In an unearthed interview from 2006, O.J. Simpson says of the events of June 12, 1994, “I remember I grabbed the knife, I do remember that portion.”
The interview, conducted by Judith Regan, who collaborated on Simpson’s 2007 book “If I Did It” about the murders of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman that night, wouldn’t find its way to viewers. Until now.
Much like in the book, Simpson in the interview shares what he calls a “purely hypothetical” description of the killings.
“First of all, this is very difficult for me to do this,” the NFL Hall of Famer says in a portion of the interview uncovered by TMZ. “It’s difficult for me, because it’s hypothetical. I know and I accept the fact that people are gonna feel whatever they’re gonna feel.”
Despite the hypothetical premise of the book and the interview, when speaking to Regan he veers into first person, referring to the killer as “I.” Simpson also says the killer was aided by a friend named “Charlie.”
“I don’t know why [Charlie] had been by Nicole’s house, but he told me, ‘You wouldn’t believe what’s going on over there.’ And I remember thinking, ‘Well whatever’s going on over there’s got to stop.'”
Later in the interview, he recalls the gory scene of the crime.
“Where are the bloody clothes? So somebody had to get rid of the bloody clothes,” he says later in the interview, which will air on Sunday, March 11, at 8 p.m. “We’ve all seen the grizzly pictures, after. So yeah, I think everything was covered, would have been covered in blood. … It was horrible. It was absolutely horrible.”
