Editorial Reviews

In this real-life investigation piece, private investigator William C. Dear knows one thing: O. J. Simpson is innocent of the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman. William Dear sponsored is own six-year long investigation to prove this pact, and look at overlooked or missing witnesses and evidence. The largest part of theory is the little-known suspect Jason Simpson - O.J. Simpson's eldest son, who had a history of mental instability. All of this makes O.J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It an incredible alternate look at the famous 1994 murder trial. Narrator Fleet Cooper does an excellent job laying out the material through audio.

Publisher's Summary

The shocking truth about the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman.

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 16 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-listen.

Groundbreaking content, horrible writing

I have never wanted to rage quit a book so hard before I read this one. On the one hand, Dear really did some ground breaking research into this case and came across some very compelling pieces of evidence (For example: the day after the murders, OJ retains an attorney...not for himself, but for his son!). In terms of investigative work, I give Dear an A+. It really is a game changer.

However, the writing is beyond abysmal. I mean, holy repetition batman! I would listen to it for three hours and he would say nothing I didn't already know from the previous chapters. It was literally just him telling and retelling the same thing over and over. And he seemed to think a lot of this investigation was really exciting, even when it didn't pan out: For instance, he spent a great deal of time stalking some psychiatrist that OJ saw and covered every instance of this in his book. I just kept waiting for all of this to pay off and it never did. He recounted every instance that he *told* someone about his theory--and not just in the way that he just said he had a conversation with this person and what they said--he would recount it verbatim.

The book has been covered pretty extensively in the media, so unless you're a die hard crime junkie, I would recommend reading the content on the internet as opposed to reading the book.

Awesome!

Would you consider the audio edition of O. J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It to be better than the print version?

Yes, because someone else reads it to me.

What did you like best about this story?

The narrator did a GREAT job. I loved the writing and the research done to compile the acts. Best of all, I liked that it did what it set out to do: Change my mind as to who killed Nicole & Ron.

Which scene was your favorite?

I think the interview with Dr. Henry Lee was great.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

I never even knew Jason was a suspect. I think he may be charged one day.

Good Book

If you could sum up O. J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It in three words, what would they be?

Book that makes you think.

Any additional comments?

This was a good book that got me to thinking that O.J. might just be innocent. William C. Dear brings up some very good points.

Very Good Read

I have never been able to convince myself that OJ is guilty. I have always believed that the "mountain of evidence" pointing to OJ left questions unanswered. This book, this theory, these facts .... well..... questions answered and case closed.

Compelling New Information to Consider

With renewed interest in the Murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman due to the 20-year anniversary of the incident, I have binge-watched a docudrama, "The People v O.J.Simpson" and the five-part documentary on ESPN, "O.J., Made in America." I found this book when wanting to read more about the event.

I found William Dear's investigation interesting and compelling. He introduced a lot of new information, leading one to wonder why the L.A. Police did not pursue any possible suspects outside of O.J.
Confession: I watched the whole trial 20 years ago and would've voted to acquit O.J. back then. The prime reasons were the ineptitude of the criminalists' and detectives' acquisition and handling of the blood evidence. The documentary even shows Marcia Clark having exclamations of incredulity when discussing the handling of the vial of O.J.'s blood collected, Van Natter putting it in his pocket, then heading over to the Rockingham estate and oh! finding blood on the socks. Also, Henry Lee, the blood spatter expert, indicated that the manner of the killings would indicate large amounts of blood to be found on the perpetrator. The blood drops found on O.J.'s Bronco, and at his house was inconsistent with that.

This book is filled with much circumstantial evidence against O.J.'s son and adds a greater level of doubt that O.J. was the perpetrator.

Worth the read!!!

Now can't wait to see ID channel doc re this book!

This is the 1st audio book I have ever listened to straight through w/in a 24 hour period. I was riveted and wanted to know what happened next. Well written, spoken and very thorough. You get to be a part of Bill Dear's thought process. Just when you have a question the answer follows. I can't wait for the ID Channel & Martin Sheen to air his story!!!

Fascinating and thought provoking with a few holes..

I’ve read many books on this case and this one really blew it out of the water. I too have always thought there was a missing piece to this story and this very well could be it. the title of this report however, is sensationalist and misleading. OJ is by no means “innocent”. in fact, I believe he is at the very least an accessory. What I think is missing from this investigation is more interviews with friends and family of Nicole (besides Ron Shipp) because they could speak to the family dynamics from her perspective and the relationship between Nicole and Jason. That would be the key to the case for me. Nicole was abused time and again by OJ. - obviously the apple does not fall far from the tree, and Jason unfortunately acquired some awful genetic characteristics, compounded by growing up in an abusive home. One thing I can’t seem to wrap my head around: OJ is a narcissist and loved himself and his image more than anyone, I believe even his own children. Given Jason’s psychological issues, he probably would not have gone to jail. So why would he cover for Jason, his “fuck up” son? That leaves me to believe that OJ was an accessory or had more involvement. If he ratted Jason out, Jason would no doubt tell the full story. But OJ wanted full control over the narrative and pushed the “absolutely 100% not guilty” rhetoric. Hence, why the whole story has yet to come to light and probably never will. Unless Bill gets Jason to come clean!

Best O.J. Book I’ve Read

I was more skeptical of this book before reading it than I had been of any other O.J. Simpson-related book I have read. But as I read more and more, I became more and more hooked. It made me think more than any other book about O.J. My skepticism faded as the author’s in-depth investigations were explained and more and more evidence was presented to support the author’s theories.

I'm convinced!

Wow!!! Mr. Dear has done seen incredible job investigating. He has practically delivered an open and shut case for any prosecutor willing to go against the grain and pursue the case. The fact that Nicole and Ron's family haven't gotten behind this guy makes me wonder.

A must read

If you have any interest in the OJ case then read this book.
I’ve always thought the jury made the right decision weather O.J. was innocent or guilty.
I now think the possibility of his innocence is almost proved!
The book was a bit long winded and repetitive at times but still worth the listen!
Mr Dear you did a great job and I hope you are still pressing for this case to be reopened!
