Winnipeg, April 11, 2024 - O.J. Simpson died in Las Vegas on Wednesday at the age of 76 after a battle with cancer, according to his family.

 

The family posted the news of Simpson's death on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Simpson, a former NFL great, made international headlines as he stood trial for the double murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, in the '90s. Simpson was acquitted of those charges. Later, in 2007, O.J. would be charged and found guilty of an armed robbery in Las Vegas, spending several years in prison.

 

Before those chapters of his life, Simpson was a beloved all-American hero on the field, a Heisman winner from USC and a Buffalo Bills legend. He also starred in several movies.
