The O.J. Simpson murder trial polarized the American public in ways that I’m still attempting to process through FX’s American Crime Story, but some new details from the infamous case are coming into the forefront now.
Accoridng to TMZ, a bloody knife supposedly found on Simpson’s estate years ago was turned into the LAPD very recently. A construction worker found it while working on the estate and turned it into an off-duty cop sometime after the trial. The same cop planned to frame it in his house after he retired, but a colleague told their higher-ups, who are checking the weapon for DNA now.
Simpson was acquitted of the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson in 1995, but has been in prison since 2008 on an armed robbery charge in Las Vegas.
