This episode takes a closer look at the final days of Whitney Houston who was found dead in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
The pop star was on the brink of a comeback and scheduled to perform at a Grammy Awards party that night. What were the circumstances that led to her misfortune?
This episode uncovers details of Houston's last days and her tumultuous relationship with Bobby Brown. In the Spring of , police had no idea a serial killer was on the loose.
This gripping hour explores how Dahmer carefully selected his victims and how he evaded police scrutiny for years.
The episode includes a chilling account by one of his victims who lived to tell his harrowing story. The nation was on edge as a string of bombings killed and injured innocent Americans.
How did the Unabomber choose his targets and elude capture for so long? Also featured is a new interview with his brother, the man who ultimately turned him in to authorities.
To many, Heath Ledger had it all --baby and burgeoning career, but this episode reveals things are not as they seem. Ledger finished filming his Oscar-worthy performance of his gritty portrayal of the Joker in the "The Dark Knight.
Did this dark role impact his real life and what was his connection to Mary-Kate Olsen? She was charged with racketeering and threatened to expose names on her client list.

The O. Simpson Case: Other Killer Theories. Simpson trial: Where are they now? Season 1: Episodes The Menendez Brothers: Murder in Beverly Hills A wealthy couple was found shot dead in their own home while watching TV and the nation was shocked when investigators later charged the couple's sons, Lyle and Erik, with their murder.
Judge Lance Ito presided over the trial in the C. Foltz Criminal Courts Building. District Attorney Gil Garcetti elected to file charges in downtown Los Angeles, as opposed to Santa Monica , in which jurisdiction the crimes took place.
The decision may have affected the trial's outcome because it resulted in a jury pool that was less educated, had lower incomes, and contained more African Americans.
Gabriel notes that African Americans, unlike other minorities, are far more likely to be receptive to the claim of racially motivated fraud by the police.
In October , Judge Lance Ito started interviewing prospective jurors, each of whom had to fill out a page questionnaire.
On November 3, twelve jurors were seated with twelve alternates. Over the course of the trial, ten were dismissed for a wide variety of reasons. Only four of the original jurors remained on the final panel.
According to media reports, Clark believed women, regardless of race, would sympathize with the domestic violence aspect of the case and connect with Nicole personally.
On the other hand, the defense's research suggested that black women would not be sympathetic to Nicole, who was white, because of tensions about interracial marriages.
Both sides accepted a disproportionate number of female jurors. From an original jury pool of 40 percent white, 28 percent black, 17 percent Hispanic, and 15 percent Asian, the final jury for the trial had ten women and two men, of whom nine were black, two white and one Hispanic.
It broke the previous record with more than a month left to go. On April 5, , juror Jeanette Harris was dismissed because Judge Ito learned she had failed to disclose an incident of domestic abuse.
Ito then met with the jurors, who all denied Harris's allegations of racial tension among themselves.
The following day, Ito dismissed the three deputies anyway, which upset the jurors that didn't complain because the dismissal appeared to lend credence to Harris's allegations, which they all denied.
Ito then ordered them to court and the 13 protesters responded by wearing all black and refusing to come out to the jury box upon arrival.
Clark was designated as the lead prosecutor and Darden became Clark's co-counsel. Prosecutors Hank Goldberg and William Hodgman, who have successfully prosecuted high-profile cases in the past, assisted Clark and Darden.
The prosecution argued that the domestic violence within the Simpson-Brown marriage culminated in her murder. Simpson's then girlfriend, Paula Barbieri, wanted to attend the recital with Simpson but he did not invite her.
After the recital, Simpson returned home to a voicemail from Barbieri ending their relationship. Simpson then drove over to Nicole Brown's home to reconcile their relationship as a result and when Nicole refused, Simpson killed her in a "final act of control.
The prosecution opened its case by calling LAPD dispatcher Sharon Gilbert and playing a four-minute call from Nicole Brown Simpson on January 1, , in which she expressed fear that Simpson would physically harm her and Simpson himself is even heard in the background yelling at her and possibly hitting her as well.
The officer who responded to that call, Detective John Edwards, testified next that when he arrived, a severely beaten Nicole Brown Simpson ran from the bushes where she was hiding and to the detective screaming "He's going to kill me, he's going to kill me," referring to O.
