O.J. Simpson Reportedly Confessed 1994 Murders To Book Publisher

After years nonchalantly alluding to the brutal 1994 murders Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, O.J. Simpson appears to have finally confessed to his crimes 24 years after the fact. The confession was allegedly made directly from OJ’s lawyer when calling the book publisher for If I Did It, saying that the former football star was ready to admit that he had murdered his ex-wife Nicole and restaurant server Ron Goldman. The news was revealed to TMZ through an outtake the upcoming television special “OJ Simpson: The Lost Confession?” which is set to air on Fox this Sunday. 

The video will not be aired along with the rest the episode, but, if true, the age-old question if O.J. committed the crimes can finally come to a close. Simpson’s lawyer allegedly called the publisher his book, If I Did It, and said that he would be ready to confess to the murders on one condition: that the title the book remained the same instead the proposed “I Did It.” The publisher, Judith Regan, shared the news herself, stating that O.J. wanted to keep ‘If’ in the name to cover in dealing with his kids.

The development is remarkable, albeit probably not for some, and it certainly makes us curious to tune into the show to see if any further information is released. View Regan’s interview below, which will not be aired on Sunday and read more here.
