Terrance West, a running back currently with the Baltimore Ravens, was visiting the Metropole, a South Beach hotel infamous for hosting the second season of The Jersey Shore, on February 27 with a friend. The pair chatted up two women but then parted ways.

The suit claims the women then went to the hotel’s front desk and asked for a key to West’s room. Amazingly, the staffer complied. The woman were given a key and led to the room by a bellman and escort. Once inside, they swiped two Rolex watches worth almost $50,000 and made off.

An hour later he was robbed again.

He got away from them then, but not after a car crash that was allegedly intoxicating — in a bad way. Westword has the story.

After that, the feds moved in, and after an investigation that’s taken years, they’ve lowered the boom. Westword has the story.

It’s a sensational story.

A knife reportedly found at O.J. Simpson’s former Brentwood home was allegedly kept by a Los Angeles Police Department officer for years, until he recently reached out to a fellow cop to get the departmental record number on the Nicole Brown Simpson murder case so he could have it engraved on a frame for the weapon.

The LAPD today said it was testing the knife for any possible links to the 1994 stabbing murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. The case is still open and unsolved.

It seems doubtful to us that the knife was used in the murders.

O.J.-mania is once again gripping America this month thanks to The People vs. O.J. Simpson, a new FX series dramatizing the sordid trial that gripped the nation in the mid-’90s. But it was fifty years ago this year when Miami found itself in the center of one of America’s most unbelievable criminal cases — one that created its own tabloid frenzy with an equally unbelievable ending.

The case featured a beautiful woman, a young lover, and allegations of incest and murder, all to get millions of dollars of inheritance. And it all played out in downtown Miami to thousands of popping flashbulbs.

Seated in the waiting room of his empty Phoenix office, defense attorney Kirk Nurmi appears beaten and battle weary.

Since gaining notoriety defending convicted murderer Jodi Arias, Nurmi has lost 75 pounds, and his clothing drapes loosely on his deflated frame. Yet, at 6-foot-2 and still rotund, he remains an imposing figure.

Clasping both hands behind his head, Nurmi sighs as he opens up about the case that made his a household name.
