OJ Didn't Do It
That's according to a new documentary. The movie debuts on the "Investigation Discovery Channel" Wednesdy night and claims that a death row inmate has confessed to the killings of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman in 1994.

The profiler says Rogers was supposed to steal a pair of diamond earrings Simpson had given to Nicole, and that OJ warned Rogers he might have to kill her.
