Documentary says Florida inmate involved in Simpson case

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (AP) -

A documentary about an inmate on Florida's death row says the convicted killer might have been involved in the murder of O.J. Simpson's ex-wife and her friend.
 
The Investigation Discovery show, "My Brother the Serial Killer," will air Wednesday.
 
The film is a look at Glen Rogers, who was convicted by a Florida jury in 1997 for killing a Tampa woman.
 
Rogers was also convicted of murder in California and is a suspect in homicides in several other states.
 
Rogers met Nicole Brown Simpson in 1994 when he was living in Southern California, his family says in the documentary.
 
A criminal profiler in the film says he received paintings by Rogers with clues possibly linking him to the murders of Simpson's ex-wife and her friend, Ronald Goldman.
 
Simpson was accused in those killings but the so-called "trial of the century" in Los Angeles ended with his acquittal in 1995.
 
Simpson never testified at the criminal trial, but memorably demonstrated in court that a glove found near the slaying scene did not fit his hand. He testified at length in a wrongful death trial that led a Los Angeles civil court jury in 1997 to find him liable for damages in the case.
 
In a statement, Goldman's sister criticized the new 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 Rodgers, confessed to stabbing my brother and Nicole to death, you would think we would be in the loop."
 
Simpson is currently serving a prison sentence in Nevada after being convicted in 2008 of leading five men, including two with guns, in a September 2007 confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers and a middleman at a Las Vegas casino-hotel.
