'Hypothetical' confession from O.J Simpson will give you real chills

O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession? shared a 2006 interview between O.J. Simpson and his publisher Judith Regan. In the interview, Simpson detailed how he and an unknown accomplice named Charlie hypothetically murdered Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman in 1994.

Simpson had written a book titled "If I Did It," and this interview was part of that book deal. So the entire interview was under a hypothetical pretense. The only problem was it didn't seem very hypothetical.

Through most of the confession it seemed like Simpson was recounting something that he genuinely remembers taking part in. Though he does obfuscate a little with the help of an accomplice named Charlie.

Simpson said, "I think Charlie had followed [Goldman] in, and he brought the knife. As things got heated, I just remember Nicole fell and hurt herself, and [Goldman] kind of got into a karate thing, and I said well, do you think you can kick my ass? And I remember I grabbed the knife, I do remember that portion, taking the knife from Charlie. And to be honest, after that I don't remember what happened after that except that I'm standing there and there's all kind of stuff around."

Christopher Darden, who was one of the prosecutors in the case, watched the interview with sadness and anger. Darden said, " "I think he's confessed to murder… I don't think that there is any question of his involvement in that he is the person who is wielding the knife. He may try to describe it as a hypothetical but of course, it becomes 'I.' 'I did this,.' 'I felt this.' 'I saw this.' This notion of Charlie? I think Charlie is O.J. This is no hypothetical. This is reality."
