Has it really been 26 years since the conclusion of what some call “the trial of the century?”
It seems like yesterday when the world watched with anticipation as a verdict in the O.J. Simpson homicide trial was delivered. Simpson became a free man when a jury found him not guilty of killing ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
That fateful day, Oct. 3, 1995, essentially put America on hold, as people viewed or listened to the verdict, with passionate reactions taking place all across the country.
Here are nine photos, below, that show the fervor of that day, all from Getty Images.
