The family of Nicole Brown Simpson is criticizing an Investigation Discovery documentary that claims that OJ Simpson did not murder her and Ron Goldman in 1994. The documentary, which airs tonight, claims that a serial killer on death row murdered them.
As we previously reported, My Brother the Serial Killer claims that Glen Rogers committed the murders. The documentary shows how Rogers gave a criminal lawyer detailed evidence and even claimed that OJ paid him $20,000 to steal a pair of earrings from Simpson. Rogers claims that OJ told him to kill “the bitch” if necessary.
Denise Brown, Simpson’s sister, told The Daily Mail that she has no idea who Rogers is.
“I don't know of Glen Rogers but from what I've heard he's not famous and wants to be. My thoughts are he should have come forward years ago if fame is what he's seeking,” Brown said. “I think it's the biggest bunch of crap I've heard in a while and I've heard a lot.”
Goldman’s family is also trying to discredit the documentary, notes Fox News.
“The overwhelming evidence at the criminal trial proved that one and only person murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. That person is O.J. Simpson and not Glen Rogers. The fact that O.J. Simpson was acquitted was a stain on the American criminal justice system. That stain will blemish our court system for a thousand years,” their attorney told Fox.
“The Discovery Channel can pack a hundred thousand screaming Glen Rogers’s in the Los Angeles Coliseum. They can confess in unison from here until the cow comes home. But nothing, and I mean nothing, would absolve O.J. from the unrequited crimes that he committed when he took the lives of these two people.”
Goldman’s sister added that she is “appalled at the level of irresponsibility” shown by the network.
As for OJ, who is in prison for theft, a source told Fox that he “absolutely loves it.”
