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. (More OJ Simpson stories.)
