Report: Knife found on O.J. Simpson property not consistent with murders

Zz03YmMxY2JhNGE0MTJkZTI1ZGE4YWQzODdhNTg5OTk0Yg== AP

Officially, the Los Angeles Police Department isn’t saying much about the knife found on property owned by Hall of Famer O.J. Simpson. Unofficially, someone with the LAPD is talking.

NBC News reports, citing multiple law enforcement sources, reports that the knife is “inconsistent” with the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

Per the report, the knife was found 12 years ago. A construction worker gave it to a retired police officer who was working on a nearby film shoot.

Forensic testing will still be performed on the knife to conclusively rule out its involvement in the 22-year-old killings.

And so this temporary blip in the news cycle will serve no real purpose other than to give some midseason publicity to the FX series devoted to the O.J. Simpson case.

    Thank goodness… For a minute I was starting to think he was guilty…

  2. sonhoodoo says: Mar 4, 2016 7:24 PM

    OJ probably used it for other murders.

  3. vikingforlife says: Mar 4, 2016 7:37 PM

    Oh, more publicity? You mean it hasn’t gotten enough over the past 22 years??

    Johnnie Cochran can go back to resting (in) peacefully.

  5. mcjon22 says: Mar 4, 2016 7:44 PM

    If he was still playing today, he would be facing a 4 game suspension from Roger Goodell.

    Call me a cynic, but this sure sounds like a publicity stunt for the FX series.

    Legally, it wouldn’t matter if this was the murder weapon. Simpson was acquitted at trial, and double jeopardy would bar a re-trial.

    Hmmm. I didn’t realize there were still people that thought Simpson didn’t do it.

    He could still be sued for civil rights violations.

  10. udkidd says: Mar 4, 2016 8:37 PM

    He doesn’t have any money. So it wouldn’t be worth it to sue him anymore.

    Also Probably generated more than a few clicks for the media outlets running multiple articles throughout the day about the knife

    However, it was consistent with slicing a hot dog bun before you put the wiener and condiments in at a backyard barbeque.

  13. jason9696 says: Mar 4, 2016 9:24 PM

    Well that was fun while it lasted. Now only 6 more months until the NFL season begins.

  14. prideof10000lakes says: Mar 4, 2016 9:42 PM

    I won’t rest until I know how the Kardashians feel about the knife….

  15. rcali says: Mar 4, 2016 9:59 PM

    O.J. Already made a statement that that was not the knife he used. The knife he used ended up in the garbage at the airport.

  16. charger383 says: Mar 4, 2016 10:02 PM

    did they guy who found knife and gave to the cop think he was going to keep it as a private trophy or take it to right place in police dept?

  17. patsfan56 says: Mar 4, 2016 10:07 PM

    crickets,,,,

  18. adoombray says: Mar 4, 2016 10:13 PM

    when will the media finally get back to calling blatant publicity stunts blatant publicity stunts?

  19. doggeatdogg says: Mar 4, 2016 10:14 PM

    I hope Mike does a full recap about this knife situation. The cop who found it apparently reported it immediately and LAPD was not interested in it. What he did was morbid but apparently he’s not the bad guy many thought he was. I think the PD blew this.

    Who told you to put the balm on.

    “Now lookey here. . .I see O.J. man, and he am scared! There am cops all over the place. And uh, ba ba booey to y’all.”

  24. dropanotherpassadams says: Mar 4, 2016 11:18 PM

    OJ claims if he did do it ,that was not the type of knife he would use.

  25. nflguru12 says: Mar 4, 2016 11:37 PM

    Where was Trump that night?

  26. youbettercallsaul says: Mar 4, 2016 11:49 PM

    Prolly a p.r. stunt by FX, and FOX. They’d put their own mothers in a red light district if it meant an extra ratings point for them.

  27. kneedragr says: Mar 5, 2016 12:01 AM

    Probably a butter knife, lol.

  28. slick50ks says: Mar 5, 2016 12:30 AM

    Kato did it while on spice.

  29. davikes says: Mar 5, 2016 12:42 AM

    LAPD spokesman “Nothing to see here, move along, nothing to see here. No, we did not completely botch this thing. The knife does not fit. Trust us. Move along, nothing to see here.”

  30. atwatercrushesokoye says: Mar 5, 2016 3:42 AM

    I hope this leads to a rebirth of Kato Kaelin’s career…

  31. samsonight1010 says: Mar 5, 2016 6:34 AM

    I, too, have knives that were not used to murder anybody, good enough for me, OJ must be innocent as well

  32. ikeclanton says: Mar 5, 2016 8:30 AM

    Is it just me, or does anyone think if you use a knife to commit murder, you probably don’t bury it 10 feet away in your own yard right after the fact?

    Even Frank Drebin could have found that piece of evidence by accident in 1994.

  33. realitycheckbaby says: Mar 5, 2016 8:37 AM

    Pats’ fans talking about how OJs’ guilt is obvious…

    Ironic, no?

  34. nflpoker says: Mar 5, 2016 9:53 AM

    1) You can’t try him again as that would be double jeopardy.
    2) He’s broke, so forget the civil suit.
    3) 54 days until the 2016 NFL draft. A little more important.
    4) How about a meaningful sports story that one would actually want to read? I didn’t read this one, as the headline only deserved a comment.

  35. BigAlHeBDMan says: Mar 5, 2016 10:16 AM

    The real knife is swimming with the fishes.

  36. ocdn says: Mar 5, 2016 10:26 AM

    OJ’s still guilty……………period.

    No. One is a murder case and another is about half-wits trying to connect normal tiny air variances to a teams excellent play, simply because they don’t like losing to them.

    ___
    Why are Bills fans trying to change the subject from OJ’s murdering ways and make this an issue about the Patriots?

  39. mtsquad says: Mar 5, 2016 12:27 PM

    Seriously, just what did you think was in that envelope during the beginning of the trial? It was the knife. OJ turned it in, you cannot turn states evidence against yourself, therefore that evidence was tossed.

  40. mtsquad says: Mar 5, 2016 12:29 PM

    I believe this knife was used to deflate certain footballs…

  41. sdchicken says: Mar 5, 2016 12:46 PM

    He was already found guilty in civil court

  42. silverhornet says: Mar 5, 2016 12:53 PM

    Al Michaels believes this is a totally farcical knife.

  43. maiphatdong says: Mar 5, 2016 3:34 PM

    it was a prank, media got played so did pft
