On June 12, 1994, Nicole and Ron were brutally slaughtered in her front yard, and while the world seemed split about who killed them, one person was positive that O.J. didn't.

F. Lee Bailey was one of the defense lawyers on the NFL star's "dream team," who got him acquitted in the highest-profile murder trial of our century.

Bailey passed away last month at the age of 87. To his grave, he avocated O.J.'s innocence in a not-yet-released tell-all, dishing out evidence the public never knew existed about the tragic night of Nicole and Ron's death.

Radar has an exclusive sneak peek inside the pages of the upcoming book, The Truth about the O.J. Simpson Trial: By the Architect of the Defense, and the never-before-released details will shock you to your core.

Possibly the most earth-shattering chapter is number five titled, Pillars of Innocence, in which Bailey reveals a witness who possibly saw the murder suspect and never got the chance to testify.

In this chapter, Bailey puts a wrench in the prosecution's claims with a detailed list of why his defense team believed O.J. could not have committed the murders.

"The evidence arising from our investigation showed four totally independent principal lines of defense," he wrote.

According to Bailey, the timeline of the night "would prove that there was no realistic opportunity for Simpson to commit the murders."

Next, the demeanor evidence, which includes the defendant's emotional response. The pit bull lawyer claims O.J.'s reaction to the tragic slaying of his ex-wife was "inconsistent with someone who could have committed the crimes."

He also points to the ex-NFL star's statement as a lack of motive, and claims it "does not incriminate him."

Detailing the defense's timeline, Bailey introduced Tom Lang, the "witness who never testified" and whose name and account of that evening was never shared with the public.

In this chapter, the high-profile lawyer gives a version of the night that critics never knew.

Lang was "one of the important defense witnesses who was prevented from testifying because of the ticking clock," writes Bailey.

Lang, who was walking his dog that night past Nicole's home -- claims he saw a man and blonde woman arguing outside.

According to Bailey, Lang told police the female was wearing dark clothing, which matches the description of what Nicole was found wearing on the night of her death.

But the defense lawyer alleges Detective Payne "falsely reported that Lang had said he'd seen a woman in a 'white, flowing dress,' thus eliminating the woman as Nicole, who was wearing a short, black halter dress when she was killed."

That is just one of the pivotal facts that were kept from the public during the trial, which Bailey says proves beyond a reasonable doubt that O.J. did not commit the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
