O.J. Simpson in 2006 Interview: If I Did It, I Had Help

Fox will air a previously unseen 2006 interview with O.J. Simpson in which the notorious football great hypothesizes about what might have happened the night his ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman were murdered. O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession? will air March 11, and TMZ reports that it will contain an explosive theory from Simpson himself: that an accomplice may have joined him that night, if he’d carried out the killings. Sources familiar with the program told TMZ that: “It sounded like a first-person account of the murders and, although it’s not a clear confession, it’s in that arena. We’re told Simpson flat-out talks about an accomplice who was with him at Nicole’s home. He did not name the accomplice.” The interview was scheduled to run 12 years ago—alongside a ghost-written book from Simpson that was to be titled If I Did It—but both the interview and the book were canned due to a backlash from the public and families of Brown and Goldman. The families are reported to have given their consent for Fox to finally air the interview this month.
