BY T.H. Johnson, former Investigative Team Coordinator, OMIG
TO THE INVESTIGATIVE GROUP O.M.I.G. (OCEAN MEDICAL INVESTIGATIVE GROUP)
Thank you for your 24 years of service, and to Dr. H.S. Johnson, and members of the Chairman’s table for the fine support they have given to this organization and its investigative department.
Dr. Henry S. Johnson, Chairman of the Ocean Medical Investigative Group (OMIG) at his office in Los Angeles, wrote the first book challenging the conflicting reports of the medical examiners, one was under pressure to lie for the prosecution the other doing so apparently volutarily when brought in to replace the other in the medical examination of the murdered victims, Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson.
OMIG’s symbol above began to receive broad notoriety after the documentary they produced SERPENTS RISING screened both nationally and internationally in the 13th Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles in February of 2005 and Berlin Germany’s XIX Annual International Black Cinema Festival in August of 2005. The publishing of another book by its chief investigator T.H. Johnson brought people previously afraid to speak out about what they were forced to coverup to come forward to reveal how Simpson had been targeted and his professional career destroyed. The racial animus and hatred surrounding the 1995 trial virtually assured him a jail sentence if he did not stay out of the lime light. Simpson would ultimately be sentenced to 33 years in prison by a Las Vegas Court in 2008. However, the truth surrounding the backroom on-going dealings in that trial have yet to be disclosed as well.
As we mark this years 24th anniversary of the creation of the investigative organization that evolved from the OJ Simpson trial, OMIG, we also mark this date of October 3rd, 2020 as the 25th anniversary of the jury’s acquittal of O.J. Simpson and a date of possibly one of the most dangerous investigative failures that has taken place in this nation’s history; the failure of the mainstream press and electronic media to hold government and law enforcement officials accountable. The failure of the mainstream press to do any follow up due diligence, or any meaningful investigative journalism, has predictably contributed to the racial animus, strife, social fragmentation, and polarization we are presently experiencing in our nation today under Donald Trump’s Presidential administration.
The so called legitimate press gave way to tabloid journalism as if that is all that a condemned black man was entitled to receive. Their actions have only accrued to the benefit of our foreign adversaries and the limited hard core white supremacists who may have fallen victim to foreign intrigue as well in this matter where the former would gain from our downfall. This may have been an ongoing attempt since the collapse of the Soviet Union around 1988 and in conjunction with our publicly smug reply by President Ronald Reagan to Gorbachov to tear down those walls. That slap in the face at the Soviets decline may have been the injection triggering the former KGB officer, Vladimir Putin, in his long held desire to bring America to its knees. Possibly by activating white look-a-like sleeper cells in the US he may be on the verge of succeeding. Racial animus is a valuable asset to some, and as we’ve now seen has caused this nation and this present President to take his eye off the ball in terms of governance. He has misrepresented the dangers of a fatal disease that has killed closed to a quarter of a million Americans within the last 6 months, that is rapidly approaching more deaths than all of the foreign wars for which the U.S. has been engaged combined.
The mainstream press failed to do its job 25 years ago, and still fails right up to the present, in examining and re-examining the evidence cited by corrupt officials to fortify their ragged charges of guilt against the former NFL football hall of famer and sports icon, O.J. Simpson back in 1994-95. The independent investigative organization above, OMIG, for the past 24 years, has been privy to certain documents because of the continuous due diligence of our investigative department and the standards expected of each field investigator. The research that this organization has applied to this important investigation was done because of the predictable impact we believed would be unleashed upon America within 20 years as a result of official malfeasance, i.e. the murders by police of a plethora of young black men and women falsely behind a badge while acting under the color of authority we predicted that could become a residual effect of the racial animus intentionally promoted in the wake of the Simpson criminal trial acquittal.
