Crime and their Victims
Nicole Brown Simpson was the ex-wife of former professional football player and occasional actor O. J. Simpson, to whom she was married from 1985 to 1992, and the mother of their two children, Sydney and Justin. She was killed in front of her condo in Los Angeles, California, on June 12, 1994, along with her friend, restaurant waiter Ron Goldman. Simpson, who had a legal history of physically abusing, stalking and making death threats toward Brown, was arrested and charged with both killings. Despite a controversial and highly publicized criminal trial with both circumstantial and physical evidence that linked Simpson to the killings, Simpson was acquitted of all charges, though he was later found liable for both deaths in a civil lawsuit in 1997.

To give you the idea of the brutality of the crime that O.J. Simpson was found “not guilty” of, the autopsy determined that Brown had been stabbed seven times in the neck and scalp, and had a 14 cm-long (5.5 inches) gash across her throat, which had severed both her left and right carotid arteries and breached her right and left jugular veins. The wound on Brown’s neck was so severe it had penetrated a depth of 1.9 cm (0.75 inches) into her cervical vertebrae, nearly decapitating her. She also had defensive wounds on her hands.

It’s hard to believe, but though Denise Brown continued to assert that Simpson murdered Nicole, Lou and Juditha Brown both expressed their support for Simpson and their relief that he would be reunited with his children.

Grave Location Description

When you enter the gate the road will curve to the right. Almost at the end, look on the left for “80”, and park there. Every grave going downhill is grave 80. The 15th row down is George Burns (but not THAT George Burns). Turn left, and count 17 markers. The graves are very well marked.
