Background On a hot August 4, at 92 Second Street in Fall River, Massachusetts, Bridget "Maggie" Sullivan, the maid in the Borden family residence rested in her bed after having washed the outside windows.
Before reading this, I was more than skeptical, but I have to say, with all seriousness, that I am convinced that O.

This may seem silly to say because, after all, a jury of twelve peers came to the decision that he was not guilty.
And yet, if you ask anyone today, most people would say that O. The problem, according to Dear, is that the LAPD, the Defense, and the Prosecution made egregious errors and "tunnel vision" assumptions from the beginning, starting with the infamous Bronco car chase, that enabled the much more obvious suspect to be completely overlooked.
Dear, a private detective and founder of a Dallas-based private investigations agency, has been working, and solving, homicide cases for nearly fifty years.
Experts in nearly every field of Law Enforcement often come to him for advice. He is meticulous in his collection and analysis of evidence, and he is scrupulous when it comes to doing anything within the letter of the Law, as imperfect as it is. So, it came as a shock to him, laying in a hospital bed after minor surgery watching the slow car chase on TV, to witness how badly-handled that situation was.
He followed the O.
Simpson case obsessively, but, like most, believed that he was probably guilty. The evidence, after all, seemed pretty straightforward. After some personal investigation, Dear discovered that the evidence was anything but.
There were, he discovered, many more unanswered questions than answered ones, and it did not appear that anyone within the LAPD wanted to address them.
So, taking it upon himself no one actually hired him, he simply decided to investigate on his ownDear went looking for something that no one within the LAPD, the courts, and the media had found yet: Consider some of these points: Why would he do this, considering the police had barely considered O.
Dear discovered witnesses who claimed that they witnessed Jason leave at around 9: More importantly, he discovered the missing time clock punch card. He had been in and out of psychiatric wards since the age of 12, starting when his baby sister fell into a pool and drowned, an accident for which he blamed himself.
He was taking an epileptic drug called Depakote, but he often suffered from seizures. Alcohol and most drugs are known to have very serious reactions when taken with Depakote. It is a rare condition in which a person simply snaps and becomes extremely violent.
He had several altercations with girlfriends in which the police were involved.
These are just a few of the many pieces of new evidence that will make one wonder how the police completely missed them, assuming they actually did. If you like true-crime, especially ones involving such high-profile murders, this book may interest you.
Dear writes with the thoroughness of a police report and yet still manages to create the taut suspense of a mystery thriller.examining, photographing, taking a swab or sample or cast or impression or measurement of part of the body other than the genitals, buttocks, .
Mar 21, · O.J was found not guilty, and yet, the LAPD considers the case closed. Well, it's just common sense, if no one has been convicted of this double homicide, the investigation should remain open. I was growing more and more frustrated as one roadblock after /5(50).

Lizzie Andrew Borden (July 19, – June 1, ) was an American woman who was tried and acquitted in the axe murders of her father and stepmother (Andrew Jackson Borden and Abby Durfee Gray Borden, Andrew's second wife) in Fall River, Massachusetts.
The case was a cause célèbre throughout the United States.
He spent much of his argument focusing on O.J.'s state of mind during the murders, as if Darden could read O.J.'s mind and as if O.J.'s state of mind was much more important than the DNA evidence that established O.J.'s guilt to a scientific certainty.
After Simpson's doctor, Robert Huizenga, testified that O. Jdespite looking like Tarzan--was in about as good of a condition as "Tarzan's grandfather" and suffered from arthritis and other problems, the prosecution produced a video taken shortly before the murders.
