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.

Going by what you posted I would of voted not guilty. Yes my gut tells me he did it but you have to be sure with no doubt  and I'm guessing the jury didnt trust the cops.

Quoting Carpy:

It was conclusive. 

List of the evidence in the O.J. Simpson double-murder trial:

Key evidence and testimony in the O.J. Simpson murder trial, with explanations of how the prosecution has used it against Simpson thus far and how the defense has challenged it:

Crime scene blood:

Blood drops were found alongside bloody shoe prints leading away from the bodies of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman; blood was found on a gate at the back of the murder scene condominium; blood from both places contained Simpson's genetic markers. Simpson had a cut on his left middle finger when interviewed by police the day after the killings.

Prosecution: one of the most important parts of the case, claiming it placed Simpson at the crime scene; said Simpson dripped blood after wounding his finger with a knife during the murders; said scientific controls and testing by different labs thwarted any possibility of contamination or tampering.

Defense: mounted vigorous counterattack, alleging samples were sloppily collected and poorly handled, rendering DNA results unreliable; raised possibility that blood was planted by someone who took it from a police crime lab vial that contained Simpson's blood and a blood preservative; most compelling evidence was bloodstains on paper wrapping that was supposed to be holding dry blood samples; wound on Simpson's left hand was only a minor one he suffered in his house - not enough to drip as much blood as prosecutors found - and that Simpson re-injured the finger when he cut it on a glass in a Chicago hotel room the morning after killings, before police interviewed him.

Bloody shoe prints:

The bloody shoe prints matched a size 12 Bruno Magli shoe, a relatively rare Italian-made model. Simpson wears size 12 shoes.

Prosecution: tried to place Simpson at the murder scene by showing that Bloomingdale's in New York, where Simpson sometimes shopped, carried such shoes.

Defense: Thousands of people bought such shoes; noted that no murder shoes were ever recovered and that the prosecution had no evidence that Simpson ever purchased such shoes; raised the possibility that unexplained "imprints'' that didn't match the Bruno Magli sole also were at the crime scene.

Crime scene hairs and fibers:

Hairs found in a dark knit cap were similar to Simpson's hairs; fibers on a cap were similar to those in the carpeting of Simpson's Ford Bronco; dark blue cotton fibers were found on Goldman.

Prosecution: Evidence places Simpson at the crime scene; noted that a witness said Simpson wore a dark sweat suit the night of the murders.

Defense: Hairs mean nothing more than assailant may have been black, as is roughly 10 percent of Los Angeles' population; also pointed to hairs that appeared to contain no dandruff, while Simpson's hair sample had some dandruff; no dark blue sweat suit was ever found; evidence could have been cast about the scene when a detective unfurled a blanket from Ms. Simpson's home to cover her body.

Bloody gloves:

One dark, cashmere-lined Aris Light leather glove, size extra large, was found at the murder scene, another behind Simpson's guest house, near where Brian "Kato'' Kaelin heard bumps in the night. Ms. Simpson bought Simpson two pair of such gloves in 1990. DNA tests showed blood on glove found on Simpson's property appeared to contain genetic markers of Simpson and both victims; a long strand of blond hair similar to Ms. Simpson's also was found on that glove.

Prosecution: Simpson lost the left glove at his ex-wife's home during the struggle and, in a rush, inadvertently dropped the right glove while trying to hide it; explained that evidence gloves didn't fit Simpson in a courtroom demonstration because the gloves shrunk from being soaked in blood and Simpson had rubber gloves on underneath.

Defense: glove behind guest house was planted by Detective Mark Fuhrman, a racist cop trying to frame Simpson; blood on glove may have been planted by police; gloated that evidence gloves didn't fit; hair analysis isn't sophisticated enough to be trusted.

Bloody socks:

Pair of dark, crumpled socks found at the foot of Simpson's bed; DNA tests found the genetic markers of Simpson and his ex-wife.

Prosecution: contended this directly linked a victim to Simpson.

Defense: suggested socks were planted at house by police, then blood was put on socks later at the police lab to frame Simpson; most compelling evidence of tampering is that some blood soaked all the way through one sock to other side, which it shouldn't have done if a foot was in it.

Bloody Bronco:

Small spot of blood found near driver's outside door handle of Simpson's Ford Bronco; other blood found smeared inside on console, door, steering wheel and carpeting; DNA tests showed some of the blood apparently a mixture with genetic markers of Simpson and the victims.

Prosecution: said Simpson drove Bronco to and from crime scene.

Defense: challenged interpretation of DNA tests, particularly those suggesting a genetic match to Goldman in a mixture; noted that the genetic material of an unknown person was found in the steering wheel blood; suggested police planted some of the blood; elicited testimony that the Bronco was entered at least twice by unauthorized people while it sat in a police impound yard.

