The weapon vs. O.J. Simpson

According to CNN, a knife that is said to have been found around the estate that former NFL star O.J. Simpson once owned.  Los Angeles police Capt. Andy Neiman stated that the knife is under examination.

Simpson was accused and acquitted in the 1994 murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.

The victims were stabbed to death by a knife which was never found when the case was open. During the murder trial the owner of Ross Cutlery store, Allen Wattenberg, contributed information that portrayed O.J. Simpson to be more on the guilty side.

CNN stated that Watten burger “testified that his employee sold Simpson a 15-inch stiletto knife on May 3, 1994. He said Simpson asked that the knife be sharpened.”

Neiman also stated that the knife was found by a construction worker in the last month and turned it over to a now-retired police officer.

On October 3, 1995 O .J. Simpson was not found guilty in the killings of his ex-wife and her friend. Simpson cannot be tried again in regards to the case.

However in 2008 Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in prison being found guilty on 12 counts.
