Nicole Brown Simpson was brutally murdered in front of her home on June 12, 1994, along with her friend, Ronald Goldman.
After accusations that her ex-husband, OJ Simpson, was the murderer and a lengthy and controversial trial, OJ was acquitted.
However, many continue to believe it was he who committed the crime and he was eventually found responsible for the murders in a later civil trial and was ordered to pay the family of Nicole Brown Simpson $33.5 in damages.
Many of us old enough to remember the trial can conjure up images of a the car chase involving OJ Simpson in a white Bronco after the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson, and many could probably tell the tale of the too-small gloves that led to the “if it doesn’t fit, you must acquit” defense battle cry.
But, thanks to forgotten footage of an interrogation before the later civil trial involving Nicole Brown Simpson’s family, there will be even more evidence to add to our knowledge about the inner workings of that tumultuous relationship.
In the tapes, which will air in the upcoming documentaries O.J. Speaks: The Hidden Tapes on Oct. 1 and The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story on Sept. 30, OJ Simpson admits to physically harming Nicole Brown Simpson.
The tape shows Goldman family lawyer Daniel Petrocelli questioning OJ Simpson. In one instance, Petrocelli asks, “Did you physically hurt her?” to which Simpson simply replies, “Yes.”
He added, “Because I shouldn’t have handled the situation the way I did. I’ve – all my life with Nicole, no matter what was going on, I handled it without being physical with her. And that time I got physical with her and I’m ashamed of it. I wish it not had happened.”
Many other damning statements appear in the video and will be complete in the upcoming documentaries, but Ronald Goldman’s father calls many of the things that come out of OJ’s mouth in the tapes “unfathomable” among other things.