However, not to digress, the question that has always perplexed us is where has the mainstream media and press been regarding this evidence and information? The mainstream press is the only entity for the last 400 years that developed the power to keep a corrupt and errant governmental apparatus in check and thus has developed over that time what is referred to as the power of the 4th estate. Since up to the late 18th century Emperors/Kings/Queens, Bankers, the Nobility and Military Generals possessed the consummate power in Europe. The press had not evolved to have such capacity to examine government activities and report its malfeasance on a daily basis to the public prior to the end of the 18th century. However, near the end of the 20th century, the 4th Estate, mainstream press didn’t do their due diligence in the Simpson case, in fact they miserably have failed. The question is why? We know a multiplicity of things regarding evidence in that case that the press should have known as well? What impacted them in failing to do their job? Was the profit motive of advertising dollars surrounding this case too tempting to overlook, or did their senior editors simply conclude what has been opined when a black is accused of a crime, that the black individual must be guilty. That is a mindset akin to those who failed to speak up in regard to the epidemic of public lynchings in this country a century ago that deprived individuals of due process. The massive irregularities associated with the Simpson evidence placed that demand that the press examine the evidence and allegations of wrongdoing but they simply left it alone, and in most cases trumpeted the lies of the perpetrators alleging Simpson’s guilt in tabloid fashion.
We know that this man below, this serial killer of as many as 70 women, Glen Rogers, was on the radar of a local LA deputy DA and other law enforcement officers in Los Angeles regarding the murders in the Simpson case. Once we examined his death row appeal file they consealed in California it required our seeking more intimate knowledge from Rogers so we contacted him on death row in Florida in a hail Mary attempt by sharing with him information that California hid, that Florida overlooked, that might have prevented him from receiving the death sentence. He has continued to communicate forthrightly with OMIG investigators since 2000. He confirms much of the redacted areas in one of the consealed case files that he was in close proximity to Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole. Her record indicated that she was moving often with shady people in a fast lane she should in all probability have avoided. The Colorado connections to the Mezzaluna Restaurant that the FBI has redacted in certain documents raises curiosity, since several of the Mezzaluna employees and management had Colorado connections. We know from FBI documents someone they went the extra mile out of the approximate 50 retail stores selling Bruno Magli shoes purchased those size 12 shoes with the SILGA U2887 soles that do not fit O.J.’s feet. Nor do they appear to fit Glen Rogers’ foot either since they appear to be too large but at least his foot in blue fits in the size 46/size 12 shoe sole, whereas Simpson’s toes, arches, and heel extend outside of the expensive shoe soles as seen in the green foot tracing belonging to O.J. Simpson. This was just one area where a number of FBI agents chose to engage in lying to aggrandize their own personal careers by helping the state prosecutors convict an innocent man, Simpson. However, according to FBI whistleblowers talking to OMIG this would not be the first time and that there was a history of some of the bureau’s agents doing so on a regular basis.
L-R, Green foot is the tracing OMIG attained from O.J. Simpson and the blue foot tracing was attained by OMIG from Florida inmate Glen Rogers. The FBI agent called to testify in the 1995 Simpson trial never chose to measure O.J.’s foot but should have been suspicious upon viewing the shoeprints seen in the 11 and 1/2 inch square side walk tiles at the Bundy murder site.
Of course California officials in L.A. County according to statements in certain documents it seems were looking for a rapid execution of Rogers by the hands of Florida prison officials. That way any connection between him and Simpson’s ex-wife would remain buried. Unfortunately, one of their politically active deputy DA’s was able to get Rogers off of death row, a rare occurance anywhere, and returned to Los Angeles to stand trial for the murder of Sandra Gallagher where he underwent additional pretrial medical examinations again. OMIG investigators have interacted with Rogers and have received a plethora of letters from him in response to our inquiries over the last 20 years that he’s been on death row. He’s on death row in Florida for the murder of 1 of 4 women he stabbled after running from California back in 1995.
We even know the psychiatric disease Rogers has that officials have continued to conceal for the last 25 years. We at OMIG understand why corrupt law enforcement officals both at the state and federal levels will hide and have hidden evidence in order to attain a conviction and/or condemnation of an innocent victim. They do it for their own personal career advancements, and in this case as it related to state actors their personal pecuniary gain. However, what does the press have to gain from failing to examine such irregularities in evidence and unprofessional conduct? We know and have read the official sealed case files concerning this man, BA-109525 and case file 97-222 regarding this man’s relationship with Simpson’s ex-wife and his medical psychiatric condition. So you cannot say it doesn’t exist. The only question we have is why don’t you, the Mainstream Press and Media, know the case file numbers as well and why have you not read it yourselves, or maybe you have and have just chosen to continue to promote a self-serving false narrative with dangerous racial undertones?
