It’s been more than 20 years since O.J. Simpson was acquitted on charges of killing his ex-wife and her friend.

Now, a knife has been recovered from a Los Angeles-area estate he once owned and it’s definitely raising eyebrows.

In 1994, after Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman were found murdered, the knife used in the crime was never found.

While Los Angeles police spokeswoman Norma Eisenman said it’s not known when the knife was discovered or whether it is related to the 1994 murders, it was, in fact, found on Simpson’s former estate in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles, according to CNN.

On May 3, 1994, Simpson reportedly bought a 15-inch stiletto knife from the Ross Cutlery store and asked that it be sharpened, owner Allen Wattenberg testified at the time.

After a nearly nine-month trial that included over a hundred witnesses, tens of thousands of pages of evidence and more than a thousand exhibits, Simpson was found not guilty of their murders.

The former Buffalo Bills running back is currently in prison after being sentenced to at least 33 years in jail in October 2008 when he was found guilty on 12 counts, including kidnapping and armed robbery. The charges stemmed from Simpson’s September 2007 arrest in connection with a robbery occuring in a Las Vegas hotel room, which he entered in order to retrieve personal items that were stolen and being sold, he said at the time.

Simpson is eligible for parole 2017.