Pictures of Nicole Brown's face from that night were then shown to the jury to confirm his testimony. That incident led to Simpson's arrest and eventual pleading of no contest to one count of domestic violence for which he received probation for one year.
I really don't know about taking that thing. She tearfully testified to many episodes of domestic violence in the s, when she saw Simpson pick up his wife and hurl her against a wall, then physically throw her out of their house during an argument.
She also testified that Simpson was agitated with Nicole the night of his daughter's dance recital as well, the same night Nicole was murdered.
The prosecution planned to present 62 separate incidents of domestic violence, including three previously unknown incidents Brown had documented in several letters she had written and placed in a bank safety deposit box.
Judge Ito denied the defense's motion to suppress the incidents of domestic violence, but only allowed witnessed accounts to be presented to the jury because of Simpson's Sixth Amendment rights.
The letters Nicole Brown had written and the statements she made to friends and family were ruled inadmissible as hearsay because Brown was dead and unable to be cross-examined.
Despite this, the prosecution had witnesses for 44 separate incidents they planned to present to the jury. However, the prosecution dropped the domestic violence portion of their case on June 20, Christopher Darden later confirmed that to be true.
This dismissal of Simpson's abusive behavior from a female juror, who was also a victim of such abuse by her own husband, convinced the prosecution that the jury was not receptive to the domestic violence argument.
The defense retained renowned advocate for victims of domestic abuse, Dr. Lenore E. Walker was dropped from the witness list for "tactical reasons" after she submitted her report on the case.
The revelation of Simpson's abuse of Nicole is credited with turning public opinion against him. Walker was dropped from the defense witness list is credited with transforming public opinion on spousal abuse from a private familial matter to a serious public health issue.
Lakshmanan Sathyavagiswaran, testified on June 14, that Brown's time of death was estimated as between pm and pm.
Simpson was not seen again until pm when he answered the intercom at the front door for the limousine driver, Allan Park. Allan Park testified on March 28, that he arrived at Simpson's home at pm on the night of the murders and stopped at the Rockingham entrance: Simpson's Bronco was not there.
Park's testimony was significant because it explained the location of the glove found at Simpson's home. Park said the "shadowy figure" initially approached the front door before heading down the southern walkway which leads to where the glove was found by Fuhrman.
The prosecution believed that Simpson had driven his Bronco to and from Brown's home to commit the murders, saw that Park was there and aborted his attempt to enter through the front door and tried to enter through the back instead.
During cross examination, Park conceded that he could not identify the figure but said he saw that person enter the front door and afterwards Simpson answered and said he was home alone but he was calling a friend over.
Park conceded that he did not notice any cuts on Simpson's left hand but added "I shook his right hand, not his left. The prosecution presented a total of exhibits, including 61 drops of blood,  of DNA evidence allegedly linking Simpson to the murders.
With no witnesses to the crime, the prosecution was dependent on DNA as the only physical evidence linking Simpson to the crime.
Bodziak, testified that the bloody shoe prints found at the crime scene and inside Simpson's Bronco were made from a rare and expensive pair of Bruno Magli Italian shoes.
He determined the shoes were a size 12, the same size that Simpson wears, and are only sold at Bloomingdales. Only 29 pairs of that size were sold in the U.
Bodziak also testified that, despite two sets of footprints at the crime scene, only one attacker was present because they were all made by the same shoes.
During cross-examination Bailey suggested the murderer deliberately wore shoes that were the wrong size, which Bodziak dismissed as "ridiculous".
Simpson denied ever owning a pair of those "ugly ass shoes" and there was only circumstantial evidence he did. Although the prosecution could not prove that Simpson owned a pair of those shoes, Bodziak testified that a similar bloody shoe print was left on the floor inside Simpson's Bronco.
Scheck suggested that Fuhrman broke into the Bronco and left the footprint there; he produced a photo of Fuhrman walking through a puddle of blood.
Bodziak admitted that he was not able to confirm that the shoe print in the car definitely came from a Bruno Magli shoe, but dismissed Scheck's claim because none of the shoe prints at the crime scene were made by Fuhrman's shoes, making it unlikely he could have made a bloody shoe print in the Bronco.
