Actor Kato Kaelin who called OJ & Nicole Brown’s guesthouse his home in 1994. Was a witness to the murder Nicole and Ron Goldman waits 20 years to say OJ did it.
The revelation comes via Cindy Adams’ column in the NY Post:
Ask Kaelin today, this very minute, if O.J. — currently jailed in Vegas on a separate charge — killed his wife, and I repeat his exact words:“The statute of limitations has now passed . . . so I can now say . . . yes, he did it.”
Why didn’t he come forward and tell the truth? Ask why he let O.J. Simpson get away with murder, and I repeat his exact words:
“I was too scared. I was terrified.”
As TMZ points out, this disclosure is a bit “shocking,” since Kaelin is the only person who was around Simpson at the time of the murders:
Kato went to McDonald’s with OJ … came back to the house … and was in OJ’s guest house on Rockingham when OJ allegedly hit the air conditioner in an attempt to hide the bloo** glove on that fateful night.
However, at the time of the trial, Kaelin was more known for bringing (unintentional) levity to the case, thanks to his bumbling nature and his blond surfer guy ‘tude. Back then, no one knew if they should or could take him seriously.
Since the trial, Kaelin says he has been reviled: “People hated me. I’ve been spat upon. They threw gum in my coffee.” Now he plans to launch a website to interact with the public and is contemplating penning a book.
