The five-part ESPN documentary series O.J.: Made in America shows never-before-seen photos of the bloody crime scene after Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman’s murders.
The moment comes in part 4 — which airs on ESPN Friday, June 17, and is available for streaming now on the WatchESPN app — when prosecutor Bill Hodgman is explaining his theory of how the murders might have happened. While he’s speaking, all the horrific photos are displayed, including two extremely graphic shots that have never been made public. In the two gory pictures, viewers see the close-up knife wounds on Brown Simpson’s and Goldman’s necks for the first time. Brown Simpson’s wound is so large that she is almost decapitated.
Hodgman gruesomely describes how he believes that Simpson might have stabbed both victims and then subsequently slit their throats. He calls the slaughter “overkill.”
Director Ezra Edelman told Business Insider that the two photos will be included in the original airing of the documentary on Friday and on the app, but during later showings on ESPN, the photos will be blurred so that it is appropriate for all audiences.
The 1994 murders have been making headlines recently with both the 30 for 30 documentary and the FX miniseries The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, which dramatized the controversial case. The case remains open because Simpson was acquitted for the murders in 1995. While officials can continue to investigate as new evidence emerges, the former football star cannot be prosecuted again.
Simpson, 68, is currently serving a 33-year prison sentence in Nevada after he was found guilty of robbery and kidnapping in 2008. He is eligible for parole after nine years behind bars, which could be as soon as October 2017.
