"One of the working theories in play," a police source told The ENQUIRER, "is that Jason, loyal to his dad, hid the murder weapon after O.J. return to his Rockingham estate following the brutal slaughters. In the police timeline, O.J. wouldn't have had time to bury it. A limo driver was waiting to drive him to the airport to go to Chicago! He was rushed, and even dropped the so-called 'bloody glove' on his property."
In a bombshell report, private investigator Michael Martin told The ENQUIRER that he saw Jason (pictured) the night of the June 12, 1994, slayings — sitting in O.J.'s white Ford Bronco outside of his stepmom Nicole's condo
in Brentwood, Calif. And The ENQUIRER previously revealed Jason's troubling private diaries from that same time — where he ranted: "A knife cuts away the parts of something not needed. This is the year of the knife for me!”
The ENQUIRER discovered that Jason's sick journals provided a startling glimpse into the personal demons of O.J.'s troubled son. Texas-based private investigator William Dear – who has solved cold cases for the FBI – obtained Jason’s diary from an abandoned self-storage unit in Los Angeles.
In one chilling entry, Jason wrote: “My laugh … was the laugh of a madman. The blood I mentioned previously, coming from my arm? A direct result of madness.” In another, he penned: “I can’t help but think of the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. A man that when induced with a chemical becomes a madman.”
The journal is also laced with descriptions of Jason's “self-destructive behavior” and drug use, including cocaine and ecstasy. “I have fun when I’m slipping … drinking,” read one disturbing entry.
Jason added: “I saw myself on my trip, and I wasn’t disappointed with what I saw. I was, however, uncertain about certain aspects of myself. My insecurity and knack for letting it become uncontrollable and ultimately contributing to the demise.”
William commissioned Texas handwriting expert Don Lehew to analyze Jason’s journals, who concluded that there was “no doubt” that the samples matched Jason's handwriting. The hidden journals are even more disturbing when considered alongside other contents that William found inside the storage unit. He told The ENQUIRER that the cache of evidence included a knife that Dr. Vincent DiMaio, a forensic pathologist, found to be consistent with Nicole and Ron’s wounds.
William also secured this photo of Jason lying in bed with his dog while wearing a black cap – just like a cap found at the crime scene that was determined to have traces of dog hair! What’s more, O.J.'s son refused to take the powerful psychotic drug known as Depakote in 1994, Jason's ex-girlfriend told William. A prescription had been written for Jason after he had been psychiatrically treated for violent impulses and behavior, William has alleged.

The detective said a report from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center dated January 1994 – five months before the murders of Ron and Nicole
– identified Jason as a patient who “feels like he’s going to rage.”
One journal entry elaborated: “Here I sit. On a hospital issued, pink, plastic and wood chair. On level two. Yes, level two. I survived 21 years and two suicide attempts, countless drug-filled nights!"
"I will now not stop until final justice is given to the victims,” private eye Michael told The ENQUIRER. “If Jason Simpson was ever charged in this case, O.J. could be arrested and charged with aiding and abetting. There is no double jeopardy if it were to be a charge other than murder. I need to continue this and make right for all what I should have done 20 years ago.”
For his part, O.J. – now jailed in Nevada on an unrelated burglary case – has declared of his son: “The theory is just one of a thousand regarding the murders, and the LAPD has fully investigated this and felt it has no merit.”
