O.J. Simpson - "Khloé ist nicht meine Tochter"Nicole kam mit einem Messer aus der Tür: ohne dieses Messer — wäre die Tat nie geschehen… 2. Die Ermittler führten das Gespräch aber durchaus in dem Bewusstsein, dass sie O. Vannatter transportierte die Probe in einem unverschlossenen Umschlag.
During cross examination, Park conceded that he could not identify the figure but said he saw that person enter the front door and afterwards Simpson answered and said he was home alone.
Park conceded that he did not notice any cuts on Simpson's left hand but added "I shook his right hand, not his left.
The prosecution presented a total of exhibits, including 61 drops of blood,  of DNA evidence allegedly linking Simpson to the murders.
With no witnesses to the crime, the prosecution was dependent on DNA as the only physical evidence linking Simpson to the crime.
Gregory Matheson, chief forensic chemist at the Los Angeles Police Crime Lab, testified May 1, that serology testing verified all of the above matches with the chance of error being 1-in or 0.
Bodziak, testified that the bloody footprints found at the crime scene, leading away from the victims towards the back alleyway, and inside Simpson's Bronco were made from a rare and expensive pair of Bruno Magli Italian shoes.
Bodziak determined the shoes were a size 12, the same size that Simpson wears. The prosecution discovered that the shoes are only sold at Bloomingdales, that only 29 pairs had been sold in the U.
S and one of them was sold at the same store that Nicole Brown had purchased the gloves she gave Simpson and the prosecution believed he wore during the murders.
Bodziak also testified that, although there are two sets of footprints at the crime scene, they were all made by the same shoes, indicating only one attacker was present.
During cross-examination Bailey suggested the murderer deliberately wore shoes that were the wrong size, which Bodziak dismissed as "ridiculous".
Simpson denied ever owning a pair of those "ugly ass shoes" and there was only circumstantial evidence he did. Although the prosecution could not prove that Simpson owned a pair of those shoes, Bodziak testified that a similar footprint was left on the floor inside Simpson's Bronco.
Scheck suggested that Fuhrman broke into the Bronco and left the footprint there; he produced a photo of Fuhrman walking through a puddle of blood.
Bodziak admitted that he was not able to confirm that the shoe print in the car definitely came from a Bruno Magli shoe, although he said none of the shoe prints at the crime scene was made by Fuhrman's shoes, making it unlikely he could have made a bloody shoe print in the Bronco.
Simpson hired a team of high-profile defense lawyers, initially led by Robert Shapiro , who was previously a civil lawyer known for settling, and then subsequently by Johnnie Cochran, who at that point was known for police brutality and civil rights cases.
Assisting Cochran were Carl E. Douglas and Shawn Holley. The defense team's reasonable doubt theory was summarized as "compromised, contaminated, corrupted" in opening statements.
Robert Huizenga testified on July 14,  that Simpson was not physically capable of carrying out the murders.
Simpson was a year-old former professional football player with chronic arthritis and had scars on his knees from old football injuries.
During cross-examination, the prosecution produced into evidence an exercise video that Simpson made a few weeks before the murders titled O.
Simpson Minimum Maintenance: Fitness for Men , which showed that, despite some physical conditions and limitations, Simpson was anything but frail.
Huizenga admitted afterwards that Simpson could have committed the murders if he was in "the throes of an adrenaline rush.
Michael Baden , a forensic pathologist, testified on August 10, and challenged the prosecution's timeline, claiming the murders happened at around pm.
Baden testified that Goldman and Brown "struggled long and hard" with the killer. He claimed that Brown was still conscious when her throat was cut and that Goldman was still standing and fighting his assailant for at least five and possibly up to ten minutes after his jugular vein was cut.
Irwin Golden had made more than 30 mistakes during his autopsy of the two victims, which diminished the credibility of their findings.
If Baden's testimony was accurate and the murders took place closer to pm, then Simpson had an alibi. After the trial, Baden stated that testifying for Simpson was a mistake as it later harmed his reputation.
Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld argued that the results from the DNA testing were not reliable because the police were "sloppy" in collecting and preserving it from the crime scene.
