LAPD rejects report on knife linked to O.J. Simpson case, report says
LOS ANGELES - On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Police Department rejected a report from TMZ claiming that tests on a knife linked to O.J. Simpson did not detect any DNA that could shed light on the 1994 murder case of Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman, according to a report by USA Today.
The knife was allegedly found on the property of Simpson’s former home years after the murders and given to a retired officer.
The officer put it in a toolbox until he recently took it out to have it framed.
The knife emerged two weeks ago and has sparked speculation as it might hold clues to the case.
TMZ reported that no DNA was found on the knife and cited “sources close to the situation.”
LAPD officer Jane Kim denied TMZ’s report and said that the knife is in the process of being tested and results could be known in a week or more.
TMZ stood firm with their story and continue to report that no DNA was found on the knife.
