According to reports, a construction worker found a knife buried on the perimeter of O.J. Simpson's former estate in Los Angeles, California.
It is being tested by the LAPD in a top secret investigation.
In an incredible story broken by TMZ, the construction worker came forward with the discovery, though it's not clear when it was found.
Accounts range from "several years ago" to 1998, when the house was demolished, but the weapon in question is a folding buck knife.
As for why it took several or many years to get this point?
The story has been buried (pun not intended), from the sounds of it, ever since the construction worker flagged down an LAPD cop.
After he found the knife on the perimeter of O.J.'s former property, he saw the officer and handed it over, telling him where he found it.
The police officer, who worked in the department's traffic division, was off duty and working security for a movie shoot across the street.
TMZ's sources claim the officer took the knife home and kept it ... for a very long time, until he retired from the force earlier this year.
He contacted a friend in LAPD's Robbery Homicide Division (RHD), but not to hand over the potential evidence in the Trial of the Century.
Allegedly, he wanted to ask his friend the DR (Departmental Record) number for the Nicole Brown Simpson-Ronald Goldman murder case.
Why? To have it engraved in the frame he would put the knife in to hang on the wall as some sort of memento. You can't make this up.
The Robbery Homicide Division was outraged for obvious reasons, and demanded he surrender the knife immediately, which he did.
As such, they only recently got their hands on the knife, which is currently being tested in a top secret investigation for hair and fingerprints.
The Serology Unit will then test it for any DNA and biological evidence belonging to the killer or the victim(s) that may still be on it.
So the obvious question: Is it ... THE knife?
It's extremely rusted and stained, apparently, and 22 years after the killings, it could be hard to find usable information on the weapon.
If you watch The People v. O.J. Simpson or know anything about the trial, you know this was the one piece of evidence never found.
There have been crazy theories such as Kris Jenner hiding the murder weapon, but it never turned up and O.J. was found not guilty.
Because of that not guilty verdict, interestingly, it remains an open case and the police can (and will) continue investigating any leads.
O.J. cannot be prosecuted again for the same crime, however, because he was acquitted and that would constitute double jeopardy.
Of course ... Khloe Kardashian's rumored dad is in jail on kidnapping and robbery charges, so at least he's locked up for something?
