Nicole Simpson

Nicole Brown Simpson (May 19, 1959 – June 12, 1994) was the ex-wife of American football player O. J. Simpson. Found murdered at her home in Los Angeles, California, along with her friend Ronald Goldman, her death led to one of the most controversial criminal trials in US history.

The daughter of Juditha and Louis Brown, Nicole (like her older sister Denise) was born in Germany, but the family moved to Dana Point, California, where she grew up, along with younger sisters Dominque and Tanya. Attractive and outgoing, Nicole was elected Homecoming Queen at Dana Hills High School. Shortly after graduating high school, she met her future husband while she was working as a waitress at a night club.

Nicole was married to O. J. Simpson on February 2, 1985. They had two children together, Sydney Brooke Simpson (born October 17, 1985) and Justin Ryan Simpson (born August 6, 1988). The marriage lasted seven years, ending when Nicole divorced him in 1992, citing an "abusive relationship".

On the morning of June 12, 1994, neighbors, alerted by a barking dog, found the badly mutilated bodies of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman in the enclosed front courtyard of her home. Both had been brutally hacked and stabbed multiple times, with Nicole's head nearly severed. At the time of the murders, the children Sydney, then aged 8, and Justin, 5, were asleep inside the condo on South Bundy Drive.

After Nicole's death, her ex-husband O. J. was arrested and charged with murder; he was subsequently acquitted of the crime in what became one of the most controversial and widely-discussed trials in American history. (However, in a subsequent civil trial, he was found financially liable for their deaths and ordered to pay US$25 million to the families of Brown and Goldman.) For more on the trial, see O. J. Simpson - Death of his ex-wife and trial.

In 1994, her sister Denise Brown established The Nicole Brown Charitable Foundation in Nicole's memory, to assist victims of domestic violence.