These mistakes included not always changing gloves between handling evidence items, packaging and storing the evidence items using plastic bags, rather than paper bags as recommended, and storing evidence in the police van, which was not refrigerated, for up to seven hours after collection in southern California in June.
The prosecution responded that none of the admitted mistakes made by criminalist Dennis Fung or Andrea Mazzola changed the validity of the results,  that all of the evidence samples were testable and that most of the DNA testing was done at the two consulting labs, not the LAPD crime lab where contamination supposedly happened.
The argument given was that if the police contaminated the "real killer s " blood with Simpson's blood as suggested, the result would be a mixture of both blood types.
However, the results showed that only Simpson's DNA was present. The contamination claim was made by microbiologist Dr.
John Gerdes. It is chronic in the sense that it doesn't go away. During cross-examination, Dr. Gerdes admitted there was no evidence that cross-contamination had occurred and that he was only testifying to "what might have occurred and not what actually did occur".
He accepted that the victims' blood was in the Bronco and Simpson's blood was at the crime scene and neither was due to contamination.
He also conceded that nothing happened during "packaging and shipping" that would affect the validity of the results at the two consulting labs.
The prosecution implied that Gerdes was not a credible witness: he had no forensic experience, had never collected evidence nor done any of the DNA tests, had testified in 23 trials, always for a criminal defendant charged with rape, murder or both and every time had said the DNA evidence against them was not reliable due to contamination.
They also suggested that it was not a coincidence that the only three evidence samples he initially said were valid were the same three the defense claimed were planted.
Henry Lee testified on August 24, and admitted during cross-examination that Gerdes's claim was "highly improbable".
Barry Scheck's eight-day cross-examination of Dennis Fung was lauded in the media. What contamination and degradation will lead you to is an inconclusive result.
It doesn't lead you to a false positive. The defense initially only claimed that three exhibits were planted by the police  but eventually argued that virtually all of the blood evidence against Simpson was planted in a police conspiracy.
In closing arguments, Cochran called Fuhrman and Vannatter "twins of deception"  and told the jury to remember Vannatter as "the man who carried the blood"  and Fuhrman as "the man who found the glove.
The only physical evidence offered by the defense that the police tried to frame Simpson was the allegation that two of the DNA evidence samples tested in the case contained the preservative Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid , or EDTA.
Ironically, it was the prosecution who asked to have the samples tested for the preservative, not the defense.
In order to support the claim, the defense pointed to the presence of EDTA , a preservative found in the purple-topped collection tubes used for police reference vials, in the samples.
On July 24, , Dr. Fredric Rieders , a forensic toxicologist who had analysed results provided by FBI special agent Roger Martz, testified that the level of EDTA in the evidence samples was higher than that which is normally found in blood: this appeared to support the claim they came from the reference vials.
Rieders to read out loud the portion of the EPA article that stated what the normal levels of EDTA in blood are, which he referenced during his testimony.
Rieders then claimed it was a "typo"   but the prosecution produced a direct copy from the EPA disproving that claim. Rieders the day before.
When the defense accused their own witness of changing his demeanor to favor the prosecution, he replied "I cannot be entirely truthful by only giving 'yes' and 'no' answers".
Martz also tested his own unpreserved blood and got the same results for EDTA levels as the evidence samples, which he said conclusively disproved the claim the evidence blood came from the reference vials.
The defense alleged that Simpson's blood on the back gate at the Bundy crime scene was planted by the police.
The blood on the back gate was collected on July 3, , rather than June 13, the day after the murders. The volume of DNA was so high that the defense conceded that it could not be explained by contamination in the lab, yet noted that it was unusual for that blood to have more DNA on it than the other samples collected at the crime scene, especially since it had been left exposed to the elements for several weeks and after the crime scene had supposedly been washed over.
On March 20, Detective Vannatter testified that he instructed Fung to collect the blood on the gate on June 13 and Fung admitted he had not done so.
The prosecution responded by showing that a different photograph that showed the blood was present on the back gate on June 13 and before the blood had been taken from Simpson's arm.
