OJ Simpson's former manager has claimed he knows who murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in 1994 - but he "can't disclose it right now".

Days after it emerged that the LAPD was testing a knife recovered from Simpson's former home that had been stored for almost two decades, Norman Pardo gave an interview to KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO.

Simpson was acquitted of both murders in 1995 but is still widely suspected of the crime.

Pardo told the Los Angeles radio station: "I know who did it and I knοw why they did it.

OJ Simpson's former manager has claimed that he knows who is responsible for killing Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in 1994

"I just can't disclose it right now."

Pardo said that he and Simpson had not disclosed the information to authorities at the time because when they tried to speak with police, "they took all my stuff regarding the incidents".

He claimed officers were already looking into the information when they raided his office.

In an interview with People Magazine, Pardo said Simpson, who is in prison for an unrelated robbery conviction, "isn't losing any sleep" over the fact police were now examining the knife which was found by a construction worker, then passed to a now, former police officer, who stored it until earlier this year.

According to the People article, Simpson burst into loud, uncontrollable laughter after news broke about the discovery at his former Brentwood mansion.

"It's complete bullshit. But this is all they got. It's pathetic, really pathetic," Simpson is said to have told a prison source.

"Let me tell ya'll something, I'm not that stupid, I got on a plane that night going to Chicago, that's all I'm gonna say."

It is not known when the LAPD will announce the results of its examination of the knife.

If the weapon is identified as the murder weapon, Simpson will not be retried for murder due to the double jeopardy law, which prevents people from being tried for the same crime twice.
