Simpson's Heisman delivered to courthouse
June 18, 1997
LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- O.J. Simpson's Heisman trophy -- minus its nameplate -- has been turned over to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
The Heisman trophy was turned over by an associate of Nicole Brown Simpson's family to the Sheriff's Department Wednesday, L.A. County Sheriff's Deputy Kimberly Unland said.
The families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman had been demanding the trophy to help satisfy the $33.5 million judgment against Simpson for the slaying of his ex-wife and her friend. Simpson has claimed he didn't know where it was.
The trophy will be displayed at the Beverly Hills Courthouse Wednesday before a private moving company takes possession of it and stores the trophy along with other items previously seized from Simpson's Rockingham estate, Unland said.
Earlier this week, CNN reported that the trophy was in the possession of the estate of Nicole Brown Simpson and that it had been turned over to Brown family attorney Ira Friedman. Friedman Monday denied having the trophy.
