(Newser) – TMZ broke the story, and now it's back with the non-story: Though the LAPD has yet to comment, the gossip site says the investigation into the knife found years ago on OJ Simpson's former property is over. TMZ's sources say no usable DNA was recovered from the knife, with any DNA that may have been there apparently "degraded" by soil microbes.
