O.J. SIMPSON PASSES AWAY FROM CANCER AT AGE 76

Former NFL running back O.J. Simpson has passed away from cancer. He was 76.

His bout with cancer was mostly kept from the public.

Simpson was widely regarded as one of the best running backs of all time, but his fame was eclipsed by the double murder trial of his ex-wife and her friend.

He became embroiled in a murder trial following a June 1994 arrest in connection with the brutal slayings of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman.

Simpson was 46 years old at the time.

That murder case, dubbed “The Trial of the Century,” received international press attention and was recently dramatized in the popular TV show, “The People v. O.J. Simpson.” It was also examined in the 2016 documentary, “OJ: Made in America.”

The case’s enormous popularity stemmed from Simpson’s fame and whether he was innocent — or whether he was guilty and he got away with it.

The trial ended on October 3, 1995, when he was acquitted in the 1994 murders.

After Simpson was found not guilty, the Goldman and Brown families sued Simpson in civil court, alleging wrongful death.

The civil trial began in October 1996 and Simpson was later found to be responsible for the deaths.