Simpson hired a team of high-profile defense lawyers, initially led by Robert Shapiro , who was previously a civil lawyer known for settling, and then subsequently by Johnnie Cochran, who at that point was known for police brutality and civil rights cases.
Assisting Cochran were Carl E. Douglas and Shawn Holley. The defense team's reasonable doubt theory was summarized as "compromised, contaminated, corrupted" in opening statements.
Robert Huizenga testified on July 14,  that Simpson was not physically capable of carrying out the murders due to chronic arthritis and old football injuries.
During cross-examination, the prosecution produced an exercise video that Simpson made a few weeks before the murders titled O.
Simpson Minimum Maintenance: Fitness for Men , which demonstrated that Simpson was anything but frail. Huizenga admitted afterwards that Simpson could have committed the murders if he was in "the throes of an adrenaline rush.
Michael Baden , a forensic pathologist, testified on August 10,  and claimed the murders happened closer to pm, which is when Simpson has an alibi.
After the trial, Baden admitted his claim of Goldman's long struggle was inaccurate   and that testifying for Simpson was a mistake. Gerdes admitted  that Goldman's blood was in Simpson's Bronco  despite Goldman never having an opportunity within his lifetime to be in the Bronco.
Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld argued that the results from the DNA testing were not reliable because the police were "sloppy" in collecting and preserving it from the crime scene.
The prosecution denied that the mistakes made by Fung and Mazzola changed the validity of the results. The contamination claim was made by microbiologist Dr.
John Gerdes. It is chronic in the sense that it doesn't go away. During cross-examination, Dr. Gerdes admitted there was no evidence that cross-contamination had occurred and that he was only testifying to "what might have occurred and not what actually did occur".
He accepted that the victims' blood was in the Bronco and Simpson's blood was at the crime scene and neither was due to contamination.
He also conceded that nothing happened during "packaging and shipping" that would affect the validity of the results at the two consulting labs.
The prosecution implied that Gerdes was not a credible witness: he had no forensic experience and had only testified for criminal defendants in the past and always said the DNA evidence against them was not reliable due to contamination.
Clark also implied that it was not a coincidence that the three evidence items he initially said were valid were the same three the defense claimed were planted while the other 58 were all false positives and the 47 substrate controls, which are used to determine if contamination occurred, were all false negatives.
Henry Lee testified on August 24, and admitted that Gerdes's claim was "highly improbable". Barry Scheck's eight-day cross-examination of Dennis Fung was lauded in the media.
What contamination and degradation will lead you to is an inconclusive result. It doesn't lead you to a false positive.
The defense initially only claimed that three exhibits were planted by the police  but eventually argued that virtually all of the blood evidence against Simpson was planted in a police conspiracy.
In closing arguments, Cochran called Fuhrman and Vannatter "twins of deception"  and told the jury to remember Vannatter as "the man who carried the blood"  and Fuhrman as "the man who found the glove.
The only physical evidence offered by the defense that the police tried to frame Simpson was the allegation that two of the DNA evidence samples tested in the case contained the preservative Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid , or EDTA.
Ironically, it was the prosecution who asked to have the samples tested for the preservative, not the defense. In order to support the claim, the defense pointed to the presence of EDTA , a preservative found in the purple-topped collection tubes used for police reference vials, in the samples.
On July 24, , Dr. Fredric Rieders , a forensic toxicologist who had analysed results provided by FBI special agent Roger Martz, testified that the level of EDTA in the evidence samples was higher than that which is normally found in blood: this appeared to support the claim they came from the reference vials.
Rieders to read out loud the portion of the EPA article that stated what the normal levels of EDTA in blood are, which he referenced during his testimony.
Rieders then claimed it was a "typo"   but the prosecution produced a direct copy from the EPA disproving that claim.
Rieders the day before. When the defense accused their own witness of changing his demeanor to favor the prosecution, he replied "I cannot be entirely truthful by only giving 'yes' and 'no' answers".
Martz also tested his own unpreserved blood and got the same results for EDTA levels as the evidence samples, which he said conclusively disproved the claim the evidence blood came from the reference vials.
