LOL…I heard this story on the news this morning too
So DNA is actually pretty hardy; however, it is soluble in liquid. If the knife was pretty protected I could see them possibly finding something but if just buried in the ground, and shallow enough where penetrated by rain water, I wouldn’t expect there to be DNA present after this amount of time. But of course you never know until you swab it and process it.
Interesting. But I'd bet dollars to donuts that OJ didn't do it… his son did it.

If it was planted...why wasn't it found at the time?
How did OJ cut his finger? He lied about where and when it happened, changing his story from it happened at home to it happened in Chicago…
People that use knives to murder often will cut themselves in the process.

Chain of evidence will make it difficult to admit in court.
True, I suppose. Lots of people cut themselves with knives doing lots of things that have nothing to do with murder. People cut themselves lots of ways that have nothing to do with murder or knives. So anything we say is purely speculation.
Except like I said in the beginning during initial police interview he said he cut himself at home (to explain the blood trail in his driveway from the bronco to front door).
Then later said he cut himself on a broken glass in hotel while he was in Chicago.
its only speculation when you omit his statements, once you include them, it denotes deception on OJ's part.
His cut finger and blood trail evidence (at scene, in bronco and at home) and conflicting statements during interrogation present the full picture.
All that fits…
