OJ Simpson's Hypothetical Confession on Double Murder in 2006

Share

LaVergne says Simpson learned a lot in the 9 years he spent behind bars stemming from the Palace Station robbery case in Las Vegas, and that "the 2006 O.J. Simpson is not the 2018 O.J. Simpson".

In The Fox special, OJ talks about a violent clash with tragic Nicole over her drug use and her relationship with friend Faye Resnick, who OJ labels "a hooker", claims the Daily Mail. A guy I really didn't recognise.

"In the book the hypothetical is Charlie came by and mentioned something about what was going on at her house", Simpson said in the interview, referring to his ex-wife.

"As things got heated, I just remember Nicole fell and hurt herself and this guy kind of got into a karate thing".

"I remember I grabbed the knife, I do remember that portion, taking the knife from Charlie and to be honest, after that I don't remember, except I'm standing there and there's all kinda stuff around", he said.

But after that, Simpson's memory got cloudy and all he remembered was "blood and stuff around".

It doesn't sound hypothetical at all here, and didn't to Regan at the time, either. The interview was scrapped in 2006 due to backlash and has now been rebooted with the name O.J.

The original prosecutors objected to the event too, and the objections were a little more substantial than Regan credits with Camerota.

July 28: A second Hwasong-14 is launched with an estimated range reaching into the USA mainland, including cities such as Chicago. At the time, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said that the exercises would go ahead once the Paralympics concluded.

United States television network Fox said the interview was presumed to be lost after its shelving, but was recently rediscovered.

But Simpson's attorney Malcolm LaVergne claimed Regan was leading Simpson through the interview simply to push book sales. "Ironically OJ simpson airs on fox 25 years to the day after the episode we asked him to be in (pre-murders) and he turned down", Jean, who has been with the fan-favorite animated show for 30 years, wrote on the micro-blogging site.

While that pales in comparison to "Idol's" peak on Fox that saw around 37 million viewers, it's a ratings bonanza compared to the 4.4 million viewers who tuned into Fox on Sunday to hear Simpson give a "hypothetical" confession to murder.

And Darden wasn't the only one sounding off on the special.

"This idea that this is a confession interview is a joke", LaVergne said.

Meanwhile, the airing of the interview included takes from host Soledad O'Brien, prosecutor Christopher Darden, Regan, Nicole's friend Eve Shakti Chen, Jim Clemente (retired Federal Bureau of Investigation head) and Rita Smith (spokeswoman for the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence). "I went to her house and I read her the riot act", he said.

He also admits to dropping a glove on the property - which we all know he was referencing the infamous glove at the scene of the crime that didn't fit him.

What would compel Simpson to make a confession, even a hypothetical one? That's when Simpson allegedly took the knife from his friend. The answer is probably that he didn't have much to lose. Simpson was acquitted of the murders, but he was deemed responsible for them in a civil lawsuit. " O.J. eventually checks himself when he realizes he's talking in first person and actually starts laughing seriously".
