Married Nicole Brown in 1985 (second wife) Had two children (Arnelle and Jason) with first wife Marguerite OJ and Nicole had Sydney and Justin
Pleaded no contest to a domestic violence charge in 1989 Separated from Nicole Brown Divorced in 1992
Blood was found in OJ Simpson’s Bronco Blood drops were on OJ’s driveway and in the foyer of his home Blood soaked sock was located in OJ Simpson’s bedroom- bloodstained glove was in his residence DNA extracted and profiled from each bloodstained article
Trail of DNA leaving the crime scene was consistent with OJ’s profile- as was the DNA found entering Simpson’s home Simpson’s DNA profile was found in the Bronco along with that of both victims The glove contained the DNA profiles of Nicole and Ron, and the sock had Nicole’s DNA profile
Simpsons blood was found at the murder scene- victims’ blood was found inside his car and home- At the scene- there were five blood drops leading away from the slain bodies of Nicole and Ron- toward the rear alley- four of which were immediately to the left of the bloody size 12 shoes prints Killer had been wounded on the left side of his body- Morning after the murders, Simpson was observed by the police to be wearing a bandage on his left middle finger When the bandage was removed that afternoon- he had a deep cut on the knuckle of his finger
DNA tests on all five blood drops and on three bloodstains found on the rear gate at the crime scene showed that all of this blood belonged to Simpson Two DNA tests were used (PCR and RFLP) PCR test is less precise that RFLP But can be conducted on smaller blood samples as well as samples that have degenerated because of bacteria and/or exposure to elements PCR tests were conducted on four out of the five blood drops
Three drops: Only 1 out of 240,000 people had DNA with the markers found in the sample Fourth drop: had markers which one out of 5200 people would have- Simpson was one of those people Fifth drop- RFLP test- one of out 170 million people would match these markers- again Simpson’s blood did Richest sample was the rear gate- RFLP test showed that only one out of 57 billion people had those markers- Simpson was one of these people Just from blood evidence- one out of 57 billion chance that Simpson is innocent Fifty seven billion is approximately ten times the current population of the entire world
Staying in a guest house on Simpson’s property His story contradicted Simpson’s version of events He rambled and was inconsistent in his testimony- less than ideal witness Said there was a thump outside of his wall
Detective Denied use of “n” word within the last ten years Had proof he had gone on racist rant on tape Refuses to answer questions- citing his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination Had he planted evidence or not?
