OJ Simpson’s former manager claims he knows ‘who committed the murders and why’ 20 years after the crimes took place.
There was a plot twist in the 22-year-old case last week when the LAPD announced they were testing a knife recently recovered from grounds of OJ’s former mansion.
In an interview with People magazine, Norman Pardo added that OJ ‘isn’t losing any sleep over it’.
Pardo claims the reason he and OJ didn’t reveal their thoughts at the time was because the authorities confiscated evidence:
They took all my stuff regarding the incidents. They raided my office and took it all.
The football legend turned actor was cleared of the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman, following an incredibly high-profile trial in 1995.
OJ was later found guilty of wrongful death in a civil court, but failed to pay back more than a fraction of the sum he was ordered to pay to the victims’ families in compensation.
However, he is now serving a prison sentence after he was convicted of robbery in 2008. Simpson was part of a group that broke into a room at the Palace Station Hotel in Las Vegas and stole sports memorabilia at gun point.
The murder case has recently been thrown back into the spotlight with TV series American Crime Story: The People Versus OJ Simpson – starring Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr as OJ – currently airing on both sides of the Atlantic.
The series is exploring how OJ’s ‘dream team’ of defence attorneys were able to concentrate on the racial aspects of OJ’s arrest.
Will the truth about this case ever come out?
