You Won’t Believe Who ‘The Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson’ Film Is Claiming Actually Killed Her
A new film on the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman offers yet another theory on the death of O.J. Simpson’s former wife. The major twist, according to the film starring Mena Suvari? O.J. didn’t do it.
Fictionally told from the viewpoint of Nicole Brown Simpson, the film, which opens in theaters and starts streaming on Jan. 10, 2020, introduces another player into the night of June 12, 1994.
Find out who the film is controversially suggesting killed Nicole Brown Simpson.
Here’s who the film says killed Nicole and Ron
The new film basically states that Glen Rogers, nicknamed The Casanova Killer and The Cross Country Killer, was the person who killed both Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman. According to People, in the film, Nicole Brown Simpson hires Glen Rogers to do some work on her condominium. They become intimate and eventually Rogers begins stalking Simpson and eventually killing her.
Rogers is currently on death row for two murders and has confessed to close to 70 murders, including that of Simpson and Goldman, telling his brother Clay Rogers that O.J. Simpson hired him to steal jewelry from Nicole and if he had to kill her, to do so.
This isn’t the first time Rogers’ name has been bandied about as the possible killer in the infamous crime. Clay Rogers narrated the 2012 Investigation Discovery documentary entitled My Brother the Serial Killer.
“I’m absolutely certain that my brother Glen killed Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman,” Clay said in the film. “I know my brother did it because I’ve seen proof that he was there.”
‘One, and only one, person murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman’
Although the victims’ families haven’t yet made any statements regarding the new film, their reaction to the 2012 My Brother the Serial Killer says it all.
Ron Goldman’s father, Fred Goldman, rejected that documentary’s suggestion that anyone other than Orenthal James Simpson killed his 25-year-old son in 1994.
“The overwhelming evidence at the criminal trial proved that one, and only one, person murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman,” Goldman told CNN in 2012 with the release of Clay Rogers’ documentary.
“That person is O.J. Simpson and not Glen Rogers. The fact that O.J. Simpson was acquitted was a travesty of justice that tarnished the criminal justice system. . . A [hundred thousand] screaming Glen Rogers, packed in the Los Angeles Coliseum, all confessing in unison, would not absolve O.J. Simpson of the murders he committed.”
The director speaks
The director of The Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson, Daniel Farrands, spoke to The Daily Beast this week about how important it was for him to keep the victims front and center of the film, to not forget that, in the end, it was two real people who lost their lives.
“Although the movie presents a controversial ‘what-if’ scenario involving a dangerous man who claimed to have entered Nicole’s life shortly before the murders, we don’t change the outcome of the story, and we certainly don’t exonerate anyone,” Farrands said.
“. . . I hope the film . . . presents Nicole and Ron as human beings whose lives were unjustly and horrifically snuffed out on the night of June 12, 1994.”
