ST. GABRIEL - Documents uncovered by WBRZ show Scott Rogers obtained a second mortgage on his Daisy Avenue home soon before his murder last week.

Two weeks prior to when he was shot and killed; he secured a $344,954 mortgage. Rogers' lover, Mathew Hodgkinson, and another man who lived with the men are listed as the two witnesses on the document. Hodgkinson, who is also Rogers' son-in-law since investigators said he married Rogers' daughter to stay in the United States with Rogers, is accused of shooting and killing the TV personality last week and shooting himself in a failed attempt at suicide.

Hodgkinson is said to be on a ventilator, but began to show signs of life this week.

Authorities believe Rogers molested and manipulated both men from a young age, and brought them to the U.S. Both men were Rogers' students at his dance school in England where Rogers was known as Richard Scott Rogers in the 1990s and where he faced child molestation charges.

On the same day he filed for his second mortgage, Rogers filed a quitclaim to remove the name Richard Scott Rogers from the deed to his home.
