Ten years after Mr. Rogers' death, one rumor about the lovable TV star still persists: That behind those innocent grandpa sweaters ... beat the heart of a cold-blooded assassin!

Yeah, it's total BS. Or is it? TMZ investigates.

Btw, if tmz says it its total BS & that they will investigate. Why don't they investigate first? Guess that would be to hard. They would rather have the first scoop. They have been burned many times doing that too.

Though Mr. Rogers had a good career, Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood was better.

Having grown up and lived in Pittsburgh I can assure you there is some truth to the rumor, it is not completely false. Some people want the rumor to go away or stay a rumor, but most of the rumor is correct.

I remember hearing this when I was in boot camp 25 years ago. Seemed unbelievable - especially the part about him wearing long sleeves to cover his tattoos. But I always wanted it to be true.

Gosh I watched that show every day. I remember he took so long to change his sweater and shoes while he sang that damn song. He probably was some kind of psycho. The thought is pretty cool anyway. Speedy delivery!!!
