OJ's Bronco

 

The 1994 white Ford Bronco is one of the most famous pieces of evidence in the whole case, right up there with the leather glove. This is mainly due to the live police chase that was shown nationwide as OJ and Al Cowlings cruised slowly down Interstate 405, reportedly suicidal. Up to 20 news helicopters followed the events and all major networks interrupted their programming to broadcast the chase. This led to a recorded 95 million viewers and Domino's to report "record-breaking" sales of pizza delivery. Spectators lined his route and stood on overpasses with signs urging him to flee. Because of millions of viewers, people came to have a vested interest in the case and a sense of participation in the unfolding drama, making the trial "must see TV". Broncos and OJ became forever linked in people's minds, so much so that the following year, sales of Ford Broncos rose 25%, although Ford and auto salesmen were quick to point out that it had nothing to do with OJ.

 

The killer used O.J. Simpson's white Ford Bronco for transportation to and from the crime.

O.J. Simpson's 1994 white Ford Bronco, was the vehicle the killer drove to Nicole Brown Simpson's house, the night of June 12, 1994. After the murders, the killer returned the Bronco to Simpson's home, and parked it on the street outside Simpson's Rockingham gate.

The facts, evidence and testimony are overwhelming to support this.

 

Simpson's white Ford Bronco's regular parking place was on the street outside the Ashford gate.

Simpson's white Ford Bronco was not parked on Rockingham or Ashford during the time of the murders.

Simpson's white Bronco was seen leaving the murder scene.

Simpson's white Bronco (with Simpson driving) was seen near the murder scene.

Blood evidence was found in Simpson's white Bronco.

Trace evidence was found from Simpson's white Bronco.

Simpson's white Ford Bronco was not parked on Rockingham or Ashford during the time of the murders.

June 12, 1994 10:25 PM Allan Park

Allan Park drove the limousine that took Simpson to the airport. Park arrived at Simpson's estate, for the very first time, at about 10.25 PM the evening of June 12, 1994. He located Simpson's house by seeing the house number "360" painted on the curb just outside the gate to the estate on North Rockingham. Park arrived about 20 minutes earlier than the time he was told to be there. After identifying the entrance, he continued the short drive to the intersection, Ashford, and turning right. saw another gate and entrance into the estate. He drove past it, turned the limousine around, and parked opposite the Ashford gate.

When Park finished smoking a cigarette, he drove the limousine back to the Rockingham gate to enter the estate. He pulled up even with the entrance and looked up the driveway. He thought he saw two cars parked along the left side of the driveway, one behind the other. He determined that the other entrance would be easier to enter. Park backed the limousine up to the intersection, turned and parked at the Ashford gate.

Allan Park never saw Simpson's white Bronco parked on Ashford or Rockingham during this entire time.

June 12, 1994 Approximately 10:30 PM Robert Heidstra

June 21, 1994 Detective Dennis Payne interview with Robert Heidstra, a neighbor of Nicole Brown Simpson. *Evidence Dismissed, Det. Tom Lange and Det. Phillip Vannatter

Mr. Heidstra stated that he walks his two dogs on a nightly basis at approximately 2200 hours. His route of ravel always consists of the same streets although the direction he takes varies. On the night in question, Sunday evening, June 12, 1994, he left his apartment with the dogs at about 2215 hours. He walked east on Dorothy to Westgate, them north on Westgate to Gorham. He turned left on Bundy and began walking south. He indicated that Bundy Drive has a large curve in the roadway at that location and because of that curve he was unable to see the front of the Brown's home. Mr. Heidstra stated he walks the same route every day and is familiar with the dogs in the various residences as well as the exterior of the various residences themselves.

Shortly after turning south on Bundy Drive, Mr. Heidstra heard the sound of the Akita dog owned by Nicole Brown...The dog began to bark furiously. The barking was non stop and the dog appeared agitated. Mr. Heidstra is familiar with the sound of the bark of the Akita as it barks frequently whenever Mr. Heidstra passes the location with his two dogs.

Believing the dog might possibly be loose and a danger to him and his dogs, Mr. Heidstra changed his route of travel and turned in an adjacent alley which paralleled Bundy Drive and which would take him back to Dorothy Street. As he reached the alley, he heard a male voice loudly cry, "Hey, Hey, Hey," then the sound of a large metal gate closing. It was his opinion the sounds came from the Brown home, as that residence is the only one in the area with a large metal security gate. He then heard the sounds of two men loudly arguing, but he was unable to discern what they were saying specifically. All the while, the Akita continued to bark, non-stop, and, in fact, continued to bark until about 2300 hours.

As Mr. Heidstra reached Dorothy Street, he looked west and observed a large white vehicle, which he indicated was shaped similarly to his own Chevrolet Blazer,...on Dorothy Street, at the intersection of Bundy Drive. The white vehicle turned right, south on Bundy Drive and drove from the location at a high rate of speed.

Simpson's white Bronco (with Simpson driving) was seen near the murder scene.

June 12, 1994 Approximately 10:45 PM Jill Shively

GRAND JURY, TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 1994 

As I proceeded to the intersection, out of the corner of my eye I saw something, a white car or truck, Bronco, come right into my--in front of me and it didn't have any lights on. So I couldn't see it. He stopped--he stopped in the middle of the grassy median right here and he turned around and looked at me.

It stopped, because there was a car that was going westbound, a Nissan. From what I can put together, the Nissan, I think, stopped to avoid running into the Bronco. But when it stopped, it blocked the Bronco and it stopped right there. And then the man in the Bronco started yelling at the guy in the Nissan to move his car.

The Bronco had to stop, because the car, the Nissan was trying to move out of the way, but they kept moving the same way. Like the Bronco would move forward, the Nissan would move forward. So then they both started to move backwards and the Bronco tried to go around the Nissan in the back, but the Nissan was backing up. So they did it again in the front.

I was able to see the person seated in the Bronco, He turned around and glared at me after he had almost hit me, and then I--then he started yelling at the guy in the Nissan to move his car.

When I made eye contact with him he didn't say anything.

He just gave me a real quick look, like what was I--you know, it looked like he was mad or angry and like what was I doing to him or something. I felt like he was looking at me like I had almost hit him or something.

The driver of the Bronco stuck his hand out of the driver's side window and leaned out to yell at the guy.

He kept telling the driver of the Nissan, "Get out of the way; get out of the way. Move the car; move. Get out of the way." And then the more he yelled, the driver of the Nissan, the guy in the Nissan got upset and he was trying, to get his car out of the way. But they were both running into each other each way they went.

He glanced back at me and I could see him full-face diagonally. Then he was yelling at the driver like he was in a hurry to get out of the situation he was now in.

I recognized him right away.

I saw O.J. Simpson.

And then finally the Nissan went ahead and went west and the Bronco turned and took off behind the Nissan going northbound on Bundy.
