Overview

Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman were brutally murdered at Nicole’s home on Bundy Drive in Brentwood, California, on the night of June 12, 1994. The weeks and months that followed were full of spectacle, including a much-watched car chase and the eventual arrest of O. J. Simpson for the murders. The televised trial that followed was unlike any that the nation had ever seen. Long convinced of O. J.’s guilt, the world was shocked when the jury of the “trial of the century” read the verdict of not guilty. To this day, the LAPD, Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, mainstream media, and much of the world at large remain firmly convinced that O. J. Simpson literally got away with murder. According to private investigator William Dear, it is precisely this assuredness that has led both the police and public to overlook a far more likely suspect. Dear now compiles more than sixteen years of investigation by his team of forensic experts and presents evidence that O. J. was not the killer. In O. J. is Innocent and I Can Prove It, Dear makes the controversial but compelling case that it was, in fact, the “overlooked suspect,” O. J.’s eldest son Jason, who committed the grisly murders. Sure to stir the pot and raise some eyebrows, this book is a must-read.

Editorial Reviews

USA Today
“A new book has a very new twist on the O.J. Simpson and the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Rob Goldman.”
Daily Mail
“OJ Simpson was the prime suspect for the murders because he helped cover up his son's crimes and, in effect, allowed himself to take the fall, the book claims.”
Hollywood.com
“But the celebrity detective ups the ante on controversial theories in his new book: O. J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It.”
Huffington Post
While the book's bombshell claims have not been proved — authorities in California have yet to comment on them — Dear insisted he can back up every allegation.”— Huffington Post
The Village Voice
“We spent about 40 minutes speaking with Dear yesterday, and while he didn't convince us that O.J.'s innocent, his arguments aren't too far beyond the realm of possibility.”
Dan Rather

Bill has turned up some new, very interesting and troubling information about this case. . . . It is information that deserves to be put before the public; it deserves careful consideration.

Huffington Post - Huffington Post
“While the book's bombshell claims have not been proved — authorities in California have yet to comment on them — Dear insisted he can back up every allegation.”
John Valeri
“O.J. is Innocent and I can Prove It provides a wealth of additional details and background information that help to establish potential motive, means and opportunity – all of which is supported by medical reports, personal interviews, deposition transcripts and physical evidence. O.J. is Innocent and I Can Prove It, then, is an important book for several reasons. First, it dares to raise questions that will not sit well with those whose only interest is in upholding the status quo, regardless of whether or not justice was served. (What if O.J. Simpson was at the crime scene – but only after the murders occurred?) Second, it publicly calls out the authoritative bodies that have seen the evidence but continue to ignore it. And third, and perhaps most importantly, it challenges readers to open their minds and entertain the notion of, what if? If we dismiss this book without giving it the consideration it warrants, then we are every bit as guilty of the kind of rush to judgment that its author rails against.”

Kirkus Reviews
A piece of true-crime investigative work focuses on the supposedly true killer of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. From the time of the bloody and brutal murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman on June 12, 1994, until he finished writing this book, private investigator and author Dear (O.J. Is Guilty But Not of Murder, 2000, etc.) searched for the truth about what really happened to the two victims on that warm summer night in Los Angeles. The immediate and overwhelming opinion voiced by media, law enforcement and the public in general was clear--O.J. was guilty and there were no other suspects. As a PI, Dear disapproved of the rush to judgment amid a media circus. He probed the case, starting with a comprehensive list of possible perpetrators. One by one he eliminated them until he was left with, in his view, a viable and logical suspect. Here he makes the case that O.J.'s eldest son, Jason Simpson, was the murderer. Like a textbook for investigators, the book exhaustively uncovers, documents and extrapolates information and evidence to support his conclusions. He raises questions that were never asked, including why O.J. Simpson retained a criminal defense attorney for Jason the day after the murders. He cites the peculiar behavior by Simpson after the murders and the inept investigation by the LAPD. Yet Dear doesn't argue that O.J. was never involved. Using everything from high-tech gadgets to the most basic gumshoe techniques, along with the patience of Job, Dear pursued evidence to support his view that Jason Simpson was the killer. He believes LAPD should conduct a new investigation. Armed with his own team of highly regarded investigators and forensic experts and a "just the facts, ma'am" approach, Dear makes a compelling case. A cogent, well-documented new take on a controversial verdict.

    I couldn't put this book down. I would like to recommend it for anyone that followed this trial. Mr. Dear made me a believer that there was misconduct by the Prosecutors and the Police that led to a miscarriage of justice-i.e. the real killer is still free.

    interesting read!

    I watched the OJ trial years ago, and always had questions. The author of this book had similar concerns and addressed them. My take is that the author did his research on his own dime, which i respect. The book was very informative and painted a very different picture than the one presented in the criminal and civil trials. It was a bit redundant at times, but overall a very good and interesting read.

    Very interesting and believeable! This type of obvious rush to judgement to convict someone could occur in cases across the country and should probably be studied by those in law enforcement.

    Highly recommend!

    I was never completely comfortable with the idea of O.J.'s having murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. There were too many loose ends that remained unexplained. This book, a remarkably well researched delve into the evidence has a solution that neatly ties up those loose ends and presents us with a quite plausible scenario and a hitherto ignored suspect. It made a believer out of me, and now I am disappointed that California authorities are failing to act on this information to seek justice for the victims. I've read this book twice and given a copy as a gift.
