Default OJ's Murder Weapon Found?

A construction worker found a knife buried on the perimeter of the former O.J. Simpson estate ... and it's currently being tested by the LAPD in a top secret investigation ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

The story is incredible. We're told a construction worker found the knife years ago -- we have heard several different stories, ranging from "several years ago" to 1998, when the house was demolished.

The weapon is a folding buck knife.

Our law enforcement sources say the construction worker took the knife to the street, where he saw an LAPD cop. He told the officer where he found the knife and the cop took it.

Turns out the cop -- who worked in the traffic division -- was off duty at the time, working security for a movie shoot at a house across the street on Rockingham. Our sources say the officer took the knife home and kept it ... kept it for years.

In late January of this year, after the cop retired from the LAPD, he contacted a friend who worked in LAPD's Robbery Homicide Division (RHD). The cop told the friend about the knife and said he was getting it framed to put on his wall. He wanted his friend to get the DR (Departmental Record) number for the Nicole Brown Simpson/Ronald Goldman murder case, which he planned on engraving in the frame.

We're told the friend was indignant, and told his superiors. The brass was outraged and demanded that the retired cop turn the knife over, which he did.

Our sources say the knife is currently being tested for hair and fingerprints. It will be moved to the Serology Unit next week, where it will be tested for DNA and other biological evidence.

One source familiar with the investigation tells us, cops who eyeballed the knife think it could have blood residue on it, but it's hard to know without testing because it's extremely rusted and stained.

The investigation is top secret. It's been logged into the LAPD's computer system outside the official case file to maintain security. Our sources say, since O.J. was found not guilty, it's still an open case. That means cops can continue investigating, but O.J. cannot be prosecuted again -- double jeopardy.

Could he be charged with something "else" ? Wrongful death ? I know he lost that civil case, but could it be brought back up as a criminal case ?

Even if he could be retried, I would suspect the knife could never be admitted as evidence because of chain of custody issues.

I hope to hell they charge that dummy with obstruction and whatever else for not turning it over.

Maybe this will prove my theory that this was a suicide. No way Detective Nordberg killed those people.

The best we all can hope is where he is right now, sitting and rotting in jail, hopefully for the rest of his miserable life.

How about federal civil rights violations? Or did Ron and Nichole not have civil rights? It appears these days that federal charges don't constitute double jeopardy.

Wasn't there a theory he was covering for one of the kids? No double jeopardy there.

I wasn't sure if this could be real . . . it is mind blowing.

I am in LA right now and it is on the local news so maybe it has some merit Idk.

IF (and that's a big if) an officer did such a thing he should suffer some SERIOUS consequences . . . scary to think he may not be the only one, and this may not have been his only time.

Amazingly stupid (if true) in soooo many ways.

Not sure about California specifically, but I'd guess he'd be beyond the statute of limitations for something else like use of a weapon in commission of a felony or something similar. Homicide, rape, kidnapping, and crimes against the government would generally not have a statute of limitation.

Pretty crazy! You know this is the murder weapon. They found it buried in his yard. Why else would anyone bury a big knife?

I agree, very slimey. I suspect this defense would be the double jeopardy argument and the chain of evidence argument giving the knife no evidentiary value. But if I'm wrong and being the possible obstruction of justice pertained to a felony, then maybe it could get back dated and get his pension revoked along with any charges? Maybe they'll find something g in their contract regarding a code of conduct clause that might get his pension looked at as well? Might just end up getting painted a sleazebag and forgotten about....

I don't think there is a statute of limitations on murder. It doesn't matter what is found on the knife. He can't be tried again and even if he could, it would get thrown out because of chain of evidence.