Timeline:

Murders occurred between 10:15 p.m. and 10:40 p.m., based on testimony from prosecution and defense witnesses who heard barking from the area of the crime scene. Ms. Simpson's blood-covered pet Akita was found shortly before 11 p.m.

Prosecution: Simpson lacked an alibi or even plausible story for what he was doing alone during this period; pointed to testimony of a neighbor who saw a vehicle similar to a Bronco racing away from the crime scene at 10:35 p.m.; suggested that Simpson would still have had time to make the approximately five-minute drive home in time for Kaelin to hear bumps behind guest house at about 10:40 p.m.; suggested that the shadowy figure seen by a waiting limousine driver slipping into Simpson's house just before 11 p.m. was Simpson returning from the murders.

Defense: Simpson didn't have enough time from when he was last seen by Kaelin about 9:40 p.m. to drive to Ms. Simpson's home, kill two people, hide bloody clothing and murder weapon, drive home, drop glove behind guest house and clean up before greeting the limo driver about 11 p.m.; told jurors during opening statements that Simpson was home practicing his golf swing at the hour of the murders.

Violent past:

Through 911 calls to police and testimony, prosecutors allege a history of Simpson hitting, degrading and stalking Ms. Simpson.

Prosecution: pointed to motive, showing Simpson was prone to jealous rages and capable of hurting his ex-wife; suggested Goldman died because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and Simpson may have seen him as a potential suitor.

Defense: irrelevant, isolated events that were poorly supported by what little evidence the prosecution presented.

By The Associated Press

 On the night of June 12, 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and friend Ron Goldman, were killed between the time of 10 P.M. and 12 A.M. They were killed with a knife at 875 South Bundy Drive (Nicole's townhouse) in Brentwood, California. Orenthal James (O.J.) Simpson, ex-husband of Nicole Brown Simpson, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
A large quantity blood was found at the Bundy estate and at the Rockingham estate. A trail of blood was found at the actual crime scene as well as in Simpson's white Bronco and at his house. The walk and the rear gate at the Bundy estate had blood from Simpson. This was determined by using genetic fingerprinting. The blood of Nicole Brown Simpson matched the bloodstains that were collected at the crime scene (Nicole's house) and at O.J.'s house.

     Blood with DNA that matched Simpson's was found at Brown's condo. Blood spots in Simpson's car contained DNA matching Brown's, Goldman's and Simpson's. At Nicole's house, the rear gate and the walkway contained Simpson's blood. The shoe print of Goldman's shoe and Nicole's fingernails had her blood on it. At O.J.'s place, the foyer and driveway contained the same blood. The socks found in Simpson's bedroom had his and Nicole's blood on it. The glove found on his property contained the blood of all three of them. In Simpson's Ford Bronco, the instrument panel and inside door contained O.J.'s blood. The steering wheel had the blood of O.J. Simpson and Nicole on it. The carpet on the driver's side contained Nicole's blood, and the console had the blood of O.J., Nicole and Ron Goldman.

     There were five blood drops at Brown's home containing DNA that matched Simpson's, four were located on the walkway and the fifth blood drop was found in the driveway. The blood drops on the walkway began near the murder victims, to the left of the bloody footprints leading away from Brown's home and continued past the rear gate and into the driveway. The location of the blood drops indicated that they were shed by the killer, who was bleeding drops to the ground as he left the scene of the crime, heading from the walkway to the rear gate and then the driveway.

     The DNA analysis on the blood drops was conducted by the LAPD lab, Cellmark (a private lab in Maryland), and the California Department of Justice Lab. All three labs independently found that the DNA in the blood drops matched Simpson's DNA. A RFLP (Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism analysis) was done from a blood drop found on the driveway that was large enough to be tested on through the procedure. This procedure produced a 1in 170 million match of Simpson's DNA to the DNA in the driveway. The other four blood drops were tested by PCR testing (Polymerase Chain Reaction). There was a 1 in 5,200 match on the fifth.

Quoting Carpy:

it was splattered in his bronco. His as well as both victims.

Quoting survivorinohio:

I think he had something to do with it but there wasnt enough blood in the blazer for him to have been on the recieving end of arterial spray. Thats  A LOT of blood we are talking about.

The blood found in the blazer did not adequately represent what I believe would be present

Quoting Carpy:

Plenty of blood evidence in the Blazer, his yard, his house and his clothes.



Quoting survivorinohio:

Not enough blood evidence in the blazer.  The drop seemed planted.

Quoting pvtjokerus:

 Why do you think OJ did not commit the crime?






Quoting 1Giovanni:



I never believed that OJ did it...This doesn't suprise me at all.
