quiet night in CA ... two people slashed and stabbed to death
at the front entrance to a beautiful condominium in the upscale
neighborhood of Brentwood. A dog "wailing" as he
was roaming the neighborhood with blood matted on his underside
fur and blood on his paws ... barking for someone, anyone to
help his slain mistress. Two small children laying in their
beds asleep with no idea of the horrible murder scene at their
front gate, and the neighborhood going about their normal business
with no knowledge of the evil taking place in their quiet world
that Sunday night.

of Justice: Closing the Book On the Simpson Saga
by Daniel Petrocelli, Peter Knobler Daniel Petrocelli is
the attorney who represented Fred Goldman and his family in their
civil suit against OJ Simpson for the death of their son Ron (he
also coordinated the simultaneous prosecution of suits brought by
Ron's biological mother and the estate of Nicole). Petrocelli
tells how he was able to succeed where Marcia Clark and Chris Darden
failed. "He was handsome, mischievous, wholesome; he was
"the Juice." If I permitted Simpson to endear himself to the jury
on that witness stand, we would lose. If the jury believed Simpson
when he looked them in the eyes and swore on his children that
he did not commit these murders, the case would be over. No amount
of blood, DNA, or physical evidence would overcome that one defining
moment of this trial. I could not allow that to happen. I had read
everything, learned everything, spoken to everyone who would speak
to me, immersed myself in Simpson's life and was ready to take
him on. I had worked obsessively for more than a year to prepare
for this moment ... I had to take control of the examination from
the beginning. I had to control a man who never once in his life
let anyone control him."
Evidence: How DNA is Revolutionizing the Way We Solve Crimes
look at how breakthroughs in DNA testing impact on criminal investigations.
From OJ Simpson to the disappearance of Chandra Levy and the reopening
of the Edward De Salvo case, the collection and use of DNA in criminal
investigations has become a controversial and often confusing burden
of proof. Blood Evidence explains the principles and science behind
DNA testing and shows how it has both helped solve some of the most
puzzling criminal cases in recent history and been used to discredit
eyewitness accounts and physical evidence found at the crime scene.
