From the Inside Flap

“Never assume. Always verify.” Every detective, public defender, and investigative reporter should have those four words tattooed in black ink on their forehead. Then every time they would look at themselves in the mirror they would be reminded of the great responsibility they have to themselves and to the public to check their facts before jumping to conclusions. Lives are on the line – and not only those of the falsely accused. It is with this in mind that I ask you to step back to re-examine…When Orenthal James Simpson stood and faced the jury, the words ‘Not Guilty’ rang out like a rifle shot. Many wept with relief, while others cried foul over the verdict. For months, prior to and during the trial, the private lives of the families of the victims and the accused were dissected and put on public display. While the proceedings unfolded in the courtroom, the people of the world were riveted to their television sets and web sites, devouring each grim bit of evi! dence or testimony.

Opinions were skewed, arguments over the jury’s decision were heated. O.J. Simpson became the butt of hundreds of jokes, while the families of the victims were left to mourn their own and seek civil remedies for tragic losses.

As the frenzy died down, the media armies moved on to other stories, and people moved on with their lives – each with their own opinion of what really happened. Although the case is over, and O.J. walked away a free man, the question still remains – Who killed Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman?

Stunned by the brutality of the murders, and at the same time fascinated by how the case was being investigated, veteran detective Bill Dear launched his own investigation into the facts. Dear, within weeks of the murders, climbing over the fence at Bundy, sitting at the front door of Nicole’s condo and recreating in his mind that dark night of Sunday, June 12, 1994, was convinced that O.J. Simpson could not have committed the murders but may have been at the crime scene soon after they occurred. If this is true, O.J. has known all along the identity of the killer.

Once Dear established in his own mind that O.J. was innocent, he focused his attention on six possible suspects. After carefully investigating the facts and not assuming what he had been told, read or shown concerning the alibis of each of the six, Bill Dear was more determined than ever to find the truth. His grueling, six-year search finally narrowed to one major suspect. The facts speak for themselves.

Learn for whom and why O.J. may have been willing to stand trial in the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman…as you walk step by step beside Bill Dear on this compelling journey.

Bill Dear has uncovered startling new evidence that is certain to change everyone’s perception of O.J.’s guilt. This evidence has never been made public.

More About the Author

After 17 years of personally investigating this case, "O.J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It" uncovers critical evidence pointing directly to a different suspect in this case, and it's definitely not OJ Simpson," said renowned private investigator and author, William C. Dear. "There is little doubt that OJ was at the murder scene, but only after the murders, and it's time for the local authorities to pay attention and act on this information, so the families of these victims can know the truth before the real killer strikes again." This book includes shocking photos and new evidence about the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Lyle Goldman, that was totally overlooked by the original investigators. Evidence that points directly to a surprising new suspect, very close to OJ.

A new, compelling documentary on the case and on the Overlooked Suspect, recently won "Best Investigative Documentary" at the 2011 DocMiami Film Festival in Miami Florida. To view the trailer and learn more about the film, visit www.overlookedsuspect.com

I read this book last night right after I received it in the mail. It's absolutely eye-opening. First, you have to have an open-mind to read this book.

If you have concluded that O.J. Simpson is guilty of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, then you should not read this book unless you are to ready to learn something or use your mind to determine your own conclusions.

The author here does a briliant job in developing a case against Jason Simpson, O.J.'s son. Of course, maybe Jason would have emerged as the prime suspect if the police or district attorney's offices talked to him. That's right, the LAPD and the district attorneys like Marcia Clark and Christopher Darden already concluded that O.J. Simpson committed the crimes.

This book states he was protecting his son, Jason, who you would learn is emotionally disturbed and suffers from mental illness and has a history of blindess. Oh let's not forget that Jason is an excellent chef who carries around his own knives in his chef's kit.

Remember, O.J. hates the site of blood which is documented. This book has also painted a portrait of Nicole Brown Simpson not as a victim but a strong woman who survived a violent domestic relationship to O.J. Simpson but their relationship was far more complicated than the media allowed to believe.

She was a woman who was enjoying the good life and the freedom to pursue men but she always talked about O.J. to others. When they were together, they were inseparable. Apart, they talked little about anybody else to their friends and relatives.

O.J. wasn't or isn't stupid.

Having just completed the book itself and having read or re-read the negative reviews here, I have to say that the absence of detailed criticism is not surprising. Examples are not given of mis-statements of fact or of specific instances of silly reasoning, and there is a good reason for this: the book does not have such flaws. Nor is there any mention in such reviews of specific evidence against O.J. Simpson which Dear neglects to address (and he does wrtie about the cuts to the outside of the O.J. Simpson's left hand in the book).

To defend this book on a point-by-point basis would risk ruining some or most of the enjoyment for those about to read it for the first time. More than ample evidence or reliable information is supplied for just about every essential element of the theory. Granted, that evidence can seem a little slim at first, but later witnesses invariably offer meaningful corroboration. The very few exceptions to my general point about essential elements of Dear's theory are relatively minor and understandable. For instance: there is no proof that the killer called O.J. Simpson within a few minutes of having committed the crimes. Given the time frame involved such a call had to have been made if Dear is correct. Now it is so that O.J. Simpson had a long history of covering up for this person and the motivation to continue doing so, but it is still hard to picture such a call being made so quickly after the murders, given the dynamics of the relationship he had with this person and the state of mind of the killer at that time.

For me the more interesting parts of this book have to do with how Mr.

Like most Americans, I have had enough O.J. over the last few years to cause a chronic case of acid reflux. In fact, I would have skipped this book except for it's author. The author is a highly regarded private investigator whose knack for solving difficult, high profile cases is well established. Although somewhat flamboyant and self promoting, he nonetheless is highly competent and sucessfull in a field where many fail.
The author brings this experience into his own private investigation of the infamous crime. Acting on his own, without a client, he dissects the murder and attempts to verify the evidence. Beginning with a pool of suspects, he methodically narrows the list to one major suspect. He profiles the mental state of the suspect by medical records and interviews with those close to the suspect. He reviews the crime scene in person and consults with leading experts in each scientific specialty involved in analysis of the evidence uncovered. Along the way, he verifies his conclusions with leading members of the legal, scientific and law enforcement community. Finally, he keeps his suspect under surveillance and monitors his trash for incriminating evidence to support his suspicions.
Not merely a review of the case, like most true crime documentaries, this one takes an active part in an investigation and disputes some major assumptions by the LAPD & Prosecutor's Office.
This book includes diagrams, photos and documentary evidence supporting it's findings.
I do not rate many books with five stars, but this one is a masterpiece! So ignore the silly photo of the author cradling a gun and touting him as "the real James Bond" on the promo cover, and get this book. While I don't agree that it conclusively solves the case, it caused me to look at the murder in a different light.
