With the controversy surrounding O.J. Simpsons hypothetical book (Which looks like it will never see the light of day). I have created this thread.

Simpsons guilt or innocence has polarized the community with the majority on both sides of the racial fence believing in his guilt.

There are other factors around the Nicole Brown-Simpson/Ron Goldman double murder that have not been given the scrutiny that they deserve.

If one looks to Wikipedia for a Joey Ippolito, you will find this entry:

Some believe Joey Ippolito hired a hitman who murdered Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman, because: Ippolito sold coc aine in Brentwood; Nicole and Ron's friends were buying or selling coc aine (including Faye Resnick); A.C. Cowlings was Ippolito’s bodyguard; Ippolito escaped parole in Florida three weeks before the famous double murder and made numerous calls to O.J. Simpson.

Who is this Joey Ippolito, what reason would he have for exterminating Simpsons ex and her lover?

Joseph "Joey" Ippolito, Jr. is a drug smuggler and distributor known for his connections to celebrities and organized crime figures. His father, Joseph Ippolito, Sr., was employed by Meyer Lansky and Sam “the Plumber” DeCalvacante. Joey has 8 brothers and sisters. His brother Frankie smuggled marijuana and his brother Louie is a convict.

There is a rumour that was whispered around Beverly Hills at the time of the murders:

Word was that O.J. Simpson had financed a wholesale coc aine distributorship employing a network of Fast Eddys and aspiring celebs on the Hollywood fringe. It is said that suppliers (Messrs. Ippolito and Lorenzo?) entrusted him, over a period of several months, with a sizable quantity of coc aine, on credit. Simpson, already struggling with past debts, was financially stressed by divorce costs, and Nicole was not exactly the thriftiest of wives with her designer wardrobe and jet-set vacations ...

Barry Hoestler, a private investigator hired for the Simpson case by Robert Shapiro, contended that Nicole entertained the notion of becoming financially independent by opening a restaurant with Ron Goldman as her partner, and financing it with coc aine profits (Frost). Hoestler also said that Nicole and her friends were “over their heads with some dope dealers.”

As one Beverly Hills observer put it, Simpson and his circle were under intense pressure, but optimistic, entering “a tough street business, fueled by a jolt of the goods from time to time.”

When Simpson’s suppliers insisted on payment, Nicole Brown-Simpson and friends suddenly found reasons to leave town. The rumor also suggests that from the start his suppliers considered Simpson a patsy. His suppliers were attempting to control him by controlling his finances. This was done by controlling the habits of Nicole’s circle. He attempted to patch up the marriage and failed.

Then we have the rash of violence that occurred surrounding Nicole Brown-Simpson, Ron Goldman and the Mezzaluna restaurant:

Yet another death scream resonating with Nicole’s belonged to Brett Cantor, the owner of a Hollywood nightclub called the Dragonfly. Nicole and Ron Goldman were regulars at the club. Cantor was murdered on July 30, 1993 in a vicious knife attack nearly identical to the one that dispatched Goldman. The club owner, too, had been cut from behind. The killer started on the lower left side of the neck, drew upward and away to the right. Both Goldman and Cantor were stabbed repeatedly on the arms and chest. In both cases, the knife had a long but thin blade. At one point, Shapiro planned to argue that the same killer was responsible for the bloody melee on Bundy, but the LAPD insisted (with psychic certainty) that there was no connection between the two cases (LaFontaine).

Not only was there Cantor, who may be remembered for having the band Rage Against the Machine on his record label. There was also Michael Nigg a friend of both Cantor and Goldman. Goldman and Nigg worked at Mezzaluna at the same time. We also have Keith Zlombowitch, director of operations at Mezzaluna and a former lover of Nicole Brown Simpson... he disappeared. Another Mezzaluna employee had his car fire-bombed at around the same time.

As for the suspicious individual seen loitering outside Brown-Simpsons residence the night of the murder.

When Ippolito "escaped" from prison, he was seen being driven away in a car driven by an African-American male. Who was this Negro? A logical suspect would be an African-American male who had been a bodyguard and driver of Ippolito, as well as a friend for up to 20 years. This perfectly matches the description of Al C. Cowlings, O.J. Simpson's car chase pal, as reported in an AP August 1994 report. When Ippolito was arrested, he was with A.C.

