Maine radio personalities honor Tom Petty

I’ll miss hearing a new Tom Petty song for the first time and having the realization that I’m hearing a song destined for immortality. If only the songwriter could live forever.

Andy Caldwell of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Dept. was the lead detective in the September 2007 robbery of the Palace Station hotel-casino involving former NFL legend O.J. Simpson.

Simpson and a group of men were subsequently charged with criminal conspiracy, kidnapping, assault, robbery and use of a deadly weapon.

Caldwell’s new book, “ROOM 1203 – O.J. Simpson’s Las Vegas Conviction,” reveals new details about the robbery that locked Simpson away for nine years – details that have been incorporated into a two-hour A&E documentary called “O.J.: Guilty in Vegas.”

Simpson was granted parole in July 2017 and is expected to be released from Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada in October.

Caldwell checked in with The Maine Edge last week to talk about the case, his book and the new documentary.
