DALLAS - A private detective in North Texas has a pretty controversial stance regarding O.J. Simpson.
Bill Dear believes Simpson was framed for both the 1994 murders as well as the armed robbery in Vegas. He's written extensively on the subject and even participated in an investigative series.
For the last 50 years, Dear has been a private investigator. And since 1994, he's been fixated on O.J. Simpson. He’s the author of a book called "OJ Didn't Do It" and was also a part of a television investigation series on the Discovery Channel. He's considered an expert on the Simpson murder trial.
Dear showed us hundreds of pictures of evidence from the trial where Simpson was acquitted of killing his ex-wife and her friend Ron Goldman.
"Now we have an eyewitness who places OJ at the crime scene along with his son at 10:15 p.m.,” he explained. “O.J. lives four minutes away."
OJ's son, Jason, was never named a suspect. But in Dear's book, his theory focuses exclusively on Jason.
"He's 24 at the time, 5'11”, 235 pounds, on probation for assaulting his previous employer with a knife and was never interviewed by the LAPD,” Dear said.
Dear, who's never so much as met O.J. Simpson, believes O.J. was setup twice.
"Two deputies heard somebody from the DA's office say, ‘They couldn't get them in LA, but we're going to get him in Las Vegas,’” Dear claimed. “Wow! That meant a lot to me."
Now that the Nevada parole board decided to let O.J. out in October, Dear hopes for the best for him.
"I think he'll try to make a whole new life for himself,” he said. “What I prayed to God is they give this man a break.”
