OJ is killer in son's murder mystery story

OJ Simpson's eight-year-old son wrote a fictional murder mystery for a school assignment that ended with his father being the killer, a television station reported.

The story, which featured a killer holding a hostage with a knife and machine-gun, was written by Justin Simpson in autumn and was used as evidence in the battle between Mr Simpson and his former in-laws for custody of Justin and his 11-year-old sister, Sydney, KCBS-TV reported. Mr Simpson was awarded full custody of his two younger children on Friday. They had been living with their maternal grandparents since their mother, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman, were killed in June 1994.

Mr Simpson was acquitted in October 1995 of double murder in the deaths of Goldman and Simpson. He is now being sued for wrongful death by the estate of Simpson and the Goldman family.
