Reading your article again, I remembered an interview I heard on annonline a while ago. This was taped just after Murder in Brentwood was published. Ann is a very sympathetic interviewer and allows fuhrman to rant a lot. He gets really carried away over Captain York's part in the case. He recaptures his synthesis of the crime and works himself into a trance doing so. When he came to the part where O.J went after he had cleaned up in the maid's bathroom he says that after that he either went outside to enter through the front door, as testified to by Park, or continued into the house from the maid's quarters. It doesn't really matter which, said fuhrman, Park wasn't a very good witness and made some mistakes. It could be either way, he said.
Another interesting thing was when he told about the lie detector test he had just taken. He told about some of the questions he had been asked and didn't fail. One question was: "Did you find a dark sweat suit in the Rockingham washing machine?" At that time nobody had mentioned a sweat suit in a washer, nobody but fuhrman in his book. And fuhrman wrote: "Brad alerted R/H to freshly washed clothes in the washing machine. Brad described the clothes as black sweats, then and now." (Pg. 42) (In the later pocket edition he elaborated this two liner into a paragraph, involving himself in the discovery.)
If this was one of the questions that was given to fuhrman on the lie detector test, then fuhrman got away with at least one lie. I believe he is a man with no concience and therefore would get away with them all.
We know that fuhrman has a way of overdoing his explanations when he lies.
