Is OJ finally ready to confess?
The infamous trial of OJ Simpson received a huge jolt recently thanks to the FX show, "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story." In addition to the hit tv show, a 5-part documentary titled, "O.J.: Made in America" will premiere next Saturday, June 11th, on ABC.
At the Los Angeles premiere of that 30-for-30 doc, the New York Daily News caught up with a former friend of OJ (and former police officer), Ron Shipp, who said he believes The Juice is finally ready to confess to the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
"The guy is in total torment today," Shipp said. "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."
"I hope one day he actually will rid us of all the doubt and all the conspiracy theories and say 'sorry I cannot go to prison (because of double jeopardy laws), but I am sorry I did it," says Shipp, who believes that will happen.
"I do," he said. "I got a call about a conspiracy theory about Jason (Simpson's son) being the killer and I thought, man, come on Juice, just say 'my son didn't do it.'"
As we all know, Simpson was not charged with the murders but he is currently serving a sentence on an armed robbery conviction. The Juice could be released as early as next year, which is when Shipp believes he'll make a confession.
