It’s been 22 years since the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and now, there may be brand new evidence in the case all thanks to a construction worker who found a knife buried on O.J. Simpson’s former estate.

TMZ first broke the story; a construction worker found a folding buck knife “years ago” during what appears to be the demolishment of Simpson’s Rokingham estate. Apparently, the worker took the knife to an off duty cop who was across the street at the time, but instead of turning the possible piece of evidence in, the traffic division officer kept it.

However, everything came to light just over a month ago when the newly retired officer contacted a friend who worked in LAPD’s Robbery Homicide Division (RHD) and told him about the knife. The former officer explained he wanted to frame the weapon and that he wanted the case number for the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

Instead of assisting the retiree, the friend took the story to his superiors, whom insisted the former officer turn the knife in.

Investigators are treating the case very delicately and is keeping it top secret. A source tells TMZ that it’s possible the knife did have blood residue on it, but it’s extremely rusted and stained.  The blade is now being tested for hair and fingerprints and will be tested for DNA and other biological evidence later this week.

If the possible weapon does point back to Simpson, who was acquitted of his ex-wife’s murder in 1995, he most likely will not be prosecuted because of double-jeopardy laws.

    This is the dumbest story ever. The off-duty cop just happened to be across the street, then instead of turning it in, he chose to put it in some shrine in his house for over 20 years. Now he wants to frame it, and needed the case number. It must be a slow news day. No wonder no one else is reporting this foolishness

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
