OJ Simpson’s Body Cremated, No Public Memorial Planned

OJ Simpson’s Body Cremated, No Public Memorial Planned

LAS VEGAS (NEWSnet/AP) — The body of O.J. Simpson was cremated Wednesday, the lawyer handling his estate said.

Simpson died April 10 at age 76.

Attorney Malcolm LaVergne told The Associated Press he was present for cremation at Palm Mortuary in Las Vegas.

“I am able to verify that O.J. Simpson was cremated today,” LaVergne said shortly afterward. “Others were present, but I’m not disclosing who.”

LaVergne is handling Simpson’s trust and estate in Nevada state court. He said Simpson’s cremains will be given to Simpson’s children “to do with as they please, according to the wishes of their father.”

No public memorial is planned, the attorney said.

Simpson was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2023. On April 5, a doctor told LaVergne Simpson was “transitioning,” as the attorney describes it, and last week Simpson only had strength to ask for water and to choose a channel to watch on TV.
