The police found everything that they could in order to find the murderer of Nicole and Ronald. There was tons of evidence that could potentially put OJ away for life, and when he found out the cops were going to be after him, he led the slow-speed white Bronco chase that was all over television and made him look even more guilty. when he finally got home and was arrested, he went to jail where he would wait to defend himself in the trial of the century. There was a lot of evidence including the bloody glove, bloody footprints, a blood trail leading to his home, and no alibi for during the time of the murders. OJ was booked and all that was left was the trial that determined the rest of his life.
