O.J. Simpson dies at 76 – What’s Bedford Thinking?

April 12, 2024

O.J. Simpson died on Thursday at 76 years of age. Simpson was at the center of one of the most famous murder trials in history. Simpson won the Heisman Trophy in 1968 and went on to have a Hall of Fame NFL career with the Buffalo Bills. He appeared in several movies and was a fixture as a TV pitchman.

In 1994, he was charged with the murder of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman and eventually acquitted. His trial was a must-see television event with celebrity lawyers. His defense team included Alan Dershowitz, Robert Shapiro,  F. Lee Bailey, Johnnie Cochran, Barry Scheck, and Robert Kardashian. 

The trial was filled with characters. Beyond the all-star defense team, there was the prosecutor Marcia Clark and memorable witnesses including Kato Kaelin and LA police officer Mark Fuhrman.  

Although Simpson was found innocent of the murder, he did lose a civil trial to the family of Ron Goldman and the verdict left him bankrupt.  

Although he was found not guilty, it seemed everyone reached their own verdict on the murder trial. 

In 2008, Simpson was convicted and sent to prison on another unrelated armed robbery case where he was sentenced to 33 years in prison. He was paroled in 2017.
