|Texas P.I. Bill Dear once posed as a doctor to try and get O.J. Simpson's son's medical records.|
The story about a Texas private investigator's new book claiming that he has proof O.J. Simpson isn't guilty of the 1994 murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman is getting the kind of media buzz you would expect when someone makes a claim as absurd as "O.J. didn't do it."
The book's author is P.I. Bill Dear, and this is actually the second
time he's attempted to use a work of alleged non-fiction to let the world know that Jason Simpson, O.J.'s son, is the real killer.
We spoke with Dear over the weekend. Read all about it here
. The story about his new book has since made its way to the Huffington Post, US Weekly
, and an assortment of other national media outlets. What none of those media outlets mention -- and, frankly, we didn't know until after writing our post about Dear yesterday -- is that he's basically been maniacally stalking the younger Simpson for the last 17 years.
In 2001, Dear pimped his first book blaming O.J.'s son for the murders (he published the book himself). It was titled O.J. Is Guilty, But Not Of Murder
, and it just so happens that Voice
editor-in-chief Tony Ortega penned a 7,200-word article detailing Dear's creepy -- probably illegal -- methods of stalking Jason Simpson while Ortega was working for what was once the New Times Los Angeles. Ortega's piece was titled O.J. Confidential; Texas private eye Bill Dear spent nearly six years and $1 million trying to pin
the Bundy murders on O.J.'s son Jason. But his theories stretch credibility and
his tactics stretch the law.
