Twenty years ago, O.J. Simpson was a famous football player who was enjoying a second career as an NFL commentator and film actor. But on June 12, 1994, the public's perception of the man born Orenthal James Simpson changed with the deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman.

Thursday is the 20th anniversary of the brutal murder; next Tuesday, June 17, will mark two decades since the iconic image of Simpson in a white Ford Bronco during a low-speed police chase. As a result, friends, relatives and legal experts are looking back at the case that Simpson was acquitted of during the "Trial of the Century" in 1995.

And reality TV star Kim Kardashian's father is to blame for a lack of justice for the two victims, according to Goldman's father.
