Private investigator William Dear seemingly proved that O. J. Simpson didn't kill his ex-wife, Nicole Simpson. The murderer, Dear claims, was O. J.'s son, Jason Simpson.

Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman's deaths were almost three decades ago. Even though police arrested O. J. Simpson as the main suspect and investigated the case thoroughly, he pleaded not guilty, and nobody was convicted.

O. J. became the main suspect for several reasons. When the police went to his home to inform him about Nicole's passing, they found blood in his Bronco and a bloody glove that matched another one near the victims' bodies.

MAIN SUSPECT

Also, the retired athlete was not home at the time – the same night Nicole and Goldman were killed, he flew from the Los Angeles International Airport to Chicago. He returned home and was arrested the following day after police informed him about Nicole's passing.

Days later, O. J. became a fugitive, and the famous Bronco chase took place. After surrendering at his home, he landed in jail without bail.

His trial began on July 22, 1994 – 40 days after Nicole and Goldman's death. After going to court for a year, the jury acquitted and declared him not guilty.

William Dear, a private investigator from Texas, believes he discovered who the murder was: Jason Simpson, the former NFL star's son. Dear claims the Los Angeles Police Department committed a "sad miscarriage of justice" with their investigation.

CRIMINAL PAST

One of the most shocking aspects of the case that the LAPD supposedly overlooked was Jason's criminal past. Before Nicole's murder, he had a track record of violent attacks.

In December 1992, for example, he was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon and battery for attacking Paul Goldberg, his boss at the Revival Café Restaurant in Los Angeles.

Jason repeatedly claimed to have forgotten details of his criminal past.

According to sources, the fight's details are not precise, but it was an issue over money after Jason was fired. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disturbing the peace and was sentenced to two years of probation and ten days of community service.

A while later, Jason attacked his girlfriend and sliced off her hair with a knife. It is essential to point out that he needed to take medication for epilepsy and rage attacks.

However, when Nicole and Goldman's murders took place, Jason had stopped taking his meds for two months. He had reportedly assaulted another girlfriend during that time, which seemed to prove that his rage became unhinged.

MOTIVES AND MEANS

At the time of the crime, Jason was 24 years old and had known Nicole since his early teens, when she and his father began dating. As years went by, he reportedly developed an obsession with her, especially because he frequently visited nightclubs with her.

During his deposition, Jason repeatedly claimed to have forgotten his criminal past's details, including an arrest after the incident with his boss.

He confessed, though, that he loved Nicole and didn't consider her a "second mother." He also complained that Nicole had changed: she used to be a young and fun-loving person but became a "beautiful mother."

When she and O. J. parted ways, she changed again, so Jason could see who she was for the first time. As per the motive, the theory suggests it was a mixture of jealousy and frustration.

The same night Nicole died, Jason was working as a chef for the first time. He invited his family (Nicole included) to the restaurant he worked for a meal he would prepare.

However, she canceled at the last minute to go to another restaurant, Mezzaluna, where Goldman, the second victim, was a waiter. Jason admitted during his deposition that he was "kind of hurt" that she didn't show up.

If anybody messes with my family, I’ll kill them,” Jason wrote.

THE MURDERS AND AFTERMATH

Enraged that Nicole chose to go to Goldman's restaurant – one she used to go "all the time" – instead of supporting him on such an important night, Jason supposedly went to her Brentwood house and confronted her.

According to Dear, Jason used a Gerber Mark 5 I replica with the initials "JS" engraved on it to kill Nicole and Goldman. Dear is so sure about it because he found that knife in Jason's storage facility when it went up for auction due to lack of payment. Dear added:

"It matches the lacerations on the top of Nicole Simpson's skull. As far as we're concerned and some of the top metal experts in the country this is the murder weapon."

After allegedly killing Nicole and Goldman, Jason contacted O. J. for help. The former NFL player knew about Jason's anger issues as he had previously attended meetings when Jason was in a psychiatric unit.

O. J. then went to Nicole's house, which explains why his DNA was there. Dear added that the reason why the LAPD overlooked Jason as a primary suspect was that they made up their mind O. J. was the killer, so they went "no further."

The private investigator added that the police committed a "sad miscarriage of justice" for not interviewing Jason. Considering that he was on probation, had been in a psychiatric unit, was not taking his medicine to control his rage disorder, and had previously attacked two women, it should have been done.

MORE EVIDENCE

If that wasn't enough, Dear presented more evidence: the black knit cap found at the crime scene had animal and human hair that was not O. J.'s.

Dear believed it belonged to Jason as he found a photo of O. J.'s son playing with his dog and wearing a similar "if not the exact same cap" found at Nicole's Brentwood home.

In Jason's unit, Dear also found his diaries from 1994, where he supposedly wrote that he cut away his problems with the knife and was tired of being Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. "If anybody messes with my family, I'll kill them," Jason wrote.

People have created other theories of who may have killed Nicole and Goldman over the years. One of them suggests that O. J. supposedly hired a serial killer to do it.

Another one blames O. J., who supposedly only did it because he was mind-controlled by the Illuminati. So far, it is unclear who committed the crimes, but nobody has been convicted.
