O.J.’s second son, Jason, was born in April 1970. If Arnelle was the most recognizable Simpson sibling, Jason was probably the best-known for all the wrong reasons. Years after O.J. was acquitted, Jason emerged as a possible suspect in Nicole and Ronald’s murders.
The theory first came about in 2012, when private investigator William Dear published his book, “O.J Is Innocent and I Can Prove It.” It wasn’t the first time William investigated a murder using the same method. His efforts have previously solved the murder of a man named Dean Milo, resulting in prison time for Dean’s brother and ten other people.
What Does Arnelle Do for a Living?
Arnelle has experienced tremendous loss and tragedy for someone so young. She has shared how the arrests have impacted her ability to chart a stable career path. Despite trying to start fresh, the shadow of her family’s tragic past seems to continue looming over her.
Arnelle previously worked for a rapper named Hash and has also dabbled in fashion. When she’s not producing fashion shows, Arnelle is busy taking care of her father’s estates and NFL pension.
She Was the Brains Behind O.J.’s Book
After O.J. got out of prison for the first time, he began working on his book “If I Did It.” Everyone knew he was writing it but did not understand why. In reality, Arnelle encouraged her father to write and publish the book in 2007 — just before he went to jail again for armed robbery. At the same time, raging debates arose regarding profits from book sales.
Nobody wanted to see O.J. profit from a horrific crime he allegedly committed. Arnelle defended her father in the lawsuit, but the Goldman family ultimately won the case.
The Reasoning Behind Jason as a Suspect
How did William arrive at his theory? He outlined exhaustive reasons in his book. Jason had a history of drug and alcohol abuse. He has also been diagnosed with intermittent rage disorder and other mental health issues.
The boy was taking prescription medicine to regulate his temper, which helped sometimes. Yet, Jason repeatedly indulged in self-harming behavior. Cops also arrested him for assaulting a former employer with a knife. Jason being the murderer seemed a plausible theory, but it remained a theory.
William Dear Is Convinced Jason Is the Real Culprit
After a thorough 18-year investigation into the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, William concludes that O.J. was not the murderer. The private investigator met with every potential suspect and conducted interviews. He also established irrefutable timelines, visited the crime scene, and poked holes in several alibis.
The evidence pointed to Jason committing the crime in a fit of rage. William believed O.J. arrived at the scene shortly after, only to discover what Jason had done.
