Ahead of a much-hyped Fox special Sunday night revealing the unreleased footage of a 2006 interview with O.J. Simpson, several passages have leaked regarding what its title indirectly alludes to as a possible confession to the 1994 murders of his ex-wife and her friend.
“OJ: The Lost Confession?” will include one segment related to the fact that the two children he and Nicole Brown Simpson had together were inside of the residence on the night of their mother’s murder.
According to an exclusive report by the Daily Mail, Simpson “immediately starts laughing” when interviewer and publisher Judith Regan clarifies that the children, 5-year-old Justin and 8-year-old Sydney, were in fact at home.
“Now we got to stop,” he said. “Now we got to stop. It’s hard enough for me without bringing my kids into this.”
Following a pause, Simpson reportedly laughed again and apologized for the interruption.
“I’m sorry, I tend to keep my kids out of everything as you may notice,” he said.
The upcoming special has been billed as all but an outright confession by the former NFL star found not guilty in court but publicly disgraced for his perceived role in the double murder.
During the interview, he reportedly offered a hypothetical scenario involving himself and someone named Charlie.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Regan, the publisher of the controversial unpublished book “If I Did It,” said she was contacted by an attorney who described Simpson’s involvement as a willingness to confess to the crimes.
