O.J. Simpson 'If I Did It' publisher says book is murder confession
UPI News Service, 11/17/2006
O.J. Simpson's upcoming book amounts to a confession to the 1994 killing of his ex-wife and her friend, his publisher says.
The book, "If I Did It," scheduled for release Nov. 30, is a hypothetical account of how the former football star could have killed Nichole Brown Simpson and Ronald L. Goldman. He admits nothing.
But, publisher Judith Regan told The New York Times that, in her opinion, the book is an admission of guilt and she would have had little interest in it otherwise.
She said further that a lengthy interview on the Fox Television Network slated for Nov. 27 and 29, convinced her of his guilt, the Times reported.
Simpson was acquitted at his murder trial but later was declared responsible for the deaths in a civil trial.
While proceeds reportedly go to Simpson's children, book and TV plans spurred resentment from the Goldman family, to whom Simpson owes $33.5 million from the civil trial judgment.
