The so-called “Trial of the Century” of former NFL player O.J. Simpson for the double murder of his ex-wife and Ron Goldman was one of the biggest media events of the 1990s. Now, Simpson’s back in the news after a decade-old interview was finally aired featuring Simpson speaking hypothetically about he would have killed them.
In 2006 O.J. Simpson landed a publishing deal for a book called If I Did It , in which O.J. Simpson walks the reader through how he would have HYPOTHETICALLY killed Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in 1994.
After intense public backlash, the book was canceled but FOX still recorded an interview with Simpson where he walks through the, again TOTALLY HYPOTHETICAL, scenario where he killed his wife and her boyfriend.
FOX aired the 2006 interview with Simpson last night and it… really seems like he may have done it!
In the video Simpson talks about how he HYPOTHETICALLY heard from his friend “Charlie” that some unspecified stuff was going down at Nicole Brown Simpson’s which prompted him to HYPOTHETICALLY say, “Whatever is going on it’s gotta stop!”
That lead Simpson and “Charlie” to HYPOTHETICALLY get in the car and drive to Nicole Brown Simpson’s house where he confronted his ex-wife and Ron Goldman, suspecting the two of dating. In the interview, he claims Nicole “fell” and that Ron Goldman got into a “karate stance” which prompted Simpson to say “You think you can kick my ass?”
By this point in the interview O.J. Simpson has dropped any “HYPOTHETICAL” caveats and just starts speaking in first person. “I remember I grabbed the knife,” he says, “I do remember that portion.” Then he realizes he’s not speaking HYPOTHETICALLY and starts to laugh, saying they need to back up. Oops! He also claims he did, in fact, drop a glove at the scene so there goes that whole thing.
In addition to DNA evidence, the glove, shoe prints, and a long history of beating his wife, we now have what appears to be O.J. Simpson’s confession.
