Sunday evening marked the highly-anticipated broadcast of “O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?,” an interview dated back to 2006 in which O.J. Simpson details a hypothetical account of how his involvement in the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman would have played out. The interview conducted by Judith Regan was a verbalized account of the scenario laid out in Simpson’s book If I Did It.
While heralded as hypothetical, it was Simpson’s frequent use of the first-person, vivid details of the crime scene, and implication of a hypothetical accomplice named Charlie that had many referring to this interview as a blatant confession. While many took to social media to relay this sentiment, other met it with explanations and conspiracy theories of their own, supporting the not guilty verdict handed down in 1994 when O.J. was infamously acquitted of the murders.
Other disturbing admissions included O.J.’s revelation that he often visited Nicole Brown’s grave to yell at it due to an anger he still felt toward his ex-wife, pinning her and Ron Goldman’s deaths as the elements that, in turn, ruined his own life.
“I loved her, but I wasn’t in love her. To some degree, I didn’t really like her,” Simpson admitted. “To some degree, I thought she was losing herself in many ways. Ron and Nicole were physically dead, and it’s almost like they killed me. Who I was was attacked and murdered also in that short period of time. To this day, it bugs me it seems people wanted me to be guilty—that really, really bothered me.”

possible that OJ has split personalities? the way he’s talking about this charlie guy seems like he wasn’t in control of himself. He also blacks out several times. possible brain injury from football? then again it could be a ploy. #DidOJConfess

OJ Simpson is hypothetically confessing to murder, but it sounds as if he is actually confessing to murder.
Yes, this is a confession to murder. #DidOJConfess
