Naturally this led to much speculation as to whether that knife, which was actually found in 1998, but never tested, could in fact have been the weapon which was used to kill Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
Speculation was further fueled a couple of days ago when O.J. Simpson allegedly said something that almost sounded like a confession.
Today, we now have a few statements from an LAPD spokesperson with regards to the knife.
“We can’t say for sure that it is or it isn’t; it appears that it isn’t,” Officer Ricardo Hernandez of the LAPD Media Relations Office tells PEOPLE.
Hernandez says that the knife is still being tested by the LAPD forensics team. “More tests are going to have to be conducted before we can determine if that was the weapon used,” he says.
A law enforcement official told the Associated Press on Wednesday that the knife, allegedly found some time after Simpson’s acquittal, is a common tool used by gardeners and that it was too small to make the wounds that killed the pair.
So “it appears that it isn’t.” Much like the statement O.J. allegedly made a few days ago, that’s not a denial! (Get hyped conspiracy theorists!)
But wait, there’s more!
O.J. Simpson’s ex-manager Norman Pardo claims that HE knows who REALLY did the killings.
Reports Us Weekly…
“I know who did it and I knοw why they did it,” Pardo told KNX 1070 Newsradio on Tuesday, March 8. “I just can’t disclose it right now.”
And in an interview with People, Pardo said that with regard to the knife O.J. “isn’t losing any sleep over it.” In fact, Pardo says that The Juice reportedly laughed when he heard about it, saying, according to sources, “I’m not stupid, I flew to Chicago that night. That’s all I’m going to say.”
Hard to believe it’s been 22 years and still no one has been able to conclusively find the real killer yet. Right?
Here’s a little more detail on the testing of the knife that conveniently appeared just as the O.J. mini-series was getting into full-swing.
