O.J. Simpson reportedly explained how he “hypothetically” had an accomplice in the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in a special to air on Fox this month, according to TMZ.
The 70-year-old Hall of Famer reportedly shared with Judith Regan that this accomplice was with him the day of the murders in a 2006 interview that Fox put back on the shelves years ago under “extreme pressure” to do so.
Regan interviewed Simpson on camera, drawing questions from the book the two wrote titled “If I Did It: Confessions of a Killer” and talked hypothetically how the murders could have been committed.
The never-before-aired special at the time was viewed as a confession of sorts and now according to the outlet the reason was because of Simpson’s chilling explanation of the events of the day.
According to sources, the interview starts out with Simpson speaking in third person about how the killings might have been committed but at some point he switches into first person as he describes the murders, though it’s not a confession, it’s in the same ballpark.
Simpson’s scenario goes like this … he went to her house the evening of June 12, 1994, to “scare the s*** out of her.” He took the bronco to her home with his friend, brought a knife and put a hat and gloves on for dramatic effect.
Simpson then says he looked in Nicole’s window … saw burning candles and believed she was expecting a man to show up. Just then Ron, a waiter from the restaurant where she had just dined, appeared with a pair of sunglasses Nicole’s mom had forgotten at the restaurant. Simpson started screaming in rage, Nicole came running out … and at that point he says he “blacked out” and came to covered in blood.
Simpson was acquitted of the murders in 1994. “O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession” will air Sunday March 11th on Fox.
