The O.J. Simpson trial created quite a stir not only in the American justice system, but likewise, in the entire country and the whole world. The former NFL superstar, who was accused of murdering his ex-wife and Ron Goldman, went through a very rough experience. Eventually, he was acquitted of all the charges.
While the entire world held its breath all throughout the O.J. Simpson trial, a knife, which was reportedly discovered in his Rockingham estate, has once again sparked the debate whether O.J. was indeed innocent or if he was really guilty.
According to a report from TMZ, a construction worker was the one who supposedly found the knife buried on the perimeter of O.J.?s former estate. TMZ?s sources then reveal that the construction worker turned over the knife to an LAPD police office also disclosing to the cop where he found the knife.
The policeman, who actually worked in the traffic division, was off duty at that time since he was working security for a movie shoot in the house across the street from O.J.?s Rockingham estate. TMZ?s sources then go on to say that the cop took the knife home and simply kept it for years.
The only thing, which led to the knife resurfacing several years later, is that the cop who kept it told a friend working in the Robbery Homicide Division of the LAPD about the knife after he had retired. He had wanted to get the record number of the case as he planned to engrave it in the frame since he intended to place the knife in it to display in his home. Eventually, word got up to his friend?s superiors and they demanded the retired policeman to surrender the knife which he did.
According to CNN, the LAPD announced that a knife was allegedly found on O.J.?s former estate, confirming TMZ?s scoop. Reports also indicate that the knife is currently being tested by the LAPD for fingerprints and hair. While the results have not yet been released, it raises some questions on whether O.J. was innocent or guilty of the murder of his ex-wife and Ron Goldman.
Could the discovered knife actually be the murder weapon? And if yes, who exactly used it? These are just some of the questions that we hope to get answers to very soon.
