    It was 13 years ago today (June 12, 1994): Nicole Brown Simpson and her male friend Ronald Goldman are savagely murdered in front of O.J Simpson's condominium complex in Brentwood, Calif.

    Of course, O.J. is innocent...

    Actually, they were killed in fronmt of Nicole Brown Simpson's condo in Brentwood... but don't the facts get in the way.
    After all, the jury didn't.
  3. I had just finished 7th grade when the murders happened, and the trial went well into my freshman year of high school. That was probably the oddest 16-17 months of news ever.

    Junkie: Damn, you! LOL Fixed... thanks.
  6. with DNA evidence as mainstream as it is today, would that case even go to trial? I guess in LA it's worth a shot, but i can't imagine OJ would have gotten off

    Something I've always wondered: If O.J. didn't do it, then who would have? I mean, was there even public speculation about that?

    Of course, O.J. did it...I'm just saying...

    Good point. It was still so new then, I think there was a general mistrust of the technology. Add into that Henry Fung's mishandling of the evidence and his subsequent dismantling on the stand, the broken chain of evidence after it was collected, Darden letting OJ try on the glove and the Fuhrman fiasco and I understand why the jurors felt there was reasonable doubt.

    Today, with all we know about DNA evidence now, this wouldn't even be close.

    I just remember watching the verdict read in a class in high school and everyone cheering and I just didn't understand why they were cheering. A very messed up situation. Of course, it made for a lot of TV watching during class for a couple of months.
