According to the L.A. Times, the Los Angeles Police confirmed this on Friday saying they had done a variety of forensic tests on the knife before making their final conclusion.

Sources told the paper earlier this month that a preliminary review suggested the weapon appeared to not be connected to the death of Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.

Simpson was tried on murder charges but was acquitted back in 1995.  The murder weapon has never been found.

There was already skepticism over the knife found on the property. Los Angeles Police said they believed the knife is one that is common among gardeners and was too small to cause the wounds found on Simpson and Goldman.

A construction worker reportedly found the knife years ago and turned it in to an officer working in the traffic division at the time, the L.A.P.D said.

The officer reportedly took the knife and kept it for years until late January of this year when he turned it in to police.
