The Los Angeles Police Department have determined that a knife found at the former home of O.J. Simpson is not linked to the murders of Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1994.
Police detectives came to the conclusion after nearly a month of forensic tests.
“We have confirmed, we have determined, there is no nexus,” Police Captain Andy Neiman said Friday, according to The Associated Press.
The knife was found more than a dozen years ago by a construction worker, but was only recently investigated after being in the possession of a retired LAPD officer since its discovery.
Investigators had previously stated their skepticism about the likelihood that the knife could be the murder weapon, noting that its small size meant it couldn’t have inflicted the type of damage the victims sustained.
Simpson was found not guilty of the two murders, but is currently serving 33 years in prison after being convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping charges in 2008.
