New evidence, lost for nearly two decades, has resurfaced and may shed light on the O.J. Simpson murder case.
a construction worker found a buried knife in the yard of O.J. Simpson’s former estate as long ago as 1998.
The worker allegedly gave the knife to a police officer who was patrolling the area, off-duty while working at a movie site, who never turned it in.
The police officer retired earlier this year and told a friend at the Los Angeles Police Department about the knife. That worker told his superiors who demanded the officer hand over the knife.
The LAPD is secretly investigating. The knife is being tested for hair and fingerprints.
Simpson was found not guilty in the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman.
The murder weapon was never discovered.
O.J. Simpson cannot be prosecuted again due to double jeopardy laws.
