Phillip Vannatter entered the Los Angeles Police Department in 1969 after serving on the United States Army Peacekeeping force in Korea.  In 27 years with the LAPD he investigated more than 250 homicides, and became a court expert in highly sensitive officer-involved shootings and homicides.  Throughout his career, he received more than 60 commendations from law enforcement and over 200 from civilians.  He retired in 1996. Phillip Vannatter is the author of Evidence Dismissed, The Inside Story of the Police Investigation of O.J. Simpson.

Amazon.com review said of Evidence Dismissed, The Inside Story of the Police Investigation of O.J. Simpson, it “is one of those as-told-to books, the tellers being Detective Tom Lange and Detective Philip Vannatter, who led the investigation into the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Here, free from the constraints of courtroom procedure, cross-examination, and public relations spin, they present their side of the story, including much evidence that never saw its day in court.  Detectives Lange and Vannatter took a lot of flak during the first Simpson trial and in the barrage of books that followed. In Evidence Dismissed they have their revenge by pointing out errors in the prosecution's case and getting in a few digs at the defense attorneys. As told to Dan E. Moldea, a veteran crime reporter, this latest insider story sheds some new light on the behind-the-scenes activity surrounding the most recent Trial of the Century.”
