The 20th anniversary of everything O.J. Simpson murder trial is over, but some memories — and some who were part of lots of other peoples’ memories — are still making the news.
Enter Kim Goldman, sister of one of the Simpson-trial murder victims, Ronald Goldman. Kim is on a book tour, promoting her “Media Circus: A Look at Private Tragedy in the Public Eye.” The book is a collection interviews with survivors of violent crimes who were the focus of media attention.
She was interviewed herself by Mike Dow for The Maine Edge/Buzz in an article titled, “Kim Goldman 20 years after the Simpson verdict.”
This isn’t the first book Kim has published since that infamous trial in 1995. She has also written, Can’t Forgive: My 20-Year Battle with O.J. Simpson and with other members of the Goldman family His Name is Ron: Our Search for Justice and I Did It: Confessions of the Killer.
More interesting, at least to me, is how some people whose lives were upended in a most tragic and unbelievable way by the June 17, 1994, murders of Ronald Goldman and Nicole Brown for which Brown’s ex-husband, O.J. Simpson, stood trial, have managed since Simpson’s Oct. 3, 1995, acquittal.
Kim has been on a quest to out Simpson as the killer and the 1995 trial verdict wrong.
Nicole Brown’s sister, Denise, has been busy, too. Her energies have gone to creating a foundation to honor Nicole and to advocate against domestic violence.
It’s hard to imagine the anguish the Brown and Goldman families have gone through.
