Lyle Menendez: I Heard O.J. Simpson Confess to Murdering Nicole! | Wireler
Folks, its ’90s Day on THG and we’re celebrating by remembering the heyday of the Simpsons.
No, not Homer and Marge — OJ and Jessica! Hear us out:
Earlier at the moment we reported that Jessica Simpson is feuding with Natalie Portman. As if!
Now, it is time to dig out your Doc Martens and tie a flannel shirt round your waist, as a result of yet one more Clinton period beef is making headlines. Boo ya!
This one issues two figures who loomed giant within the 90s — one largely forgotten, and one nonetheless very a lot part of the general public consciousness.
We’re speaking, after all, O.J. Simpson and Lyle Menendez.
Along together with his brother Erik, Menendez was imprisoned for the shotgun homicide of his mother and father in 1994.
The brothers have been locked up all through their prolonged trial, so by the point O.J. arrived on the cellblock in June of 1994, the Menendezes have been already veterans of the California penal system.
According to a brand new e-book by Robert Rand entitled The Menendez Murders, Lyle took O.J. beneath his wing, and the 2 of them rapidly developed a detailed friendship.
In reality, in accordance to an excerpt from the e-book revealed at the moment by Radar Online, O.J. confessed to killing his spouse in one in every of his first conversations with Lyle.
Rand claims that whereas Lyle and O.J. have been each ready for his or her attorneys within the jail’s “attorney room,” a tearful Simpson admitted to killing Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman after he “snapped in the heat of passion.”
“Lyle advised O.J. he should consider taking a plea deal,” Rand tells Radar.
“O.J. briefly considered that option – according to Lyle – but later told Menendez he couldn’t do that because it would ruin his reputation and he would never work again.”
In his e-book, Rand writes of Lyle’s recollection of O.J.’s early days behind bars:
“The first night was rough. I didn’t see him cry but I believe he was,” Erik recalled, in accordance to Rand.
“I could hear him moaning.”
Sounds like O.J. wasn’t lower out for all times behind bars, so it is a good factor (for him and completely nobody else) that Simpson was acquitted, regardless of having very clearly dedicated double homicide.
Of course, a number of years later, he was tossed within the clink for unrelated crimes and spent almost a decade in jail.
Lyle, now 50, has been in jail because the late George H.W. Bush was in workplace.
So justice was served in a single case … and, like, type of served in one other.
We would not name it a contented ending, but it surely’s an ending.
Now allow us to by no means communicate of ’90s Day once more.
