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).
OJ Simpson was forced to sell his Heisman Trophy to satisfy part of damages awarded Ron Goldman’s family. Apparently, the unconvicted murderer would like to reclaim some of the other property he was forced to part with. He is being accussed of resorting to self-help remedies in seeking the return of former possessions by a sports memorabilia dealer who claims Simpson took a number of items from him at gun point in a Las Vegas hotel room. One of the items is the suit OJ wore the day he was acquitted of murder.
Will Madeleine McCann join the infamous list of children reported missing by parents who actually had a role in their murder? The British four year old was reported taken from an apartment on May 3, 2007 while on vacation in Praia da Luz in the Algarve, Portugal with her parents. Now, Portugese police have named both parents suspects.