Barry Scheck alleged the police had twice planted the victims' blood inside Simpson's Bronco. An initial collection was made on June 13; the defense accused Vannatter of planting the victims' blood in the Bronco when he returned to Simpson's home later that evening.
The prosecution responded that the Bronco had already been impounded by the time Vannatter returned and was not even at Rockingham.
The defense alleged that the police had planted Brown's blood on the socks found in Simpson's bedroom. The socks were collected on June 13 and had blood from both Simpson and Brown but her blood on the socks was not identified until August 4.
He had received both blood reference vials from the victims earlier that day from the coroner and booked them immediately into evidence.
Vannatter then drove back to Rockingham later that evening to hand deliver the reference vial for Simpson to Fung, which the defense alleged gave him opportunity to plant the blood.
Fung testified he could not see blood on the socks he collected from Simpson's bedroom  but the prosecution later demonstrated that those blood stains are only visible underneath a microscope.
Detective Vannatter denied planting Nicole Brown's blood on the socks. The video from Willie Ford indicated that the socks had already been collected and stored in the evidence van before Vannatter arrived and footage from the media cameras present appeared to prove that he never went inside the evidence van when he arrived at Rockingham.
The last exhibit allegedly planted was the bloody glove found at Simpson's property by Detective Mark Fuhrman. Robert Shapiro later admitted he was Toobin's source.
Defense attorney F. Lee Bailey suggested that Fuhrman found the glove at the crime scene, picked it up with a stick and placed it in a plastic bag, and then concealed it in his sock when he drove to Simpson's home with Detectives Lange and Vannatter and his partner Detective Philips.
Bailey suggested that Fuhrman had then planted the glove in order to frame Simpson, with the motive either being racism or a desire to become the hero in a high-profile case.
During redirect, the prosecution made numerous points to support the contention that Fuhrman did not plant the glove.
They noted that by the time Fuhrman had arrived, the crime scene at Brown's home had already been combed over by several officers for almost two hours, and none had noticed a second glove at the scene, including Lt.
Frank Spangler. Spangler testified that only one glove was found at the crime scene, by him and the other two officers who were there first, and that he had been with Fuhrman for the duration of Fuhrman's time at the scene.
Spangler stated that he would have seen Fuhrman purloin the glove if he had in fact done so. Detective Tom Lange testified on March 8, that 14 other officers were there when Fuhrman arrived as well and all said there was only one glove at the crime scene.
During cross-examination by Bailey,  Fuhrman denied that he had used the word "nigger" to describe African Americans in the ten years prior to his testimony.
The tapes had been made between and by a young North Carolina screenwriter named Laura Hart McKinny, who had interviewed Fuhrman at length for a Hollywood screenplay she was writing on women police officers.
The Fuhrman tapes became one of the cornerstones of the defense's case that Fuhrman's testimony lacked credibility.
Clark called the tapes "the biggest red herring there ever was. After McKinny was forced to hand over the tapes to the defense, Fuhrman says he asked the prosecution for a redirect to explain the context of those tapes but the prosecution and his fellow police officers abandoned him after Ito played the audiotapes in open court for the public to hear.
Fuhrman says he instantly became a pariah. On September 6, , Fuhrman was called back to the witness stand by the defense, after the prosecution refused to redirect him, to answer more questions.
The jury was absent but the exchange was televised. Fuhrman, with his lawyer standing by his side and facing the possibility of being charged with Perjury , was instructed by his attorney to invoke the Fifth Amendment to avoid self-incrimination to two consecutive questions he was asked.
Defense attorney Uelmen asked Fuhrman if it was his intention to plead the Fifth to all questions, and Fuhrman's attorney instructed him to reply "yes".
Uelman then briefly spoke with the other members of the defense and said he had just one more question: "Did you plant or manufacture any evidence in this case?
Cochran responded to Fuhrman's pleading the Fifth by accusing the other officers of being involved in a "cover-up" to protect Fuhrman and asked Judge Ito to suppress all of the evidence that Fuhrman found.
Ito denied the request, stating that pleading the fifth does not imply guilt and there was no evidence of fraud. Cochran then asked that the jury be allowed to hear Fuhrman taking the fifth and again Ito denied his request.
