O.J. Simpson: Fact or Fiction?
Episode Two: The Three Thumps
The second episode of O.J. Simpson: Fact or Fiction, a weekly episodic series of mini-documentaries which shines a light on widespread misconceptions of various aspects of the O.J. Simpson saga, focuses on the infamous three thumps that Kato Kaelin heard on the night of June 12, 1994.
Episode two specifically examines the validity of two claims made by prosecutor Marcia Clark during her closing argument in California v. Simpson: Kato Kaelin heard the three thumps at 10:52PM on June 12, 1994 and the area behind Mr. Kaelin’s bungalow is a “narrow, little pathway.” Both of these claims by Clark have been propagated as fact ever since.
One of the most misunderstood aspects of the events that are alleged to have occurred at 360 N. Rockingham Avenue is the layout of O.J. Simpson’s estate – where people and things were located, what they would have seen and heard from those locations and the distances between the various locations. Episode two allows the viewer to fully understand important aspects of O.J. Simpson’s estate including the back pathway where Detective Mark Fuhrman “found” the infamous bloody glove.
Furthermore, the visual tour of the back pathway area will allow the viewer to judge for themselves the viability of the prosecution’s theory that after the murders the killer(s) was running down that back pathway, presumably to enter Mr. Simpson’s home through the back door, but was obstructed by the air conditioner unit in the window of Kato Kaelin’s bungalow and, with no other options, the killer(s) were forced to turn around and enter Mr. Simpson’s home through the front door.
We hope you enjoy episode two of O.J. Simpson: Fact or Fiction?
