Ron Goldman Biography
(Waiter murdered alongside friend Nicole Brown Simpson)
Birthday: July 2, 1968 (Cancer)
Born In: Chicago, Illinois, United States
Ron Goldman was a young American restaurant waiter and an aspiring actor who had once dreamt of having his own restaurant. His life came to an abrupt end at the age of 25. He was a friend of Nicole Brown, the ex-wife of the ‘National Football League’ (NFL) footballer OJ Simpson. On the unfortunate day of his murder, he had gone to Nicole’s home to return a pair of glasses. He and Nicole were both found stabbed to death on the walkway leading to her house. What followed was one of the most high-profile and talked-about trials of the century. OJ Simpson was tried for both the murders, at the ‘Los Angeles County Superior Court,’ and was found not guilty. However, no further arrests were made in connection with the case after his acquittal. After the verdict, families of both the victims filed a civil lawsuit and were awarded compensatory and punitive damages amounting to US$ 33.5 million by the jury that found Simpson responsible for causing both the deaths. Soon, the rights of OJ Simpson’s book ‘If I Did It’ were awarded to the Goldman family, as the payment ordered by the court remained pending.