Ito also criticized the defense's theory of how Fuhrman allegedly planted the glove stating "it would strain logic to believe that".
On June 15, , Christopher Darden surprised Marcia Clark by asking Simpson to try on the gloves found at the crime scene and his home. The prosecution had earlier decided against asking Simpson to try them on because they had been soaked in blood from Simpson, Brown and Goldman,  and frozen and unfrozen several times.
Instead they presented a witness who testified that Nicole Brown had purchased a pair of those gloves in the same size in at Bloomingdales for Simpson along with a receipt and a photo during the trial of Simpson earlier wearing the same type of gloves.
The leather gloves appeared too tight for Simpson to put on easily, especially over the latex gloves he wore underneath. Clark claimed that Simpson was acting when he appeared to be struggling to put on the gloves, yet Cochran replied "I don't think he could act the size of his hands.
The prosecution stated they believed the gloves shrank from having been soaked in the blood of the victims.
He stated "the gloves in the original condition would easily go onto the hand of someone of Mr. Simpson's size.
After the trial, Cochran revealed that Bailey had goaded Darden into asking Simpson to try on the gloves  and that Shapiro had told Simpson in advance how to give the appearance that they did not fit.
In closing arguments, Darden ridiculed the notion that police officers might have wanted to frame Simpson.
Darden noted the police did not arrest Simpson for five days after the murders. The prosecution told the jury in closing arguments that Fuhrman was a racist, but said that this should not detract from the factual evidence that showed Simpson's guilt.
Cochran compared Fuhrman to Adolf Hitler and referred to him as "a genocidal racist, a perjurer, America's worst nightmare and the personification of evil".
Fears grew that race riots, similar to the riots in , would erupt across Los Angeles and the rest of the country if Simpson were convicted of the murders.
As a result, all Los Angeles police officers were put on hour shifts. The police arranged for more than police officers on horseback to surround the Los Angeles County courthouse on the day the verdict was announced, in case of rioting by the crowd.
President Bill Clinton was briefed on security measures if rioting occurred nationwide. The only testimony reviewed was that of limo driver Alan Park.
An estimated million people worldwide watched or listened to the verdict announcement. Water usage decreased as people avoided using bathrooms.
Supreme Court received a message on the verdict during oral arguments , with the justices quietly passing the note to each other while listening to the attorney's presentation.
Congressmen canceled press conferences, with one telling reporters, "Not only would you not be here, but I wouldn't be here, either". After the verdict in favor of Simpson, most blacks surveyed said they believed justice had been served.
In , FiveThirtyEight reported that most black people now think Simpson committed the murders. Shapiro admitted the defense played the "race card," "from the bottom of the deck.
It was followed by a three-hour tour of Simpson's estate. Simpson was under guard by several officers but did not wear handcuffs; he waited outside the crime scene in and around an unmarked police car and was permitted to enter his house.
Simpson's defense team had switched out his photos of whites for blacks, including switching a picture of a nude Paula Barbieri Simpson's girlfriend at the time, who was white for a Norman Rockwell painting from Cochran's office.
Prosecutors had requested that Ito restrict the tour to only the crime scene for this exact reason, but Ito refused, and came under heavy criticism for allowing the defense to control the trial.
Critics of the jury's not-guilty verdict contended that the deliberation time was unduly short relative to the length of the trial. Some said that the jurors, most of whom did not have any college education, did not understand the forensic evidence.
Three jurors together wrote and published a book called Madam Foreman,  in which they described how their perception of police errors, not race, led to their verdict.
They said that they considered Darden to be a token black assigned to the case by the prosecutor's office.
In , Cochran wrote and published a book about the trial. It was titled Journey to Justice, and described his involvement in the case.
He criticized Bailey as a "loose cannon" and Cochran for bringing race into the trial. Clark published a book about the case titled Without a Doubt She concluded that nothing could have saved her case, given the defense's strategy of highlighting racial issues related to Simpson and the LAPD, and the predominance of blacks on the jury.
In Clark's opinion, the prosecution's factual evidence, particularly the DNA, should have easily convicted Simpson.
