Robert Rand is an Emmy award winning journalist who began covering the Menendez brothers' case for the Miami Herald the day after the killings on August 21,1989. He was in court daily for both trials in 1993-94 and 1995-96 and provided analysis for Court TV, ABC, and CBS News. Rand spent three days interviewing both brothers 2 months after the murders and 5 months before their March 1990 arrest. The Miami Herald published the first speculation that the investigation was focused on them in Dec 1989. Rand's cover story for People Magazine, "A Beverly Hills Paradise Lost," was published March 26, 1990.
In March 1991, Playboy published Rand's article "The Killing of Jose Menendez." The 14,000-word story was the longest article ever published by Playboy. Rand's print work includes stories contributed to Playboy, People, The Guardian, Stern, Grazia, and Tropic, the Sunday magazine of the Miami Herald. He covered the William Kennedy Smith rape trial for Paris Match.
In July 2016, Rand was hired by Wolf Films as a consultant for the development of NBC's eight-hour limited series "Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders" which aired in the fall of 2017. Rand's book, "The Menendez Murders," provided the primary source material for the series. Rand has appeared as a featured interview in dozens of documentaries about the Menendez case, including ABC 20/20's "Truth and Lies: The Menendez Brothers" and Dateline NBC's "Unthinkable: The Menendez Murders," which both aired in 2017.
Rand was awarded a Los Angeles Emmy award for two years of stories at KCOP-TV in L.A. about an illegal immigrant who was wrongly convicted. The stories resulted in the overturning of a ten-year-old conviction and the release of the man from jail. He was a member of the Special Assignment investigative reporting group at CBS 2 in L.A. and the I-Team at KYW TV (Philadelphia) that won a duPont-Columbia Silver Baton Award for a year-long series about wealthy property tax dodgers.
