Simpson Was Acquitted http://kccu.org/post/20-years-oj-simpson-trial-ripples-still-felt-los-angeles On June 12, 1994, the butchered bodies of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were found on the front walkway of Simpson's condominium in Brentwood, an upscale section of Los Angeles. Within days, Brown's ex-husband, O.J. Simpson, was considered the prime suspect in the murder of both.<p>The year that followed was legendary in its cast of characters and legal maneuvering<em>. </em><em>The N-word.
