Kim Goldman: I Thought About Killing OJ Simpson (Video)

Friday, 09 May 2014 02:35 PM

By Alexandra Ward

Kim Goldman, the sister of the late Ron Goldman, said she considered killing O.J. Simpson after the former NFL star was acquitted of her brother's murder nearly 20 years ago.

"I was driving in a strip mall and this figure walked in front of my car, and I knew it was him," Goldman told Savannah Guthrie on the "Today" show Friday. "I was 100 percent confident. I studied him, I watched him, I knew that swagger, and I put my foot on the pedal. I white-knuckled it, I was revving the engine, and I thought, 'I could take him out and nobody would ever know.'"

Goldman, whose memoir "Can't Forgive: My Twenty-Year Battle With O.J. Simpson" hit bookstores last week, was just 22 when her older brother was found murdered along with Nicole Brown Simpson on June 12, 1994. O.J. Simpson was ultimately charged with the crimes but later acquitted after a media storm of a trial.

In 2008, Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in a Nevada prison stemming from an unrelated case involving robbery and kidnapping. Goldman said that the sentence was a form of justice for her family, even though the crime had nothing to do with her brother's murder.

"It's justice for different reasons," she told "Today." "There's a little part of me that thinks, 'Finally, he's locked away' ... I was always a little nervous that he was going to pop up anywhere, so I like that he's locked up. I'm thrilled with that."

Even though it's been nearly 20 years since Ron Goldman's death, his sister said sometimes it still feels like it was yesterday.

"My brother's gone, and every day I'm reminded of his loss, and I've worked really hard to find a good, healthy balance in my life," she said. "I'm an advocate for victim's rights, I counsel teenagers, I'm raising a beautiful 10-year-old. It's important for me to find a healthy way of coping. Writing was incredibly important to me. For as long as my brother's gone, the loss will be here, and there's no way to find closure in that."
