The only thing I remember about this case was a high speed chase of OJ Simpson with the police being on the news, I didn't give it much more thought, I was young & true crime/news wasn't really on my radar. Of course you learn of the murder of his ex wife and ?her partner or male friend - how it was overwhelming that he was guilty but he got found not guilty. I only knew him from the Naked Gun movies.
I seen someone talking bout this book on a book club and decided to check it out. Simpson apparently wrote a book, If I Did It where he wrote how he would have done that murders IF he did it. The Goldman family sued him and won X amount of money, amount increasing each year he didn't pay then they heard about the book he was writing The Goldmans moved to action.
The start of the book we hear from his, Ron Goldman, family about what they experienced and why they intercepted his book which after they read felt it was a confession. About a quarter in we then read his own words "If I Did It" however this book I have is called I DID IT, the family made it very clear how they feel and after reading his words it is interesting to hear what others think.
In Simpsons words he goes over his life, relationship before he met Nicole Brown, how they met, their life and time together and what lead up to that night and the immediate before and after. Whilst he doesn't document him doing XYZ injuries there is absolutely no doubt of what has happened.
The Goldman family got a lot of grief apparently for taking this on and doing this book, please read their words as it is very understandable why they did what they did. It is a shame they had hate and threats after losing their son in such a horrific way, 4/5 for me.
