It’s been 20 years since Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were murdered and even though he was found innocent, OJ Simpson has been the butt of a lot of jokes over the past two decades because no one believed his hands were clean. Now it looks like the glove may have actually not fit.
Business Insider called to light a new book by private investigator William C. Dear titled O.J. Is Innocent And I Can Prove It. Of course, a lot of people might just scoff at the title and go right on believing Simpson is a guilty man now serving time for other crimes committed in recent years, but never for the murder. However, Dear may be on to something.
In his book, Dear claims to have evidence that suggests Simpson’s son, Jason, is the one who murdered Goldman, and his father’s wife “in a killing rage.” As B.I. put it, Dear basically did his own new trial and investigation and “aimed to subvert false assumption made by the LAPD.”
Since Simpson was found not guilty way back when, this book isn’t going to change anything from a legal standpoint. However, Dear’s goal is to clear the former Buffalo Bills star’s name, although that will be very difficult, especially considering Simpson has been in trouble with the law multiple times since then and is currently behind bars because of a Las Vegas robbery.
But although most people will point to Simpson’s weird behavior during the trial and investigation of the 1994 murders, Dear is now suggesting it was because his son was guilty, but he wanted to protect him. Believable? We’ll see.
