    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...

    A construction worker found a blood-stained knife buried on OJ Simpson’s property “years ago” — and gave it to an off-duty cop who kept it in his home before finally turning it over to police, a report says. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the blade is a folding buck knife, which is now being tested for hair and fingerprints after being handed over to the L.A.P.D.’s Robbery Homicide Division in January. It will be tested for DNA and other biological evidence at the department’s Serology Unit next week, sources told the site.

Dr. Bennet Omalu, who was portrayed by Will Smith in the movie Concussion, told this week that he strongly suspects Simpson is suffering from CTE. "I would bet my medical license that he has CTE," Omalu said. "Given his profile, I think it's not an irresponsible conclusion to suspect he has CTE."

Fox News contributor Rod Wheeler provided a key piece of information about the case, linking the San Bernardino shooters to Mohamed Hassan, a known terrorist recruiter who has been on the FBI radar screen for at least seven years.

But that relationship became strained after Ronald Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson, who had divorced the retired football star, were both found slain in Los Angeles June 12, 1994.

Simpson lawyers argued in a final brief to the Nevada high court that a lower court judge was wrong to deny the former football star a new trial in his 2008 kidnapping and armed robbery conviction for a hotel room heist in Las Vegas. The filing, submitted Friday, came after Clark County prosecutors submitted documents Sept. 24 saying there was no need for another trial.

Galanter disputed that notion in a Las Vegas courtroom Friday.

    Leave it to third-string, has-been quarterbacks of the Republican Party to throw an interception at the precise moment conservatives are about to turn the game around. What is wrong with people like former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, former Senator Alan Simpson and Senator Orrin Hatch?

The Nevada Supreme Court voted 6-0 Thursday that Clark County District Judge Jackie Glass's decision to deny the press access to jury questionnaires from the 2008 trial was ill-advised given the press's First Amendment rights, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Friday. The state's top court said Glass's promise to jurors to keep the questionnaires confidential "does not supersede the public's and press's First Amendment right to access criminal proceedings." Court justices said they ruled on...
