LOS ANGELES, CA (WWBT) - The Los Angeles Police Department is examining a knife found at the former Simpson residence more than 20 years after the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
The officer is now retired and cannot face any administrative action from the LAPD though he could face criminal charges. A forensic analysis, which includes DNA, blood and hair analysis is now being conducted on the knife. Even if it were to tie the murders to O.J. Simpson, he could not face charges in the homicides as he was already found not guilty at trial in 1995.
Police officials are still working to determine if the knife is, in fact, evidence in the case or whether there's any truth to the story.
The Rockingham Avenue mansion was demolished in 1998, four years after the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
A Dateline special on the case will air on Sunday at 9 p.m. on NBC12.
