A Texas private investigator claims he knows who really killed Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman in 1994. And it wasn't OJ Simpson.
In a new book, 'OJ is Innocent and I Can Prove It,' William C. Dear alleges Simpson went on trial, and was acquitted of murder, in an effort to deflect attention from the true killer: His son Jason.
Dear says Simpson was at the crime scene -- but not until after his ex-wife and her friend had been stabbed to death.
After a six-year investigation, Dear says he has found circumstantial evidence that links Jason Simpson, 41, to the murders.
The private eye claims he dug through Jason Simpson's garbage and his abandoned storage locker in search of new evidence, the New York Post reported.
In the search, Dear says he found a hunting knife that forensic experts say is the murder weapon that was never recovered during the police investigation.
He also found photographs of Jason Simpson wearing a knit cap, similar to one that was discovered at the crime scene. Prosecutors were unable to link the hat to OJ Simpson.
Despite these alleged findings, Jason Simpson's DNA and fingerprints were never compared to those found at the crime scene. He was never interviewed by police, either, the Post reports.
OJ Simpson was the prime suspect for the murders because he helped to cover up his son's crimes and, in effect, allowed himself to take the fall, the book claims.
Jason Simpson, who is working as a chef in Miami, has not commented on the claims...probably because it's the first he's heard of them.
Having sat through and reported on the O.J Simpson criminal trial and the subsequent civil lawsuit I had no doubt that O.J. was guilty. Neither did the civil jury in Santa Monica which ordered him to pay $46 million to the relatives of the two murder victims.
