Time: 12:19:16 PM
The three people who looked in Nicole's driveway that night or drove past it were: Pablo Fenjves, who saw no vehicles there when he looked at 11:00, Lewis Karpf who saw NO vehicles there when he got home between 10:35 and 11:00, and his girlfriend Eva Stein.
This is what Stein told Johnnie Cochran:
Q: ALL RIGHT. DO YOU KNOW ABOUT WHAT TIME IT WAS THAT YOU BECAME AWARE THERE WAS SOME ACTIVITY IN THE ALLEYWAY BEHIND YOUR RESIDENCE? DO YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT WAS?
A: YOU MEAN AS FAR AS THE POLICE COMING THERE?
Q: YES, AS FAR AS THE POLICE.
A: I DON'T KNOW THE EXACT TIME. I KNOW THAT IT WAS AFTER MIDNIGHT, BUT I DO NOT KNOW THE EXACT TIME.
Q: ALL RIGHT. SOMETIME AFTER MIDNIGHT; IS THAT CORRECT? DID YOU GET UP AND GO LOOK OUTSIDE?
A: YES, I DID.
Q: YOU SAW POLICE CARS OUT THERE?
A: I SAW POLICE CAR DOWNSTAIRS, RIGHT.
Q: DID YOU SEE ANY OTHER CARS OTHER THAN THE POLICE CAR?
A: NO. JUST THE POLICE CARS.
Q: AND YOU DIDN'T --
A: ACTUALLY ONE POLICE CAR.
Q: ONE POLICE CAR? AND YOU DIDN'T TALK TO THE POLICE THAT NIGHT, DID YOU?
Q: DID THEY COME AND TRY TO TALK TO YOU THE NEXT MORNING AT ALL?
Q: ALL RIGHT. SO IT WASN'T UNTIL NOVEMBER THAT YOU SPEAK TO THE POLICE; IS THAT RIGHT?
The eyewitness testimony at Rockingham clearly demonstrated that people, as a rule, do not notice or recall seeing parked cars even when they were present if they were not specifically looking at where the vehicle was parked. Kato didn't see O.J.'s Bronco on Bundy or Ashford when it had to have been in on of those places. O.J. did not recall seeing Kato's Nissan. Allan Park did not recall seeing O.J.'s Bronco anywhere at any time. Lewis Karpf, therefore might have passed Nicole's Jeep without noticing it. But it's quite a stretch to see how Stein AND Fenjves could have looked right at that spot and not recalled seeing the Jeep. -- Jasper
