Who doesn’t like a good mystery; especially when it involves a former National Football League legend?
For all of those who believed O.J. Simpson got away with murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, in 1994; the story is still being written. And the twists in this plot aren’t things even the best mystery writers could pen themselves.
In an Investigation Discovery documentary, Glen Rogers’ brother Clay makes the case his brother is responsible for the sensational murders that made headlines around the world and a verdict that divided a society. “My Brother the Serial Killer” is slated to air tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 21.
"I'm absolutely certain that my brother killed Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman," Clay Rogers says in the documentary. The two brothers use to rob homes together, but in 1993 Clay Rogers called the police on Glen after discovering a body at the family’s Kentucky cabin.
Six weeks after Simpson was acquitted in the murders, Glen Rogers was arrested. Police alleged he went on a nationwide killing spree, ending the lives of more than 70 people.
Glen Rogers also told his brother and sister he was hanging out with Brown, according to the documentary. He told them she was rich and he would “take her down,” the documentary said. Receipts place Rogers in Los Angeles, working as a housepainter, at the time of the homicides.
"I am appalled at the level of irresponsibility demonstrated by the network and the producers of this so-called documentary," Ron Goldman’s sister, Kim, said. "This is the first time we are hearing about this story, and considering that their 'main character,' Glen Rogers, confessed to stabbing my brother and Nicole to death, you would think we would be in the loop."
In an interview with ABC News, filmmaker David Monaghan said the confession by Glen Rogers, who is currently on death row in Florida, suggests "the authorities should open the books on it.”
While the documentary isn’t likely to change opinions about the whodunit, “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," ABC News legal analyst Dan Abrams said.
Simpson was sentenced to a 33 year stint in a Nevada state prison in 2008, one year after he robbed a group of men of sports memorabilia he claimed was his.The documentary airs at 9 p.m., EST, Nov. 21.
