Nicole Brown Simpson’s Sisters Find Hope 30 Years After Her Murder

0:00

A new docuseries centering on Nicole Brown Simpson, produced by her sisters, will showcase how her tragic murder has led to support for others grappling with domestic violence.

Brown Simpson’s sisters, Dominique, Tanya, and Denise Brown, appeared on ABC’s The View on Friday to discuss the release of their docuseries, The Life and Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson. This two-part documentary airs on Lifetime this Saturday and Sunday, just two weeks prior to the anniversary of Brown Simpson’s death. The sisters aim to reshape the public’s perception of Brown Simpson.

“You know what, the best thing about all of this is, and I mean, I’m sorry it had to take my sister, or our sister to make these changes, is that diaries are admissible in court now. The Violence Against Women Act was passed,” Denise Brown stated. “And the 24-hour domestic violence hotline.”

In 1994, Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were found brutally murdered at Brown Simpson’s residence. Each had endured multiple knife wounds. Her estranged husband, former NFL player O.J. Simpson, was charged with their murders but later acquitted. The Goldmans won a wrongful death lawsuit against him in civil court in 1997. A predominantly white jury, contrasting with the majority-black jury of the 1995 trial, ordered Simpson to pay $33.5 million in damages to the Goldmans.

“I think people remember Nicole as a body at the bottom of a staircase covered by a white bloody sheet and a battered woman and the wife of [O.J.] Simpson,” Tanya Brown remarked. “And Nicole was a daughter, a sister, a really good wife, and a really good mom, and she was a human being who walked this Earth and she was wonderful.”

O.J. Simpson passed away in April due to complications from cancer. He shared two children with Brown Simpson.

Dominique Brown expressed being “devastated” by the news of Simpson’s death, despite being aware that he had physically abused Brown Simpson during their marriage, long before her murder. She mournfully noted that her sister and Simpson’s children had lost both their parents.
