Orenthal James “O.J.” Simpson was once one of the most famous people in the world before he became infamous – accused of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her lover Ron Goldman.
It was called “The Trial of The Century” in the mid-1990’s because the gravity of an ultra famous retired Hall of Fame NFL athlete and up-and-coming movie star murdering his Caucasian ex-wife amid Los Angeles racial tensions had the eyes of the entire nation. It was shocking that a celebrity of his stature could do something so heinous.
But now we’re learning of a new stunning revelation about the case that will certainly make your jaw drop.
Hall of Famer, O.J. Simpson,is still considered to be one of the great running backs of his generation despite the controversy that surrounded him later in life.
The Buffalo Bills Hall of Famer faced a fifteen-month-long double murder trial in 1994 for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman –resulting in not-guilty verdicts, which was controversial because it infuriated some but was celebrated by others.
Make no mistake,you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone – regardless of race or gender – who doesn’t believe that Simpson was responsible for those crimes, and the jury failed the people in that regard.
And his former manager, Norman Pardo, pitched a new documentary that claims Simpson had an accomplice in the 1994 double murders.

The ex-manager describes himself as a “friend” of O.J. for nearly 20 years after his trial and he’s been developing this project with Dylan Howard who is a regular producer on Discovery ID series An American Murder Mystery, which handles these kinds of shocking criminal revelations all of the time.
Pardo says that he has over 70 hours of video of the disgraced former NFL star saying,“For the first time, the most thorough investigation into the murder ever conducted will be shared with America. We have assembled a team of internationally renowned criminal investigators, experts and lawyers.”
Those serious allegations would’ve put a new twist on“The Trial of the Century” if the prosecutors revealed that.
In fact, Pardo goes so far as to say, “And they believe they can not only prove Simpson was involved in their deaths — but for the first time reveal he had at least one accomplice.”
After that trial, O.J.’s hope for a “normal” life wasn’t in the cards for him.
The Goldman family won a thirty-plus million dollar civil suit against Simpson, so he booked it to Miami, Florida.
Years later, he ended up in jail again after he robbed a sports memorabilia handler that supposedly had a bunch of his “stolen” personal belongings.
Simpson was sentenced to thirty plus years in prison, which was the exact same amount of time the civil suit awarded the Goldman’s in monetary funds that he owed them. That wasn’t a coincidence. He only served nine of those years before being released on parole.

One was the ESPN Academy Award winning four-part series documentary called O.J.: Made in America and the other was the FX dramatic series called The People v. O.J. Simpson, which was part of their American Crime Story brand.
The docuseries focused on Simpson’s celebrity as an African American and the race relations in Los Angeles leading up to his trial. Simpson never saw himself as an African American but when he was charged, that community that he ostracized embraced him as some sort of African American symbol.
The FX series largely focused on the race relations within the prosecutor and defenders’ offices.
Neither of those projects even mentions that Simpson had an accomplice.
But this theory is brand new.
