The case hit headlines again last week (ends04Mar16) after a folding knife, discovered on Simpson's old estate, which was demolished in 1998, was turned over to police. The blade was unearthed in 2001 by a construction worker who handed it to an off-duty police officer. The now-retired cop kept the weapon at his home until January (16), when he passed it on to a friend working in the Los Angeles Police Department's (LAPD) Robbery Homicide Division. The knife is currently being tested for DNA, fingerprints and other biological evidence, but a spokesperson for the LAPD has cast doubt on the blade being the murder weapon. "We can't say for sure that it is or it isn't (the murder weapon); it appears that it isn't," Officer Ricardo Hernandez told People.com. However, "More tests are going to have to be conducted before we can determine if that was the weapon used."
