O.J. is Innocent and I can Prove it...Author William Dear alleges at Book Soup signing! Marcia Clark profited from murders!
Author William Dear
Obviously, the OJ SIMPSON murder mystery is not going away (not quietly into the night at least)!
The frenzied response to a recently-released book by long-time Private Investigator William C. Dear - who worked on the case - is a testament to that fact.
Now that the book is garnering a lot of high-profile mediaattention, Dear is hopeful that the case will be reopened.
According to one guest in attendance at a a book-signing event last night at Book Soup in West Hollywood, Dear's latest entry into the publishing world triggers a sort-of second-think about the spotty murder investigation - and ultimately - throws serious doubts on the findings of the LAPD and those dredged up in court in the aftermath.
Although there are dozens of books on the shelf with a myriad of theories about the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and her male friend Ron Goldman, Dear's supporters are touting his investigative twist on the tragedy for one very sound reason.
"For the most part, all the authors who have turned-out their takes on the crime of the century, have simply regurgitated the same old facts," one Dear enthusiast summed up.
Subsequently, hard-nosed critics of the LAPD (and the judiciary) have applauded Dear for a read that - not only appears to open new doors to evidence previously overlooked - but also raises serious questions about the investigation, the way it was handled, and other burning questions (why?).
"The lawyers were paid a lot of money to find OJ SIMPSON guilty," Dear argued last night, as the rapt attendees listened all-ears.
According to Dear, the LAPD ignored blatant clues he rustled up (by way of tried-and-true investigative techniques) that ultimately pointed an accusing finger at another suspect - none other than OJ Simpson's son - Jason.
In fact, Dear's handlers uncovered evidence right from the get-go, that caused even the most stalwart of individuals to sit up and take notice once it was brought to their attention.
For example, a wool "cap" similar to the one mentioned at trial, was found in a storage space that was rented by Jason Simpson during the course of the initial police probe, alongside a set of diaries which included incriminating references to the events tucked inside.
In addition, Dear later determined that an alibi Jason offered up to investigators (in the form of a time card at a restaurant he worked at the night the murders were committed) had been tampered with.
When all of the evidence Dear collected was presented in a well-received award-winning documentary on the OJ Simpson case, it was so compelling, that even those with a definite mind set (OJ is guilty!) were forced to admit the it was difficult to look the other way.
I attended the screening, and concluded wholeheartedly at the time, that Dear's intriguing "jig-saw puzzle" - when pieced together methodically and painstakingly - made a lot of sense.
Based on the theories presented in the doc, I came up with a conclusion-or-two of my own, as well.
The post on the doc - "OJ is Guilty But Not of Murder" - is located at the link below:
Now that the evidence and Dear's perspective on the case have been published in book form, it is wholly conceivable that the public will demand that the investigation be reopened and so that Justice may at-long-last be served.
"I have been pushing for a Grand Jury trial for fifteen years," the articulate gent noted with obvious frustration.
And, Dear has paid dearly (no pun intended) for his efforts.
For instance, he is convinced that the LAPD is out to get him for exposing their shortcomings (and corruption) during the exhaustive investigation.
"If they knew I was here tonight, they would run me out of town," he half-joked.
And, over the course of the slippery long-and-winding road, he proved he was no shrinking violet, either.
The veteran investigator acknowledged that he was always keen on having a one-on-one with Marcia Clark to discuss the controversies which reared their head since the early commencement of the case.
"But, she wouldn't give me the time of day," he lamented in so many words.
At this point, Dear was inclined to to satiate the hunger of die-hard murder-mystery sleuths present by dropping a juicy bombshell or two.
"I know things about Marcia Clark. That's why she wouldn't agree to a discussion in an open public forum."
After a slight murmur rippled through the room, Dear was also inferred that Clark's intentions were not all that pure either, in the final analysis.
"Marcia Clark made about 3.5 million dollars on this case," he asserted without batting an eyelash and a twinkle in his eye.
Dear was also saddened by the fact that he was unable to probe Chris Darden (who he alleges scoffed up $750,000.00 at his end of the bench) on the issues, as well.
"Darden passed away before I was able to set it up," he admitted woefully.
Even still, Dear is optimistic the truth will come to light eventually.
Stay posted for updates, eh?
By the way, if readers are interested in snapping up the book, Dear encourages folks to purchase the fascinating read at "Book Soup" on Sunset Boulevard in WeHo.
"It's my favourite bookstore in town," he beamed.
