesday.

Colorado Springs police said, "it has not yet been determined if Ms. Rogers acted alone," adding that the investigation is ongoing.

Frazier's body was found Tuesday in a car parked outside an apartment complex in Newton, Iowa.

Public records show Rogers recently lived in Iowa City and she has also lived in Cedar Rapids.

The El Paso County District Attorney’s Office will be seeking her extradition back to Colorado, police said.
