On this day in in 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were stabbed to near decapitation in a vicious attack outside Nicole's Brentwood residence. Agreeing a few days later to turn himself in, murder suspect number one, O.J. Simpson, instead threatened to commit suicide, refused to surrender, and led police on the low-speed, nationally televised, white Bronco chase of the century. Partial transcripts of two upsetting 911 calls Nicole Brown Simpson made to police on Oct. 25, 1993 were released during the trial.
