OJ Simpson’s meeting in the Las Vegas Palace Place hotel with sports memorabilia delears was audiotaped by one of it’s participants.
The graphic six minute tape was recorded on an Olympus digital voice recorder by Thomas Riccio, co-owner of Universal Rarities auction house. Riccio was present with four other men to help Simpson prove the memorabilia being auctioned by Alfred Beardsley and Bruce Fromong was stolen.
Riccio also claims to have audio tape of the police interview with Beardsley and Fromong; Beardsley and Fromong conceding they didn’t have a right to the memorabilia; Fromong saying he helped Simpson hide money in offshore accounts; and Simpson trying to convince him that there was no gun involved (cell phone voicemail message).

One of the items is the suit OJ wore the day he was acquitted of murder.« go back
