  1. Oj Simpson Tyler Kurutz

  2. “What Happened” • June 12, 1994 • One man comes through the back door of the Simpson’s home • Goes to the front to find Nicole Simpson and brutally slashing her, nearly severing her neck from her shoulders • Then struggled with and repeatedly, about 30 times, stab Ronald Goldman • Goldman was returning sunglasses

  3. “What Happened” • OJ Simpson was aboard AA flight #668 to Chicago at this point • He took off from LA at 11:45 taken to airport by limo driver Allan Park • However the Limo left the Simpson estate on Rockingham drive late (about a half hour late)

  4. At the Hotel • When Simpson arrived in Chicago he received a call from the police • When they told him about the murder of his wife, he did not ask who what how or why • Later told that he smashed glass in grief which would explain the cut on his hand

  5. Beginnings of the Trials • Robert Shapiro-Simpson’s Attorney and the arresting officer, agreed to have Simpson turn himself in by June 17 at 10 am • Didn’t show • Found what was believed to be a suicide note at his house • At 6:20 someone saw Simpson in his bronco with his friend AC Cowlings

  6. Simpson’s run ended in his own driveway • Found in AC Cowlings car: • $8,750 in cash • a false beard and mustache • a loaded gun • and a passport  • Trial is taken to Downtown district instead of Santa Barbara district where it happened (big mistake for the prosecution)

  7. Plead • “Absolutely one hundred percent not guilty, Your Honor."

  8. The Gloves • Prosecutor, Christopher Darden, called for Oj to try on the gloves in front of everyone • As he tried them on he said things like “They don’t fit. See?” • Then Simpson’s attorney Johnnie Cochran said the famous line, “If it don’t fit, you must acquit.” • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2YbY9eYmdM&feature=related • http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=jRth45yU_2Q – 4:20
