Here's a scary thought:
O.J. Simpson may be a free man in 2017.
Indeed, The Juice may be on the loose just a few months from now after he comes up for parole next year following his conviction for armed robbery in 2008.
But will the former professional running back's lips also be loose?
That's a question now raised by Ron Shipp.
A friend of Simpson’s (who testified at the Trial of the Century in 1995 that Simpson had told him he had had dreams of killing Nicole Brown Simpson), Shipp tells The New York Daily News that O.J. is in terrible shape at the moment.
“The guy is in total torment today,” Shipp says, adding:
“Someone told me he is 300 pounds and he looks horrible. O.J. has always felt his appearance meant everything and now, deep down inside, he is starting to live with himself.”
It’s unclear whether or not Shipp has actually spoken to Simpson since the alleged killer became incarcerated in Nevada.
But he claims Simpson has hinted that he might one day confess to the murders of Nicole and Ron Goldman in 1994.
“I do,” Shipp said when asked whether he believes this is a possibility.
What makes him say so?
“I got a call about a conspiracy theory about Jason [Simpson’s son from his first marriage] being the killer and I thought, man, come on Juice, just say, ‘my son didn’t do it.’”
Jason Simpson, 24 at the time of the killings, is at the center of a documentary titled “Hard Evidence: O.J. Is Innocent.”
It will air in early 2017 on Investigation Discovery and it points to Simpson’s son as the culprit.
Simpson has been back in the news of late due to FX’s mesmerizing miniseries “People vs. O.J. Simpson."
ESPN and ABC will also kick off a six-part documentary on June 11 titled "O.J. Simpson: Made in America." It is receiving rave reviews.
So we now must ask: Did O.J. Simpson kill his wife?
