Goldman Says Man Offered To Kill Simpson

By Associated Press

A spectator at O.J. Simpson’s civil trial offered Fred Goldman a high-powered rifle to kill Simpson, Goldman says in an upcoming television interview.

“It was a terrifying experience,” Goldman told Barbara Walters for ABC’s “20/20” to be aired today.

Goldman said he was amazed that during the trial “a perfect stranger would come up to me and suggest that he could supply me, one, with a high-powered rifle and it was not traceable and that I could kill him.”

He said the man went on to say, “If I didn’t want to do it, he could get it done for me.”

Goldman said his reaction was “to get away from this individual as quick as I could.”

Goldman, his daughter, Kim, and wife, Patti, spoke about their anger at Simpson and their feelings of accomplishment for winning the wrongful death lawsuit against Simpson 16 months after his murder acquittal.
