    Ron Goldman's dad says OJ Simpson's death is simply a "further reminder of the loss of my son"

    Fred Goldman was left broken when his boy was found stabbed to death 20 days before his 26th birthday alongside Simpson's ex-wife Nicole Brown, 35, on the night of June 13, 1994, outside Nicole's Los Angeles home - with the blonde knifed so fiercely in the neck her head was almost decapitated


    He told DailyMail.com in the wake of Simpson's death aged 76 from cancer on Wednesday (10.04.24): "The only thing that I have to say today is that this is a further reminder of the loss of my son Ron.

    "It is a further reminder of my son's murder and a reminder about the many years we have missed Ron.

    "His death is a reminder that Ron and Nicole were murdered by him. I am not going react to my thoughts about him dying."

    Simpson was arrested and charged with the murders of Nicole and Ron - kicking off the trial of the century, before the former NFL player was found liable in civil court for their deaths.

    Fred concluded in his brief chat with the Mail Online: "I have nothing to say about him. My response will not be about OJ's death but about he loss of my son's life by him.

    "Thank you for calling. That is the only thing that I have to say."

    Simpson was acquitted after his 1995 murder trial amid tinderbox racial tensions and a sensational moment where his defence lawyer Johnnie Cochrane coined the phrase: "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit," after Simpson's hand appeared not to fit into the blood-stained glove found on his property the day he was arrested on suspicion of butchering Nicole and Ron.

    Simpson was represented by a defence team dubbed the 'Dream Team' as it included high-priced lawyers Robert Shapiro, Robert Kardashian and Alan Dershowitz alongside Johnnie Cochran.

    They argued DNA evidence in the case wasn't properly handled by laboratory technicians and claimed the Los Angeles Police Department tainted the investigation.

    After less than four hours of deliberation, a jury found Simpson not guilty of two counts of murder - but he was found liable for the deaths in a civil case brought by Nicole and Goldman's families in 1997 and ordered to pay them $33.5million in damages.