Due to the damage associated with the press’s lack of due diligence, the chickens have hatched and have long now come home to roost as we predicted years ago. Your allowing and promulgating the racial animus that has entered into the mainstream of public discourse in this nation surrounding the Simpson case has in all probability contributed to irreparable damage as we now struggle to right a listing ship of state associated with this present Presidential administration accused of instigating racial animus itself. Our hope is to regain and maintain the stability of a so called democratic republic and keep from allowing racial animus to catapault this nation into autocratic despotic rule……Unfortunately, the above destruction caused is in conjunction with the mainstream press’s lack of integrity that recklessly engaged in destroying this man, Simpson’s professional career.

Both of the Brown’s are now deceased. Is there any way to get the phone records or are they really sealed
We had the discussion with OMIG officials after the publicizing of the death of Juditha Brown last month but there is little motivation presently to pursue them by all parties, meaning all OMIG staff and in particular OJ Simpson who has the standing to pursue or members of his family like his children Justin and Sydney. Those pursuing the records outside of that family group OMIG believes would likely generate suspicion and probably increase a heightened lack of cooperation. The original phone company has been sold twice, GTE became Verizon and their landline division was later sold to Frontier within the last five years. However, OMIG believes all things are now digital so they believe that the records exist in a cyber universe that a forensic computer search could possibly retrieve. However, in 1999 and 2000 when OMIG was pressing for these records to be replaced, employees who worked for GTE in accessing old records encountered an alarm system protection of those records that almost caused the termination of a GTE employee who was given 30 days with pay to go home and think about their job and being fired after 28 years. Her confidence to delve into this area was impacted and she chose not to communicate at all regarding the subject, and was not heard from again until possibly 3 years later after retiring. OMIG understood she was still curious about those records but only as an outside bystander and no help to providing access to the records. The official alibi in protecing those records falls under California Public Utilities Code 2891-2894.10 requiring that no public utility company shall make available to anyone without the permission of the utility owner, a written consent……..
Thank you for the information. I know OMIG fought hard to get the phone records and were denied each time in the 2000’s, so I don’t blame you guys for not really wanting to pursue them. I watched an interview with OJ just before he went to prison for the Vegas incident and he was talking about how he basically gave up trying to clear his name or something to that effect after you guys failed to get the phone records. But now that Juditha is dead, I really don’t understand why he doesn’t at least try one more time to get the phone records. He’s an old man and isn’t getting any younger. I also don’t understand why his kids won’t pursue them either? I know Sydney, for example, believes in OJ’s innocence and doesn’t communicate with the Brown sisters because of the things they say about her dad. I really think the phone records is something that should be pursued. Has OMIG communicated with the Simpson’s recently regarding this subject?
Well, we are all getting older but I don’t think that that sense of pessimism or lethargy to not want to pursue the records is institutional throughout OMIG but OMIG is not as solid as it was 25 years ago because most of the top officials are in their 70s as well. Furthermore, Dr. HSJohnson is the only one from OMIG who communicates directly from time to time with Simpson because he was his official medical doctor while he was imprisoned, and would fly up to Sacremento and he and his secretary would drive OJ’s sister and her husband out to the northern Nevada Prison at Lovelock. We think it could be a bit of shyness on the part of OJ himself because OJ is still on parole on that unjust 33 year sentence they gave him. So, he may feel that he still has his head in the lion’s mouth and may want to ease it out before taking a stick to them. So if that is the case we don’t blame him but neither do I blame those who are with OMIG who have grown weary. His children have been programmed to stay out of the way of the beast, the bureaucracy, as well. At least that is what I think, but I know that his daughter Sydney must still have the same degree of curiosity when THJohnson and DocJohnson first started visiting Simpson in the late 90s and showing him the evidence of malfeasance that they had uncovered. Though Simpson would send her to her room she would sneek back into the kitchen and listen to what was being said. However, we remember her as an athletically built child of around 12 years old, recent photos appear to show the stresss that she has probably been subjected privately by the public which can be awfully cruel, especially for the younger kids simply trying to make their way in this world.
