The People vs. OJ: LAPD confirm that a knife with blood stains was found buried on OJ Simpson’s estate in 1998

Some of you may be currently engrossed in the smash hit U.S. series American Crime Story The People Vs. OJ which tells all about the infamous story about the trial of the former American football star who was charged with the brutal murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman on the 12th of June 1994.

The trial which lasted for just over year saw OJ being found innocent, but now it seems a possible piece of evidence was found at the star’s former estate where the brutal murders occurred. According to the entertainment website TMZ.com and the Los Angeles Times, the LAPD have confirmed that a construction worker discovered the blade years after the killings and handed it to a police officer, but detectives only recently learned of its existence.

It is believed the builder discovered the folding buck knife buried at the perimeter of Simpson’s estate in Los Angeles’ affluent Brentwood area, in 1998 when the property was being demolished. Reports suggest the worker allegedly gave the possible murder weapon to a traffic officer, who then apparently kept it as a souvenir instead of taking instead of handing it into evidence department.

Simpson is currently serving a prison sentence in Nevada after being found guilty of armed robbery and kidnapping in 2007.
