The ex-LAPD detective, who worked on the murder investigation of Nicole Simpson in 1994, now lives in Idaho and is lending a hand in the gruesome quadruple stabbing case. In an interview with DailyMail.com, Fuhrman, 70, described the forensic clues investigators will be picking out from the blood-stained crime scene including blood spray, saliva and fibers – and zeroed in on two terrifying leads. The veteran cop revealed police have now spoken to students who claim one of the victims, Kaylee Goncalves, complained of a 'stalker' in the weeks before her killing. And he said detectives will also be urgently chasing up the disturbing killings of animals nearby, including a pet dog three miles from the crime scene that was skinned and...
    (CNN)There is a common thread between the 1995 acquittal of O.J. Simpson and the 2021 acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse -- a jury and trial consultant named Jo-Ellan Dimitrius.She developed the jury profile in Simpson's case and now, decades later, worked "hand in hand" with Rittenhouse's attorneys to help build a profile for the "right" juror in his case."In O.J.'s case because we had done so much pretrial research, we knew that there was a certain demographic that was going to be more open to what our defense was," she told CNN.At the time, it was a female African American with a high school education or less, she recalled. In Rittenhouse's case, however, she said, "We didn't find anything that was predictive."Rittenhouse is latest symbol of a nation divided on guns, crime and protestSo, they dug.

    LAS VEGAS — O.J. Simpson will keep fighting recent court orders in Nevada that he owes at least $60 million in judgments stemming from the 1994 killings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman, his lawyer said Friday. Attorney Malcolm LaVergne said he intends to ask the Nevada Supreme Court to overturn one judge’s order to pay the slain man’s father, Fred Goldman, and another judge’s order in favor of Paul Dorsey, a Connecticut man holding rights to collect the wrongful death claim of Ron Goldman’s mother, Sharon Rufo. "I will be appealing both of those," LaVergne said, "and there will be more motions at the trial level." The flurry of court activity represents another turn in a more than two-decade fight by Ron Goldman’s parents to collect some $33.5 million that a California civil jury ordered Simpson to pay in 1997, two years after he was acquitted of double murder in what came to be known as "The Trial of the Century."

    F. Lee Bailey, a Texas criminal attorney known for defending O.J. Simpson and Patty Hearst among others, died at the age of 87, according to The New York Times. According to the Times, Bailey’s son Bendrix Lee Bailey said that the lawyer died in hospice care in Georgia Thursday morning, though he did not elaborate on the cause of death.  Bailey was born in Waltham, Mass., and attended Harvard University. However, he dropped out of the Cambridge school to join the U.S. Marine Corps. He eventually graduated from Boston University law school in 1960. Before his work with Simpson, Bailey faced some tough defeats in the court room.  Known for his theatrical style in the court room, Bailey defended the Boston Strangler but lost the case. The man tried in the case, Albert DeSalvo, had confessed to Bailey separately about being the strangler who was sought in the killing of 13 people in the 1960s, according to The Washington Post.  He also failed to win a case brought against Patty Hearst, a publishing heiress charged and convicted in connection to a bank robbery.  However,...

    The Daily Caller’s Vince Coglianese reacted Friday to former NFL running back O.J. Simpson’s comments on the Ma’Khia Bryant case and NBA superstar Lebron James’ tweets about it. Referring to Simpson as a “world famous stabbing expert,” Coglianese noted the irony that Simpson had to tell James to “wait for the facts” when James himself had previously urged others not to tweet when it was possible that they didn’t have all of the information about a situation.

    OJ Simpson said Tuesday Derek Chauvin used “unnecessary force” in his apprehension of George Floyd while defending Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) “call to arms” regarding her Saturday comments on Chauvin’s trial. “I thought it was a classic case of depraved indifference. I thought it was unnecessary force and no matter which side you’re on,” Simpson said. “I think everybody would pretty much have to agree that if those deputies and Chauvin would have gotten off of George Floyd, there was no chance George Floyd was going to get up and try to run… try to attack them in handcuffs, ” he said. “That didn’t seem to be his personality.” Simpson continued, “It seemed that the only problem was that, he has a little problem with claustrophobia, I guess, and the smallness of the backseat of that [police] car, which had to be pretty tough on a guy his size.” Simpson also said he “understood” what Rep. Maxine Waters was saying regarding her “call to arms… not to physical harm but a cause to work and vote.” House Speaker Kevin McCarthy called...
    OJ Simpson on Tuesday said he believes former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin "deserves" to be convicted for the death of George Floyd, while also reacting to recent comments made by Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who is facing criticism for encouraging protesters to "stay on the street" and to "get more confrontational." Simpson, 73, made the remarks in a video posted to his Twitter account with the caption: "Verdict Watch." Jurors in the Chauvin trial began deliberations Monday after weeks of testimony from dozens of witnesses. He is charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in connection with the May 25, 2020 death of Floyd. The trial came after nearly a year of protests and riots over video footage showing Chauvin pinning his knee on Floyd's neck. A verdict was expected to be announced Tuesday. In his video, Simpson said he hoped there is "some kind of verdict, a conviction. I think the man deserves it."

    Jurors in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin began deliberations Monday, as defense attorneys voiced concerns about the lack of sequestering given the extensive media coverage the death of George Floyd has received. As the nation awaits the verdict, authorities around the country are preparing for possible protests and unrest.  Nearly three decades ago, fears of violence and a divided public also awaited another verdict in the high-profile trial of O.J. Simpson, who was accused of brutally killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman in Los Angeles.  Unlike the jury in Chauvin's trial, jurors in the 1995 Simpson trial were sequestered for nearly nine months as they heard testimony from dozens of witnesses before rendering a controversial not guilty verdict after less than four hours of deliberation. The media exposure of the trial was the first of its kind, with news outlets dedicating 24-hour coverage to the trial and analysis. Crowds of supporters and Simpson opponents gathered daily at the courthouse as prosecutors and Simpson's defense lawyers -- nicknamed the "Dream Team" -- made their arguments in what was...

Jared Siskin/Patrick McMullan via Getty Images Alan Dershowitz says he wishes his name wasn't redacted from Ghislaine Maxwell's newly unsealed 2016 deposition. He told Insider it should have never been redacted in the first place. Dershowitz has long held that unsealing everything in the lawsuit between Maxwell and Virginia Giuffre would prove his innocence of a sexual misconduct accusation from Giuffre, who's also accused Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein of misconduct. The 418-page deposition also redacts other boldfaced names, like those of Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew, but they are easily identifiable. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    O. J. Simpson has spoken out after Jeffrey Toobin, who wrote a book about his trial, was suspended from The New Yorker after exposing himself during a Zoom call. “Damn, Jeffrey Toobin,” Simpson said in a Twitter video. “At least Pee-wee Herman was in an X-rated movie theatre. I’m just saying.” Pee-wee Herman is the fictional character portrayed by Paul Reubens who pled guilty to indecent exposure in 1991. Toobin wrote “The Run of His Life: The People v. O. J. Simpson,” a book about the court case surrounding the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.  O. J. Simpson was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife and her friend, but he was later ordered to pay the victims’ families $33.5 million after being found liable in a civil case. Toobin said in a statement to Vice apologizing for his actions that he “thought no one on the Zoom call could see” him.
