O.J Simpson says he avoids trips to Los Angeles because he could be sitting next to a killer.

"I have trouble with L.A. People may think this is self-serving, but I might be sitting next to whoever did it. I really don't know who did this,' he told The Athletic.

"I figured eventually somebody would confess to something, you know? I had one suspect I told my lawyers to look at. I still think he might be involved, but I can't talk about it," he continued.

O.J. was charged with the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald "Ron" Goldman who were stabbed to death outside her Los Angeles condo in the Brentwood on June 12, 1994. O.J. was acquitted. 

 USC teammate Ron Yary thinks O.J. did kill them.

"The thought of taking a knife and plunging it into another person that you love and care about — or even that you're angry with — takes a hell of a lot," he told the outlet.

"Even in war, to kill a person with a knife is intimate. I don't know if there's a harder way to kill someone. You have to be out of your mind to commit a crime like that," he said.
