Ex-LAPD Detective: Knife in O.J. Simpson Case Could 'Easily' Be Eliminated as Evidence
More than two decades after O.J. Simpson was acquitted of a double murder that gripped the nation’s attention, a knife reportedly found on his former California estate is now being tested by the LAPD.
But just how important is this new finding?
Former LAPD officer Mark Fuhrman, a key investigator and a witness in the case, joined Fox and Friends Weekend to give his take on the latest discovery.
“I kind of wonder why the Los Angeles Police Department felt compelled to do a press conference on an item of possible evidence that they could quite easily eliminate just by viewing the knife,” he said.
“You don’t need forensics.”
Fuhrman noted, for example, that the knife would have to meet certain size requirements to have been able to inflict the wounds found on the two murder victims.
“It can only be a certain width, length and thickness, or it simply isn’t the weapon,” he explained. “The autopsy results, especially on Ron Goldman, were very specific.”
Fuhrman also weighed in on whether the retired police officer who reportedly kept the knife as a souvenir should have turned it in to authorities sooner.
