Ron Shipp, Friend of O.J. Simpson Says He Thinks He May Confess to Murders of Nicole Brown Simpson & Ron Goldman
WILL O.J. SIMPSON EVER CONFESS TO THE MURDERS OF NICOLE BROWN SIMPSON AND RON GOLDMAN?
Ron Shipp, former Los Angeles police officer and part-time actor who has been a friend of O.J. Simpson for years thinks he might be ready to confess to killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ron Goldman. Simpson was found not guilty in the 1994 double murder trial of the century that may have been the greatest case of jury nullification ever. Simpson could not stay out of trouble and is now serving a 9 to 33 year sentence in Nevada on an armed-robbery conviction. However in an interview, Ron Shipp says he would probably not come clean until he is out of prison. Simpson is eligible for parole when he turns 70 in 2017.
Sorry, I am not buying the fact that Simpson will ever confess to the crimes he committed even though double jeopardy prevents him from ever being tried again. Like in the case of Joran Van der Sloot and the death of Natalee Holloway in Aruba, sociopaths and narcissists enjoy the attention and causing pain to others. Simpson, like Van der Sloot, will never provide the truth to the Goldman’s, Holloway’s or Twitty’s.
After more than 20 years, countless stories, a popular TV miniseries, countless bizarro theories and, now, a lengthy documentary, the truth about who murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman remains elusive.
Although O.J. Simpson, the former NFL player, was found not guilty by a jury in the trial of the century, a civil jury ordered him to pay $33.5 million in punitive and compensatory damages in finding him liable for the 1994 double murders. Now, a former Los Angeles police officer and part-time actor who has been a friend of The Juice for years thinks he might be ready to confess to killing his ex-wife and Goldman.
“The guy is in total torment today,” Ron Shipp told The New York Daily News at the Los Angeles premiere of ESPN’s “O.J. Simpson: Made in America” documentary, which begins June 11. “Someone told me he is 300 pounds and he looks horrible. O.J. has always felt his appearance meant everything and now, deep down inside, he is starting to live with himself.”