The defense alleged that Simpson's blood on the back gate at the Bundy crime scene was planted by the police. The blood on the back gate was collected on July 3, , rather than June 13, the day after the murders.
The volume of DNA was so high that the defense conceded that it could not be explained by contamination in the lab, yet noted that it was unusual for that blood to have more DNA on it than the other samples collected at the crime scene, especially since it had been left exposed to the elements for several weeks and after the crime scene had supposedly been washed over.
On March 20, Detective Vannatter testified that he instructed Fung to collect the blood on the gate on June 13 and Fung admitted he had not done so. The prosecution responded by showing that a different photograph showed that the blood was present on the back gate on June 13 and before the blood had been taken from Simpson's arm.
Barry Scheck alleged the police had twice planted the victims' blood inside Simpson's Bronco. An initial collection was made on June 13; the defense accused Vannatter of planting the victims' blood in the Bronco when he returned to Simpson's home later that evening.
The prosecution responded that the Bronco had already been impounded by the time Vannatter returned and was not even at Rockingham.
The defense alleged that the police had planted Brown's blood on the socks found in Simpson's bedroom. The socks were collected on June 13 and had blood from both Simpson and Brown, but her blood on the socks was not identified until August 4.
He had received both blood reference vials from the victims earlier that day from the coroner and booked them immediately into evidence.
Vannatter then drove back to Rockingham later that evening to hand deliver the reference vial for Simpson to Fung, which the defense alleged gave him opportunity to plant the blood.
Fung testified he could not see blood on the socks he collected from Simpson's bedroom  but the prosecution later demonstrated that those blood stains are only visible underneath a microscope.
Detective Vannatter denied planting Nicole Brown's blood on the socks. The video from Willie Ford indicated that the socks had already been collected and stored in the evidence van before Vannatter arrived and footage from the media cameras present appeared to prove that he never went inside the evidence van when he arrived at Rockingham.
The last exhibit allegedly planted was the bloody glove found at Simpson's property by Detective Mark Fuhrman. Robert Shapiro later admitted he was Toobin's source.
Defense attorney F. Lee Bailey suggested that Fuhrman found the glove at the crime scene, picked it up with a stick and placed it in a plastic bag, and then concealed it in his sock when he drove to Simpson's home with Detectives Lange, Vannatter and Philips.
Bailey suggested that he then planted the glove in order to frame Simpson, with the motive either being racism or a desire to become the hero in a high-profile case.
The prosecution denied that Fuhrman planted the glove. They noted that several officers had already combed over the crime scene for almost two hours before Fuhrman arrived and none had noticed a second glove at the scene.
Detective Lange testified that 14 other officers were there when Fuhrman arrived and all said there was only one glove at the crime scene.
Frank Spangler also testified that he was with Fuhrman for the duration of his time there and stated he would have seen Fuhrman purloin the glove if he had in fact done so.
Clark added that Fuhrman did not know whether Simpson had an alibi, if there were any witnesses to the murders, whose blood was on the glove, that the Bronco belonged to Simpson, or whether Kaelin had already searched the area where the glove was found.
During cross-examination by Bailey,  Fuhrman denied that he had used the word "nigger" to describe African Americans in the ten years prior to his testimony.
The tapes were made between and by screenwriter named Laura Hart McKinny, who had interviewed Fuhrman at length for a Hollywood screenplay she was writing on women police officers.
The Fuhrman tapes became the cornerstone of the defense's case that Fuhrman's testimony lacked credibility. Clark called the tapes "the biggest red herring there ever was.
After McKinny was forced to hand over the tapes to the defense, Fuhrman says he asked the prosecution for a redirect to explain the context of those tapes but the prosecution and his fellow police officers abandoned him after Ito played the audiotapes in open court for the public to hear.
Fuhrman says he instantly became a pariah. On September 6, , Fuhrman was called back to the witness stand by the defense, after the prosecution refused to redirect him, to answer more questions.
The jury was absent but the exchange was televised. Fuhrman, with his lawyer standing by his side and facing the possibility of being charged with Perjury , was instructed by his attorney to invoke the Fifth Amendment to avoid self-incrimination to two consecutive questions he was asked.
