O.J. Simpson Offers ‘Hypothetical’ Account of Double-Murder

The 2006 interview with Fox was shelved for 12 years.

In a 2006 interview with Fox, O.J. Simpson gave a “hypothetical” account of the double-murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. His comments were made as part of a promotional effort for a book, If I Did It, but Fox shelved the interview after an outcry for 12 years. The interview recently aired, and in it, Simpson told the host, Judith Regan, that he went to the Brentwood, California house where the murders were committed with Charlie and after encountering Goldman, “I started to have words with him.” Simpson also said that on the night they were murdered, he was at the scene, “grabbed the knife” and, the next thing he knew, he was standing in “all kinds of … blood and stuff.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Simpson provided his take on the 911 call Nicole Brown Simpson made in 1993, in which he could be heard yelling in the background as she sounded very distressed. During the murder trial, this call was used as evidence. During the call, she says he had “broken into” her house and was “ranting and raving outside in the front yard.” O.J. Simpson, however, said that he was simply acting out of concern for his kids, and did what “any father would do.”

“I think he confessed to murder,” said Christopher Darden, one of the prosecutors in Simpson’s murder trial, of the footage that aired Sunday.
