During an interview with Vanity Fair, Ron Shipp — who was also friends with Simpson — said he believes O.J. killed his wife.

“His mom is a very religious person,” Shipp said. “If you remember during the Bronco chase, he kept saying, ‘I want my mom.’ I just think that one of these days, I’m hoping he has whatever his mom taught him spiritually, and he’ll say, ‘This is what I did. Forgive me.’

Shipp said the moment he heard about Nicole’s death, he knew it was O.J. who killed her.

“Being a cop, I said to myself, ‘Man, he killed her,'” he said.

“I’d been on stabbings as a cop and I just remember whenever people repeatedly stab people, they always seem to cut themselves. That never left my mind. When I got there, the first thing I noticed was O.J. had his left finger bandaged.”

“I was only there about 10 minutes or so before I asked him what happened to his finger in front of everybody. He didn’t look at me. He had three TVs and he was watching every single one of the channels and talking to the TVs. By this time, the media was saying that he was a possible suspect. He told me he cut his finger in Chicago on a glass.”

“That night, he changed the story two more times.”

LAS VEGAS, NV - MAY 17: O.J. Simpson enters the courtroom at an evidentiary hearing in Clark County District Court on May 17, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Simpson, who is currently serving a nine-to-33-year sentence in state prison as a result of his October 2008 conviction for armed robbery and kidnapping charges, is using a writ of habeas corpus to seek a new trial, claiming he had such bad representation that his conviction should be reversed.

Shipp later testified against Simpson.

“What really made me testify, and I didn’t realize what Chris [Darden] was doing at the time, but he left the homicide book in front of me and left me alone for a while,” Shipp continued.

“I didn’t even realize it was there at first, because I was getting kind of angry because he was keeping me waiting. But then I opened it up and I saw what the pictures were.” (RELATED: This Is What O.J. Simpson Told Kris Jenner About His Wife’s Murder)

“They were unfiltered, the actual homicide and autopsy pictures. You sit there and you look at somebody you know. You know, I loved Nicole and I looked at her like a little sister. It was horrific.”

“When Chris came back and sat down, I said, ‘Chris, you don’t have to say another word. I’m testifying.'”
