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

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.

  1. 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.

    He could still be sued for civil rights violations.

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

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

  7. 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.

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

    Now that is FUNNY!

  9. “It’s lewd, lascivious, salacious, outrageous!”

    “They’re real and they’re spectacular.”

  10. 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.

  11. 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.”

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

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

    Ironic, no?

    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?

  16. 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.
