Did O.J. Simpson have a secret accomplice?
An yet-to-be-released documentary is revisiting the vicious double homicide of Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. Simpson was famously acquitted of both crimes in 1995 (though he was later found responsible in a wrongful death civil suit), but Simpson’s ex-manager Norman Pardo promises that his new film, which has been in production for the past four years, will present evidence suggesting that the former NFL star “didn’t act alone,” Page Six reports.
“For the first time, the most thorough investigation into the murder ever conducted will be shared with America,” Pardo said, according to the outlet. “We have assembled a team of internationally renowned criminal investigators, experts, and lawyers. And they believe they can not only prove Simpson was involved in their deaths — but for the first time reveal he had at least one accomplice.”
Pardo and co-executive producer Dylan Howard reportedly plan to pitch the film to various networks next week in the hopes that it will eventually be released in June, around the same time as the 25th anniversary of the deaths of Brown Simpson and Goldman, according to Page Six.
Pardo was a friend and associate of Simpson’s for 20 years after he was acquitted, and claims to be in possession of more than 70 hours of previously unreleased footage featuring the former pro footballer and actor, the outlet reports.
Pardo isn’t the first to suggest that Brown Simpson and Goldman’s killer may have acted with the help of an accomplice; Simpson once suggested as much himself. His case recaptured national attention earlier this year when Fox aired a previously unreleased 2006 interview during which Simpson described how he hypothetically could have killed his ex and her associate with the help of a man known only as “Charlie.” The bizarre segment, which many viewed as a disturbingly cavalier confession, spawned the “DidOJConfess” hashtag on social media.
