07:45 AM ET 10.20 | The dagger-like knife is arguably one of the most sought-after murder weapons in American history. Now, 18 years after the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, reports have surfaced alleging that O.J. Simpson stashed the knife he used to slash their throats in the Bahamas, just a boat trip away from his former Kendall home. The first unconfirmed report, quoting unnamed sources, was published in The National Enquirer, and quickly spread from there. The Juice, reports say, purportedly wants to sell it as a $5 million souvenir of a perfect crime. "He's looking for a strictly cash deal so that the money can be deposited in offshore accounts and can't be traced directly to him," a source, identified only as someone close to the pro football Hall of Famer, told The Enquirer. The story made Ron Goldman's father's blood boil. "There has been enormous speculation over the years of where it is and what it is," David Cook, lawyer for Fred Goldman, told The Miami Herald on Thursday about the knife. "It has reached that point where we've literally gone into the macabre. ... If this story is to be believed, it is an act of pure narcissism on the part of Simpson."

T & R has now become the National Enquirer for even making a thread of this nature. It also suggest that Ron Goldman's father is a moron for even believing somethin as silly as this story. Unnamed and unidentified sources......all garbage.

You have to wonder if he had plead guilty in the beginning and claimed a crime of passion and temporary insanity and all if he would be coming up on parole now for all of it. Ironic, really. Ya can't fix stupid.

Do you know the black gloves he used in the murder were to little for him, he meant for them to be. He also meant for them to find them and they would say they are not his they are to small.

What is the Kansas City Star, once the employer of Ernest Hemingway, doing quoting stories out of the National Enquirer? Are they running stories of Elvis sightings and alien abductions too?

Why would he need to keep it a secret.He's been tried and found not guilty. He could sell the knife at on E-Bay with pictures and there's nothing they can do to him.

Maybe they're just in denial about how bad the Chiefs are this season.

"I see O.J. and he look guilty!!!"

I don't believe this story at all. I mean 5 million for a knife. If it was the one that killed Julius Cesasar, I could see that, but this is ridiculous.

He has a civil judgment against him. He'd have to turn the money over to the Goldmans.
