(Newser) – A new documentary backs OJ Simpson up in his claim that he did not murder Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Rather, the documentary alleges, Glen Rogers killed them. Who's Glen Rogers? The New York Post calls him "one of America's least-known serial killers." It seems Rogers bragged about killing 50 people, but his family didn't believe him until his brother—a major participant in the documentary My Brother the Serial Killer—found a body near the family cabin and turned Rogers in. Rogers' family also didn't believe him when he claimed to have been "partying" with Brown Simpson just before her death.

He told his family she was rich and threatened that he would "take her down," and receipts from that time period do show he was in the vicinity. But according to the documentary, OJ isn't entirely innocent: He had supposedly paid Rogers to break into Brown Simpson's house and steal some pricey earrings OJ had given her, and told Rogers to kill "the bitch" if he needed to. Rogers reportedly admitted to the murders to a criminal profiler after he was already on death row for other murders. But Goldman's dad tells TMZ this is all just a publicity stunt for the documentary, and he still believes OJ killed his son. Click to watch a clip from the film.

OJ is the kind of guy who invites trouble to land on his own head. Where is he now? In Nevada's remote Lovelock Correctional Center, after being convicted of a host of charges, including kidnapping, armed robbery, and felony assault. The Law of Karma seems to be operating correctly.

I believe OJ was involved or his psychotic sous chef of a son (who carries professional carving knives at all times) committed the murders. His son is the same size perhaps a little taller, psychotic and was also obsessed with Nicole and hated OJ for divorcing his mother. The son also threatened to cut up his ex-girlfriend with his knives. Unfortunately, Ron Goldman was at the wrong place at the wrong time. However, in the end OJ is where he belongs. I would believe the son was involved before this lunatic trying to cash in on a documentary and torture the Brown and Goldman family by bringing this up again. Shame on him!

Even if this is true, he still should be charged with Conspiracy to commit murder, and Murder for hire.
