When the police did an autopsy on Summer they learned a few things. She had been severely beaten, suffered from asphyxiation, and had been anally and vaginally raped. That to go along with the fact that she was 10 weeks pregnant. It is sad that anyone is dead but a pregnant prostitute imagine the STD’s you could collect from someone like that?
The detectives on the case got a lucky break. The suitcase where Summer’s body was placed in was exclusively sold at Walmart. This was the way that the so called Great Man Rosendo Rodriguez got caught. At 3 am in the morning when he was in Lubbock for military training he went to Walmart. While there he purchased a suitcase and latex gloves. Now who buys that at 3 am? That is like going into a store at that time and buying spoons and baking soda we all know what you need it for.
Once detectives talked to walmart employees they found out only 2 of those suitcases had been purchased in the last week. Then right on camera they seen Rosendo Rodriguez buy it. How did they know he was? He used his military debit card to purchase the items. He was also driving a red rental truck. A truck that an associate of Summer’s said that she was last seen in.
What makes this guy even sound more guilty is that he stayed at a Holiday Inn while the rest of the guys staying in Lubbock for the training stayed in a Holiday Inn too but on the other side of town. Rodriguez was the only one that stayed at that certain hotel.
When police seized Rodriguez’s computer they found that he searched numerous times for Summer Baldwin articles and also discovered that he searched for another girl which he had killed earlier in 2004 named Joanna Rogers.
Investigation: When police searched the Holiday Inn in which Rodriguez stayed in they. A month after the murder, Rodriguez, accompanied by counsel, gave a statement to the police. Rodriguez admitted that he had spent time with Baldwin. He stated that he met Baldwin on Saturday evening, September 10th, around 10:00 p.m. He said that he was driving down a dark street when he saw Baldwin walking in the same direction that he was driving. He noticed that she was crying, so he pulled over. After letting her get cleaned up at his hotel room, he drove her home. He claimed that he did not know that Baldwin was a prostitute.
Rosendo Rodriguez born March 26th, 1980: Rosendo Rodriguez was born in Wichita Falls, Texas. His father was a defence lawyer for 20 plus years but known as abusive and a drunk. Rodriguez attended Texas Tech and lived in San Antonio with his parents. He was in the Marines Corps Reserves and went to Lubbock monthly. Eventually warrants were issued for his arrest immediately.
|Only reason he looks upset is because he got caught!|
He is a Mexican- American who claims to love the second world war. He likes soccer and is a movie addict and claims that his favourite movie is Kill Bill. He also likes to play dungeons and dragons (you know that game all the cool kids played in school). At one point he claimed to be writing a book about Zombies.
If you ever feel like writing to this all star to let him know what you think here is his address
He then went to Walmart where he purchased the suit case and latex gloves not only was he caught on camera buying these items but his card key from the Holiday Inn confirms the times in which he entered his hotel room.
On September 14th, 2005 Summers wallet was found in a trash bin with no money in it. Due to the fact that Summer was pregnant her murder is considered a double homicide.
Joanna Kathryn Rogers (Born June 25th, 1987): Rogers was 16 when she went missing in 2004. Rodriguez claimed that they had sex and then she demanded money from him
He then choked her to death stuffed her body in a suitcase also. The city searched the city landfill for 2 months before they found her decomposed body. She snuck out of her house at 3 am to go meet Rodriguez whom she had met on the internet.
The US postal service distributed out 52.000 fliers on the one year anniversary of her disappearance and got nothing back.
She was a junior at Lubbock high school at the time of her disappearance. There she was active in theatre, Dance, Debate, and Student relations. She was also involved with church and youth activities.
Plea Deal: Under a plea deal Rodriguez would give information on where the body of Joanna Rogers was so he could serve a life sentence and avoid the death penalty.

This piece of shit wants his last meal to be 5 turkey legs I think they should feed him dog shit.
My Thoughts: I hope they kill this guy as soon as they can he is a waste of space and air and deserves to die now. Why waste all that money to keep this sick fuck alive. I hope he reads this one day and if he does I hope he does us all a favor and asks to die now.
