O.J. Simpson a suspect in Las Vegas hotel room robbery

Investigators questioned O.J. Simpson and named him a suspect Friday a break-in at a casino hotel room involving sports memorabilia.

The break-in was reported at the Palace Station casino late Thursday night, police spokesman Jose Montoya said. He said investigators determined the break-in involved sports collectibles.

"When they talked to him, Simpson made the comment that he believed the memorabilia was his," Montoya said. "We're getting conflicting stories from the two sides."

Simpson was released after he and several associates were questioned, but he is considered a suspect in the case, Montoya said. He is believed to be in Las Vegas.

"We don't believe he's going anywhere," he said.

The Heisman Trophy winner, ex-NFL star and actor lives near Miami and has been a tabloid staple since his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman were killed in 1994. Simpson was acquitted of murder charges, but a jury later held him liable for the killings in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Simpson has had to auction off his sports collectibles, including his Heisman Trophy, to pay some of the $33.5 million judgment awarded to the Goldman family.

On Thursday, the Goldman family published a book about the killings that Simpson had written under the title, "If I Did It." After a deal for Simpson to publish it fell through, the family bought the rights and retitled the book "If I Did It: The Confessions of a Killer."

Investigators in the casino case planned to give their report to prosecutors Friday, Montoya said. The district attorney's office will decide whether to pursue charges.

Simpson had been scheduled to give a deposition Friday in Miami in a bankruptcy case involving his eldest daughter. But it was rescheduled because Simpson had told attorneys that he would be out of town.

A Simpson attorney in Florida, Yale L. Galanter, did not immediately return phone messages seeking comment.

The Palace Station, an aging property just west of the Las Vegas Strip, is one of several Station Casinos-owned resorts that cater to locals. The 1,000-room hotel-casino, with a 21-story tower and adjacent buildings, opened in 1976.

A company spokeswoman did not immediately return a call for comment.

Unfortunately O.J. is being held without bail, thus depriving the public the pleasure of finding out what type of vehicle Al Cowlings is currently driving. Replacing 'If The Glove Does Not Fit, You Must Acquit' for this trial will be 'If O.J. Is Feeling Dread, Johnnie Cochrane Must Still Be Dead'.

I was in Vegas all weekend and everyone where I was had been talking about it. If I knew he would have been in Vegas too, I would have gone to try to meet him and heckle him.

Who the hell gets married and makes OJ freakin' Simpson a part of their wedding party????

I'm surprised to hear OJ has friends and even a girlfriend.
Are these people just clueless and have no idea about his past?
What woman watches the trial, hears the 911 tapes and thinks, "Oh yeah, that's boyfriend material" ??

There's an audio recording of the whole incident which is funny and sad. OJ really thinks he can do what ever he wants and nothing is gonna happen to him.

They just released his ass, by the way, on $125,000 bail, and his attorney was saying he (OJ) plans on going back home to Florida. How's that gonna work? Isn't he supposed to stay in town because of the whole kidnapping, robbery with a deadly weapon, burglary with a deadly weapon, coercion with a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit kidnapping and robbery charges all against him?

You know his ass is running to another country as soon as he gets the chance cause I think any jury that's faced with the option is gonna throw his ass in prison for as long as possible and these charges is exactly what gives them the reason to do it. The kidnapping charge alone is worth life in prison.

He was told he can travel around the US, but he let the court know where he is at all times. His passport was taken away, so he's probably not leaving the country.

Does anyone really think he thinks anything will happen to him? After all her bludgeoned two people to death and walked. So why would he leave the country or go underground.

The real killers aren't just going to catch themselves. O.J. needs to be free to get back on the case.

As for dwaters questions, haven't we all seen enough talk show episodes of women in love with guys on death row to know that if there's a really bad idea to be had regarding romance that someone will latch right onto it?

Yeah. I have to say I really don't see the logic in what Edwards did. Either stick around another week and see what happens (picking up a few more delegates that might get you some leverage for an AG nomination)
