KIM GOLDMAN

Author/ Podcast Host /  OJ Simpson Murder Case

Some of you may know me as Ron Goldman’s sister. I am. And very proud of that fact.

But I am also an advocate … a writer … a mother … a friend… a daughter … a hockey, basketball and football fan …a radio show host … a shoe enthusiast … and sometimes a philanthropist. I live a very full life, despite the painful road I traveled to get here.

Before my brother was brutally killed in 1994, I was studying to be a child psychologist. After his death and subsequent trials, I left that goal behind and just did what I could to make it through each day and to slowly begin to rebuild my shattered life.

The highly successful "To Catch a Predator" series, which ran on Dateline NBC from 2004-2008, has been syndicated on MSNBC and other cable networks all over the world. My new series will reflect the changes in the social media landscape and the new generation of connected electronic devices. With this new investigation, we will once again raise awareness of the ongoing threat of sexual predators targeting underage children.When "To Catch a Predator" first launched, my crew and I implemented groundbreaking hidden camera techniques to capture the charged confrontations of predators. In what they thought were the homes of their victims (actually decoys posing as minors), we interviewed these unsuspecting men. Working in collaboration with local law enforcement, the 12 investigations led to the uncovering of about 300 predators, including trusted professionals from teachers to clergy to military men. Over 80% pleaded guilty or no contest and received punishment up to 24 years in prison.​

DAVID RUDOLF

Netflix ' The Staircase' Murder case attorney

In 2001, novelist Michael Peterson's wife died, and he claimed she perished after falling down the stairs at their home.

JUAN MARTINEZ

Prosecutor Jodi Arias Murder Trial 2008

Juan Martinez, the fiery prosecutor who convicted notorious murderess Jodi Arias for the disturbing killing of Travis Alexander, speaks for the first time about the shocking investigation and sensational trial that captivated the nation.

 

Through two trials, America watched with bated breath as Juan Martinez fought relentlessly to convict Jodi Arias of Murder One for viciously stabbing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander to death. What emerged was a story wrought with sex, manipulation, and deceit that stunned the public at every turn. Arias, always playing the wronged and innocent woman, changed her story continually as her bizarre behavior surrounding the crime and its aftermath came to light. Unwavering, Arias and her defense team continued to play off the salacious details of the case until she was finally found guilty and—controversially—sentenced to life behind bars
