OJ SIMPSON /// PART 1 ////// 25

OJ Simpson /// Part 1 ////// 25

TrueCrimeGarage

June 13, 1994 just after midnight, the bodies of Ronald Goldman and Nicole Brown are found near Nicole's condo. Both had been stabbed several times and Nicole's throat had been cut so severally that she was nearly decapitated. What would take place over the next several days and the polarizing trail are still fresh in our minds 20 years later. What has remained a mystery is the actions and movements of persons in the last few hours of June 12. Today we revisit this crime to go over the timeline of that day's events and present the evidence that sometimes is lost in the muck of drama and glamour. Did the famous football star kill his former wife and young Ron Goldman, we all know he was acquitted. We will discuss the evidence that points towards OJ's guilt and explore a few other suspects that you may not have heard of.

    Just started the episode but just so you know "Pliny" is pronounced to rhyme with "skinny" not to rhyme "tiny". :) He was an ancient roman author. Ok now back to the episode. Looking forward to it!

    "..cares enough about the dog community..." Someone's been listening to 'all killa no filla'! Love you guys, cannot for the life of me figure out how to get into my itune account (sad face) so i plug you on all reddit, facebook, etc. lists asking for fantastic podcasts. Thank you for opening with the 911 tapes, it is terrible these two people were murdered, and two kids lost their mom, and no one called to account. Although Mr. Simpson's life has been in the toilet for quite a while. happy day! steph

    that may be the case, but the brewers pronounce it differently, like PLY-nee. So if you're going for the correct pronunciation of the word, you may be correct, but the name of the beer is prounounced PLY-nee as in 'tiny'.

    I am thrilled that you are unwrapping the o.j. thing. I never really had time for it while it was in the news, etc, so it seems like a fresh case as you discuss it. Right on, gents. By the way, I have listened to every episode. You are like my favorite wine. Constantly improving with time.

    I was just a kid when the oj trial was happening. I wanted to be a lawyer until the verdict was announced. Then I decided that sometimes the justice system is wrong and couldn't spend my life doing that job that's so disappointing!! I wish I had stuck to it now!! 😂😂

    I admit it took me awhile to listen to this one as it's been so prolific in the media with the anniversary and the mini-series. I felt like it's all been said and it wouldn't be all that interesting because of that. But the way you went back and forth on the timeline between the players really was interesting. I didn't think it could be done with this case, lol. This is definitely the best true crime podcast around. Well done.

    During the "slow speed" car chase, I was working two office spaces down from someone who knew OJ and Al Cowlings (I don't want to put him on blast, but let me just say I got him to sign a picture for me for my mother). I heard him say to his secretary, who sat directly outside my office "If Al Cowlings calls, FIND ME. If OJ calls, I'm not here." That gave me an interesting perspective on the case. I also vividly remember the verdict. My then-boyfriend called me, crying, I mean literally crying, at the injustice. I said, well, now you know how Black people feel every day. I thought it was actually very instructive for a ton of white people.

    Love the podcast, but, Captain, you missed the mark on why Nicole didn't want OJ around when you talked about them just starting to drift apart post-divorce. She didn't want him around because he refused to leave her alone, which is classic behavior for an abuser. It takes the average abused woman 7 attempts to permanently remove herself from an abusive relationship. This is a great case study on why it takes so long to permanently end the relationship. They were divorced and he still wouldn't stop treating her like his property or respect her wishes to leave her alone. I've seen theories that Nicole had finally made it known to him with finality that the relationship was over, and that is what and him over the edge.

    Loved the podcast. I do appreciate the attempt to examine facts and avoid the low hanging fruit. That said, i'm curious why you guy examined the timeline but didn't mention the glaring conflict in Jill Shively's testimony. She reported seeing OJ at the exact same time that the Limo driver was talking to OJ. I think this is the real reason that the prosecution didn't put her on the stand. I think it's laughable to say she would be a bad witness for accepting money for her story yet they put Fuhrman on the stand knowing his history full well. Shively testimony would conflict w/ the Limo driver so they chose one.

    Also, I think you guys should do an honest evaluation of the case from the defense perspective w/o dropping everything into the "jury revenge" basket. I don't know if OJ did it but i think that any honest evaluation would see that the jury EASILY had reasonable doubt. There are so few people that will approach this case honestly that's it's frustrating.

    Just got around to the OJ episodes. After hearing Nic say "I think OJ was intelligent "...HOLD UP...Oj was NOT intelligent, had no street smarts and was an entitled asshole. Made the comment " I'm not black, I'm Oj Simpson" ...that being said, have you guys watched the 30 for 30: OJ Made in Ameroca? Way better than Jeffrey Toobins book the FX movie is based on. Thoughts? Maybe an OJ update? Starts w/ OJ in HS all the way to the Nevada incident. It's a good watch. Also, Nic talks about Faye...you do realize if Nicole was still alive, she'd totally be on Kardashian trash TV and she'd be "a real housewife" on some show flipping tables, just like all her friends.
