O.J. Simpson, her ex-husband, was acquitted Oct. 3, 1995, of their deaths in a trial that riveted the nation and divided many along racial lines.
In 1997, he was ordered to pay more than $33 milllion for their wrongful deaths. He is now serving a prison sentence in Nevada for kidnapping, robbery, burglary, assault with a deadly weapon and other charges for trying to obtain memorabilia he claims belonged to him.
On March 4, 2016, it was reported that Los Angeles police are investigating and testing a knife that was recovered on property once owned by O.J. Simpson and turned over to a police officer a number of years ago by a person working construction there.
Bringing one of history's most riveting courtroom dramas to a stunning climax, O.J. Simpson was acquitted of two counts of murder Tuesday, verdicts that set the football Hall of Famer free 474 days after he was arrested and charged with a brutal double homicide.
From the beginning of the murder investigation, O.J. Simpson denied any role in the slaying of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman.
