4:02 pm
has been talking with police all day. but you also heard from the victim's family. what have they told you? >> reporter: well, we were standing right here on the corner where there's a memorial set up for one of those victims. this is where one of those men were found that night. a family friend just drove by, saw us here and directed us down the street to where the mother of frank freeman lives, she told us she still doesn't know what happened to her son. >> i'm not angry. i'm just hurt. >> matt: mary freeman lost her son last month but tells us she's still searching for answers about what happened that night. >> she didn't tell us anything that night when it happened. they just wanted to know was -- who was there. >> reporter: on february 17th, winter park police surrounded the home on comstock avenue. 46-year-old frank freeman and 24-year-old jordan ingram were found dead near the home. after an overnight investigation

former home of o.j. simpson. >> ginger: incredibly police say they were told it was found during the demolition of the home. it ended up with a police officer that is now retired? >> julie: the knife came to the attention of the police. this is important because simpson was acquitted in the stabbing death of his ex-wife and her friend and the weapon used in the killings was never found. this is video of the rockingham estate in los angeles being demolished. a retired officer working in the area at the time and says a person claiming to be a construction worker gave him the knife, saying it was found on the property. he held on to it until recently when police discovered it happened. police say it should not affect simpson's infamous 1994 acquittal. >> my understanding -- i'm not an attorney -- but my understanding from being a police officer for 30 years, double jeopardy would be in place here. we could not charge mr. simpson with the homicides he's already
4:05 pm
already been acquitted. >> julie: police say they're submitting their knife to the lab but need to first determine if it's evidence and say if it is, they'll need to figure out how to prove it. simpson was acquitted in the stabbings of his ex-wife, nicole brown simpson, and her friend, ronald goldman, another jury found him liable civilly for the deaths deaths. >> lisa: spacex hopes to blast the falcon9 rocket into orbit, but will weather let the fifth attempt be a charm? chief meteorologist tom sorrells is pinpointing the winds along the coast tonight. >> tom: i think we're going to have a go as far as the weather is concerned at this time. right now on radar, we're clear. temperature readings are good. we're at 70 in sanford. 77 in orlando. out at the cape, 67. it's the wind at the surface that has your attention.
