OJ Simpson Dies from Cancer, Documentary “How O.J. Changed my Life” Releases

Former football star O.J. Simpson, infamous for his arrest in connection with the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, died of cancer at the age of 76 on April 10th.

Simpson was arrested for the murder of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson whom he was married to from 1985-1992, and her friend, Ron Goldman, after widely televised police pursuit.

Branimir Kvartuc, a 22-year old photography student and Croatian immigrant, was able to capture one of the most iconic moments in the chase on June 17th, 1994 on a freeway overpass on the 405 freeway.

Simpson was in the back of his friend Al Cowling’s white Ford Bronco with a gun to his head, leading a parade of police cars on the 90 minute chase that started at Disneyland in Orange County.

In commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the event this year, Kvartuc unveils a compelling seven-minute documentary short, available for viewing on YouTube.

The short film chronicles Kvartuc’s journey from an aspiring immigrant kid to a celebrated figure in the realms of photojournalism, politics, and public relations. “I was just an immigrant kid trying to make my way in Los Angeles, when O.J. Simpson changed my life,” reflects Kvartuc, encapsulating the transformative impact of that pivotal moment.

Ron Goldman’s sister and father, Kim and Fred Goldman, released a statement on Instagram:

“The news of Ron’s killer passing away is a mixed bag of complicated emotions and reminds us that the journey through grief is not linear.”

The Goldmans vowed they will “continue to advocate for the rights of all victims and survivors, ensuring our voices are heard both within and beyond the courtroom.”

“And despite his death, the mission continues; there’s always more to be done,” they wrote. “Thank you for keeping our family, and most importantly Ron, in your hearts for the last 30 years.”

“For three decades we tirelessly pursued justice for Ron and Nicole, and despite a civil judgment and his confession in ‘If I Did It,’ the hope for true accountability has ended,” the Goldmans said.

Simpson was acquitted of the murders of Brown and Goldman, which took place outside Brown-Simpson’s condo in Brentwood on June 12th, 1994, however, lost a civil suit for wrongful death.

The Goldmans were awarded $31 million and are seeking the collect on Simpson’s estate.
