Orenthal James "O. J." Simpson (born July 9, 1947), also known by his nickname, The Juice, is a retired American football player, actor, spokesman and broadcaster, who earned infamy for having been tried and acquitted for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1994. In 2008, Simpson was convicted for armed robbery pertaining to an incident in Las Vegas. He was paroled in October 2017.

O.J. Simpson in "Before the Beginning"

The time-viewer revealed the truth about whether O.J. Simpson was truly guilty or not of the murders of his ex-wife and her friend. The revelation surprised no one.

Literary comment

The story doesn't say what "the truth" is, presumably for legal reasons.
