FBI releases hundreds of pages on OJ Simpson murder investigation

The FBI released roughly 500 pages in connection with the mid-1990s O.J. Simpson murder investigation in which the former NFL star was acquitted of killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

Investigators took a close look at the bloody Bruno Magli shoe print found at the scene, clothes, Simpson’s infamous Ford Bronco and hair samples.

Wednesday marks 30 years since the infamous double murder, which shocked the country with its brutality and dominated headlines for more than a year. 

Rather than surrender to police as he had agreed to, Simpson instead led police on an infamous low-speed chase through southern California, riding in his white Ford Bronco as fellow NFL retiree Al Cowlings drove.

Investigators went to great lengths to try and link the shoe print to Simpson. It was his size and came from a rare Italian brand that sold less than 300 of that particular model across the country, according to reports from his trial.

At trial, an FBI expert on shoe treads testified that he traveled to two factories in Italy as part of the investigation, the New York Times reported at the time.
