I knew a woman who believed that she was the cause of her ex husbands murder. Now if you might hear her talk and take some of what she said out of context, you may very well have thought it was a confession. Now the only reason that she believed this was because she had seen a strange car driving past her house, noted it but did not report it. He was not killed any place near her house but she felt that "if only" she had reported the car her husband would not have been murdered. It is not unusual for especially divorced spuces to go thru this "if only" process and act as if and say things that seem to be a confession, cause for a while they do belive that they are at fault.'' One of the biggies is "if only I had been living there, then it would not have happened". So I am sure that OJ has made some of these unrealistic guilt statements. I have no doublt that he probably said something to Grier that out of contex might have sounded like a confession. This also may have been what was behind his problem with the lie dectector. These people actually believe it is their fault and it takes time and usually therapy to convince them otherwise.

Fuhrman went so far in his notes to avoid saying anything that would suggest guilty knowledge that his avoidance (by way of strategic errors) suggests guilty knowledge. How else could have gotten so many crucial facts wrong and mentioned the bloody glove almost as an afterthought? To avoid, play down or misrepresent crucial evidence as often as he did in his notes, he had to KNOW what evidence was crucial.
I've been searching without success for my copy of Murder My Sweet. I seem to recall that the guy who got "sapped" was set up to be murdered using an expensive necklace and a phony story to lure him and detective Phillip Marlowe to the murder scene. The murder victim was hit so many times that when you look at it through the prism of the Bundy killings, you get the impression that it was supposed to look like a rage killing. Marlowe was supposed to look like he killed the man so brutally because the victim was a homosexual. They didn't say things like that in movies that were made in the '40s but they sure knew how to throw a hint. The overkill was a big hint-just as it was with the murder of Ron and Nicole.
Consider the word that Fuhrman used to kick off the Laura Hart McKinney tapes (an epithet commonly applied to homosexuals, which graphically describes the "Brentwood salute"). Now consider what was supposed to have set O.J. off - something that we heard O.J. shouting about on the 911 tape in '93. Consider the fact that Nicole was hit in the back of her head hard enough to cause brain damage and the overkill wounds found on Nicole and Ron. The Murder My Sweet parallel to the Bundy murders becomes much closer than it seems on the surface.
Toss in the rumors that someone (my guess is Fuhrman) started to suggest that Ron had sex with men as well as women and you get a version of Murder My Sweet on the Bundy murder scene that could have easily been inspired to some degree by the movie.
The details of the Bundy murders that you don't find in one movie or television show you will find in another. That's why your discovery of the information about the PBS film that Pat told us about was so important. It's yet another piece of evidence that fits the picture of a killer who got his ideas about the killing and the framing from film and television. The closer the movie is in time to the murders, the more specific the parallels to the movies.
Who do we know who was that interested in ideas from screenplays?
Fuhrman's Murder in Brentwood is loaded with them, so is his record.
In Fuhrman's interviews with his police psychiatrist where he said that he would have killed his second wife and her lover if he had caught them together, he also boasted about how much he loved to beat up people. I can see what made you think of Murder My Sweet. When I think of the money to be made from real murder, a famous suspect and a "great detective' with ambitions to be a writer like cop-turned-writer Joseph Wambaugh, I can see what would have mad Fuhrman think of it, too. --Jasper
