I am willing to consider that he might not have done it, mainly because I've read a couple of online conspiracy theories that his mentally ill son did it and OJ tried to cover for him. As far I know, most people think he did it and got away with murder. Simpson also had a long history of violent behaviour and a controlling personality, especially towards women.
