The story of Ron Shipp is inextricably woven together with that of O.J. Simpson. In the hours following the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, Shipp was a confidante of the NFL Hall-of-Famer.
It would not take long for their friendship to be altered forever by a gruesome reality. According to Shipp, O.J. did it. He murdered his former wife and her friend.
Now, with Simpson in the news all over again, this time obtaining parole from kidnapping and armed robbery charges in Las Vegas, I visit with Ron Shipp. We talked about his book, crime in America, and his role in the "Trial of the Century."
