Instead of race, Mark says the trial should have focused on the mountains of evidence he and his partner, Brad Roberts, had uncovered. That wasn't possible, Mark says, because the detective assigned by the department to be in charge of the case, Phil Vannatter, "effectively testified" that he had found the evidence, even though Mark and Brad actually had. Therefore, Mark says, Brad could not be called to the stand. "You can't have Brad finding the same things [as Vannatter]," Mark says.
Though Mark says Brad personally showed prosecutor Marcia Clark where some evidence was found at O.J.'s Rockingham estate, he was left out of the case. "Nobody interviewed Brad Roberts—nobody from robbery homicide, nobody from the prosecutor's office," Mark says. "He was never talked to after that first day."
Watch Mark speculate on what would happen if he got to face O.J.
