DANA POINT, Calif. – Louis Brown Jr., the father of O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, has died at his Southern California home, a family attorney said Saturday. He was 90.

Brown died Thursday in the seaside community of Dana Point, attorney Natasha Roit said in an email. A statement issued on behalf of the family did not include a cause of death.

Brown was the father of Nicole Brown Simpson, who was slashed to death in 1994 with friend Ronald Goldman. Her former husband, a football great, was acquitted of murder in the high-profile murder trial, which was televised live.
