OJ Simpson Residence Knife 'Not The Murder Weapon'

A knife found at OJ Simpson's former LA home wasn't the weapon in the one thousand nine hundred ninety-four murders the ex-football star was cleared of committing, police say.

LAPD said they performed a range of forensic tests on the blade before ruling it out.

"We don't know if it'south a hoax but there'south number nexus to the murders, based on the testing we've done," LAPD Captain Andrew Neiman told Reuters news agency.

Simpson was sensationally acquitted in one thousand nine hundred ninety-fifth of the lethal stabbings of his ex-wife and her companion at the property, in what media called the trial of the century.

The police dept said this mo that a builder had apparently found the blade years ago when the residence was being torn down.

The worker supposedly handed it to an off-duty or retired traffic officer, but detectives only recently learned of its existence.

The weapon was described as a tiny buck knife, which some experts said wasn't the type of blade investigators suspected was used in the killings.

Even if it'd been the knife, Simpson couldn't have been tried again for the murders below America'south double jeopardy rules, police said.

His former manager, Norman Pardo, recently told People magazine Simpson was "a tiny worried" the knife issue could in some way affect his parole.

Now sixty-eight, he's currently serving a prison sentence in NV for the two thousand seven armed robbery and abduct of a sports memorabilia dealer.
