Having been burned (rightfully so) once before with this O.J. mess, this time around Fox tried to present this special - a repugnant exploitation of the murder of two people - as a teachable moment. Regan recently revealed that Simpson's lawyer had confessed to his client's involvement around the time of the original interview during a conversation over the phone.
For over a decade, the tapes of the infamous exchange with radio host and publisher Judith Regan were considered lost but have re-emerged, says Fox, which is finally airing the footage on Sunday. The special's executive producer, Terence Wrong, says Darden's "theory is that Charlie is OJ's alter ego".
The interview is from 2006 and Simpson gives a chilling yet emotional hypothetical perspective of how he would have murdered Nicole if he'd actually was guilty of executing the crime in 1994. This news led some of Jean's followers to question whether or not FOX would have pulled the episode following the Trial of the Century, while others noted that the interview had bumped The Simpsons from their usual Sunday night slot for the week. Two years later, Simpson was found liable for their deaths in a civil trial and was ordered to pay over $33 million to the families of the victims.

Among the intriguing early matchups is No. 8 seed Creighton and its star, Marcus Foster, against ninth-seeded Kansas State. Saint Mary's lacked high-quality victories, but it's tough on a West Coast Conference team to get those opportunities.
Nine years later, HarperCollins - owned by Fox's parent company - announced the publication of "If I Did It", in which Simpson would describe how the real murderer would have committed the killings. Though he does obfuscate a little with the help of an accomplice named Charlie.
He alleges that outside the house, he was confronted by Goldman and, soon after, by Brown, who fell and hurt herself.
Simpson said he kept a knife in the vehicle "for the crazies" and added that Charlie had followed Goldman, carrying the knife. It was supposed to coincide with a book, If I Did It, which detailed Simpson's hypothetical account of how Goldman and the mother of his children were butchered. "And to be honest, after that I don't remember what happened after that except that I'm standing there and there's all kind of stuff around". However, the book was written under the guise of fiction to protect Simpson's children. Officials never discovered who murdered them.
"Everything was covered, would have been covered in blood". He says Charlie came over to Simpson's home, told him what was going on and Simpson responded, "Whatever is going on it's gotta stop!" "It was terrible. It was absolutely disgusting".
