The Tragic death of Nicole Brown
On the 12th of June, 1994 Nicole Brown and her male friend Ronald Goldman were brutally murdered. They were found dead outside Nicole’s house in LA. Both of them had multiple stab wounds.
O.J. Simpson was charged for the murder after a couple of days. Investigators found a blood-stained glove on OJ’s property so, they arrested him. The court demanded to turn himself in but he tried to escape. This led to a car chase and it became one of the biggest highlights of the 90s. The murder was so high profile and OJ Simpson and the 90s became synonymous.
O.J was a pretty rich person so, he used that to his advantage and hired a defense team that had some of the best lawyers in the country. While everyone believed him to be the main culprit, there was no substantial evidence to jail him so, he was acquitted from the case on November 9th in 1994.
Raised by his grandmother
OJ and Nicole had already divorced each other before Nicole’s murder. Nicole was the one to file for divorce and they shared the joint custody of their children after the divorce.
After Nicole’s death, the custody went to her family and it was Nicole’s sister Tanya and mother Judith who decided to take care of her children. The kids were the ones that suffered the most because of this tragedy.
In an interview, Justin’s maternal aunt Tanya said that it was difficult for them to move on after the death of their mother. In addition to that, the whole family believed that it was OJ who was the murderer. So, they said it felt uncomfortable for them to take Nicole’s children and drop them off at OJ’s house.
But the two siblings grew up fine in a stable environment. They have not discussed their mother’s death yet.
