O.J. Simpson Beats Murder Rap 24 Years Ago Today

It was 24 years ago today that a jury in Los Angeles acquitted Hall Of Fame running back and actor O.J. Simpson of two counts of murder.

Simpson was on trial for the June, 1994 deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.

The woman and Goldman were found stabbed to death outside her condominium in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.

The jury in the case deliberated for just four hours before reaching its' verdict on Oct. 2, 1995.

L-A County Superior Court Judge Lance Ito postponed the verdict's announcement till the next day.

Some jurors, in post-trial interviews, said they believed Simpson was guilty but that prosecutors failed to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.
