It’s Not A Match: Knife Found Not The Murder Weapon From O.J. Simpson Case

LOS ANGELES — “If the glove doesn’t fit, you must acquit,” said O.J. Simpson‘s attorney, Johnnie Cochran and 22 years after the biggest murder case in U.S. history and nearly a month of testing after a police officer said he had found the weapon used the night of the murder of Nicole Simpson Brown and Ron Goldman, the Los Angeles police have concluded that the knife is in fact not the murder weapon.

Investigators ruled the knife out after weeks of forensic tests, Police Captain Andy Neiman said Friday.

“We have confirmed, we have determined, there is no nexus,” he said.

Police reported last month, that the knife had been in the possession of a retired Los Angeles police officer for more than a dozen years. Opps! The officer said he received it from a construction worker who told him he had found it while working on a crew tearing down Simpson’s Brentwood estate.

Simpson was acquitted of stabbing to death his ex-wife and Goldman on June 12, 1994, outside her condominium. Over the years, police have examined many knives but have never found a match.
