“I am appalled at the level of irresponsibility demonstrated by the network and the producers of this so-called documentary,” Kim Goldman, Ronald’s sister said at the time. “This is the first time we are hearing about this story, and considering that their ‘main character,’ Glen Rogers, confessed to stabbing my brother and Nicole to death, you would think we would be in the loop.”
The documentary producers came to Hamilton in 2012 to find out more about the death of 15-year-old Carl Ray Taylor in 1973, who some believe was Rogers’ first murder victim.
Rogers, now 56, has been on death row since he was 34. According to the Death Penalty Information Center, the average time spent on death row in 2013 was 15½ years.
