(CNN) Police are examining what's been described as a knife said to have been found at the Los Angeles-area estate once owned by former football star O.J. Simpson, Los Angeles police Capt. Andy Neiman said Friday.
Police learned within the last month that a former Los Angeles police officer received the item from a construction worker who found it "back in the '90s," possibly when Simpson's former estate in Brentwood was being demolished, according to Neiman. It is being examined for forensics — including DNA and hairs — at a lab, he said.