That it did not, she says, attests to a judicial system compromised by issues of race and celebrity.
Darden published a book about the case called In Contempt He also describes his frustration with a "dysfunctional and uneducated jury" that dismissed Simpson's history of domestic violence as irrelevant and inability to comprehend the DNA evidence in the case.
Darden also describes his initial contact with Fuhrman and his suspicions that he is a racist and his feelings that the prosecution had been "kidnapped by a racist cop" whom they were unable to divorce themselves from.
It also details the candid factors behind Darden's controversial decision for Simpson to try on the infamous glove and the impact it had on the trials outcome.
Simpson Got Away with Murder. He contended that the note "reeked" of guilt and that the jury should have been allowed to see it. He also noted that the jury was never informed about items found in the Bronco.
The prosecution said that they felt these items of evidence would bring up emotional issues on Simpson's part that could harm their case, despite the fact that the items seemed as though they could be used for fleeing.
Bugliosi also said the prosecutors should have gone into more detail about Simpson's domestic abuse and presented evidence contrary to the defense's assertion that Simpson was a leader in the black community.
Bugliosi also criticized the prosecution for trying the murder in Los Angeles, rather than Santa Monica, and described the prosecution's closing statements as inadequate.
California courts barred peremptory challenges to jurors based on race in People v. Wheeler ,  years before the U. Supreme Court would do so in Batson v.
Defense forensic DNA expert Dr. He devotes the last two chapters to explaining the arguments of Scheck and Neufeld against the DNA evidence in the Simpson case.
Lee notes that Scheck and Neufeld were skeptics of DNA evidence and only recently before the trial, in , accepted its validity and founded the Innocence Project.
Henry Lee or Dr. Edward Blake, considered Scheck and Neufeld's reasonable doubt theory about the blood evidence plausible.
In hindsight, Dr. Lee opines that Scheck and Neufeld's claim that "the blood evidence is only as good as the people collecting it" was an obfuscation tactic to conflate the validity of the evidence with the integrity of the LAPD and then attack the latter because both Scheck and Neufeld knew that the defense's forensic DNA experts reached the same conclusion as the prosecution: the mistakes made during evidence collection did not render the results unreliable.
He bases this on comments from jurors after the trial, some of which included claims that the blood at the crime scene that matched Simpson had "degraded" and could possibly have been from Simpson's children or from one of the officials who collected the evidence.
He attributes this misinterpretation to Scheck and Neufeld's deliberate obfuscation and deception about the reliability of the results.
After the trial, the jurors faced harsh criticism for doubting the DNA evidence while Scheck and Neufeld received praise. Lee believes that the scathing criticism the jurors faced for doubting the DNA evidence based on the arguments Scheck and Neufeld made might have been the reason why they were the only two DNA experts from the criminal trial to decline to return for the subsequent civil trial to make those claims again.
When the trial began, all of the networks were getting these hate-mail letters because people's soap operas were being interrupted for the Simpson trial.
But then what happened was the people who liked soap operas got addicted to the Simpson trial. And they got really upset when the Simpson trial was over, and people would come up to me on the street and say, 'God, I loved your show.
The murders and trial — "the biggest story I have ever seen", said a producer of NBC's Today — received extensive media coverage from the very beginning; at least one instant book was proposed two hours after the bodies were found, and scheduled to publish only a few weeks later.
The Big Three television networks ' nightly news broadcasts gave more air time to the case than to the Bosnian War and the Oklahoma City bombing combined.
Participants in the case received much media coverage. Fans approached Clark at restaurants and malls, and when she got a new hairstyle during the trial, the prosecutor received a standing ovation on the courthouse steps; People approved of the change, but advised her to wear "more fitted suits and tailored skirts".
While Cochran, Bailey and Dershowitz were already well-known, others like Kaelin became celebrities, and Resnick and Simpson's girlfriend Paula Barbieri appeared in Playboy.
Those involved in the trial followed their own media coverage; when Larry King appeared in the courtroom after a meeting with Ito, both Simpson and Clark praised King's talk show.
