An explosive new book claiming O.J. Simpson’s innocence in the 1994 murders of Nicole Simpson Brown and Ron Goldman hits shelves today.
William Dear, a private investigator who began studying the case 18 years ago, has penned an extremely detailed tell-all titled “O.J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It.”
The book, which studies almost two decades worth of investigative work on the case, points a finger at Simpson’s oldest son Jason as the true killer.
Dear believes O.J. took the fall in order to protect his then-24-year-old son Jason, now working in Miami as a cook.
“[Jason] had intermittent rage disorder. He was on probation and had recently assaulted his former employer with a knife,” Dear told The Village Voice blog. “But he was never interviewed by police.”
Cops allegedly never considered Jason’s involvement, and neglected to test his finger prints or DNA against forensic evidence collected at the crime scene.
Dear believes O.J’s ex-wife may have angered or embarrassed Jason in some way on the night of the murders, setting off his uncontrollable rage.
“I don’t think he went there with the intention of killing her,” Dear said. “But she probably made a mistake you shouldn’t make with people who are off their meds. She may have slapped him… we spoke with some of her former employees who said [Brown slapping someone] wouldn’t be out of the ordinary.”
The investigator alleges that O.J. showed up at the house after speaking with Jason, found the bodies of Brown and Goldman, and panicked… leading to the infamous car chase.
Dear also claims to have plenty of evidence against O.J.’s second-oldest, including a hunting knife similar to the blade used in the murders that was found in a storage unit allegedly owned by Jason.
The Texas-born author also claims to have purchased the car owned by Jason, but did not reveal what he found inside.
“It’s going on 18 years of my search for the truth, so nobody can say I’m just trying to make a dollar off this,” said Dear, who claims he doesn’t care about the money made from the book. He added, “I want truth and justice. My hope is they form a special grand jury to take a look at [my investigation].”
