Where is Marguerite Whitley now?

Nobody really knows where Marguerite is today.

While many people tangentially involved with the murder case of her husband have become celebrities (the Kardashians) or regular talking heads on TV (such as Marcia Clark and Mark Fuhrman), Marguerite Simpson mostly stayed away from the media during the trial. 

Aside from the 20/20 interview, Marguerite spent the time during the murder case sitting next to her children in court and never spoke publicly or granted any other interviews. 

After the verdict, she has all but disappeared from the public eye and has yet to comment on the recent revived interest in her ex-husband’s life.

What was the case of her husband?

On the night of June 12, 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman, were found stabbed to death outside Nicole’s condo in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. Simpson, who had pleaded no contest to a domestic violence charge against Brown in 1989, was an immediate person of interest in their murders. After police gathered all the evidence, charges were filed and a warrant was signed for Simpson’s arrest.

The pursuit, arrest, and trial of Simpson were among the most widely publicized events in American history. O. J. Simpson’s integrated defense counsel team included Johnnie Cochran, Robert Kardashian, Robert Shapiro, and F. Lee Bailey. Marcia Clark was the lead prosecutor for the State of California.
