Overlooked Suspect - The Movie
see and hear the evidence that has never been made public
“I wish someone would show this movie on TV so that it would reach a bigger audience. It's amazing. I don't know how anyone that didn't change their mind after either reading the Book or seeing the Movie. Thank you #AMDOCS for showing it in Palm Springs 2 years ago”
So nothing ever seemed right about that trial. After all of his bizarre behavior, I thought he was probably guilty or knew something about the murders. However, the media never seemed to let it drop. The media seemed like vengeful furies intent on turning the story back in the direction of his guilt.

I thought it was OJ too, until I read about his son, and now I think Jason did it. How could he not have done it? He had everything--the knives (he was a chef who took them everywhere), the motive (infatuation with his step-mother), and the documented rage in which he once held a knife to his girlfriend's throat....more

The DNA evidence (one in a billion chance) can not differentiate between a father and son - they have the closest DNA possible. So all that DNA "one in a billion" odds has to be thrown out the window regarding OJs son. All the other evidence presented in the case applies equally to the son and OJ (son lived in that house on his father's property and had access to the car, his father's shoes, father's gloves, etc.). I believe that the odds that the son did it are very high - much higher than the odds that OJ did. Of course - OJ couldn't make this case in court: he was likely covering for his son

Bull....they are just saying he's guilty because of the White reaction and the power of ownership. The white public owns this sentiment and it's played out over and over again by comedians, pundits and talk radio. What do you expect? Some Blacks just have given in for the sake of conversation. You never here anything on t.v. that talks about OJ's innocence. Nothing....not one opinion of program.

I have read it was OJ's son who killed Nicole, and OJ was protecting him. The son wore the hat, the son was charged in previous attempts of harm using a knife ( his former girlfriend), the son had been in psyche wards

Does it not strike you odd, Lois, that after 20 years of one of the most watched and analyzed trials of the century that not ONE shred of evidence or ONE witness has been presented to suggest anyone else but O.J. was involved? Hmm....

Guess I'm in the minority here but I think O.J.'s son committed the murders and O.J. knew it and covered for him

There is a really good documentary about the OJ trial that examines the failures of the prosecutors and the LAPD & how those failures resulted in a not guilty verdict. ...

There were too many games played by the prosecutor to get an accurate idea of just what happened. In addition the prosecutor never considered any other possibility than that O. J. Was the murderer. The trial was a scandal.

I am a white woman and I watched the trial every and all day. I believe OJ is INNOCENT. They never looked for anyone else. I have over 30 books and spent the last 20 years looking over every detail.
"There is so much more in the new book but if you don't do anything else, see this movie. Guaranteed to change your mind on OJ verdict!"

"I love this movie was made because its how I saw things at the time . I told someone after the trial that Jason did it and they thought I was crazy . Im making them watch this when it comes out . EVERYONE should see this!!!""The sad thing is nothing will ever be done because too many people will never let it happen . If they start looking at Jason than it would mean they were wrong about OJ and there was a conspiracy to convict him. I really believe Mr. Fung wanted to tell the truth but didnt want to lose his job ."

"Thank you very much for your courage to take on this very worthy battle and doing the job most are afraid to admit was never done. I feel like as close to 100% on the same page as your theory as I personally can be. Great Job!"
The film follows William Dear as he compiles evidence for over 16 years on the murders of O.J.’s wife, Nicole, and her friend, Ron Goldman. With video footage and evidence, the Director is able to create an incredibly compelling film that manages to make a 19.5 year old case very relevant again.
The film begins with a montage of news footage from the time of the double murders. The way that it intercuts with each other doesn’t only tell the audience the story of the case, it also manages to convey the sense of urgency that existed, which really puts the audience in the mindset of the time. The film doesn’t shy away from using the gruesome photos of the crime scene to emphasize the devastation the murders caused. Seeing the mangled bodies of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman puts everything in perspective like nothing else could, and I commend the filmmakers for not censoring the images for the film.
What really made the documentary compelling, other than the evidence that was gathered, was the way a mixture of footage, talking heads, and graphics were all used to prove points. Often, documentaries stick to talking heads, having people explaining everything to the camera rather than demonstrating the facts. Here, we even have transcripts from depositions read by voice actors so that the facts can be shown and also remain interesting to watch. The talking heads the film does have are all experts at what they do, which removes the documentary of much of the bias it would have if anyone connected to the Simpson family was interviewed.
The purpose of the documentary was to showcase that O.J. was innocent, and that the real murderer was likely his son, Jason. Over 16 years, William Dear and his team researched anything that might help find truth in the case, and over that time they accumulated evidence that clearly showcased O.J.’s innocence.
One may ask why Dear is so insistent on still pursuing O.J.’s innocence so long after the incident occurred and the accused was acquitted. O.J. was never convicted of the murder, so nobody really lost.
Nobody, other than all the people with Jason Simpson comes in contact with, who have to deal with his violent and erratic behavior. Even if justice is never really served, the filmmakers have put a compelling case into a great documentary, and anyone who has an opportunity to view it again, it is highly recommended.