Defense attorney Uelmen asked Fuhrman if it was his intention to plead the Fifth to all questions, and Fuhrman's attorney instructed him to reply "yes".
Uelmen then briefly spoke with the other members of the defense and said he had just one more question: "Did you plant or manufacture any evidence in this case?
Cochran responded to Fuhrman's pleading the Fifth by accusing the other officers of being involved in a "cover-up" to protect Fuhrman and asked Judge Ito to suppress all of the evidence that Fuhrman found.
Ito denied the request, stating that pleading the fifth does not imply guilt and there was no evidence of fraud. Cochran then asked that the jury be allowed to hear Fuhrman taking the fifth and again Ito denied his request.
Ito also criticized the defense's theory of how Fuhrman allegedly planted the glove stating "it would strain logic to believe that".
On June 15, , Christopher Darden surprised Marcia Clark by asking Simpson to try on the gloves found at the crime scene and his home. The prosecution had earlier decided against asking Simpson to try them on because they had been soaked in blood from Simpson, Brown and Goldman,  and frozen and unfrozen several times.
Instead they presented a witness who testified that Nicole Brown had purchased a pair of those gloves in the same size in at Bloomingdales for Simpson along with a receipt and a photo during the trial of Simpson earlier wearing the same type of gloves.
The leather gloves appeared too tight for Simpson to put on easily, especially over the latex gloves he wore underneath. Clark claimed that Simpson was acting when he appeared to be struggling to put on the gloves, yet Cochran replied "I don't think he could act the size of his hands.
The prosecution stated they believed the gloves shrank from having been soaked in the blood of the victims. He stated "the gloves in the original condition would easily go onto the hand of someone of Mr.
Simpson's size. After the trial, Cochran revealed that Bailey had goaded Darden into asking Simpson to try on the gloves  and that Shapiro had told Simpson in advance how to give the appearance that they did not fit.
In closing arguments, Darden ridiculed the notion that police officers might have wanted to frame Simpson. Darden noted the police did not arrest Simpson for five days after the murders.
The prosecution told the jury in closing arguments that Fuhrman was a racist, but said that this should not detract from the factual evidence that showed Simpson's guilt.
Clark put emphasis on the physical evidence such as the DNA, the bronco and Simpson's lack of an alibi, while Darden referred to Simpson's relationship with Nicole as a "ticking time bomb" and spoke about how the police had refused to arrest Simpson until Nicole's death despite his physical abuse, stalking and death threats, and Nicole filling a safety deposit box with a will and photographs of previous beatings in case Simpson murdered her.
Cochran compared Fuhrman to Adolf Hitler and referred to him as "a genocidal racist, a perjurer, America's worst nightmare and the personification of evil", and claimed without proof that Fuhrman had single-handedly planted all of the evidence, including the gloves, in an attempt to frame Simpson for the murders based purely on his dislike of interracial couples.
Fears grew that race riots, similar to the riots in , would erupt across Los Angeles and the rest of the country if Simpson were convicted of the murders.
As a result, all Los Angeles police officers were put on hour shifts. Simpson trial , criminal trial of former college and professional gridiron football star O.
Simpson , who was acquitted in of the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. It was one of the most notorious criminal trials in American history.
Rather than surrender to police after being notified of impending charges, on June 17 Simpson hid in the back of a sport-utility vehicle driven by his friend A.
After being told that Simpson had a gun to his own head, law-enforcement officers followed the vehicle at low speeds for more than an hour. Simpson was formally arraigned on July 22, , entering a plea of not guilty.
The trial began on January 24, , with Lance Ito as the presiding judge. Im Prozess gegen Simpson versuchten dessen Anwälte auf mögliche andere Täterkreise zu verweisen, was jedoch von Richter Ito mit Hinweis auf die Implausibilität dieser Theorie abgelehnt wurde.
Im Schlussplädoyer durften Simpsons Anwälte gegenüber die Jury zwar argumentieren, dass ein anderer Täter verantwortlich sein könnte, jedoch durfte kein bestimmter Täterkreis genannt werden, aus dem ein alternativer Täter hätte stammen können.
