> California's freeways holding a gun to his head.
> Bloodstains on the car's central console which police had said consisted

> and the victims' blood. The discrepancy was not highlighted at the
> trial, which ended with the chief prosecutor, Marcia Clark, adding the

> Extraordinarily, police were in a position to mix and plant the blood
> the killings. The lead detective in the case requested and obtained a vial
> Mr Simpson's blood, and in a violation of normal procedures obtained
> of the victims' blood from the Los Angeles Coroner's Office. Such a
> would have meant the summary dismissal of a lower-profile case, according
> Donald Freed, a law professor who has written a book on the Simpson case.
> Detectives went back to the Bronco during their investigation but whether

> According to Mr Harpur, the Simpson trial should never have begun. Sloppy
