    Sad. I like how he campaigned for victim's rights. His articles in Vanity Fair were interesting; I often didn't agree with his "so and so connected to the case told me this and therefore person X is obviously guilty", but I see where he was coming from.

    There was no scandal she had a very abusive boyfriend that she broke up with and he came bak and killed her. He was not convicted of 1 degree murder but of 1 degree manslaughther and was out of prision in 7 or 8 years.

    The only thing I really remember him from is the OJ trial and the Menendez brothers trial.

    Love his books, and his VF articles were always a great read.

    jprichva saidI am bereft.
    "Power, Privilege and Justice" was one of my favorite shows. Like, ever.


    If you get a chance read "Season in Purgatory" or "An Inconvenient Woman". Couldn't put them down.

    His jaw dropping after the OJ murder trial verdit was read is classic!!! A great writer, and will surely be missed. Too bad he had to miss the OJ verdict reading in Vegas though.

    I had the pleasure of interviewing him. He was a very nice guy and a fascinating person.
