Well, we'll be damned.

With the 20th anniversary of the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman coming up, Ron’s dad Fred Goldman is speaking out about his son’s murder.
In an interview, the 73-year-old explains that O.J. Simpson, who he simply calls “the killer,” got off on the murders because of a suitcase of evidence that Robert Kardashian carried around!
Fred believes that if the items in the case had been brought to light in court, that his son’s murderer would have been brought to justice.
However, O.J. went around town after that, committing MORE crimes, and on October 3, 2008, he went back to jail for kidnapping, robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, and conspiracy. The former NFL legend was sent to Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada, which is where Fred and his daughter Kim sent a card to O.J., simply saying, “We hope you enjoy your new home!”
In fact, Kim still struggles with Ron’s death so much that she wrote a book titled My 20-year battle with O.J. Simpson… Can't Forgive.
As the years have gone by, Fred has kept tabs on O.J. and any rumors that may crop up. One time he heard that "someone in the prison found OJ attractive" and that he may have been raped. When Ron asked the authorities about this they said, "We know nothing about that!" And when Fred asked them for clarification, they said "it means what you think it means."
Yikes! It's always best to clarify things like that so they don't become rumors… unless it's true of course.
We sincerely hope that Fred, Kim, and their family find closure someday, even if it doesn't mean brining O.J. to full justice for the crime they're convinced he committed. As for Mr. Kardashian's suitcase of evidence, the world may never know!
