Knife Found at O.J. Simpson Property Not Murder Weapon

A knife reportedly found at OJ Simpson’s former home wasn’t used in the 1994 killings of which he was acquitted, tests have shown.


Forensic investigators conducted DNA and other tests on the blade after it was turned over to the Los Angeles Police Department by a retired motorcycle officer recently.

“We don’t know if it’s a hoax but there’s no nexus to the murders, based on the testing we’ve done,” LAPD Captain Andrew Neiman said in an interview.

Police have declined to specify when they received the knife.

The retired officer told investigators he had been given the knife by a construction worker.

He in turn claimed to have found it on Simpson’s property in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles when the house was being torn down in 1998.

Simpson’s former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman were stabbed to death on June 12, 1994, at her condominium a few miles away.

The murder weapon was not recovered at the time of his sensational trial, which was carried live on major television networks in the United States and transfixed much of the country.

Since then the case has been recreated in a popular TV series, starring Cuba Gooding Jr as OJ Simpson.
