Depending on the website you visit, you will likely hear a conflicting story regarding the state of OJ Simpson after he was allegedly beaten while in jail. Earlier today, Examiner.com claimed to have a “source” that verified that OJ Simpson was beaten. Simpson is currently in the Lovelock Correctional Center, located in Las Vegas, Nevada. The story originated from ‘The National Enquirer’ and Examiner.com seemingly confirmed the news.
However, X17online.com reported soon after that they themselves called the prison and were told that the rumors of Simpson’s beating were “totally false” and that the former football star was “doing just fine”, the story continues to circulate that Simpson was indeed beaten in the jail.
Examiner.com’s “source” claims that Simpson was beaten almost to death, and that the attacker was a skinhead in the prison system. Reportedly, the prison is trying to keep the attack secret to avoid more racial tensions between Nazi groups and skinheads. Now that the story has hit the Internet, any hopes of keeping it quiet are non-existent.
Simpson, 63, was said to have suffered serious injuries, and the source went on to detail, “(Simpson) was bloody and unconscious. The attacker thought he killed him, which he intended to do.” Examiner.com did not name their “source.”
