O.J. Simpson was accused in those killings but the so-called “trial of the century” in Los Angeles ended with his acquittal in 1995.
Much of the film is narrated by Rogers‘ brother, Clay Rogers, who used to rob homes with Glen Rogers as a teen, but in 1993 called police on his brother after finding a body at the family’s Kentucky cabin.
Clay Rogers said that in 1994, weeks before the infamous murders, his brother told him about meeting Nicole Brown Simpson.
“They’ve got money, they’re well off and I’m taking her down,” Clay Rogers recalls Glen Rogers saying.
Other family members also said Glen Rogers talked about meeting Simpson’s ex-wife.
In a statement, Goldman’s sister criticized the documentary.
“I am appalled at the level of irresponsibility demonstrated by the network and the producers of this so-called documentary,” Kim Goldman 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.”
Mr. Meoli said Rogers told him that O.J. Simpson paid him to break into Nicole Brown Simpson’s house to steal a pair of $20,000 earrings. Other clues, Mr. Meoli said, were that Rogers drove a white pickup for his construction job — a white pickup was seen near the Simpson house on the day of the murders — and that a second bloody footprint at the scene was never identified.
“All those things put together a plausible alternative theory,” Mr. Meoli said.
At least one detective who interviewed Rogers, though, said the convicted killer is lying in a misguided effort to get off death row.
Rejected by ABC Family, comedian turns to Internet
Jake Sasseville had it all planned out: He’d been working for a year on a TV show based on his life, and he was going to get it on the air in a unique fashion — by buying network time.
He purchased eight 30-minute blocks on ABC Family to launch “Delusions of Grandeur.” It was set to debut at 1 a.m. Oct. 4, but the network pulled it two weeks before, Mr. Sasseville said.
“I got a ton of emails from the legal team who all of a sudden chose that the show was not going to air,” the 26-year-old said of the show, which has found on home on Blip, a website for original series. “And this was after I paid for the time.”
ABC Family, which is owned by Disney, said in a statement that Mr. Sasseville’s show didn’t air “because it did not meet our standards for programming for time buy purchases.” According to The Associated Press, the network didn’t provide details. Mr. Sasseville received a refund.
