Around midnight on June 12/13, 1994, the dead bodies of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Lyle Goldman were discovered near the front steps of her residence, 875 South Bundy Drive, in Brentwood, California, an up-scale Los Angeles neighborhood. As indicated by autopsies, someone had stabbed or cut her seven times and him 30 times. Her ex-husband, O. J. Simpson, often called “Juice,” was subsequently tried for the two homicides. On October 3, 1995, some sixteen months after the preliminary proceedings commenced, the jury returned a notguilty verdict after discussing the case for less than three hours, thereby ending the most publicized and debated trial in American history.
