Will the Knife Found on O.J. Simpson's Old Property Affect 'The People v. O.J. Simpson' Ending?

A retired officer recently gave authority a knife that was reportedly found by a crew worker who demolished Simpson's Brentwood mansion in 1998.

AceShowbiz - The timing couldn't be more perfect. Just when people are talking about O.J. Simpson's trial again with the airing of "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson", a possible new evidence in the 1994 case of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman's deaths was found. Retired LAPD traffic officer George Maycott recently handed over to the LAPD a knife that was reportedly buried on Simpson's old property.

The knife was allegedly found by a man who was working at Weber-Madgwick Inc., the construction company that demolished Simpson's old home in 1998. The knife is currently tested to see if it has connection to the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

With five episodes left to air in its first season, will the FX crime anthology change its ending to adjust to the new finding? Reacting to this, the show's official Twitter account posted a coy message. "We told you you didn't know the half of it... Is there really new evidence?" it read.

Courtney B. Vance who stars as one of Simpson's lawyers Jonnie Cochran also tweeted, "Guess they're gonna keep the knife in Simi Valley for 3 days, eh? @ACSFX @MrRPMurphy @JeffreyToobin #RyanMurphyWorld."

Filming on "The People v. O.J. Simpson" has finished and a source tells E! News that the show has no plans to change its ending.

Meanwhile, the Kardashians, whose patriarch Robert Kardashian was one of the lawyers who defended Simpson during the trial, were reportedly "just as shocked as everyone else about this possible new development."

According to latest reports, however, the knife found on Simpson's old property was not consistent with the Brown and Goldman murders and it doesn't appear it was buried for a length of time. Sources said the knife was a relatively inexpensive, small knife typically carried and used by construction workers, gardeners, landscapers or other laborers, but added that forensics tests must still be conducted to determine if the knife could be used as a new evidence in the case.

Mike Weber, the owner of the construction company that demolished Simpson's old home, also said that the knife was "a joke." He said, "I think it's just filler ... no one on my crew found anything." He explained, "I had instructed my people, 'If you find anything, don't keep it. Tell me, we'll take the appropriate action.' "

While waiting for more updates about the knife, you can tune into "The People v. O.J. Simpson" every Tuesday at 10 P.M. on FX.
