The Trial of O. J. Simpson
“The O. J. Trial”
I. The Facts
The following information took place on June 12, 1994 and all times are in U. S.
Pacific Time. At 6:30 P. M., Nicole Brown Simpson, her children, and friends go to get
supper at Mezzaluna, a restaurant. At 8:00, they proceed to stop for ice cream on the way
home. At 9:15, one of Nicole’s sisters calls Mezzaluna to inform them that Nicole left her
glasses at the restaurant, and Ronald Goldman volunteers to return the glasses.
9:00 and 9:30, O. J. Simpson and his friend Brian Kaelin go to McDonald’s for some
“Big Macs.” They return back to Simpson’s home at 9:45. Between 9:48 and 9:50,
Goldman leaves Mezzaluna with a white envelope containing the glasses. At 10:15, Pablo
Fenives, a neighbor of Nicole Brown Simpson, hears cries and constant barking from a
dog. A limousine driver named Allan Park arrives at the Simpson household at 10:25.
Kaelin hears three loud thumping sounds on one of the walls inside his guest room. At
approximately 10:45, Park buzzes the intercom several times but doesn’t get any
response. Park proceeds to call his boss, who manages the limousine service that is
responsible for Simpson, and let him know that O. J. is not home. His boss informs him
to wait until 11:15 for Simpson because O. J. is often late. A few minutes before 11:00,
Park sees a black male, who is about 6 feet tall and 200 pounds, walking across the
driveway towards the Simpson household. At 11:00, Kaelin goes to the front of the house
to check what the noise is. He sees the limousine driver, Park, near the gate. Then, Park
buzzes the intercom again, but this time Simpson answers, claiming he overslept and just
got out of the shower.
Simpson proceeds to put his bags in the limousine soon after