By the way, F. Lee Bailey and Pat McKenna are releasing a book in 2021 titled The Truth About the O.J. Simpson Trial: By the Architect of the Defense.
Well, that should be interesting, since if I were any of them I would still keep trying to distance myself from the Simpson trial because both sides of attorneys engaged in malfeasance potentially amounting to Obstruction of Justice which could put them away under what amounts to a life sentence, since the statute of limitation does not begin to run on conspiracy until conspiracy is proven. I can tell you that they don’t know what OMIG has, and since 2016 retired members of the FBI have been talking to and presenting evidence to OMIG that indicates their own malfeasance in this case. They also indicate the concealment of names of persons of interest out of Colorado which they asked repeated questions and went further than any other state an the 48 retail stores who sold purchasers those infamous size 12 Bruno Magli Lorenzo model shoes. As you can see on this site, photos of a green foot, which is a tracing of Simpson’s foot that extends beyond the perimeter of the shoe sole on 4 sides, as well as the toe. However, the person who purchased a couple of pair of those size 12 Lorenzo model Bruno Magli’s the FBI talked to the Colorado DMV to determine that they had a driver’s license in that state, as well as a residence in that state. Colorado is a state of interest to OMIG because Ron Goldman traveled to that state, Nicole Brown Simpson met the operations manager, Keith Zlomsowitch, at the Mezzaluna in Aspen, Colorado. When he came to oversee all three west coast branches of the Mezzaluna, Aspen, CO, Beverly Hills and Brentwood, he lived in the condo with Nicole and her kids on Gretna Green. Then you have a couple of other employees of the Brentwood Mezzaluna we believe had traveled to and received training at the Aspen branch of the Mezzaluna. Then you have the fellow who vouched for Ron Goldman and got him the job at the Brentwood branch of the Mezzaluna, Michael Nigg, he was from outside Denver in the far suburban city of Gunnison, Colorado. Nigg was murdered in a parking lot in Hollywood or that side of town a year after Ron Goldman was murdered. So, that is why it makes the FBI extra mile they went in Colorado interesting to us, the name is redacted but they knew by september 1994 that Simpson’s foot did not fit in those shoes just by examining the accurate police photo measurements of the shoe prints.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Furthermore, since Bailey is referring to himself as the architect of the Simpson defense what type of architectural advice did he give to Cochran for them to go along with keeping the FBI agent, Frederic Whitehurst, off the witness stand who the defense had subpoenaed once they were informed by the USDOJ OIG about his filing of a complaint about another FBI agent committing perjury in the Simpson trial, named Roger Martz? It appears that the defense team cut a deal with the FBI who sent a black lawyer and top FBI negotiator to LA to keep FBI agent Frederic Whitehurst who had been out there 8 days from taking the witness stand and divulging that he had filed in a complaint on behalf of 2 FBI scientists and another agent from the Quantico Laboratory regarding the agent who testified about the blood not being contaminated with EDTA, Agent Roger Martz. Whitehurst’s career had already been damaged for going to the OIG with complaints regarding the sloppiness within the lab, the casual acceptance of the use of racial epitaphs, and the general unprofessional conduct that existed regarding evidence that without serious cross examination of the FBI agents testifying would be used to convict many innocent individuals. The agents who approached Whitehurst to file were tired of the unprofessional conduct as well but still wanted a career within the FBI whereas Whitehurst though a top explosive’s expert, and PHD chemist, had his career reduced to examining paint chips. While Roger Martz had been promoted to Unit Chief of the Chemistry lab even though he had only a B.S. degree in Biology. It appears that according to the complaint filed with the OIG (office of the Inspector General) of the USDOJ, that Martz did not do the research, he absconded with the research that other scientists in the lab had performed and took it back to his office and changed their conclusions in order for his report to align with the prosecution’s charges against Simpson. Martz had done this before and was called out for it in a death row appeal case in Florida where the judge called him utterly incompetent in regard to the mistakes made or an adept charlatan. The FBI was aware of his conduct since Whitehurst had brought it to their attention from that case 7 years earlier, yet they did nothing to dicipline him and allowed him to go on the stand to represent the FBI in the Simpson case where he lied about the blood taken from the gate belonging to Simpson and the blood of Nicole found on socks thrown on Simpson’s bedroom floor both of them contaminated with high lethal concentrations of EDTA, indicating that the blood on each item was planted and did not come directly from the victims bodies at the murder site. