Nicole Simpson’s Townhouse Is Sold

Associated Press

The Brentwood townhouse where Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were slain has a buyer.

The infamous property where the victims’ butchered bodies were found outside went for its $595,000 asking price to a buyer who plans to make it difficult to recognize, the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday.

A Century City lawyer the newspaper did not name will become the house’s new owner when the deal is final in a few days, the Times said, citing unidentified sources.

Ms. Simpson and Goldman were stabbed to death on the front walkway in June 1994. O.J. Simpson was acquitted of the killings and is on trial in a wrongful death lawsuit.

The buyer plans to disguise the crime scene by redoing landscaping and leveling walkway stairs, The Times said. The address may be changed and a wall may be built.
