On Sunday evening of June 2, 1994, Sydney Brooke Simpson’s mother Nicole was brutally stabbed to death. Her neighbors and police discovered her body with the help of her dog.

More than a dozen stabs were found on the body, and O. J. was held, suspect.

Sydney was eight, and her brother was almost six when they both had to go through the brutal murder of their mother and the trial that followed. They were left with their mother’s family and aunt Tanya Brown during the period of trial.

The dream team of lawyers was holding the controversial “American crime story” trial. The outrage, racial discrimination issues, immense public reaction, and polarized opinions regarding the trial ended on October 3, 1995, with O.J. being acquitted.

The children were held in shared custody with O. J. and Brown’s family soon after the trial. However, the prosecution was still a hot potato for the media since O. J. faced numerous trials, divided public opinion, and became a controversial figure for several years.

Later on, when O.J. was found liable for the wrongful death of victim Ron Goldman, Brown’s family members were working overtime to shield both Sydney and Justin from the public eye, attempting to protect whatever innocence they had left.

Tanya Brown, the aunt of Sydney and Justin, was responsible for taking care of the kids. The shared custody was especially tricky for Tanya because she had to keep constant contact with O.J. due to the kids.

Sydney and Justin loved their dad. There was an open wound of her sister’s death when Tanya had to face the prime suspect every day, reminding herself that it was all for the kids’ sake.

Sydney and Justin were still a matter of public interest when O. J. spent nine years in jail for criminal conspiracy, kidnapping, assault, robbery, and the use of a deadly weapon. There was a controversy in the media regarding them refusing to see their father.