Interest in the case was worldwide; Russian president Boris Yeltsin 's first question to President Clinton when they met in was, "Do you think O.
The issue of whether to allow any video cameras into the courtroom was among the first issues Judge Ito had to decide, ultimately ruling that live camera coverage was warranted.
Dershowitz said that he believed that Ito, along with others related to the case such as Clark, Fuhrman and Kaelin, was influenced to some degree by the media presence and related publicity.
The trial was covered in 2, news segments from through Among the reporters who covered the trial daily from the courtroom, and a media area that was dubbed "Camp O.
Time became the subject of a media scandal. After the publication of the photo drew widespread criticism of racist editorializing and yellow journalism , Time publicly apologized.
Charles Ogletree , a former criminal defense attorney and current professor at Harvard Law School , said in a interview for PBS ' Frontline that the best investigative reporting around the events and facts of the murder, and the evidence of the trial, was by the National Enquirer.
Despite Simpson's acquittal of the two murder charges, Police Chief Willie Williams indicated that he had no plans to reopen the investigation, saying of the acquittals, "It doesn't mean there's another murderer.
In the February issue of Esquire , Simpson was quoted as saying, "Let's say I committed this crime Even if I did this, it would have to have been because I loved her very much, right?
In April , Simpson did an interview with talk show host Ruby Wax. In an apparent joke, Simpson shows up at her hotel room claiming to have a surprise for her, and suddenly waved a banana about his head, as if it were a knife, and pretended to stab Wax with it.
The footage soon made its way onto U. TV networks, causing outrage. In , Fred Goldman and Sharon Rufo, the parents of Ron Goldman, filed a suit against Simpson for wrongful death , while Brown's estate, represented by her father Lou Brown,  brought suit against Simpson in a "survivor suit.
Fuhrman was not called to testify, and Simpson was subpoenaed to testify on his own behalf. Simpson denied owning those shoes and said the photo was doctored like his mugshot on the cover of Time magazine but the photographer E.
Flammer produced the originals, disproving that claim. Other pre photos of Simpson wearing Bruno Magli shoes were discovered as well.
Enyart took the items outside the courthouse where the auction was held, burned the certificate and jerseys, and smashed the trophies with a sledgehammer.
In November , ReganBooks announced a book ghostwritten by Pablo Fenjves based on interviews with Simpson titled If I Did It , an account which the publisher said was a hypothetical confession.
The book's release was planned to coincide with a Fox special featuring Simpson. CEO Rupert Murdoch , speaking at a press conference, stated: "I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project.
Later, the Goldman family was awarded rights to the book to satisfy part of the judgment against Simpson. On the front cover of the book, the title was stylized with the word "If" to appear much smaller than those of "I Did It", and placed inside the "I", so unless looked at very closely, the title of the book reads "I Did It: Confessions of the Killer".
On March 11, , Fox broadcast Simpson's previously unaired interview with Regan, which was part of the book deal in a special titled O.
Simpson: The Lost Confession? Due to the change in phrasing, these comments were interpreted by many as being a form of confession, which stirred strong reactions in print media and the internet.
As a result of a incident in Las Vegas , Nevada regarding an attempt to steal materials Simpson claimed were stolen from him, Simpson was convicted in of multiple felonies including use of a deadly weapon to commit kidnapping, burglary and armed robbery, and sentenced to a minimum nine years to a maximum 33 years in prison.
His attempts to appeal the sentence were unsuccessful and he was detained at Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada.
After a July 20, Nevada parole board hearing voting unanimously 4—0, Simpson was granted parole after a minimum nine-year sentence on the remaining counts for the Vegas robbery with Sunday, October 1, to be his release date from prison on parole.
Florida is one of the few U. Simpson has participated in two high-profile interviews regarding the case — one in with Ross Becker , which outlines Simpson's side of the story, as well as a guided tour of his estate, where evidence used in the trial was found.
The second took place in , on the tenth anniversary of the murders, with Katie Couric for NBC speaking to Simpson.
He had worked for that network as a sports commentator. Get Away with Murder ,  which details Simpson confessing to the killings to Gilbert.
