Hoping tomake one of the links that might tie O.J. Simpson to the crime scene, prosecutors will compare the hair of his dog to that of Kato -- that's Nicole Brown Simpson's canine companion, not O.J.'s pal and sometime actor/talk-show host. According to court papers released last night, Superior Court Judge Lance Ito approved the prosecution request to take hair samples from Simpson's black Akita (name: Chachi) and Nicole Simpson's white-and-tan dog. O.J's lawyers didn't object. Dark hair, allegedly from a dog, were found on a knit cap discovered at the murder scene, court papers show. And on O.J.'s estate tan dog hairs were discovered on the bloody glove behind the mansion. BTW: Both dogs are now living at Simpson's estate.Post your opinion on theCrimebulletin board.
