According to a June 15, 1994 Los Angeles Times article published three days after his murder, Goldman probably met Brown six weeks before their murders, when he borrowed her Ferrari.
Nicole Brown-Simpson's neck was cut from ear-to-ear with her head almost severed from her body and she had been stabbed numerous times in other areas.
When Simpson, 46, had gone to Chicago was not immediately clear, although his attorney, Howard Weitzman, said it was sometime in the "late evening" on Sunday.*Pete Phillips, general manager of the O'Hare Plaza Hotel near Chicago-O'Hare International Airport, said Simpson checked into the hotel at a.m.
Monday, Chicago time, indicating that the football star could have taken any of at least three flights that left Los Angeles after p.m. Phillips said Simpson had made a reservation three to five days earlier, and he showed up "just about the time" his reservation had indicated. The hotel manager said Simpson told him that Hertz, the auto rental company for which the ex-athlete long has been a spokesman, was holding "a function" in Chicago.
Both were fully clothed."Sharp-force injuries," such as stab wounds, appear to have played a part in the deaths, but other causes had not been ruled out, said Scott Carrier, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County coroner's office.
Police said little about the crime, declining to identify possible suspects, offer a possible motive or say exactly when the attack is believed to have occurred.
