O.J. Simpson, the infamous former NFL Hall of Fame player says he avoids going back to Los Angeles out of fear of running into his ex-wife’s murderer.
In an interview with The Athletic, where he came in as No. 41 on their ranking of top 100 NFL Players in history, Simpson claimed that he avoids Southern California, where he was accused of killing two people – one of which was his ex wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, because the real killer might still be out there.
“People may think this is self-serving, but I might be sitting next to whoever did it,” he said in the interview where he maintained his innocence. “I really don’t know who did this.”
Simpson was shockingly acquitted of the double murder in October 1995, which led to controversy during the time due to O.J. being a high-profile celebrity and the evidence being overwhelmingly in favor of him being the assailant.
“I figured eventually somebody would confess to something, you know?” Simpson, whose real name is Orenthan James, continued on to say about the incident. “I had one suspect I told my lawyers to look at. I still think he might be involved, but I can’t talk about it.”
When the criminal case against Simpson first started in January 1995, Simpson was the only credible suspect and the prosecutors found a multitude of incriminating evidence to support their position.
