O.J. Simpson passed away in April.

In the footage, Jim claimed he was installing telephone equipment in Wayne’s home not long after the murders when Al showed up.

Jim alleged that Al told Wayne he needed help after being arrested for his involvement in the infamous O.J. car chase. Al apparently threatened Wayne that he would reveal what he knew about the murders if Wayne failed to help him out of the infamous Bronco chase scandal.

Wayne knew O.J. from throwing several parties at his bachelor pad. The businessman was meant to tesify in O.J.’s case about the several occasions where Nicole came to the house in the middle of the night and cried out for help. The late mother-of-two apparently told Wayne that O.J. had beaten her, however, Judge Ito refused to let Wayne come before the court.

As for Al, he was a close pal of O.J.’s, who allegedly knew a lot about the football player’s crimes. A former adult star he dated once told Time Magazine that Al told her, the murder knife "sleeps with the fishes."
