Ron Goldman's Sister: Still 'No Doubt' OJ Killed My Brother

Tuesday, 13 May 2014 07:57 PM

The sister of Ron Goldman says she's still haunted by the grisly murders of her brother Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson some 20 years later — and she still has no doubt that football legend O.J. Simpson is guilty.

"With every passing day I never know what my grief is going to bring to me that day," Kim Goldman told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"We make the best of it every day and I make room [for] the grief and that's kind of how I live my life now.

"There's no doubt that [Simpson is] the sole person responsible for stabbing Ron and Nicole."

Story continues below video.

Goldman has written a new book about the notorious crime — for which Simpson was acquitted in a criminal trial, but found liable in a civil trial brought by the victims' families.

It's called "Can't Forgive: My Twenty-Year Battle with O.J. Simpson," published by BenBella Books.

Simpson — a star running back with the Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers in the 1970s — was charged with the fatal stabbings of his ex-wife Nicole and Ron Goldman outside her condo on June 12, 1994. He led police on a bizarre car chase through Los Angeles before surrendering.

The murders led to a racially-charged trial in which an army of renowned attorneys, including Johnnie Cochran and F. Lee Bailey, defended him. Kim Goldman doesn't blame prosecutors Marcia Clark and Chris Darden for losing the case, which was televised around the world.

"I don't hold them responsible. I think that they sacrificed so much of themselves, of their lives, of their careers, to advocate for Ron and Nicole," Goldman said.

"I think that they were up against such a larger-than-life defense team [and] defendant.... I don't know that anything would have made a difference.''

Goldman discounts one speculative theory that Simpson may have been taking the rap for his son.

"He’s too much of a coward and he's too narcissistic to do that. There's no evidence pointing to Jason [Simpson]...  pointing to anybody else except [O.J.]," she said.

"Everything points to him, nothing to distract us from that as far as I'm concerned."

Goldman believes that race did play a part in Simpson's acquittal, which came after one of the investigating detectives, Mark Fuhrman, was found to have once used a racial slur.

"[Simpson's] celebrity dictated so much of what went on in that room but race plays a part in all of our courtrooms," she said.

"We saw it in Trayvon Martin, we see it in other high profile cases .... When the defense team is not entirely confident in their defendant or in their case they throw whatever they can up against the wall and see what sticks and in this one it worked.

"Had Fuhrman way back in the beginning of our trial said, 'Yes I used the n-word,' it probably would've taken the wind out of their sails."

Simpson is currently behind bars in Nevada, serving a 33-year sentence for a 2007 armed robbery.
