O.J. Simpson Dead at 76 After Battle with Cancer

O.J. Simpson, the Hall of Fame football player whose life took a dramatic turn after his 1994 murder trial, has died at the age of 76. Simpson’s family confirmed that he passed away on Wednesday after a battle with cancer.

Simpson was a beloved sports figure before his arrest and subsequent trial for the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. The televised trial captivated the nation, exposing racial tensions and sparking intense debate about celebrity justice.

Simpson was acquitted by a jury, but the verdict remained controversial. He later faced civil lawsuits related to the deaths and ultimately was found liable.

In his later years, Simpson maintained a relatively low profile. His death is sure to rekindle discussions about his life and legacy, both on the football field and in the courtroom.

Someone posted from his X:

“On April 10th, our father, Orenthal James Simpson, succumbed to his battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren. During this time of transition, his family asks that you please respect their wishes for privacy and grace. -The Simpson Family”
