Is O.J. Simpson under investigation by the police for an alleged murder plot? Four months ago, The National Inquirer published a shocking report that claimed O.J. had allegedly tried to mastermind a plot to have the late Ron Goldman’s father and the rest of his family killed while he was behind bars. But now, a source revealed that Nevada authorities had conducted an investigation to find out if those claims were true.

Vernon Nelson shared a jail cell with the disgraced NFL star while they were both incarcerated at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada between 2015 and 2016, according to Radar Online. Vernon claimed that at one point, O.J. allegedly offered to pay him $100,000 in order to help him kill the Goldman family, and he also claimed that two Nevada Department of Corrections Inspector General’s Office investigators questioned him and also looked into O.J.’s prison calls and surveillance videos.

“They let me know they reviewed incriminating comments made on phone calls O.J. placed to an unidentified person while here at Lovelock. They said my testimony would be valuable if they file charges,” Vernon said, but a rep for the Nevada Department of Corrections Inspector General’s Office denied that an investigation had taken place.

In 1995, O.J. was famously acquitted in the murder trial for his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. But even though he was found not guilty, O.J. the Goldman family filed a civil lawsuit against him for the wrongful death the following year and in 1997, a civil jury found O.J. liable for Ron’s wrongful death and he was ordered to pay $33,500,000 in damages to the Goldman family. O.J. was allegedly upset because he had to pay up, so he offered Vernon money and promised to promote Vernon’s book if Vernon agreed to carry out the murder plot.

“I want you to help me kill the Goldmans. Those motherf–kers have been a pain in my a– since the trial,” O.J. allegedly told Vernon. “Do you know how much money I’ve lost because of them? I’m sick of it!”
