Former NFL running back O.J. Simpson detailed how he would have hypothetically murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in a never-before-seen 2006 interview. Fox aired that interview Sunday night on a program titled "The Lost Confession."
The interview was with book publisher Judith Regan, and it was aired in a two-hour special. The special covered several topics, including the night in question. During his hypothetical confession, Simpson brought up a man named Charlie, and claims after he took a knife from Charlie he blacked out.
"Taking the knife from Charlie, and to be honest, after that I don't remember. Except I'm standing there and there's all kind of stuff around ... blood and stuff around..." *breaks into laughter* - O.J. Simpson #DidOJConfess pic.twitter.com/eZA27EERli— Jordan Heck (@JordanHeckFF) March 12, 2018
Simpson was asked about removing a glove before taking a knife from Charlie, and continued to say he blacked out.
"I had no conscious, I have no memory of doing that. But obviously I must have because they found the glove there," Simpson said.
When asked if he's ever blacked out before, he said no.
After these clips aired, Christopher Darden, one of Simpson’s prosecutors from his criminal trial, said plainly on the program, "I think he's confessed to murder."
UPDATE: While Darden certainly believes Simpson provided a confession, the former NFL back wanted to make it clear that's not what happened. He spoke with Buffalo News, in an article published Friday, about the Fox special and provided some additional context on what happened.
"Listen, if I confessed 12 years ago, you would have heard about it 12 years ago," Simpson said.
He also commented at large about his life recently being played out on television. From ESPN's documentary "O.J.: Made in America," to the FX miniseries "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story," Simpson says he doesn't pay attention to any of it.
"I watch nothing of me," Simpson said." I didn't watch the [Fox special Sunday night] because I knew they were all haters, and people will say things that are just not true, and there's nobody there to challenge them, and that would piss me off. So why? It's a beautiful day. I'm about to go play golf. Why should I have some crap in my mind? You've got to let it go."
In 1995, Simpson was found not guilty of the murders of his ex-wife and Goldman. Two years later, Simpson was found liable for their deaths in a civil trial and was ordered to pay over $33 million to the families of the victims.
