A buried knife was found on the property of O.J. Simpson by a construction worker. The knife was found several years ago and given to an LAPD officer, who was working across the street from the estate.

Apparently the officer took the knife to his home and kept it for years.

In January of 2016, the cop who recently retired contacted a friend who worked in LAPD’s Robbery Homicide Division to receive the Departmental Record number of the Nicole Brown Simpson/Ronald Goldman murder case. The cop wanted to engrave the record number on a frame with the knife he planned to hang on his wall.

The friend who worked in the RHD demanded the cop to turn over the knife and he did.

The folding buck knife is now currently being tested for hair and fingerprints by LAPD in a top secret investigation. A source involved in the investigations claims the cops who have seen the knife think there could be blood residue on it but it’s extremely rusted and stained after all this time.

Although O.J. wasn’t found guilty and the case is still open, he can’t be prosecuted again on account of double jeopardy.

We’ll keep you updated as the story unfolds.
