According to reports, a blood-stained knife which was found buried on O.J.'s property years ago by a construction worker, is now being tested by the LAPD.
Evidently, after the construction worker found the knife, he handed it over to an off-duty police officer, chilling near the former crime scene, a while back, possibly even as early as 1998, but the officer just kept it lying around his home instead of giving it to the appropriate authorities because he planned to have the potential murder weapon framed for his wall. Apparently a nice print from IKEA wouldn't do for this gentleman.
The officer ultimately got caught when he called another cop buddy to get the departmental-record number for the the murder case so he could engrave it in the frame, TMZ reports. Classy.
His pal ratted him out and he was ultimately forced to hand over the evidence.
Now, detectives are analyzing the knife to see if it contains DNA that could link it to O.J., Nicole Brown Simpson, or Ron Goldman.
Can we discuss how eerie this timing is, given the popularity of the FX drama? Ryan Murphy, are you behind this? Just kidding! ...Sorta.
According to the New York Post, even if O.J.'s DNA is on the knife, he likely can't be prosecuted again thanks to double-jeopardy laws. Regardless, he'll be serving the next 33 years in prison for robbing some sports memorabilia off a dude in Las Vegas at gunpoint.
