O.J. Simpson will confess to the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, his old friend Ron Shipp has told the New York Daily News.

"The guy is in total torment today," Shipp said at the premiere of ESPN's "O.J. Simpson: Made in America" documentary, the latest episode in what has been a cottage industry on the entire saga. "Someone told me he is 300 pounds and he looks horrible. O.J. has always felt his appearance meant everything and now, deep down inside, he is starting to live with himself."

Shipp testified at Simpson's 1995 murder trial that Simpson had confessed to him that he had dreamed about killing his wife, although the defense lawyers always implied that Shipp was only trying to gains some fame of his own.

Shipp, a former police officer, said he believes Simpson will tell the truth when he gets released from jail for an armed robbery conviction, which could happen as early as next year.
Simpson was found not guilty of the double murders, but a civil jury ordered him to pay $33.5 million in punitive and compensatory damages in finding him liable for them.

The speculation about Simpson comes as work is being done on another documentary on the subject, which is being produced by actor Martin Sheen and is expected to span six episodes, according to the The Hollywood Reporter. The documentary is expected to focus on a range of conspiracy theories surrounding the murders that will prove Simpson's innocence.

Shipp said he should have known at the time of the murders that Simpson carried them out, but told The New York Daily News "I didn’t really see him at the time doing that because of my love for him. I didn't want to believe the things I saw."
