    <div id="GuardianArticle">A
    leak of the key chapter from the controversial book If I Did It - OJ
    Simpson's "hypothetical" account of the 1994 murder of his ex-wife
    Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman - has fuelled speculation that
    the transcript amounts to a confession.

    In the chapter Simpson
    describes in detail the events immediately before and after the murders
    on the night of June 12 1994. According to an account in Newsweek
    magazine, Simpson describes how he was infuriated by his ex-wife's
    behaviour and decided to visit her. He parked in an alleyway behind her
    apartment and, to scare her, put on the gloves and woollen hat he kept
    in his car. But as he entered through the back gate, he met Goldman, a
    waiter who was returning a pair of glasses left at a restaurant.impson, in his account, accused Goldman of having an affair with his
    ex-wife. Goldman denied the accusation, and Brown Simpson told the
    former American football star and film actor to leave her alone. But at

    his ex-wife's dog, Kato, came out and gave Goldman a friendly greeting.
    "You've been here before," Simpson screamed at Goldman.

    continues that his ex-wife came at him like a "banshee", but lost her
    balance and fell, cracking her head. Goldman then assumed a karate
    position, angering Simpson, who dared him to fight. At that point the
    narrative pauses, and Simpson writes: "Then something went horribly
    wrong. I know what happened, but I can't tell you exactly how."

    he got control of himself, he writes, he realised he was drenched in
    blood and holding a bloody knife. He describes stripping to his socks
    and rolling his bloody clothes around the knife. The police never found
    his clothes or the weapon, but they did find Simpson's bloody socks.

    attorney, Yale Galanter, told Newsweek that the manuscript did not
    amount to an admission and was not "fact or close to fact". Simpson
    concluded the chapter by repeating that he was "absolutely 100% not
