Market Place; Classifieds · Cars · Homes · Jobs · Local Directory · Legal. The O.J. Simpson murder trial — or the "Trial of the Century" — captivated the country for nearly a year (and still does), and much of played out. OJ Simpson 'confesses' to murdering Nicole Brown, saying he stabbed her to death after Ron Goldman tried to fight him when he went to.
He had moved from Chicago in and quickly became enamored of the California lifestyle, becoming an avid surfer, volleyball player and nightclub hopper. At one point, Goldman appeared on the Fox television dating show "Studs. There really isn't a scale for me. After work on weekends, the two would hit one club after another, from the Sagebrush Cantina in Calabasas to the Westside or even Orange County, winding up early Monday morning with breakfast.
Even so, Goldman did not drink or take drugs and stuck religiously to a low-fat diet, friends said. Clark said that when Goldman moved to Brentwood 18 months ago he cut back on socializing but still spent weekend nights on the town, often getting in for free because he knew the clubs' owners.
Goldman recently promoted a nightclub party himself, inviting the guests to a hot Century City club called Tripp's. Clark said that Goldman told him it was Nicole Simpson's car, but that he did not say she was his girlfriend.
Goldman's relationship with Simpson was platonic, said Jodi Kahn, a friend of his who also was acquainted with Nicole Simpson.

Although Goldman seemed to thrive socially, he also was struggling to find himself, family members said.
He had lots of dreams, according to friends, but few of them panned out. He had completed a year of college in Chicago before moving to California and took some classes here, but he did not get a degree.
A neighbor who lived nearby on Gorham Avenue in Brentwood said Goldman was struggling to make the rent until he got a new job this year as a waiter at Mezzaluna, an upscale restaurant. He had been working as a waiter at the Cheesecake Factory when he was sought out to pose for an advertisement, according to Kim Goldman, his sister, a year-old student at San Francisco State University.
That inspired him to pursue a career in the fashion business, and he put together a modeling video. Justice has arrived in Miami.
He had escaped our reach for nearly 11 years, but not this time. Instead it is credited to "the Goldman family". The title, If I Did It, appears on the dustjacket, but the "If" is printed in grey and is barely legible while the words "I Did It" are printed in lurid pink. It is not the first time that the Goldman family have published a book about Ron's murder: Our Search for Justice. There is now a little library of books about the two murders that have long intrigued Americans: What do the Goldmans hope to get from publishing the book?
The Goldmans say they will not benefit financially from the book. Bizarrely, however, OJ will. Ron deserved justice and he deserved to live," says Fred. Simpson speaks of having been visited at home on June by an acquaintance called Charlie who tells him that his ex-wife and her friend had been "partying". Charlie, whom he had met a few weeks earlier "at dinner with some friends", came along for the ride.
Outside Nicole's house, Simpson met Ron Goldman, who told Simpson he had visited Nicole's house to return a pair of her mother's glasses she had left in a restaurant where he was working as a waiter. But Simpson did not believe that story. The exchange continues, with Simpson saying: Probably a nice bottle of red wine breathing on the counter, waiting for you.
You think I'm fucking stupid or something? She fell hard on her right side - I could hear the back of her head hitting the ground - and she lay there for a moment, not moving.
If he did it ...
I looked down and saw her [Nicole] on the ground in front of me, curled up in a foetal position at the base of the stairs, not moving.

What do the Goldmans think when they read that chapter? He couldn't have written it in such detail. The guy who presents him with the knife and sometimes acts as his conscience? The police never heard of him, nor has anyone else.

That explains why of the clothes that were found at his place, only the socks had blood on. Judge Ito should not have allowed it to be raised in court, because there was no evidence for it. Race became an issue when there was no place for it.
He, and three other men, are accused of stealing sports memorabilia from two collectors in Las Vegas. Simpson has reportedly claimed that the items were his, but if convicted of the charges of armed robbery, theft and felony coercion, Simpson could go to jail.
