Recent reports indicate that O.J. Simpson has the knife that he used to murder his ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and Ronald Goldman in his possession, and is making plans to sell it to a collector for $5 million.

Simpson, currently in prison on kidnapping and armed-robbery charges, was acquitted of the brutal murder of both Brown and Goldman nearly 20 years ago. The murder weapon was never recovered. Sources now say that Simpson has had the knife hidden away all these years and is seeking to profit from it by unloading it on a wealthy memorabilia collector.

According to insider sources, “O.J. wants the deal to be a well-kept secret. He's looking for a strictly cash deal so that the money can be deposited in offshore accounts and can't be traced directly to him.”

Although authorities were unable to recover the knife in 1994, forensics experts say the weapon is likely a German stiletto with a six-inch blade, which was theorized to have been dumped in the trash at LAX or buried in a park somewhere near his Chicago hotel. Sources say that Simpson has not given any indication where the missing blade is and will not until the money has been successfully transferred to his account.

“O.J. will not tell the wealthy collector where it is stashed until the money goes through,” according to the source. “But did say he initially kept it hidden at his Rockingham Estate and then moved it to Pacific Palisades, California, where he rented a house after he was acquitted.

So, will the knife actually be sold? Is it real? Only time will tell. Perhaps this deal will come crashing down on Simpson the same way his book deal did several years ago.
