OJ Simpson didn’t ‘act alone,’ says former manager

(NewsNation) — O.J. Simpson’s ex-manager claims the former football star did not “act alone” in the killings that a jury acquitted him of.

In an interview with NewsNation’s Elizabeth Vargas, Norman Pardo said Simpson had help in the killings of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

“O.J. was with the guy who [committed the murders] at the beginning, but after O.J. got cut, he ran out and left,” said Pardo. “So, O.J. wasn't really there for all the murders; he was only there and just got cut. The other guy did most of it.”

That man, according to Pardo, was serial killer Glen Rogers.

Rogers, also known as "The Cross Country Killer" or "The Casanova Killer," was convicted of first-degree murder at two separate trials in the deaths of two women [the first in Florida in 1997 and the second in California in June 1999]. He remains a suspect in numerous other murders throughout the United States.

“He [Rogers] was there, and our investigators found all the evidence, including where he worked and where he lived,” Pardo said.

Pardo claims Goldman and Rogers got into a fight, during which Simpson received the cut on his hand and left.

“That's why O.J. never believed he did it [committed the murders]. Because he had already stepped out of the gate by the time it happened," Pardo said.

A criminal jury found Simpson not guilty of murder in 1995, but a separate civil trial jury found him liable in 1997 for the deaths and ordered him to pay $33.5 million to relatives of Brown and Goldman.
