What We Learned from OJ Simpson's Hypothetical Double Murder Confession

Adjust Comment Print

"This guy Charlie shows up, a guy who I recently became friends with", said Simpson. "I really want to tell people what was going on in my relationship with Nicole leading to that night". At the night of the murder, Charlie and Simpson went to Nicole's house and after Brown came outside, she fell and got hurt. "I think Charlie had followed this guy in-wanted to make sure there was no problem and he brought the knife", Simpson said. Fox had planned on airing the interview 12 years ago but scrapped the project, reportedly because of public outrage over the book Simpson wrote about the murders, Variety reported.

"What kind of stuff?" he's asked.

It doesn't sound hypothetical at all here, and didn't to Regan at the time, either.

The original prosecutors objected to the event too, and the objections were a little more substantial than Regan credits with Camerota.

Correction: An earlier version of this story said Fox News had broadcast the Simpson special.

But Simpson's attorney Malcolm LaVergne claimed Regan was leading Simpson through the interview simply to push book sales.

Kane suffered two ankle injuries last season and missed 14 matches as a result - the last nearly 12 months ago to the day. Harry Kane limped off with a suspected ankle injury in Tottenham's Premier League match at Bournemouth on Sunday.

The book was eventually published after a court awarded the rights to victim Ron Goldman's family, who had won a successful civil wrongful death claim against him. During the trial, Darden believed if Simpson would try on the glove, the demonstration would be a pivotal moment in the case.

After the interviews were originally conducted, Regan, who was the publisher at News Corp. -owned HarperCollins, saw her book deal withdrawn amid backlash over the prospective book and a TV special Fox planned to air.

This interview, which allegedly contained something resembling a confession from Simpson, wasn't mentioned again for years. The program also featured a panel hosted by Soledad O'Brien, which was interspersed throughout the interview. He added, "I don't think any two people could have been murdered the way they were without everything being covered in blood". "I went to her house and I read her the riot act", he said. "I don't think there's any question in his involvement".

Darden was particularly concerned with Simpson's confession on tape that he himself left the infamous bloody glove at the murder scene. "Simpson Confesses to Murder".

Another clip from the TV special shows him laughing when talking about the murder. Simpson never took the stand during his trial, and the double jeopardy laws prevent the former athlete from being tried twice for the same crime. The answer is probably that he didn't have much to lose. Simpson: "The Lost Confession?" to blunt the debut of castoff "Idol" on ABC and somehow bought the Pro Football Hall of Famer and former sportscaster's occasional, nearly winking and once laughing reference to the account he presented of the 1994 murders and bloody crime scene as "hypothetical".
