A controversial 2006 interview with O.J. Simpson aired on Sunday night on FOX, and apparently, his hypothetical version of how his ex-wife was killed appeared to a panel of experts that the former NFL superstar confessed to murder while hiding behind the guise of of a theoretical explanation.
“There was blood all over,” Simpson told author Judith Regan in the FOX show, O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession. “As things got heated, I just remember Nicole fell and hurt herself. This guy got into a karate thing and I said, ‘Well, you think you can kick my ass?'”
“I remember I grabbed the knife — I do remember that portion, taking the knife from Charlie,” Simpson continued. “And to be honest, after that, I don’t remember, except I’m standing there and there’s all kinds of stuff around. Blood and stuff.”

Christopher Darden, the former Los Angeles prosecutor who tried to convict Simpson during his 1994 murder trial against his wife, Nicole Brown, and her friend, Ron Goldman, was an analyst on the FOX special, along with author, Judith Regan, retired FBI Supervisory Special Agent Jim Clemente, family friend of the Brown family, Eve Shakti Chen, and senior advisor to the NFL on domestic violence, Rita Smith.
Darden, who had an up-close and personal view of the evidence against Simpson during the murder trial, indicated that the former NFL player essentially confessed to the murder with his hypothetical version of what happened.
“I think he’s confessed to murder,” Darden said.
This "hypothetical" description of Nicole Simpson's murder by OJ Simpson is one of the most bizarre and disturbing things I have ever heard #DidOJConfess @soledadobrien …also OJ is smirking as he talks about her "hypothetical" murder

Another notable highlight of the special included Simpson’s reference to the aforementioned “Charlie,” who several of the analysts said was a figment of Simpson’s imagination, an alter ego.
Simpson claimed Charlie brought the knife to Brown’s Calabassas home for “self-defense” reasons on the day she was killed. They both showed up to the home in the infamous white Bronco in Simpson’s supposed imagined version of events, and Charlie was apparently the person who warned Simpson that his wife was spending time with another man.
#OJSimpson just confessed to murder. He stopped saying this scenario was hypothetical and started speaking about the murders in first person. This monster admitted killing his ex-wife in 2006 and the interview was buried. #DidOJConfess pic.twitter.com/Gmbcd6tmMb

Further, Simpson, who initially claimed he didn’t remember Brown’s funeral, relived how he felt after he leaned down and kissed his former wife as she was being carried away in a casket. Simpson said he was still angry at her, even after her death, and while leaning over her lifeless body, said, “Didn’t I tell you!”
“He had lost control, and did what he always said what he would do,” Darden added. “He killed her. Now he has no control.”
