Editorial Reviews

Review

“A new book has a very new twist on the O.J. Simpson and the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Rob Goldman.” (USA Today)

“OJ Simpson was the prime suspect for the murders because he helped cover up his son's crimes and, in effect, allowed himself to take the fall, the book claims.” (Daily Mail)

Bill has turned up some new, very interesting and troubling information about this case. . . . It is information that deserves to be put before the public; it deserves careful consideration.

” (Dan Rather)

“But the celebrity detective ups the ante on controversial theories in his new book: O. J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It.” (Hollywood.com)

“While the book's bombshell claims have not been proved -- authorities in California have yet to comment on them -- Dear insisted he can back up every allegation.” (Huffington Post - Huffington Post)

“We spent about 40 minutes speaking with Dear yesterday, and while he didn't convince us that O.J.'s innocent, his arguments aren't too far beyond the realm of possibility.” (The Village Voice)

O.J. is Innocent and I can Prove It provides a wealth of additional details and background information that help to establish potential motive, means and opportunity – all of which is supported by medical reports, personal interviews, deposition transcripts and physical evidence. O.J. is Innocent and I Can Prove It, then, is an important book for several reasons. First, it dares to raise questions that will not sit well with those whose only interest is in upholding the status quo, regardless of whether or not justice was served. (What if O.J. Simpson was at the crime scene – but only after the murders occurred?) Second, it publicly calls out the authoritative bodies that have seen the evidence but continue to ignore it. And third, and perhaps most importantly, it challenges readers to open their minds and entertain the notion of, what if? If we dismiss this book without giving it the consideration it warrants, then we are every bit as guilty of the kind of rush to judgment that its author rails against.” (John Valeri, Hartford Books Examiner)

About the Author

William C. Dear has worked all over the world as a private investigator. He began his career as a police officer in Miami, Florida, and opened his own investigation agency in 1961. As a certified instructor in the field of homicide, Dear is a renowned speaker at conventions and professional workshops. Dear has received national and international acclaim on cases that received worldwide news coverage, and is the author of The Dungeon Master, about the disappearance of James Dallas Egbert III. He lives on his ranch in Mt. Calm, Texas.

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

Customer Reviews

This book is well written and well researched.
Kinder
If he really wanted to sell books, he would write that OJ is guilty because those books sell a lot more.
Sylviastel
The police decided O.J. was guilty without even investigating him and any other suspects.

I've read many O.J. Simpson books, but this one is probably the most important. The book "O.J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It" by William C. Dear is a must-read on several levels. The most obvious level, of course, is that it quite compellingly presents an argument for O.J.'s innocence in the killings of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. (However, it posits O.J. helped the true killer cover up the crime and took the blame, so to speak, for the true killer.) The book presents a suspect whom the police never interviewed BUT a suspect for whom O.J. got a defense attorney for the day after the murders for no apparent reason. O.J. also has a history of cleaning up after this suspect's violent acts. This suspect was never interviewed, police didn't bother to look into him, so why the defense attorney?

Who is this suspect? Jason Simpson, O.J.'s son (who was 24 at the time of the killings). Now, let me say something here. My purpose in this review is not to persuade you O.J. is innocent or that Jason is guilty. I'm not going to get into debates about that UNTIL you've read this book. Then we'll talk. ;-)

My mind remains open as to who killed Nicole and Ron, but Jason is someone the police should have interviewed for sure. He has blackouts, has assaulted multiple girlfriends, describes himself as a Jekyll and Hyde, was snubbed by Nicole on the day of the murders, had a handwritten time card on the night of the killings (the only handwritten time card among computerized punch-outs) and no alibi. In interviews (not police interviews, of course), Jason Simpson's story keeps changing. The book gives a long, detailed list as to why O.J. is innocent and why Jason should be considered a major suspect.

I borrowed a friend's kindle just to see if it would work for me and this book was on it, so I am embarrassed to say I read it. And now to redeem myself I am going to try to save you from it.

I have not thought a lot about OJ, but always came down on the "both/and" side of things. OJ both committed murder and was framed. The substance of this book can be summarized in about five pages. The rest is just a nauseating repeat of the same facts over and over again.

1. Jason Simpson, OJ's oldest son, from a criminal profilers point of view has a more likely criminal and medical profile to be capable of murder than does OJ. This is based on past incidents of quite violent domestic abuse and a sordid history of mental illness.
2. Jason Simpson did NOT have an airtight alibi on the night of the murders. In fact, there is evidence that people covered for him (sometimes contradicting each other in the process.)
3. OJ hired a prestigious criminal attorney for his son the day after the murders, before he had even hired criminal lawyers for himself.

And theories:

4. OJ was at the crime scene after the murders, but did not commit them. Instead, he took steps to cover for his son.
5. The motive for Jason killing nicole was that she and her family said they would dine at the restaurant he was head-chefing, but she stood him up and went to Mezzaluna instead. This was a blow to his pride.
6. Dear found a knife in Jason's belongings that may or may not be the murder weapon.

There! Now you don't have to read the book! Because the rest of the book is just Dear's egotistical ramblings about his grandiose ideas of himself and his illegal activities to build evidence for his theory.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Did The Juice kill his ex-wife Nicole and Ron Goldman? A jury said no. Now, Mr. Dear says no.

However, Mr. Dear, a private investigator, spent his own money and years and years of his own time, searching for the truth. The argument he makes is compelling, and I would like to see the case reopened.

Dear interviews witnesses not spoken to before. He turns up evidence not listed with the police. He answers questions about the blood in the Bronco (or the missing blood as it turns out). He suggests the hiring of a lawyer for OJ's son the day after the murders was done with some informed knowledge of need.

I prefer to see justice attained in the courts of law instead of the courts of public opinion and media hype. However, with LAPD turning down every overture Dear made to them as well as to the attorney general, his book is an interesting commentary on a famous case gone wrong.

Since the murders, I had often wondered about the role of AC Cowlings and of Jason Simpson. Dear provides answers.

A great work of individual pride, "OJ Is Innocent," is worth the time it takes to read and assess it.

Dear's book is a very interesting read. It is a bit long and repetitive, and the author talks about his credentials and how many people he's convinced of his theory a bit too much, but overall the circumstantial evidence is compelling. What Dear has uncovered and deduced at the very least warrants a follow up by the L.A. District Attorney's office. Let's talk about legal theory. Why would O.J. cover for his son if Jason actually did kill Nicole and Ron? Obviously, a father will often times cover for a child, especially when a murder is involved. And remember, California is a death penalty state. Jason, a young unknown black male, probably would have been facing the death penalty if he had been tried for the murders. Conversely, O.J. was a middle aged much-loved sports celebrity and a father to two young children. The odds were far less that the D.A.'s office would seek the death penalty if O.J. were the one on trial. O.J. may have been prepared to go to jail for the murders to spare Jason the death penalty. The most damning bit of evidence that Dear uncovered was that O.J. hired a criminal defense lawyer for Jason rather than himself the day after the murders. Why would O.J. hire an attorney for his kid if the kid hasn't done anything wrong? At that point in time O.J. obviously knew he was a prime suspect, yet he gets an attorney for Jason and not himself. That behaviour is very telling. Now think about this: whoever that attorney was that O.J. hired for Jason must have been told why he would be representing Jason. In other words, if we believe Dear's theory, the attorney knew Jason committed the murders and O.J. was innocent.Read more ›