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++I wonder does F. Lee Bailey want to admit to knowledge of these things as well whereby, in a letter sent from the FBI to the prosecution on March 01, 1995, the FBI agent, Martz, had he just told the truth instead of obstructing justice regarding the blood contamination could have brought the curtain down on the trial on that date. Also, FBI agent William Bodziak could have assisted in doing so too had he been more honest and forthcoming about the Bruno Magli shoes not fitting OJ’s foot. Instead in a letter dated Sptember 27, 1994 he is writing and pandering to the LA Filed Officer director to approach the LAPD commander over the Simpson investigation and ask him to invite him to come on aboard, even though by that date Bodziak had spent the prior 4 months doing the investigation of shoe prints on his own. It is the perceived credibility of an FBI agent’s testimony that binds the prosecution’s case together. Since no one aggressively cross examines the FBI, they take the witness stand, say what they want and then get down. Some of us at OMIG have felt, now since we have the actual highway data of the I-405 and know that final phone call could not have been made at 09:37 PM rendering that a lie asserted by the prosecution but stipulated to by the defense, as well as the lie the FBI had to protect by negotiating with the defense to keep one FBI agent from testifying against another in the most publicly broadcasted trial of the 20th century and sullying their brand. That was enough leverage, the phony phone records and the lies about the contaminated blood, in our opinion for Cochran to use as leverage to secure the final freedom of one of his first clients who by the time of his release in 1997 had served almost 29 years of incarceration and designated by an international NGO as the longest political prisoner held after the release of Nelson Mandela in South Africa.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Cochran’s client was the former minister of defense for the Southern California Chapter of the Black Panther Party, Elmer “Geronimo” Pratt who was framed by an LA prosecutor, FBI, and Santa Monica police. Whereby the FBI had concealed photos taken of Pratt indicating they had him under surveillance in San Francisco-Oakland at the same time he was being framed by a former LA County Sheriiff’s deputy turned pimp and informer for a murder committed 400 miles away from San Francisco-Oakland in Santa Monica and framing him pursuant to J. Edgar Hoover’s COINTELPRO program targeting by then Black Panther Party members as the greatest threat to the tranquilty of America. Ultimately, for Cochran, this is what we believe the Simpson case was about and why he may have stipulated to lies presented by the prosecution to destroy another black man’s life and professional career, Mr. O.J. Simpson.
Did the late Ron Goldman ever work at West End LA Italian Restaurant “Enzo & Angela”? The owners of this now defunct restaurant included British actress Angela Lansbury daughter “Dierdre Shaw”. Shaw as a teenager had been a member of the Charles Manson “family” with Angela and her husband paying for illicit drugs, foods, cars etc. for the family. But I had heard that before Ron was a waiter at the Mezzaluna he had been the same at “Enzo & Angela”. If true that would really be something. I always said the Simpson trial was dominated (“media wise”) by ex prosecutors of Charles Manson and his girls along with the Church of Scientology where Manson was once a member in good standing.
We are not certain whether he did or not, however, many years ago T.H. Johnson did do research on Goldman’s employment and he was never in one place for any length of time. He had several short term quickie type jobs that appeared, if memory serves us, to not have worked at anyone of them beyond six months. He did that research because of the information he had gotten from neighbors who lived adjacent to the Cheviot Hills Tennis Courts and told T.H. they had complained to the administrators about Ron selling drugs in the Tennis Court parking lot. At that time he discovered that Ron had an extensive criminal record of that allowed to be seen where he ran up incessant reckless driving charges, his license was suspended, and he had outstanding warrants for his arrest for failure to appear for arraignment. Hence, the mystery aside from his criminal case file being protected by the law protecting confidential informants in California, was how he could get employment at all with outstanding warrants still hanging over him? The mezzaluna would be his last job from Febrary 1994 to June 12, 1994, a matter of about 4 months employment which was in line with the amount of time he spent at other jos as well.
