The National Enquirer is reporting that O.J. Simpson is so desperate to end his incarceration in Nevada that he is trying to commit suicide by going on a hunger strike.
Simpson was given a 33-year prison sentence for armed robbery and kidnapping which he is currently serving at the Lovelock Correctional Center.
The suspected murderer is depressed and simply wants to “just sit down in a corner and die,” the Enquirer reported. “O.J. is done.”
The former NFL running back is eligible for parole in 2017.
“He’s dropping weight fast, and it’s scaring the hell out of his few remaining friends. He just won’t eat, and you can tell by his voice that he just wants to die. That’s exactly what is going to happen to him unless some good news drops out of the sky to cheer him up and give him a reason to live. However, that doesn’t seem likely.”
If Simpson is able to go through with the hunger strike, his four kids would inherit the money from his NFL pension.
“They ain’t ever going to let me out of here,” O.J., 66, reportedly told a friend. “I’m not going to eat, and I won’t let docs at the prison revive me in any way. I will fight it. I used to live my way, and now I’m going to die my way…My life is already over.”
Although he was found not guilty in the June 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman in a criminal trial, many people believe that Simpson is a murderer.
