O.J. Simpson Won’t Be Cremated, Brain Won’t Be Donated

O.J. Simpson’s family reportedly declined a request to have scientists study his brain for CTE, according to a new report by People. 

The Hall of Fame football player passed away on April 10 after battling a cancer diagnosis.

A lawyer for Simpson spoke to the news outlets and revealed that he will be cremated.

Malcolm LaVergne, who is also serving as the executor of Simpson’s estate, stated, “His entire body, his brain, everything, his fake hips, his fake knees, everything,” LaVergne said. “That all goes into the crematorium.”

LaVergne also spoke to the New York Post and revealed his family gave a “hard no” to scientists who wanted to study Simpson’s brain for CTE which stands for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy.

It’s a progressive degenerative brain disease found in individuals who have a history of repetitive brain trauma, such as concussions.

Symptoms of CTE can include memory loss, confusion, impaired judgment, impulse control problems, and aggression. It is commonly associated with athletes who participate in contact sports, such as football and boxing.

“With O.J. everything’s wild, but I’ve been getting calls from medical centers that are doing CTE testing asking me for O.J.’s brain . . . that is not happening,” LaVergne told the outlet. 

A lot of shocking details have come from the death of O.J. Simpson. According to TMZ, sources close to the situation claim Simpson made all visitors, including his family, sign non-disclosure agreements to visit him during his final days. 

According to the news outlet, a source explained that nearly 30-50 people had to sign non-disclosure agreements in order to visit O.J at his home before he died on Wednesday. It was also said that they had to sign an NDA, and no cell phones were allowed in the room during the visit.

It is also being reported that Simpson died while being wrapped up in some major debt issues. According to multiple outlets, Simpson owed Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson more than $100 million before his death. 

As we all know, Simpson was acquitted of the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, in a highly publicized criminal trial in 1995.

However, despite being found not guilty in criminal court, Simpson was later found liable for the deaths of Brown and Goldman in a civil suit brought by the victims’ families.

The civil suit, which was filed in 1996, sought damages for the wrongful deaths of Brown and Goldman.

The families of the victims alleged that Simpson was responsible for their deaths and should be held financially accountable.

The trial was a highly publicized affair, just like the criminal trial, and was closely followed by the media and the public.
