Film says Glen Rogers killed Simpson, Goldman

NEW YORK, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- A documentary to air on Investigation Discovery says serial killer Glen Rogers butchered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in Los Angeles in 1994.

Former football great and occasional actor O.J. Simpson was acquitted of killing his ex-wife and her friend. No one else has been tried for the double slaying. Simpson is now in prison for an unrelated armed robbery.

The New York Post said the ID documentary "My Brother the Serial Killer" focuses on death row inmate Rogers, who is suspected of killing as many as 80 people, including, the documentary says, Simpson and Goldman.

The film said Rogers admitted to a criminal profiler and family members he killed Simpson and Goldman nearly 20 years ago. In addition to his confessions, receipts show Rogers had been working construction near the scene of the crime shortly before the two were stabbed to death, the Post said.

Rogers, who also seemed aware of details about the killings no one else knew, said O.J. Simpson paid him to break into his ex-wife's house and steal a pair of $20,000 earrings, the newspaper reported.

Rogers also alleges Simpson told him to kill "the bitch" if necessary, the newspaper said.

The film is to air Wednesday.

The Post did not say if authorities are officially investigating Rogers as a suspect in the deaths of Simpson and Goldman.

'GMA's' Robin Roberts home after virus battle in hospital

NEW YORK, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- "Good Morning America" anchor Robin Roberts says she has returned home after a week in the hospital where she was battling a virus.

Roberts, 51, is a breast cancer survivor who underwent a bone-marrow transplant to treat the rare blood disorder, myelodysplastic syndrome, in September.

"Our immune systems usually take care of a virus like this ... but mine is only 59 days old," Roberts wrote in an online post Monday about recovering from the virus after her surgery.

"Physically I felt fine but being back in the hospital took an emotional toll on me," Roberts said. "The wonderful doctors, nurses and support staff lifted my spirits. ... It was comforting seeing them again."

Roberts left the hospital last Friday night, Poeple.com said Monday.
