February 22, 2019
O. J. Simpson, who was famously acquitted of the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman, but found guilty in a civil trial, was spotted in Vail yesterday. A handful of locals managed to snag pictures with Simpson in Lionshead Village.
Simpson was also spotted at Bridge Street Bar, mingling with locals as the band played Scott Munn’s edited version of Richie Valens’ “La Bamba,” called “Big F**king Bronco.”
The final photo that the Vail Daily has been able to obtain is a selfie captured with Simpson.
Simpson, who won the Heisman Trophy at the University of Southern California, and is an inductee into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, is most known for being the primary suspect in the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson. The trial took place over 134 days between 1994 and 1995. Simpson was found not guilty. In 2008, Simpson was found guilty of robbery of sports memorabilia from a Las Vegas hotel room and was sentenced to 33 years in prison. Simpson was released on parole in October of 2017.
