Oscar Pistorius is getting some advice on his murder trial from a guy who has been there: None other than O.J. Simpson.
Pistorius is accused of murder in the February 13 killing of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in the couple’s South African home. Pistorius says that he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder, but prosecutors say that the act was premeditated murder.
According to the Associated Press, Pistorius said in his defense: “I fail to understand how I could be charged with murder, let alone premeditated murder, as I had no intention to kill my girlfriend; I deny the aforesaid allegation in the strongest terms.”
Jon Dawson of Kinston.com reached out to O.J. Simpson, who was once the subject of his own high-profile murder case, one which the public is still divided on.
“It really sounds like the local police have it in for Pistorius,” Simpson said via telephone. “Just because he admitted to knowing she was in the house before he pulled the trigger doesn’t mean he’s guilty. If there’s no sign of intent, you must acquit.”
Simpson is currently serving 33 years in the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada for stealing his own sports memorabilia at gunpoint. He seemingly later recanted his statement to The Free Press when it was found that Pistorius may have been doping.
“He’s as guilty as the day is long,” Simpson remarked. “In fact, I believe he’s the real killer I’ve been looking for all these years. He’s all hopped up on testosterone and my wife had a habit of falling for the angry, athletic type. Yep; it was him!”
