Me and My Shadow!

On Sunday June 12 1994 Nicole Brown Simpson became a public figure overnight for on that balmy Sunday evening she was senselessly and brutally murdered in the grounds of her home at 875 South Bundy Drive in the leafy suburb of Brentwood in California.

By the time she married him seven years later at the age of 25, it seemed there had never been a time when the larger-than-life celebrity had not dominated her existence.

Wow! What a Lucky Couple!

Even in a city that saw 421 murders last year, these were startling.

The young man was found lying in the bushes.

Nearby was the body of a statuesque blonde woman, her beautiful face bruised and abraded. Continue reading Wow! What a Lucky Couple!
