Simpson trial; he was well-liked by his friends and fellow employees. On the night of July 18, 1995, he was off-duty and unarmed when he was helping his wife Vivienne take out the trash outside of their home. Vivienne noticed a suspicious masked person in front of their neighbor's home. Investigating the prowler, Antranik was surprised by gunfire; he was shot several times to the upper body, attacked in a senseless crime that shocked his community.
By the time authorities arrived, the prowler had vanished without a trace. Sadly, Antranik passed away at 4 am the next morning. Later that day, Judge Ito told the courtroom of the tragedy and adjourned the trial for a day. Now, authorities and Antranik's family are searching for his murderer.
Suspects: The suspected murderer is a male African-American in his early 20s, approximately 6'0" to 6'2", 180 pounds, with an athletic build. It remains unrevealed why a prowler would arrive armed to possibly burglarize a home.