Die Verteidigung behauptete, dass das brutale Vorgehen des oder der Täter gegen Brown auch mit der Vorgehensweise professioneller Auftragsmörder aus dem Drogenmilieu übereinstimmen könne.
Faye Resnick , eine Freundin des Opfers, habe Kokain konsumiert und Schulden bei einem kolumbianischen Drogendealer gehabt. In den Medien wurde über eine mögliche Täterschaft eines sadistisch motivierten Serienkillers spekuliert.
Rogers hatte vor dem Mord über einen kurzen Zeitraum Malerarbeiten an Simpsons Haus durchgeführt und gibt an, auch seine Ex-Frau gekannt zu haben.
Die Goldman-Familie bezeichnete diese Theorie als unverantwortlich. Nichts deute auf einen anderen Täter als Simpson hin.
Der Privatdetektiv William C. Simpson sei demnach am Tatort gewesen, um seinen Sohn vom Mord abzuhalten, ihm nach dem Mord beim Verlassen des Tatorts zu helfen oder sogar absichtlich Beweise zu hinterlassen, die auf ihn selbst hindeuten, um seinen Sohn vor Strafverfolgung zu schützen.
Jason sei psychisch gestört und habe häufige Wutanfälle gehabt. Zwei seiner Freundinnen berichteten von tätlichen Übergriffen und teils lebensbedrohlicher häuslicher Gewalt, die sie in ihren Beziehungen mit Jason Simpson erfahren hätten.
Dies habe Jason so zornig gemacht, dass er zu Browns Haus gefahren sei und sie ermordet habe. Jason Simpson wurde als möglicher Tatverdächtiger schnell aussortiert, da er zur Tatzeit an seinem Arbeitsplatz gewesen sei.
Dear behauptete, Jason habe seine Stempelkarte manipuliert und das Restaurant bereits früh verlassen. Oktober wurde Simpson von der zwölfköpfigen Jury vom Mordvorwurf murder of the first degree in beiden Fällen freigesprochen und umgehend aus der Haft entlassen.
Auch eine Verurteilung wegen eines minderschweren Tötungsdeliktes murder of the second degree verneinte die Jury.
Die Staatsanwaltschaft hat keine Berufungsmöglichkeit. Die Urteilsverkündung im Fall Simpson wurde auf allen führenden amerikanischen TV-Kanälen live übertragen und wurde mit Millionen TV-Zuschauern zu einem der bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt meistgesehenen Ereignisse in der Geschichte des amerikanischen Fernsehens.
Er gab an, er freue sich, dass der "Albtraum", der mit der Ermordung seiner Ehefrau begonnen habe, endlich zu Ende sei und kündigte an, alle ihm möglichen Anstrengungen zu unternehmen, um den oder die wahren Täter zu finden.
Im übrigen wolle er sich um die Erziehung seiner beiden aus der Ehe mit Brown stammenden Kinder kümmern. Er habe lange Zeit vor bestimmten Dingen die Augen verschlossen.
Shapiro habe versucht, Simpson zu einem Schuldbekenntnis und einer Übereinkunft mit der Staatsanwaltschaft über eine geringere Haftstrafe zu überreden.
Es sei erwiesen, dass die Ermittler schwere Fehler gemacht, gelogen und Beweise manipuliert hätten. Durch den Freispruch sei im rechtlichen Sinn Gerechtigkeit hergestellt worden.
Den Tränen nahe fügte sie hinzu, sie wisse nicht, wie sie sich jemals bei den Opferfamilien entschuldigen könne.
Auch Jahre später gab er noch an, er sei der Meinung, Simpson sei unschuldig. Man habe Simpson die Tat anhängen wollen.
Er glaube von ganzem Herzen an dessen Unschuld. Simpson versuchte, im Jahr ein Buch zu veröffentlichen, in dem der hypothetische Tatablauf aus Sicht des Täters geschildert werden sollte, wobei er jedoch weiterhin seine Unschuld beteuerte.
Die Angaben passten teilweise zu den Ermittlungsergebnissen der Staatsanwaltschaft, wichen jedoch in Teilen auch erheblich davon ab. Beispielsweise gab Simpson an, der hypothetische Täter habe einen Komplizen namens "Charlie" gehabt.
