What must be said first is that this was called a mountain of evidence.
What I always thought of it was that it was Too Much and Too Rare when we heard the details of it.
The biggest thing towards innocence is the glove behind Rockingham--w/out any evidence of how it got there and the fact that it had other unknown people's hair on the surface of it which have never been ID'd. A glove --if used by OJ--might have OJ's, Nic's and Ron's blood and hair on it, it would NOT have Unknown people's hair on the surface of it in the blood.
Next, we have evidence that is UNimportant but was treated as important evidence towards OJ. And that is the fiber evidence from the Bronco. That carpet fiber was all over the area--easily brought in by the dogs or other people and it was, even as Ito said, in ALL 28 of the Ford Taurus's driven by the cops that night. THAT cuts down on it being unusual or Rare (as the FBI attempted to say it was). That could and probably was Pre-existing carpet fiber that had nothing to do with the crime.
THen there are the gloves in general--gloves that are similiar to gloves that OJ wore but never actually connected to him and gloves which were too small for OJ to wear. Aside from that hair was on the one glove that belonged neither to OJ or to Ron or to Nicole.
The knit hat--a hat that had similiar hair to OJ--that is the best that they could say--but it also had hair that belonged to several different people (unidentified people) were on it as well as NO blood was on it at all which is almost an impossibility given its location on the ground or that the killer allegedly wore it when cutting the throat of Nicole or during a fight with Ron.
Blue-black fibers--could have come from anywhere. Could have been on the clothes prior to the murder.
Blood with OJ's DNA at the scene--BUT in such a degraded condition ---more degraded than it ever should have been in the short time between the murders and the when collected and processed. More more degraded than the blood collected earlier at OJ's house but kept in the same place in the truck.
The BM shoe prints. THese prints have an obvious planted pattern and most likely not really a size 12 shoe and nobody ever put any BM shoes in OJ's ownership--regardless of late arriving photos that "look" like they might be BM shoes.
People will insist the blood is the most important. However Badly degraded blood at the scene and blood on your own property do not make a strong case. If it did, be sure to murder someone where the person you want to frame has bled in the past and is still there and you have it made.
Most importantly, in this case anyway, is that the blood drops and blood in the Bronco is found AFTER the cops have learned from the motel clerk that OJ has a cut on his left hand.