Simpson said, "If she hadn't opened that door with a knife in her hand In March , the LAPD announced a knife had been found in buried at Simpson's estate, when the buildings were razed.
A construction worker had given the knife to a police officer, who, believing the case had been closed, did not submit it as evidence at the time.
Forensic tests demonstrated that the knife was not related to the murder. The presence of Kardashian on Simpson's legal team, combined with the press coverage of the trial, was the catalyst for the ongoing popularity of the Kardashian family.
The murders continue to be the subject of research and speculation. The documentary, produced by Malcolm Brinkworth, claims that the police and prosecution had contaminated or planted evidence pointing to Simpson as the killer, and ignored exculpatory evidence.
Furthermore, it asserts that the state too hastily eliminated other possible suspects, including Simpson's elder son Jason, and individuals linked to the illegal drug trade, in which Brown, Goldman and Resnick allegedly participated.
Alternative theories of the murders, supposedly shared by Simpson, have suggested they were related to the Los Angeles drug trade,  and that Michael Nigg , a friend and co-worker of Goldman, was murdered as well.
Simpson himself has stated in numerous interviews that he believes the two had been killed over their involvement in drug dealing in the area, and that other murders at the time were carried out for the same reason.
Brown, Simpson believed, had been planning to open a restaurant using proceeds from cocaine sales. Mezzaluna was reportedly a nexus for drug trafficking in Brentwood.
Brett Cantor , part-owner of the Dragonfly nightclub in Hollywood , was found stabbed to death in his nearby home on July 30, ;  no suspects have ever been identified.
Michael Nigg, an aspiring actor and waiter at a Los Angeles restaurant, was shot and killed during an attempted robbery on September 8, , while withdrawing money from an ATM.
Since Nigg was a friend of Ronald Goldman, with whom he had worked, and seemed to live quite well for someone in his position, some reports have suggested that he was involved in drug trafficking.
Nigg's murder has been used to support theories that the murders of Goldman and O. Simpson's ex-wife Nicole the year before were drug-related as well.
In , several links between the killings and convicted murderer Glen Edward Rogers were alleged in the documentary film My Brother the Serial Killer , which was broadcast on Investigation Discovery ID.
Clay Rogers, Glen's brother, recounts Glen saying how he had met Brown and was "going to take her down" a few days before the murders happened in The information was forwarded to Simpson's prosecutors, but was ignored.
Much later, in his years-long correspondence with criminal profiler Anthony Meolis, Glen also wrote about and created paintings pointing towards his involvement with the murders.
During a personal prison meeting between the two, Glen said he was hired by Simpson to break into Brown's house and steal some expensive jewelry, and that Simpson had told him: "you may have to kill the bitch".
In a filmed interview, Glen's brother Clay asserts that his brother confessed his involvement. Rogers would later speak to a criminal profiler about the Goldman—Simpson murders, providing details about the crime and remarking that he had been hired by O.
Simpson to steal a pair of earrings and potentially murder Nicole. Best selling author and journalist Stephen Singular was approached about the O.
Simpson case from an anonymous source within the LAPD. According to the source, Mark Fuhrman used a broken piece of fence to pick up one of the bloody gloves found at the Bundy crime scene and place it in a blue evidence bag.
Singular was also told by the source that Fuhrman had some sort of relationship with Nicole Brown Simpson, and an internal affairs investigation conducted by the LAPD later revealed Fuhrman was overheard bragging to other officers about being intimate with Brown and describing her breast augmentation.
The source also revealed that Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid EDTA would be found in some of the blood evidence if tested and that lab technicians had mishandled Simpson's blood samples.
The families of Brown and Goldman expressed anger at the premise of My Brother the Serial Killer , with both families dismissing the claims by the Rogers family.
ID's president, Henry Schlieff, replied that the documentary's intention was not to prove Rogers had committed the crimes, but to "give viewers new facts and let them make up their own minds", and that he believed Simpson was guilty of the murders.

There's no such thing as 25 to life, as long as you got the cash to pay for Cochran", in reference to the "Not Guilty" verdict which, many believe, wouldn't have been the case if Simpson hadn't appointed Cochran as his lead attorney.
