Mystery bag raises eyebrows

LOS ANGELES - Police declined comment Tuesday on a report they want to
question lawyer Robert Kardashian, long-time friend of O.J. Simpson, about a
bag he apparently took from the defendant's mansion the morning after the
Tape aired by the news magazine show Premier Story shows Kardashian walking
away with a bag - with an American Airlines tag - moments after Simpson pulled
up following his return from Chicago on an American Airlines flight.
Footage of Kardashian didn't show a bag in his possession until the limo pulled
away. Then Kardashian headed off to the street.
Peter Brennan, the show's executive producer, said two police detectives viewed
the tape Monday and "were very, very interested in talking with Kardashian,"
Simpson has pleaded innocent to the murders of his ex-wife and a friend. Also:
-- Prosecutors could decide today whether to press charges against Al Cowlings,
Simpson's friend who drove the Ford Bronco during a freeway chase June 17.
Cowlings, free on $250,000 bail, would be arraigned Friday if charges of aiding
and abetting a fugitive are filed.
-- Detective Tom Lange took court-ordered hair samples from Simpson in jail.
He wouldn't say how many hairs were taken.
-- Superior Court Judge Lance Ito revoked longer visiting hours granted to
Simpson by Judge Kathleen Kennedy-Powell.
