Murder Victim. She and a casual friend, Ronald Goldman, were found murdered at her Brentwood condominium, just outside her front door. Ronald Goldman, a waiter at a nearby restaurant, was returning eyeglasses that she had accidentally left there at dinner that night. He is considered an accidental victim of the murderer. A tall, beautiful blonde, she became homecoming queen of her high school. She met Orenthal James (O.J.) Simpson soon after her graduation from high school, when she was 18 and he was 30 years old. He was a former professional football star and a rising movie and television actor. They married on February 2, 1985, and she soon became a mother of two children, Sydney and Justin. Citing spousal abuse, she divorced O.J. Simpson in 1992, winning a $433,000 cash settlement and $10,000 per month in child support. In a highly televised and controversial "Trial of the Century," running from December 1994 to October 1995, O.J. Simpson was acquitted of the murders after it was found that a police investigator, Detective Mark Fuhrman, had lied on the witness stand. In a later civil court case concluded in February 1997, brought by Ronald Goldman's father, O.J. Simpson was found guilty for wrongful death and ordered to pay $8.5 million dollars to the Goldman family.
