Report: Knife At O.J. Simpson’s Estate ‘Inconsistent’ With 1994 Murder


The Internet was abuzz Friday with news that a knife reportedly found at O.J. Simpson’s former estate could provide new evidence into the unsolved murders of Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman.

That buzz might be for nothing, though, as the knife is “inconsistent” to the 1994 murders, sources told NBC News.

The knife, found in “2001 or 2002” is a “relatively inexpensive, small knife typically carried and used only by construction workers” or other people in similar labor jobs, NBC’s source added, and “there was no apparent blood on the knife, only dirt and mud.”

The source wouldn’t elaborate on specifics, but said “the characteristics and condition of the knife were not consistent with the weapon used in the Brown and Goldman murders nor does it appear it was buried for a length of time that would put it in the time frame of the slayings.”

The source added, though, that until forensic tests had been conducted nothing was definitive.

Simpson was acquitted of the case and therefore can’t be retried due to double jeopardy.
