Dan Patrick, renowned sports personality and talk show host, did not hold back when asked by O.J. Simpson if he believed he was a murderer.
Simpson, famously acquitted in the murder trial of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, had asked Patrick for his opinion during an interview.
Without hesitation, Patrick made it clear that he firmly believes Simpson is guilty of the crimes.
In 1994, the bodies of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were tragically found brutally slashed in Brentwood.
O.J. Simpson was arrested after a slow police chase and later stood trial for their murders.
Despite being found not guilty by the jury, a significant number of people still believe that he is responsible for the deaths.
During a break in their interview, Simpson turned to Patrick and posed the question of whether he believed him to be a killer.
Patrick, known for his no-nonsense style, did not shy away from his true thoughts. He boldly reiterated his conviction that Simpson is indeed a murderer.
“We’re just sitting next to each other. Like four feet apart, and he goes, ‘You think I did it?’ And I go, ‘Did what?’ I wanted him to say it. So, I said, ‘Did what?’ And he said, ‘Killed those two people.’ And I said, ‘Yes,’” Patrick explained to Andrews and Thompson.

It takes immense courage to confront someone accused of such heinous crimes and to assert that belief directly to their face.
The implications of Simpson’s guilt or innocence are significant. If he is innocent, he poses no harm to society.
However, if he is guilty, as Patrick firmly believes, it means that a dangerous individual has escaped justice.
Simpson, for his part, has claimed that he would seek out the real killers. However, his own actions and public statements have done little to support this assertion.
Simpson has even expressed fear of encountering the actual person responsible for the murders, claiming that he avoids Los Angeles for this reason.
Dan Patrick’s view on the O.J. Simpson murder trial is not unique. Many others share the belief that Simpson is guilty, while some maintain his innocence.
The outcome of the trial did little to sway public opinion, with the general consensus remaining divided.
