Former Assistant Director of Investigations for the U.S.Marshals Service Arthur Roderick
Interviews the lead detective on the OJ Simpson Case
WASHINGTON, DC — The National Law Enforcement Museum at the Motorola Solutions Foundation Building is pleased to host retired Los Angeles (CA) police detective Tom Lange at CrimeCon 2019, being held at the Hilton Riverside in New Orleans, Louisiana on Friday, June 7, 2019, at 6:45 pm.
CrimeCon is a convention of more than 3,000 true-crime fans. This year’s event features authors of true-crime books, podcasters, law enforcement detectives and more.
On June 13, 1994, the bodies of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, were found stabbed to death outside Simpson’s Los Angeles home. Simpson’s estranged husband, OJ Simpson was eventually tried for murder in a case that became known as the “trial of the century.” OJ Simpson, an American football star, was eventually found not guilty of the murders in the criminal case. A jury later awarded the victim’s families more than $33 million in a civil suit.
Retired LAPD investigator Tom Lange was a lead detective in the case. In an engaging and revealing CrimeCon interview with Former Assistant Director of Investigations for the United States Marshals Service Arthur Roderick, Lange talks candidly about the Simpson case. Roderick is also known internationally as CNN’s law enforcement analyst.
“CrimeCon is a unique opportunity to expose true crime enthusiasts to the National Law Enforcement Museum,” says National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund Interim CEO Lori Sharpe Day. “It’s also fitting that the Museum’s current True Crime-True Law campaign recently launched, so visitors to the Museum will have the opportunity to hear the back stories on law enforcement heroes who brought some of the country’s most notorious criminals to justice.”
