Nicole Brown Simpson's sister was 'sad and confused' after OJ Simpson death

Nicole Brown Simpson’s sister admits O.J. Simpson's death was "sad and confusing".
Dominique Brown, 59, was left devastated when her sibling was killed aged 35 outside her Los Angeles home in 1994, with her late ex-husband OJ Simpson arrested and charged with her murder, before being acquitted in court.
Simpson lost his battle with cancer last month aged 76, and Dominique told Extra: "When O.J. died it was complicated and it was sad and confusing because this could be the close of a chapter, the end of the chapter of 30 years of having a lot of turmoil in our lives, but it was also a 50-year relationship with him, so it was very sad.
"Plus, I maintain a relationship with the children and, simply put, they had lost both of their parents at that point.”
On 12 June, 1994, Nicole, 35, and her waiter friend Ron Goldman, 25, were found stabbed to death in the courtyard of her Brentwood, Los Angeles, town house.
Days after the murders, Simpson led police on a now-infamous car chase while a passenger in a white Ford Bronco driven by his friend Al Cowlings, holding a gun to his head.
He was eventually arrested and charged with Nicole and Ron’s murders, but was acquitted after what was dubbed the ‘The Trial of the Century’.
But in 1997, Simpson was deemed liable for the deaths in a civil lawsuit brought by the families of Nicole and Ron.
Dominique recently recalled how, in the devastating wake of Nicole’s murder, she threw herself into shielding her late sister's children from pain and the media circus that erupted.
She told People magazine: “I knew that was the role I was supposed to undertake. There was [my sister] Denise’s son, my son, Sydney and Justin.
“We played together, ate together, went to the beach together – everything together. It was to help them heal and do things that were fun.
“The things that were being said, they didn’t need to be exposed to any of that.”
