Surely this has to be some terrible April Fool’s joke, as the story broke yesterday. But no. Private investigator William Dear has written new book alleging that it was Jason Simpson who murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman on June 12, 1994.
O.J. was tried for and acquitted of these crimes but many people still doubt his innocence.
Now, in his shocking new book, “O.J. Is Innocent And I Can Prove It,” William Dear says he has spent the last six years investigating the case.
He says that O.J. was at the murder scene but that he did not arrive until after his ex-wife and her friend had been stabbed to death. Furthermore, he says that he has uncovered substantial circumstantial evidence leading to the shocking conclusion that Jason was the killer.
Dear says he has accumulated his “evidence” from an abandoned storage locker and Jason’s trash. He has written his book in the hopes of getting more attention for his allegations, since a documentary he made two years ago on the same subject received little coverage.
It was widely termed “the trial of the century” when O.J. Simpson was acquitted of the murders. Later, in a civil suit civil suit brought against him by the Brown and Goldman families, he was found “liable” for the deaths.
Former football star O.J. is now in a Nevada prison, serving a lengthy sentence for armed robbery and kidnapping following his conviction in a bizarre case involving his own sports memorabilia.
LAPD detectives determined that Jason Simpson had an alibi at the time of his stepmother’s murder and he was never considered a suspect. Now 41, he was last known to be working as a chef in Miami and has not yet commented on the claims made in this book.
