  • OJ Simpson on his 'hypothetical' murders: 'Everything was covered in blood'

Interest in Simpson has proved to be enduring.

The story of the Brown Simpson and Goldman murders has been fairly well covered through the years, including the recent FX series "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story" and ESPN's doc "O.J.: Made in America".

CHRIS DARDEN: I think he's confessed to murder.

Last night after dinner, I sat down to watch some of my favorite shows on Fox. In his conversation with the original interviewer, Judith Regan, O.J. detailed what happened on the night of June 12, 1994.

According to his "imagined" version of events, OJ said he confronted Nicole at her home with an accomplice named Charlie. O.J. admitted he always kept a knife in his vehicle "for the crazies because you can't have a gun".

Here's what Black people knew in 1995 and still do in 2018: Orenthal James "O. J". Simpson said he had words with Goldman and his ex-wife that escalated. When he arrived, Simpson said, he exchanged words with Goldman and Brown fell down, hurting herself. He then said Goldman assumed a martial arts stance, and Simpson said he recalled grabbing the knife. "I went and looked and sure enough, it was incredibly riveting". Except I'm standing there and there's all kinds of stuff around...

"Blood and stuff around", he replied.

Laughing, he adds: "I hate to say it, but this is hypothetical".

"It's very hard for me because its hypothetical - I know and I accept the fact that people are going to feel whatever they want to", said O.J. Simpson while laughing.

Twenty-five years later, The Simpsons producer said it was fortunate the team got Dr. Joyce Brothers instead or the show's anniversary will be for a completely different reason.

"I got angry at Ron, presumably thinking he was there on a date with Nicole and started screaming at him". "It was disgusting. It was absolutely frightful".

Simpson prosecutor Christopher Darden, who was seated on a panel to comment on the interview, saw it differently. She maintained she did not challenge Simpson on his statements because she wanted to keep him talking about the murders.

"Regan asks him: "So your kids were in the house" (at the time of the murder)".

"If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer" was eventually released after the Goldman family was awarded the rights to publication.

After watching it again, Wrong called the footage "jaw-dropping".

Simpson's children with Brown - son Justin, 29, and daughter Sydney, 32 - were five and eight years old when their mother was murdered.

He was later found liable for their deaths in lawsuits filed by their families and ended up in prison regardless, serving nine years for an unrelated armed robbery. He said he and Charlie then fled and tossed bloody clothes. West is married to Kim Kardashian, the daughter of onetime Simpson lawyer Robert Kardashian. He also speculated that Simpson, now on parole, is probably shaken by the interview.

"I have doubts", Kardashian told Walters in 1996.
