The NFL star and murder suspect was 76 years old when he passed away

Former champion athlete and accused murderer OJ Simpson has died in Las Vegas following a battle with cancer. Simpson, whose dramatic acquittal for the double murder of his ex-wife and her friend made international headlines, previously denied reports that he was receiving hospice care.

“On April 10th, our father, Orenthal James Simpson, succumbed to his battle with cancer,” his family said in a statement on Thursday. “He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren. During this time of transition, his family asks that you please respect their wishes for privacy and grace.”