In den Medien wurde kontrovers diskutiert, ob die von Simpson als hypothetisch bezeichneten Ausführungen in seinem Buch und dem Interview als Geständnis gewertet werden können.
Im Jahr nach dem Freispruch strengten die Opferfamilien eine Zivilklage gegen Simpson an, um ihn für die beiden Morde auf Schadenersatz zu verklagen.
In einem Zivilprozess ist es deutlich einfacher, eine Verurteilung zu erreichen. Die Entscheidung der Jury muss nicht einstimmig fallen.
Eine Aussage des Angeklagten kann anders als im Mordprozess erzwungen werden, was Simpson Beobachtern zufolge schadete. Strafen und Sanktionen gegen die Täter fielen oft milde aus.
Gesetze gegen Gewalt in der Partnerschaft wurden verschärft und Hilfsangebote für Opfer häuslicher Gewalt deutlich ausgebaut.
Etwa ein Jahr nach dem Freispruch wurde bekannt, dass Simpson sich kurz nach der Mordnacht einem Lügendetektortest unterzogen und diesen nicht bestanden hatte.
Lee Bailey abgebrochen. Simpson selbst gab an, sehr emotional auf die Fragen reagiert und daher den Test nicht bestanden zu haben.
Im Gerichtsverfahren spielte der Test keine Rolle. Bereits im Jahr hatte Mark Fuhrman die Freistellung vom Polizeidienst und eine stressbedingte Frührente beantragt.
Der Antrag wurde abgelehnt und Fuhrman dazu aufgefordert, seinen Dienst wieder aufzunehmen. Simpson drohte vor seiner Festnahme mindestens zweimal damit, sich selbst umzubringen.
Wenige Tage später, während seiner Flucht im Ford Bronco seines Freundes Al Cowlings, sprach er über sein Mobiltelefon wieder mit Kardashian und gab an, er halte eine Pistole an seinen Kopf und habe bereits abgedrückt, jedoch habe der Abzug nicht funktioniert.
Prozessbeobachter bezeichneten den Inhalt des Schreibens als hochgradig belastend. Simpson schreibe zwar, er habe nichts mit dem Mord an seiner Frau zu tun, machte jedoch keine Anstalten, den wahren Täter zu finden oder seine Unschuld zu beweisen.
Simpson lehnte es in den letzten Prozesswochen ab, sich selbst einer Zeugenvernehmung durch die Anklage zu stellen.
Als Grund gab er an, er wolle den Prozess insbesondere im Interesse der Jury und seiner Kinder nicht weiter verlängern.
Prozessbeobachter vermuteten hinter dieser auffälligen Häufung eine bewusste Strategie, um den Argumentationsfluss der Staatsanwaltschaft bei deren letzter Möglichkeit des Vortrags vor der Jury zu stören.
Nach dem Freispruch erhielt Simpson das alleinige Sorgerecht für die beiden gemeinsamen Kinder aus der Ehe mit Nicole Brown zugesprochen, obwohl ein Zivilprozess auf Schadenersatz für die Opferfamilien noch anhängig war.
Das Sorgerechtsurteil hatte auch nach seiner Verurteilung im Zivilprozess weiter Bestand. Mehrere der an dem Prozess beteiligten Anwälte schlossen nach dem Prozess teils sehr hoch dotierte Buchverträge ab.
Jahrestages des Freispruchs gab er an, der Prozess gegen Simpson habe sein Leben ruiniert. Nigg hatte wie Ronald Goldman im Restaurant Mezzaluna gearbeitet und war mit diesem befreundet.
Eine Verbindung zum Mord an Goldman wurde jedoch nie hergestellt. Der Mordfall ist bis heute ungelöst.

Fuhrman kam daher zu diesem Zeitpunkt in der Strategie der Anklage Slot Machine Game Download zentrale Rolle zu. Bestehen lediglich mögliche Zweifel englisch possible doubtdie bei Betrachtung durch eine vernunftbegabte Person nicht als wesentlich angesehen würden, ist der Angeklagte trotzdem schuldig zu sprechen, da sonst jede auch noch so überzeugende Beweislage durch schwache Indizien oder theoretische Einwände in Zweifel gezogen werden könnte.
