A Ripple Through History...

Twenty Four Years and Counting...
Remembering the life of Nicole Brown Simpson who died on this day in 1994 at the age of 35.


Nicole was an attractive and free-spirited person, loyal to her family and friends and a devoted mother to her two children.
However in June 1994, it was revealed that Nicole had suffered many years of domestic abuse during the course of her relationship with O.J. Simpson and he was to be sensationally acquitted of her murder and that of Ronald Lyle Goldman in October 1995.


And in 1997 the jury of a civil court would eventually return the verdict that held Simpson ‘responsible’ for their deaths.
Despite the divisive issues that had surrounded the trial of Simpson, Nicole’s tragic death was to illuminate a much needed awareness about domestic abuse for in November 1994, a foundation in Nicole’s name was created by the Brown family and many women who upon learning about Nicole’s life and death were to find a renewed strength and resolve to leave their abusive partners.
