Serial Killer Murdered Nicole Brown Simpson, New Documentary Claims

A convicted serial killer currently on death row killed O.J. Simpson's ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, a new documentary claims.

"My Brother the Serial Killer" claims Glen Rogers was behind the 1994 murders that made nationwide headlines. The documentary, which airs Nov. 21 on Investigation Discovery, includes a candid interview with Rogers' brother, Clay.

"I'm absolutely certain that my brother killed Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman," Clay Rogers told the filmmakers.

Glen Rogers was arrested six weeks after Simpson, the famous football player and Brown's ex-husband, was acquitted of the murders. Police claimed Rogers went on a nationwide killing spree, allegedly murdering more than 70 people.

Receipts show that Rogers was working as a housepainter in Los Angeles at the time of the murders, according to the documentary. In the weeks before the Brown and Goldman were killed, Rogers told his brother and sister he was hanging around with Brown and said she was rich and he was going to "take her down."

According to the documentary, Rogers later told a criminal profiler that Simpson had hired him to steal back a pair of expensive earrings from Brown. Simpson allegedly told Rogers that "you have to kill the [expletive]"

Rogers also provided a "detailed account" of the murder to criminal profiler Anthony Meoli, according to the documentary. Rogers drew a picture of the knife he claims to have used, which matches the forensic description of the blade.

"There has been no investigation of Glen Rogers. The fact that he is confessing now surely means that the authorities should open the books on it," said filmmaker David Monaghan.

Goldman's father, Fred, does not believe the documentary.

"The fact of the acquittal at the hands of the jury will never wash away this murder from the hands of O.J. Simpson, not matter how many Glen Rogers pop up on the media radar screen," Goldman told TMZ.

While the new documentary is bound to generate attention on a case that gripped the nation, experts say it will unlikely change many minds about who did it.

"The filmmaker has created a compelling case here. The problem is, it doesn't deal with the enormous amount of evidence pointing at O.J. Simpson," said ABC News legal analyst Dan Abrams.

Simpson is currently serving up to 33 years in Nevada state prison after a group of men say the former football star robbed them of sports memorabilia at a hotel in 2007.

Rogers was captured in 1995 after his family tipped off police about his location. He has received death sentences in California and Florida and currently awaiting execution on Florida's death row.

Rogers was not interviewed for the documentary.

Strange how he and Simpson had the same DNA.

I was way too little to remember all the details of OJs trial, but I do remember him writing a book pretty much confessing to it...

The cops didn't mishandle it.  The prosecution was horribly incompetent.

Quoting stacymomof2:

Weird. I always felt oj was guilty and only got off because of the cops and the way they mishandled the case. I think there was justified fear that the cops messed with the evidence. That didn't mean he didn't do it though, the evidence that he was an abuser convinced me.

It would be a waste of time.  ALL evidence points to Simpson and Simpson alone.

Quoting smalltownmom03:

I don't remember enough about that case to know whether or not to believe this. But it should be looked into.

If he had hired someone, it would not have been such a personal raging knife attack.

Quoting billsfan1104:

I always thought that he hired someone too, and he was there during the murder, though.

Quoting honey27:

I never thought oj did it himself. Whoever thought that wasn't thinking. He probably hired that man to do it. I always figured he paid someone to do it.

OT- Weird personal fact. The night of my wedding rehearsal, my DF, the wedding party and myself were watching the slow speed chase live in the bar of the restaurant where we had dinner. OJ's aquittal was announced the same day my divorce was final! So my marriage was the exact length of the whole OJ fiasco!

Eh. I remember the case mostly even though I was just a child.

This wouldn't be the first time someone confessed to a murder they didn't do. As with most cases of high profile cases. Stupid but true. Look at a few of the unsolved major cases. People want the fame.

I'm not saying your wrong.

But I'm not agreeing 100% either. Many serial killers make it personal with the victim. It's the thrill, control, or a way to get off. They get excited and enjoy the kill.

This guy was a serial killer, so I do t think that part mattered. I am in the fence on this. I listened to Mark Furhman on Oprah when his book came out, and I was all like "he'll each he did it!!" And then when I saw this documentary, my views kinda changed.
