The sensational O.J. Simpson trials gripped the country for a long time, from January 24, 1994, to October 3, 1995. Like his sister, Arnelle, Jason attended several court dates to support his father.
Unlike Arnelle, however, Jason never took the stand to testify on O.J.’s behalf despite believing in his father’s innocence. He chose to keep his feelings private, staying out of sight of the public and media throughout the trial.
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.
A Father Protecting His Son?
What about the famous speed chase right after the killings? To anyone who watched police cars tailing the white Bronco on TV, it seemed clear that O.J. was guilty. An innocent person would not indulge in such bizarre behavior. William’s take on the chase was different, however.
He believes O.J. knew Jason had killed Nicole and wanted to protect him. At the least, LAPD should have considered Jason a suspect instead of immediately assuming O.J. was responsible.
Where Is Jason Simpson Now?
Jason continues living a quiet life away from media attention. His name pops up now and then regarding his alleged role in the murders, but not much else. Jason is close to his aunt, Shirley, who cared for him and his siblings during the agonizing trial.
It took Jason a while to find his feet and way in the world after the tragedy. Eventually, he channeled his energies into a fulfilling culinary career. Jason lives in Atlanta, Georgia, where he works as a chef at a popular restaurant.
Sydney Brooke Simpson
Sydney Brooke Simpson was born in October 1985 – O.J. and Nicole’s first daughter. She grew up as an adorable child who occasionally made public appearances with her parents.
Sydney was only 9 when her mother’s brutal murder took place, too young to remember or understand everything. The murder trial upended her relatively private life till then. Sydney and her siblings came under intense media scrutiny overnight.
