And they say they have recovered a body from a shallow grave in the backyard of the home of suspect Jackie Rogers — and say they believe it is the body of the reality TV show performer.

Rogers is an acquaintance of Nagle; they were last spotted together at a birthday party Torrance, California over the weekend.

Naegle, who was also a nurse and part-time nursing instructor, was teaching Rogers, KTLA reported.

Naegle was a losing contestant on the show “Bridalplasty” in 2010. She competed for a dream wedding and plastic surgery.
