I wonder if OJ's lawyers have been keeping track of all the trouble, sometimes violent trouble, former head injured ball players get into? Mitigating circumstances in regards to his violent behaviour at the Florida hotel?

It's tough to prove.  It's not definitive until after death.  But good catch though.  I didn't even think of that one.

I think it's actually appalling that he could be determined not responsible (I refuse to use the words 'innocent' because if his DNA along with another previously unrelated person's DNA is found, he's still not 'innocent') in the civil case.

And it's not like any of the recipients of the award in the civil case have received much..the Goldman's, 22 years later, have still only received less than 1% of what was awarded them in the civil case.

 

I see where you're coming from, though....

If a possible accomplice did the stabbings then they could possibly not find his DNA on the knife.  OJ could still be found responsible though since the circumstantial evidence was pretty solid against him.

Oh, OJ Simpson is guilty as h*ll, but I've always thought that he may have had an accomplice.  Killing two people at once would be tough.  You'd think one could get away while the other was getting murdered.

Always thought that Kato Kalen knew a little more than he was saying.

A bizarre footnote to the OJ Simpson.   If it did turn out to be the knife, it points to further incompetence of the police for not finding it in the first place.

 

As for OJ himself, the public never seem to get enough of him.   They certainly will see a lot more of him since he is eligible for parole in 2017.

Still an open case.  If they find foreign DNA on it, another person will be arrested and tried for the murder.  Then OJ's civil trial "conviction" can be overturned and he'll get to keep all of his future earnings instead of it going to the Goldman family.

Not going to happen. You know how much money they'd owe OJ if it was found out he was actually innocent and a police officer held back evidence? They would owe him hundreds of millions of dollars.

The evidence was held/found 3 years after the criminal trial was over.  The knife was found in '98 and the criminal trial was over in '95.  The civil suit ended in '96.  At best, the LAPD could be sued for civil damages over the civil trial judgment which would come in at a 10-15 million dollar settlement at most.

 

The city and LAPD won't risk getting in trouble for $10-15 million.  They get sued for that kind of money every few years because their cops suck.  Just look at the Rampart scandal.  They took it up the wazoo for that.

Actually, OJ was found not guilty.  So how can the cops be sued when OJ was found not guilty of the murders?   Cops and the prosecutors can be sued only if they wrongly convicted the person on trial.   Then they can be sued as we saw in many cases where the government paid huge sums to compensate the wrongly convicted.

He was held liable for their deaths in the civil suit.  If the knife could have exonerated him in that then he wouldn't have had to pay for the judgment that was lodged against him.

Shouldn't be a problem as OJ hasn't pay a penny of the judgement anyways.

You need to do a little bit of research before posting (not saying this to be a jerk).  He's gotten very little money, but he has gotten some.  He was able to sell OJ's Heisman trophy among other collectibles. 

 

Compared to what he owes, it's a joke, but they have gotten more than a penny.

Looks like the knife that they found wasn't the murder weapon.  They said that the knife that was found was a relatively small knife.  If I remember right, during the trial the coroner said that the murder weapon was a large knife. 

 

If there was an accomplice, he can breathe easier now.

Dateline NBC has a special tonight on the OJ Simpson case tonight starting at 9:00 pm.

Alf got really tied up in the whole OJ trial in '94.  Over the next few years, Alf read every book written on the subject (mostly). One point always came up - OJ having the time to kill both his ex and the Goldman boy, and get back to his house, hiding bloody evidence like his clothing, and cleaning his vehicle.  There should have been A LOT more of a blood evidence trail, given the timing.  Alf firmly believes OJ is guilting, but that he DID NOT ACT ALONE.

OJ didn't kill them. If the glove doesn't fit... Anyway, there is a psycho killer Glen Rogers who confessed to being hired by OJ to steal Nicole's jewelry. He said Goldman just got in the way. And he killed Nicole. He is a serial killer and that's just him. So OJ might have not paid him to murder, but it got out of hand, hence the Bronco slow chase. He felt guilty. http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/20/real-killer-found-in-oj-simpson-case/