That Simpson and Cowlings had more in common with Ippolitio than point spreads became evident with the arrest of Tracey Alice Hill, alias Amanda Armstrong, a 32 year-old stripper from Santa Monica, in February, 1995. Hill was nabbed by police in Dunsmuir, a small town in northern California, with a suitcase containing 40 pounds of coc aine. Police also found a vial of pills in her purse prescribed to Al Cowlings. Donald Re, his attorney (a former law partner of Howard Weitzman) denied any connection to Ms. Hill, but the Contra Costa Times reported that Hill’s computerized address book listed the telephone numbers of both Cowlings and Simpson (AP, 3-25-95).
(Link supplied at top)

Ippolito "escaped" from prison three weeks before the double murder.

When an FBI informant (Robert Franchi) made a panicked plea to the FBI about Ippolito's whereabouts, the Feds told him that they had "allowed Ippolito to escape," and "tracked his movements" to "learn who his contacts might be". The FBI claimed to have Ippolito on a leash and were tacing all his telephone calls. Franchi also claims that Ippolito had a "sit-down meeting" with O.J. Simpson two weeks before the murders.

We also have this information about William Wasz, a bum hired by persons unknown to track Brown-Simpson:

Dear Editor:

Enclosed in this email is a document that claims proof that there was a conspiracy to kill Nicole Brown. I'm sending you a text version of the document followed by a scanned graphics file of the actual document. My identity has to be secret because I don't want to get anyone in trouble. But I don't trust the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office to properly investigate this information. They've known about this for too long without doing anything. It's time for the truth, whatever it is, to come out.


Why would the Feds cover up a Mafia crime gang?

"Here, take a good look." He tossed it across the desk. Chuck [Giancana, brother of the Mafia's Sam Giancana] caught the coin and instantly realized it was old, ancient in fact. Chuck fingered the coin, turning it over and over again, and then tossed it back to his brother.
Mooney [Sam Giancana] leaned forward. "Look, this is one of the Roman gods. This one has two faces, two sides. That's what we are, the Outfit and the CIA... two sides of the same coin." - Sam (Jr.) and Chuck Giancana

His father, Joseph Ippolito, Sr., was in the pay of the syndicate’s Meyer Lansky, and a “soldier” of Sam “the Plumber” DeCalvacante, who brought Joey into the league. “Little Man” Lansky, of course, was no homunculus. He led the mob into an alliance with the intelligence sector of government in WW II, and loomed above much the Combination until his death in 1983.

It's interesting to note who the people were that added so much to the prosecutions case.

The man who identified the black man malingering outside Brown-Simpson's house on Gretna Green Way as O.J., was Carl Colby.

The Los Angeles Times (2-4-95) reported that Carl Colby’s testimony at the preliminary hearing was “disjointed and confused” . Colby testified that he spied (sic) a “suspicious man” outside his house one evening in 1992. It was Simpson. Colby called police “because he found it odd that a person of Simpson’s description was in the neighborhood at that hour. As he said that, a black alternate juror rolled his eyes toward the ceiling, and another alternate, also black, chuckled to herself.” The Times did not find it worth mention that Nicole happened to live next to the son of a necrotizing CIA official.

And who was Carl Colby's father?

Next door, when she lived about a mile away on Gretna Green Way, lived Carl Colby – son of William Colby, former CIA director and guiding force of the PHOENIX program, the notorious mass-murder operation in Vietnam that targeted suspected and potential Vietcong collaborators in the South.

Colby's wife also added to the frame-up by testifying that she had heard the heated arguments coming from the Brown-Simpson house.

Colby’s wife, Catherine Boe, took the stand first to testify that she’d often heard O.J. Simpson, at the time of his separation from Nicole in early ‘92, argue with her about their respective sex lives. Nicole, she said, “was upset about his womanizing.” O.J. fumed that Keith Zlombowitch, the Mezzaluna manager, had been sleeping at Nicole’s in a spare bedroom.

Repeatedly, Mrs. Colby – who asked to be addressed as “Miss Bo” (possibly to allay any association with the CIA) continued to answer the prosecution’s questions after Shapiro and Cochran raised objections.

Have you read this webpage?

Do you think there is anything to Skolnick's take on OJ's problems? Did you come across any connections like the one's he speaks of when looking into this story?

Why on Earth did you stop with the OP? This is awesome investigating you've done! Come back to it and keep freaking going!

Awesome work!

@ ipsedixit- Good addendum. Reading up.

Beelzebubba came into a thread on OJ in the Marrs forum with the Ippolito stuff and I didn't really read it thoroughly enough at the time. (Apologies B.) He's obviously done a lot of research into this stuff. I hope he'll comment on the Skolnick angle.
