There is always a yin and yang to things. Someone I know who has access to defense information told me in the corridor during a break that the defense really believes it’s going to win this case. “They think the autopsy photographs are going to work in their favor,” this person said.
“They’re going to bring in expert witnesses who are going to say that this could only be the work of a professional killer from a Colombian drug cartel, not a man like O.J. Simpson.”
Faye Resnick has been subpoenaed by the defense and, like Kato Kaelin, will surely be declared a hostile witness. She has been told to appear on July 3, which happens to be her birthday, and she is very nervous at the prospect. Evidently the defense is going to try to fit her right into the Colombian-drug-cartel scenario.
The defense indicated early in the proceedings that the Colombians were after her, not Nicole.
What surprises one about Faye Resnick is how bright she is. And fearless. I don’t think she’s going to be the pushover the defense is expecting. She knows a lot about O.J. and drugs. She told me that she had taken drugs with him. She’d think nothing of spilling the beans on the stand if the defense got rough with her.
She knows full well that Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman weren’t murdered by a Colombian drug cartel who thought they were killing her because she owed them money. I’ve seen Resnick roar with laughter at that idea.
