O.J. Simpson, NFL star and actor accused of killing his ex-wife, died of cancer on April 10. He was 76 years old. Simpson had a Hall of Fame career as a running back for the Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers and early on made a name in TV in commercials for Hertz rental cars. He later branched out to movies – including “The Towering Inferno,” the “Naked Gun” trilogy, and “Back to the Beach” – but will probably be best known for being acquitted of the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown-Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994. The trial helped put cable channel Court TV (now truTV) on the map and set the standard for gavel-to-gavel coverage of sensational litigation.
