Documentary Claims Serial Murderer Could Have Killed Nicole Brown Simpson

A documentary scheduled to air on Investigation Discovery on Wednesday argues that a serial murderer may have been the person who killed Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman.

The documentary identifies Glen Rogers, originally from Hamilton, Ohio, as the possible perpetrator, report the New York Post, and a press release. The documentary relies on interviews with Rogers’ family, including the brother who first turned him in after discovering a rotting corpse in the family’s Minnesota cabin.

Rogers has claimed he killed more than 70 people; he has been convicted of two murders and is currently on death row in Florida. His family says Glen Rogers told them in 1994, months before the deaths of Simpson and Goldman, that he was working and partying with Nicole Brown Simpson and he was “going to take her down.” Receipts show Glen Rogers was working as a house painter in the Los Angeles area at the time.

Glen Rogers has provided a detailed account of the Simpson murder to a criminal profiler, according to the press release. The profiler says Glen Rogers told him he knew O.J. Simpson because the football star had hired him to steal a pair of $20,000 earrings from the home of his ex-wife.

O.J. Simpson was acquitted of the murders in a 1995 trial.
